as I logged in Iwas thinking about how there would be nothing new to look at...WRONG! Sexy car...and by the looks of things there is nothing unnecessary on the car - I lioke pretty much all that I see.

My Third car has arrived.

That is it, I am switching from a Chevy Fan to a Die Hard Caddy fan. (May be after the Corvette)

The rear and side are awesome, the front I'm not sure... it looks kinda... crosseyed(?). The front does look mean though, at least. I'll have to see the front in person to get a full impression, but the rear and side look great.

My knee jerk reaction is that I prefer the current CTS' front end for now. Time will tell whether the V series nose job will warm up to me. But I think that's all I have to complain about the car...

I don't think the add-ons were designed to the same level as the rest of the car. The extra slashes and creases and bulges detract from the strong (yet clean) lines and shapes of the regular CTS.

Front-end is fine and I actually like that the grille follows the earlier Art & Science proportions in this execution as it's consistent with earlier A&S Cadillac’s (such as the XLR). It also leaves room for the GIANT AL GORE HEAD EATING air dam.

Also how awesome are the Peter-Built sized exhaust pipes and HOLY CRAP, the Brembo's are bigger than the rims on my Mini!

That's because technically you weren't:

Good, glad someone was paying attention. Sheesh, I can't believe you actually went looking.....Ok, I'll re-phrase, I can't believe I'm the first to start a new thread about this. Better? Whatever, now I know why I don't post much here. I still say it should be front page news. Wonder what's up with that?

Hot, subtle, bold and very Cadillac like. (good continuation of A&S)

As far as the mesh grille, as they said it helps to feed oxygen to the

car's engine, radiator & intercooler but the best thing about it is how

it pays homage to the V-16 Grand Touring cars that bitch-slapped

the entire luxury car world back in the 1930s.

I really want my thoughts to be heard! from the other thread....

I'm in love.

Though a couple of the effects I'm not in love with on the standard CTS are highlighted more because of the side skirts, namely the extreme beltline rise, the uninventive slash just below the doors to seperate the monotony, and the C-pillar that echoes STS.

but that face is simply beautiful and mean.

AND KUDOS on the detailing seperating the V from the standard. The lines/slashes next to the fog lights, all that extra definition, and the new depth to the face, the effect of it screaming out at you more than the standard are awesome, and needed, and the side skirts help. The standard car's profile will rise even more thanks to this. They can go even further with this package to make it less of a garage shop job, but they went farther then I expected. Look at GM surpassing my expectations.

there was an article recently at edmunds that asked the questions why V-series sales were in the dumper. this car will prove exactly why. along with the entry price and screaming performance buyers in this price/performance ambition stratosphere are looking for real exclusivity when it comes to LOOKS. The car needs to look like a balls out performance machine. and this thing just dunked it in that department.
