    No spare tire, WTF?

    Cheers, Cubby. Good to know it's normal... but I still feel kinda odd without a spare in the trunk. Anyone else feel like me? Failing that, anyone know where I can _get_ a spare?

    Nice one, Dave (sorry for the abbreviation - Aussies struggle to say "David" - let me know if it bugs you)! Just grabbed my first V recently. Loving it so far. And yeah, awesome to pull up next to a BMW or Merc and just let fly... even the M series or AMG tuned versions. Mostly. :-) Managed to...

    No spare tire, WTF?

    Hey all. I'm new to America (as well as to CTS-Vs), but I'm curious about the lack of a spare tire in the trunk. There's room for one, but there's only this electric pump thing. No tool kit either. As an Australian, I'm very used to being able to perform minor repairs on my car when on the...

    New Australian Member Damo... 2010 CTS-V soon to arrive...

    It's here... Okay, so my car has arrived and I've had a bit of a drive now. Took it on some freeways to do my "errands". Yes dear, I always wanted to try that supermarket on the 610... :-) I hit the gas a bit, and my first thought was "yeah, it's fast, but only feels a bit faster than my...

    Web developer, eh? Me too! Well, web and iPhone... and back in Australia (before I recently became a stay at home Dad). Mainly did Python and PHP with the occasional Ruby on Rails project (having happily abandoned .Net development about 5-6 years ago). This is the post that made me think you...

    Cheers Rob. Really been digging the forums. Love the level of passion and activity - with only a small number of members. Clearly you and Tuna are keeping it real. Love the updates, rumours, freaky news, Tuna's social activity in traffic and all the rest of it. Nice work. Quick question...

    Living in Heights for the moment. Reminds me of some older Melbourne suburbs that have turned hipster / bohemian (notably Brunswick and Fitzroy - for those who know Melbourne). Oh, and if you didn't know, Heights are north and a touch west of downtown (about 5 miles or so), wedged between Katy...

    Video: Super Hot Girl Takes a Scary Ride in a Cadillac CTS-V Coupe

    Just for those out there who didn't realize there's a follow-up video... Did this factor into my decision to buy a CTS-V? You'd better believe it did!!!

    Hey, thanks Tuna! You're right about the roads in Houston. Flat as. Mind you, you can get some curves going when changing from freeway to freeway - but finding on-off ramps with no traffic on them are all but impossible at civilized times of day. I'll check out the track days at Hitchcock...

    Hey all, I'm new in the US from Australia. Looking to thoroughly enjoy my time here... and the CTS-V is part 1 of the plan. Any tips for maximising part 1, including maintaining it and where to drive it, feel free to leave it here. By the by, Gonzo was my nickname back at college (big nose and...

    Just visited, and dropping a line as requested. :-) Actually haven't got my CTS-V yet (only 4 days to go...). Loving some of your posts, check out my intro... and let me know if you know of anything great (not just driving roads or tracks) around Houston area... or anywhere else, for that matter!

    Video: Cadillac Owner Parks His CTS On Neighbor’s Roof

    Driver error for sure. "Hey honey, watch me jump over this house!" Did you see the angle of the roof, though? Surely a boot-full and he could have driven off! ;-) Also, "sounded like an earthquake". Tee hee. Driver must have left the engine running. Classic accident!

    Hey all! I've just got over to the US from Australia - and my-oh-my, loving the choice in cars and the price of cars! Really, really loving it. I needed to get a family car (for my two daughters) and for the same price as a new Honda Accord in Australia, I can get a 2-3 year old Cadillac CTS-V...
