Regarding options for manual transmissions for the 09 CTS...why can't one get a V6 DI, manual transmissions, with all season tires (why do they force you to get summer tires...what if you live up north??) - who is the genius in Cadillac who makes up the option packages anyways??? :confused:

The 2009 Cadillac CTS RWD with manual transmission and 3.6L Variable Valve Timing V6 DI Direct Injection engine requires the Summer Tire Performance Package. The base model without the Direct Injection engine can be ordered with the manual transmission and does not require the Summer Tires."

I still don't understand... if I can buy a RWD automatic DI with all season tires, why don't they offer a RWD DI MT with all season tires? Is there a performance/traction difference with MT vs automatic that necessitates the change in tires?

Does everyone who purchases a CTS DI with automatic transmission with all season tire switch to winter tires in the winter?
