Only thing I don't like is the Bose stereo.

I took it through a few nice roads and was impressed even with the cooler weather.
I'm excited to get it Monday and start learning new things. I'm also anxious for the Spring Mountain Driving School, included in the purchase of the car.

The dealer is the one who sold the Denali to me, also screwed up the service on the Denali returning it with grease on the door and seats. When I mentioned it the sales manager was like, we all know about your problem and believe me you have nothing to worry about. I met him when I had my 09 with all the problems. This was right after the dealership got the Cadillac brand from another dealer whom GM refused to renew the license with. Honest person and a no pressure sale. So far a pleasant buying experience.
Wow..... Enough said.

Like I said, I'd love to get my hands on one.
Coming in 1st and second in the 24 of Daytona sure didn't hurt my opinion about them either.
Nice ride.

One example; in 2000, I was dating a smokin' hot redhead with a Pontiac Sunfire. At the time, it was about six years old. The dash was actually coming apart. Up in the center, nearest the driver. The thing actually had space.
Pics of redhead?

What became of her?

No pics but she was a runner, distance runner even. I met her in the gym. She had a butt you could bounce a quarter off. Bright smile with killer green eyes too.

What happened? She dumped my ass like a ton of bricks.

She dumped me and called like every six months. I was friendly but then one day she called and I'd had enough. So I asked,"You married yet". There was a long pause and she answered she was engaged. So, me being the wise ass, "What you calling me for then". She never called again.

Bitches man. You can't have some dude on a string in case shit with the current dude blows up.

I'd like to get my hands on one of those to compare it to my 525i.
No comparison in HP obviously, but the handling is what I'd like to test out.
Fit, finish, and the rattle factor too.
I hear the CTS-V handles sinkholes better.

WOW!!! Taking the car to work twice this week makes putting up with all the BS less annoying. Today was the first warm day we have had, don't have a winter set up yet so taking it easy on the cool pavement. WHAT A BEAST!!! Damn. Blimped the throttle and your over 100 in the blink of an eye.
I'm waiting for the certificate to take the driving course in Spring Mountain. This car is a well put together package. Amazes me this much power and it puts it to the road just right. The steering is amazing and the trans shifts better than my MDCT in the M3 I had.

Stunning in Crystal white, carbon fiber package, luxury package, sunroof and a few other things. If you get a chance to drive one, jump on it.

Now to change my name to 17CTSV

Very sharp looking ride with gobs of power.
Almost bought one when wife got pregnant with our 3rd kid and realized that ain't gonna work.

We had a '12 CTS and really liked everything about it but needed more room.

Congrats man, badazz!

It's been raining every day since I got the car so have to wait until tomorrow to clean it up and get some good shots of it.
Yesterday we had 68 degrees coming home. I passed a car and decided, what the hell. When that blower kicks in it is like hitting second stage on a lunar launch from ground control. HOLY SHIT!!! I learned to respect the beast very quickly or the beast will own you. WOW! That slam of power is just amazing.

Oh and the poor car I passed, it was a buddy from work and the next day he said I sounded like an F18 hitting the burner next to him as I passed.
