This is the response i got when i asked about what had been done to improve the V. Surprised by the quick response as a former Ford T Bird owner they seemed to duck our T Bird issues. FYI!!!

The CTS-V is a car that transmits tremendous power to the rear axle. For
the great majority of consumers in the great majority of uses, the car
deals with this power very well and delivers satisfying performance. We
did find opportunities to improve the "feel" of the car and its
wear-and-tear aspects by enhancing the rear axle. Any 04/05 CTS-V owners
can opt for a service update for their car which includes the installation
of replacement bushings for the rear of the car - this minor change can
enhance its road feel. For the 06 model, we instituted a revised rear axle
assembly. This revision includes some reinforced components to enable
better long-term wear, some ride quality improvements and tuning
adjustments designed in synch with the new Goodyear RSA tire option.

Of course, the most substantial changes for the 2006 model CTS-V are the
engine (a "Gen 4" updated version of GM's small-block V-8) and RSA tire
option (the original tire features optimal performance; the RSA tire is
less aggressive, but more durable.)

Hope that answers your question.
Regards,
David Caldwell

This guy is good...

Sort of cops to the rear end as "enhanced the rear axel" but is corp wordspeak.

For the amount of V's that were manufactured/sold, they could say that an improved differential was introduced in 06 because of..........(a stupid intern)

You did get ansewer though.

Oh yeah, ask him about the NAV system, you might want to wait for a "late model" 06.........

Well I think that the Nav "problems' are a lot better in the 06.

You are supposed to get a couple of free updates.

Want to bet how many years they are behind when/if you get them?

So what mods are you doing/done?

Probably a tune and CAI. Maybe a UUC to shorten the throw. To me the oem exhaust is fine for my taste.

Would like 30 to 40 more horse/tq and then its perfect for my needs.
