Well like the title says i went with my mom earlier to "just look" at an 08 CTS... of course i didn't think she would get it b/c she just got her BMW back in March of this year... boy was i wrong... we got there, the dealer had one that matched exactly what she wanted... they came up with numbers that were a lot better than the BMW so we left with it...

I personally love the way this thing drives and feels... I also love the work that went into designing and the use of materials of the interior... note the stitching on the dashboard...

here is the B4 vehicle: (i personally hated this thing...)


here are the pix of the new car: 2008 Cadillac CTS 3.6L VVT Crystal Red, Ebony Interior
(sorry for the not so good quality pix... i will take more 2morrow in the light)





LED reverse lights = teh secks










UPDATE!!! DAYTIME PIX





Dash stitching is nice... it also follows to the doors too... :thumb:





UPDATE VIDEO
i shot a quick start up video for everyone to see... enjoy :popcorn:

side note: i love the way these look when they start up... :drooling:

JusssbougtaCadillac!

It ain't my bag baby but I do respect what it is. Pretty nice.

This website has done it's work on me. Every car I see now I think "Would look nice lowered with a drop and some aftermarket wheels." Then I remember I need to get a drop myself before I can talk.

Interior definitely looks slick. I hope Cadillac keeps coming back.

Oh, the title confused me at first. 3 liter Si, since when did you get one of those? :laughing:

BTW, is the grill on that BMW seriously "filled in." (Or does it just look that way from the picture?) If so that was just awful.
EDIT: Nvm, just saw another picture of an X3 and it is in fact solid. Wow, what was BMW thinking?

Haha, yeah I just meant at first I thought it said a 3 liter Civic Si. I thought :confused:

Dunno man, I checked pictures online, that grill looks to be all once piece. :face-puke

There are tons of alternatives to traditional blingy chrome wheels even for a Cadillac (I hope). Maybe you can show her some examples? I trust you won't lead her astray. :D


Besides, when looking for wheels on a car like that, you want it to be taken seriously and for it to look badass. :lildevil: For me big chrome dubs typically can't do that.
