Got a CTS-V Wagon for a few days and....

Long story but I am in a CTS-V Wagon for a few days and this thing is insane. So would I spend $70k on a station wagon... nope. Does it look better than the Coupe or Sedan- yes in my opinion. The acceleration on this thing is beyond fast no matter what the speed. Transmission is a little notchy but did I mention the acceleration??? Feels like a Viper.I really have no complaints with the car. What a sleeper.

If I wanted a wagon, the CTS-V would be it, I have even considered the sedan a few times. Definately a sweet car.

I really wish this car looked better - it is a very interesting machine, but the looks just make me want to run. I'm not a snob, but I would not want to be seen in it...

This is EXACTLY what I said about the E60 M5 when it first came out.
But it grew on me...

+1 my dad has the coupe and he loves it, the only con is the interior trims and pieces have the feeling of being cheap

And i think it is the best looking wagon design in years.... Thoughts after my week in it:
-My M3 has the torque of a moped after driving this.
-m3 handles better
-the acceleratin at any speed is as good as anything i have ever driven
-i love airconditioned seats
-clutch is HEAVY
-why cant bmw do contrast stiching as a reasonable option in the m3? They do it in the m1.
-fit and finish is outstanding
-adjustable suspension is as good as the m3
Did i mention the torque and acceleration? Until you drive the caddy u have no idea how slow the m3 is.
i averaged 14.5mpg all week!!! That was getting on it a lot....
