Was looking at new cars today and my local dealer has a '07 V with roof and FG2 that has been on the showroom floor for over 200 days. Bottom line, $18k + TTL and my three year old '05 w/ 30,600 miles in trade. Probably could bargain another thousand out of them; they want to move the '07.

Deal or no deal?

BTW, they have a base Z06 (stripper, no options, great trackday car), machine silver metallic with titanium gray leather selling at sticker of $70k.

What's this 2008 M8 on order?? Maybe you should just save the $$ for modding that?

I really don't like the thought of you leaving the Cadillac world so maybe getting you into an '07 V will keep you here longer! Personally, I'd wait for the '09 V...

...forgot, I've also got about $3k saved up on the GM card so deduct whatever the allowance is towards the V.

Doing the math, under $6k a year to drive a V doesn't sound too bad.

The '05 is bone stock except for red calipers, window tint and clear bra - Not even a !CAGS. For the '07, JPA has an attractive 112 to 122 Maggie upgrade price.

Sounds like a great deal. Heck, I'd be all over it just to upgrade to a steering wheel with radio controls.

Why? New car w/ 100k warranty and all the things that come with it like perfect paint, wear items such as tires, brakes and clutch are all new. Larger displacement engine, heavier diff case, bigger halfshafts, refined trans, blah, blah, blah.

Rick - get the new one. I know I would.

On a side note, I sure miss my flashed PCM. I just paid $800 for a spare PCM with Stage II flash. The only thing we can change is TQ management, top speed limiter and idle rpms. Not even close to what you offer Rick. Oh well, I just paid $800 for a shift kit. The worst part is it's VIN specific. Once I'm done with it, I throw it away.

In Ohio you'll only pay taxes on the difference. Just think in 5 years when the next V is old you can do the same thing. Of course you'l be driving a generation behind. How would effect your web page? The LS1 based engines were around for 10 years. LS2 might be a good choice. The only change maybe dod. Just make sure the battery is charged. They have another for WW? :)
