Honestly 5-10 years ago, if someone told me Caddy would make a car that slightly beat a BMW "M" car. I would have laughed in their face. Consider the price difference, I say the CTS-V is one hell of a value. I give them tremendous credit, well done GM.

On side note: Does anyone have the MPG comparison?

Flame suit ON.
Keep in mind, you are talking to Americans that are driving BMWs. We drive BMWs for many reasons, one of them being fit and finish. But I will admit GM is trying to address this problem. The new CTS is built to a highter standard, it still could use improvement. But from the pics I have seen of the CTS-V interior, it looks like it maybe the best GM interior to date.
