We got one this AM. It's a white diamond CTS4 with AWD.

LOW-DEAD! Just under $49K.

And guess who was the first salesman to test drive it? :smilewide:

Too bad my customer did not like the $718 lease payment.

Looks like he'll be driving his 2004 Audi A4 for a while longer.

The car looks gorgeous! What color is the interior? It is the exact model/equipment I plan to order, if it has the Cashmere/Cocoa Accents Interior. Any chance of you posting a few more pictures? The White Diamond is still my favorite color! :thumbsup:

$718 lease payment!?!

Looks gorgeous, but I would never pay $718/month for it.

Ebony interior.

Good news.

You can buy it for about $1K a month with $0 if your credit is awsome.

It's the FIRST one we got in, the car does not even officially debut for

another six weeks, so yeah we didn't quite "sharpen our pencil".

That is high for a lease. Financing I could see, but lease should be under $700.

Tight as a Corvette but still gives a Cadillac ride.

I love the out-going CTS but this car makes the

old model seem like a Catera by comparison.

The steering (thank god) does not have the dis-

connected feel of so many new cars, EPSILONS

esp. and the AWD w/ DI models scoot as well if

not better than a STS northstar.

The interior is a bit Star Wars Episode I. By that

I mean it's almost art deco, very well made,

gorgeous and well laid out.

I'm not one to be thrilled with a new car but this

is one product that gets an A+.

BTW: $48,3XX was the MSRP and I have to tell

it is VERY competetive for that money.

Take more pics and do a review in C&G Drives... would make a great article for the section.

I picked mine up yesterday. Absolutely love it. Wife thinks it's the best looking sedan she's ever seen, inside and out. We ordered it without ever seeing one in person. Crystal Red should be called Crystal Red Metallic. Looks bright, candy apple red in sunlight, but looks deep red/maroon in the shade (just like my wife's Magnetic Red Metallic C6). Actually, the color is very close to mag red. Lots of cool stuff on it. Cooled seat work so good I had to shut them off once I was cooled down (was 98 degrees out yesterday). The neatest thing is if you leave the nav screen up when you shut the car down, it automatically retracts, then extends again when you start the car back up. Brakes feel better than any other car I've ever driven, and I've had a couple Porsches and a 3-series BMW. Very progressive, easy to modulate. Quietest car I've ever ridden in. Listening to a CD, I tried toggling back and forth between normal and surround sound settings. Both my wife and I can really hear the difference. Both sound great, just surround sound sounds better. Wish I didn't have to work so I could keep playing with everything. Woke up this morning at 4 AM thinking about all the things I wanted to try out in it.

I believe it was at 'the other GM enthusiast website' that I read the DI V6 was seriously underrated by GM. Might be just one of those internet rumours though...

So how many will you be buying for yourself? :P

I agree....and almost $49K is WAY too much for this car. Overpriced I'm afraid.......

My '07 loaded Sport ($42K) payment is $643/month....with no money out-of-pocket.....and IMPORTANTLY I've got 20,000 miles per year on my lease which hikes the payment quite a bit (I drive the car for work and put lots of miles on it.)

Yeah, but Audi's usually are not all that well known for thier wonderful blue book at trade it time - nor the negative equity the guy may have had...but that is a high lease deal.

My dealership got a black '08 in. I stopped to take a few pics tonight, they didn't turn out great, black car+late night=not the best pics. The ones I took with my headlights on the car for light were worse. I'll try run back tomorrow to get some during the day.

I was in Annapolis, MD yesterday, and decided to check out the local VW/Cadillac dealership (I bought 3 of my VWs there). They had an all-black CTS4. This car is amazingly beautiful, athletic, elegant... simply a homerun design effort by GM. I absolutely love this car.

Great pics Satty, even in the dark. You can see the light hit the angles and it makes for some interesting visuals.

I went back and took more pics, but they're blurry because I forgot to adjust my antiquated camera for the sunlight. Thats not the important part, the important part is that I arrived at the dealership right behind a Jaguar XJS, the gentleman driving the Jag got out and took pics of the CTS and gushed over it. A couple of minutes later a couple in a new RL drove up to look at the CTS and they ended up talking with the Jaguar guy for a good fifteen minutes. All three of them were extremely impressed by it, the Jaguar guy implied he would be back when the dealership was open to test driev and possibly buy it. The RL couple was just as enthusiactic. A younger couple in a Grand Cherokee and a guy in a first-gen Tundra both drove by and checked the car out, but apparently didn't want to join the party.
