Dear All,

I just received 2009 Thunder Grey CTS-V and I'm very very excited it.

I drove 45miles already and have 2 questions. Yr advice will be helpful for me. :yup:

1. I used to own Shelby GT500, but V does not have whine sound as much as Shelby, acutally I don't hear it. Is this normal? I see PSI goes up when I step on the gas but I do not hear any of supercharger. What is the normal PSI for V?

2. I have "service park assist" on DCI, should I take it to the dealer ?


I very new to the V and I want to make sure she is right and perfect for me. :crybaby:

Thanks

BeastyCTS-V,

Hey...congrats on the V. You will love it. Regardgin your questions:

1. Quite supercharger on a stock V is normal. I have heard that if you change the pullies and you will hear the supercharger start to scream!

2. Get the dealer to look at your brake issue.

BTW...search the V forum and check out the V vs. the GT500.

Enjoy

Cadillac went to a little bit of design effort to decrease the whine of the S/C. With some mods you can bring a lot of that back.

Make sure your rear sensors on the bumper are clean! If raining and the rear gets dirty, it can affect that function.

Welcome, I like your taste in color :D

In case it saves you a trip to the dealer, the cable to the park assist sensors runs along the bottom of the inside of the driver's side rear quarter panel. Perhaps it's something as simple as a connector needing to be reseated.

Enjoy your new "bimodal bullet!"

Congrats and may you have many safe miles driving and enjoying your new V in only the best of health!

As an aside, I see you are referring to the V as "her"... I look at this beast and after having it since Feb. this year, I definitely come away with the impression that there's a definite masculine quality to its character and presence... so I refer to the V as "him"!
BTW, kudos on the color as well! :yup:

Best regards,

Elie
