I can't recall the last time 14 in Brembo's on an entry level car and don't forget
CAGS.....LOL (not that it's a desirable option).
If it makes you feel better to think of the CTS-V as fast entry level vehicle, then have at it.
I've had Lexus, Acura, Saab, Honda, and even a couple of Corvettes. My latest 'entry level' purchase beats them all hands down in every category.
