  1. Any pics of Vs with 255/40/19s all around for snow tires?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Sorry, those are the only shots I took that day. (It was f'ing cold out!) My personal opinion is that there's not much of a difference visually between the stock rears and the Sottos in the smaller size from the side or the rear. The depth of tread on the Sottos is what gives it away, but...
  2. thinking about trading in the V for an X5M next year...am i nuts?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Solid choice. Though the whole concept of the X5M/Cayenne Turbo is sort of lost on me, my wife's X5 35D is a terrific long-haul car and drives better than any other SUV on the highway. Plus it's made right here in America.
  3. i just drove a 2012 cls63.

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Help me out here, what's 99M? Is that $99k as in $99,000? Does that include the performance package? Note that Mercedes-Benz finance has pretty good lease rates on the AMG CLS63 which, given how fast AMG cars depreciate, is the only way to go: 2011 Mercedes CLS63 AMG 24 Month – Residual 60%...

    The AMG version with the optional performance package is as fast as the V. Though, with an as-tested price of $139,615, could buy two Vs for the money. Still, the car is definitely a looker (which is pretty rare for Mercedes-Benz). The 2012 redesign adds a much more aggressive take on...
  5. 2011 NorthEast Cadillac Meet & Greet

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Only an hour-and-a half from my house. Very tempting. Passing this along to the Queens/Nassau County V guys. In any event, happy to contribute to the cause.
  6. Should know tomorrow if it is Bye Bye V

    Sorry to see you go, but it's very understandable. GM really dropped the ball in your case and you owe them nothing. My ultraview seems to have stopped rattling at the moment so I'm a happy camper for now. We'll see how I feel when the F10 M5 is available in the U.S.

    Woooohoo! My case settled after closing arguments and I will be jetting back from San Fran tomorrow in time for my Friday afternoon session! So who else is going to Monticelo this weekend to burn through GM's rubber, gas and brakes?
  8. Picked up my car from the Vette Doctors.....Dyno graph included

    Congrats Joey. We'll have to meet up somewhere so I can hear her roar!
  9. Ultraview sunroof rattles and groans

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Mine's back after visit number 2 to the dealer for Ultraview rattles. Complete trim replacement. It was quiet for a week and a half, but it's starting to rattle again. It's tolerable now, but experience tells me it will get worse. Service at North Bay has been great, but who wants to leave...
  10. F10 M5 does the 'ring in 7:55...

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Even more impressive that BMW did it with a car that weighs almost 4300 pounds. Lots of new components in the F10 M5 so it's hard to key on single new component as the critical factor for the improved time. However, the meatier torque curve of the S63Tü engine would be an obvious place to...
  11. So what will GM do to the 2012 or 2013 V to compete with the new M5?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Same here. My V is rattling again after its second time in the shop and the lack of quality in the interior fit and finish is beginning to wear on me. I love the car otherwise (and I love driving the only V in my town of M5s and M3s) but I'm not going to put up with the interior of the car...
  12. Some cool Cadillac Racing swag!!

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Got my polo shirt today. Great fit and waaaaay better quality than the polo shirt off the official Cadillac site. Also they shipped within two days, while the official Cadillac vendor took over a month. I'd buy again.
  13. Featured Vehicle: The Executive Hot Rod by D3 Cadillac

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Hate the roof spoiler. Did D3 do any aerodynamic testing on that or is it purely cosmetic?
  14. Cadillac V Series Labs at Monticello Raceway

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Don't bother bringing a guest. It will be a very boring experience for them.
  15. So what will GM do to the 2012 or 2013 V to compete with the new M5?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Sorry, but I don't see how the roof creaking and popping is the fault of the UAW. The fact that more than a few of us have this problem strongly suggests the design is faulty rather than the fault lying with the assemblers.
