    Just picked her up yesterday and I've been grinning like an idiot ever since. 400 horses in a 4 door sedan and handling befitting a BMW. This is the first car I've owned where the first thing I do when I get in is make sure the stereo is turned OFF. The exhaust note is beautiful. Of course I'm spending some time in the dog house for it, but it's worth it.

    One of my favorite sedans. I'd start looking for a source for cheap(er) tires now, you'll need some in about 10,000 miles.

    Very nice! How does that stack up against the Charger SR-8 or whatever they call it?

    Make no mistake guys this is a Corvette with a Caddy body on it. One guy brought his to a recent SCCA event ( last month ) with a tiny trailer carry a different set of wheels and tires. We watched him swap them out and put down some serious numbers on the course. Very nice car.

    Sweet ride. I'm jealous.

    I've been shopping/looking at these for a while. My heart belongs to the XLR-V but this is probably more realistic.

    I like the blue or red XLRs but the CTS has to be black!

    I haven't run into one and won't be running it very hard til I get about 3k miles on it anyway, but from everything I've read the caddy should come out slightly ahead. Plus it's a lot more luxurious and comes with a true manual. I was considering both of these and that's what made my decision.
