Perfect example why we need an 08 forum!!!!!!!!!!!!

The video on Cadillac.com would show this if it did.......

I dont think it will, but I will confirm this in a week or two when car arrives......

AFAIK, the Ultraview has 2 parts. The front part is an extra big sunroof that functions normally. Behind the sunroof is a fixed glass panel. This is just going by the production pics, spy pics, and how these setups work on other manufacturers cars and the SRX. I would assume Caddy will follow suit.

The "Ultraview" sunroof will tilt on the '08 CTS.

Extracted from the vehicle ordering sheets for the 2008 Cadillac CTS:

SUNROOF
Power Double Sized Ultraview, Tilt Sliding with Express Open and Power Sunshade.
Optional with................ 6DM69, 6DP69
Option Code: C3U

It does tilt and retract. Here's the instructions from the owners manual.

"Vent Feature: Press and hold the front of the switch to
vent the sunroof. Press and hold the rear of the
switch to close the vent.

Sunroof Feature: Press the rear of the switch to open
the sunroof, and the front of the switch to close it."

To gm_eng: Per your post I assume you have in your possession a copy of the owner's manual for the '08 CTS. If that is the case, would you happen to have an electronic version of the owner's manual that you could share?

RAB,

I've got .pdf files of both the owners manual and the navigation system manual. How can I get them to you or post them? I don't have enough posts to send private messages (what's the deal with that, anyway?) Even .zip'ed the file sizes are 1,785 kb and 487 kb, too large for attachments.

Although I like the sunroof, I will not go for one anymore. It causes too much wind noise over 100 Mph :D

I just sent you a private message. If you don't receive or are unable to view the message within a reasonable amount of time, please advise via another post in this thread. I can provide an email/gmail address to send the files to.
Thanks,
Rab.

Dadr, the .pdf files containing the two manuals are too large to post here.
Just sent you a private message. Respond to the message with your email address, and I'll send them on to you.
We really need a file-swap ftp site for everyone to easily download this sort of thing.

Cheers
Rab.
