Re: Test drove my first V and ...

I was going to post (my 1st on this site) on a seperate thread, but this seems to fit pretty well.

I currently own a 02 M5 (E39), no carbon issue :), its actually been a solid car, but getting a little old. Anyway, I have looked at replacing the M5 with a CTS-V. I visited a Cadillac dealership today to look at a 07, the salesman told me its their last one. Didn't get to drive the car, a little pressed on time and it was on the show room floor. I was impressed with fit and finish and the overall look of the car, seats were not as supportive as what I was used to, but seemed comfortable enough. I look forward to a test drive.

Lots of questions (i.e. LS2 vs. LS6, differential life, and so on), but I will keep lurking for now.

Any Phoenix area CTS-V owners that would be willing to meet?

Flyboy (Jimmy) just moved to Scottsdale from up here. His is a couple years old with the LS6; he's also got headers and a cam among other things. Good guy, too. Busy flying around the country, but worth a try.

Good luck, Craig. And welcome back from the dark side.

Thanks for the replys. What are the pros or cons of getting the LS6 vs. LS2 cars? I tried searching for threads asking this question but came up empty.

Thanks,
Craig

You probably won't find a new LS6 out there.

I really don't think your giving or gaining that much between the two.

Both can be modded all to to hell. :rolleyes:

Go drive a V, then try to convince yourself you don't want it. :thepan:
:yeah:

If you take the plunge, stay tuned to this forum ... it'll be an invaluable source of info. :thumbsup:

Both engines are in the Corvettes. Both engines can be modded and tuned. What more can anyone ask :D

Go test drive the V. That will answer your internal questions one way or the other. :)

welcome from SWFL! Make sure you find a STEALTH GRAY they are faster and more rare. I think you will be satisfied with either the LS6 or LS2. Find out more about the local dealer service departments first. Ask around here for recomendations. That will make your decision easier. Then get ready for mod hell. Once you start you cant stop like pringles. Next depending on the dealer and the mods you will do, make sure it is certified and you are good to go. Buy it and drive it like you stole it.


Good luck
Gene
