I forgot one thing. I wouldn't get a car out here where I live, I drool over 07 and up crew cab 1500 Chevy's or Sierra's with the Maxx motor. Preferably the 6.2 and 6 spd auto.
At a minimum I will own an 09+ CTS-V. My mind is made up and the price is justified. That is as long as nothing outfrickenrageous comes out between now and 2013 when i'm in the market again.
So, my vote is you wait one more year and get an 09 CTS-V for around 35k
since manual isnt really wanted just get the G8 GT or GXP.
cts-v is cool but the diff problem scared me away personally and cuz there really is no solution to the problem which is why i got the TB.
What do you mean the 5.7 LS6 suits the cts-v better??:dunno:The CTS-V is the way to go. Preferably the 05 with the LS6, 5.7 vs 6.0 with same hp.The motor suits the car better
I'm thinkin the LS2 has a bigger aftermarket for it.. butthe motor is lighter and stronger, wasn't the z06 the only other one to have an ls6? It's more efficient, makes same power with smaller size. Plus the ls2 was only for the last year of that body style.
