I did notice something else today, my few friends who own an M5 or E55 are not true enthusiasts and have never seen any track time with their cars . However, the few I know with an M3 or CTS-V do take their cars to various track events. I wonder if this will be a similar trend with STS-V buyers.
It probably will be, even more so with the V series compared to the M or AMGs. Because enthusiasts, the type who are more likely to modify their car, are more apt to buy the CTS-V than the STS-V simply because there is and will be much more aftermarket support for the CTS-V.
C'mon man you really can't be that dense. Please tell me which one of these options listed below actually help the V go faster.
Two zone climate control
8 way power seats
Full Leather interior
Leather Steering Wheel
Front, Side and Side Curtain Airbags
Fog Lamps and Driving Lights
Tire Pressure Monitor System
Full instrumentation - oil temp, water temp, oil pressure, rear diff temp
Auto dimming rear view mirror
Power Steering and Brakes
Alarm Theft Deterrent System
All Power Options
Stability and Traction control
You're paying for speed and luxury. Now here's your homework. List all the luxury options available on the STS that are not available on the CTS-V. I hear crickets. Not very many huh?
Oh nevermind. I just noticed you're 18. I thought I knew everything when I was 18 too. Take care. :thumbsup:
All I'm saying is that the STS has more features and options than the CTS. Take my word for it or research it yourself, it's a fact. Hence, the STS commands a higher price than the CTS. Like it or not, CTS is still the entry level sedan. You CTS-V guys seem like you think your car is God and there's absolutely no reason for anyone to buy an STS-V, that's far from being the case.
BTW, all those features you listed except for 5 (nav, xm, homelink, onstar, & headlight washers) are on my 10 year old ETC or my friends 14 year old Park Ave... you have more airbags too. The non speed related features/options that are only available on the V are few and far between. Seriously though, you're bothering to list "power steering and brakes" as a feature of any car these days?
If the CTS isn't the entry level Cadillac, what is? (And don't say BLS, because that's not out yet, and isn't even going to be available in the US.)
