That's funny and so lame (on GM's part).Supposedly the engineers didn't think 19s would play nice with the MR shocks
Thanks for the info...I don't buy Caddy's rationale as there's plenty of lightweight 19's available. The 18's simply look out of place on a car emphasizing aggressive sport. Are they an option?It was done to save weight. Bigger wheels weigh more, and engineering the suspension for bigger wheels adds weight as well. The CTS is 200lbs.+ lighter than the other cars in its class.
So they make you pay for the $70,000 pkg to get a sunroof? That's a big jump from $59,995 just to get the privilege to get a sunroof plus forcing one to purchase lot of other stuff that may be unnecessary. ThanksAnd no, the sunroof only comes with the premium trim.
Yes, I mentioned that and agree with you. A CTS Vsport with a pano/sunroof should be about $62ish and would be perfect!There are other options that come with the Premium package besides the sunroof, still probably not worth the extra money but I enjoy them.
That would be wonderful. When I was on the mobile build your own, the car came out at $70k, thanks to you I'll go back and reconfigure. I do want cooled seats in addition to the roof.You're in luck because $62k is what they go for.
Several manufactures offer these as option and many of them are forged.I am not aware of ANY factory rims one would classify as "lightweight". They have warranty and safety concerns that the aftermarket doesn't have to worry about.
Check the actual weights.That would be wonderful. When I was on the mobile build your own, the car came out at $70k, thanks to you I'll go back and reconfigure. I do want cooled seats in addition to the roof.
That's list price. Only suckers pay full MSRP.

They're lighter and represented/sold as such...Check the actual weights.
If you want 19" wheels it is an option, you loose the summer only tires though. It looks like they charge $2,395 for it.They're lighter and represented/sold as such...
Thanks for the info, that's quite a premium to go from 18's to 19's but I'd imagine they look good.If you want 19" wheels it is an option, you loose the summer only tires though. It looks like they charge $2,395 for it.
I don't know about the CTS but in two previous MB's the issue was linked to the evaporator drip pan not angled enough to let the condensation drain properly which caused mold. If you haven't tried it already, turn the ac on with the fan on hi and make sure recirculate is off, then very carefully spray some Lysol into the fresh air intake just below the windshield (you should open the hood to be safe), this will at least kill some of the fungus growing and relieve the smell. The Lysol should come out of the AC vents so don't sit in the car for several minutes afterward. Hope this helps.Wish the Engineers would fix the Smelly A/C it sucks !!!!
I've noticed the same smell. Frustrating.Eddie howard said:Wish the Engineers would fix the Smelly A/C it sucks !!!!
Now it make sense...thanks for the clarification.The 62k mentioned earlier is what you should be able to get a 70k msrp car for.
The run-flats are indeed, "harsh", no question about it.How are you guys handling the run-flats? We had them on a prior BMW and they made the ride much harsher than it needed to be.
Are the tires that come on the 19's run flats as well?
