hmmmm hennesy...?
When I first bought my 2014 V-Sport (totaled in a rear ender, now have a 2015 V-Sport) I contacted Hennessy. At that time they were evaluating the V-Sport. After several months of testing they decided not to do any performance modifications for the V-Sport, sighting a number of reasons I don't recall. I contacted them again about 2 years later and got the same answer. There are a number of performance tunes out there and most popular is TriFecta. :)

I'd recommend checking the tires... closely! Look in the tread grooves for cracking if they are summer only tires. If they are Pirelli P-Zero's, work new rubber into the deal. If they're brand new they are great sticky tires for the first 5,000 miles, then they become noisy, hard and slippery and you'll will want new tires.

Is your Hennesy the hennesy of viper fame, or is there a separate Hennesy Cadillac dealership?

yeah it is the one at Hennessy…..
You might want to go back a few years (maybe a dozen or 15) and check out "that" Hennessy. He duped a large number of Viper owners, got into many lawsuits, and went bankrupt only to resurface. I wouldn't trust the guy as far as I could see him...

Just if you want the CarPlay/Android Auto upgrade as well as a faster interface, I offer plug n play kits for $550 bucks, if you’re interested. Also I own a Vsport and it is a fantastic car I love it, so does my wife but I don’t let her drive it if I can help it lol

Well that was clear as mud. OP says driving to GA, nothing about a/the dealership. Another poster asks about Hennessy, someone else mentions Hennessy evaluating performance options. What conclusion is one to draw? Guess it's easy if you live in GA. BTW, I've begrudgingly learned to "overlook" misspellings since the days of spellcheck...

I went to Hennessy Cadillac of Atlanta and picked it up. I noticed some things that I had not noticed some of the faux carbon fiber trim pieces are coming loose. While I was driving back home, I got a notification saying "Rear axle system Off" no dash lights are on. I have a little over a month left on my original warranty and the cpo 100k. So I scheduled an appointment with my local Caddy dealer to have it checked out....BUMMER. Car was absolutely amazing otherwise. Any thoughts?
