    Dealers That Are Not Charging Above MSRP

    Um yah, I'll call BS on the screen adding 200 LBs. I would be surprised if the car is +200, but even if it is, no way it is all from the screen.

    Truck tread draws first blood.

    Glad it was not worse.

    Order bank open date 2025 CT5V BW?

    As a 22 guy possibly changing to a 24, none taken. I don't like the new front end, or large screen for that matter, but I think it is great Cadillac attempted a new design language. I still don't understand why they go so aggressive on front and do nothing on back. But, I think many are ready...

    CT4-V Some thoughts after test driving an auto 4-v blackwing, and asking for some advice regarding manual vs auto

    No doubt the size alone can be the choice for some buyers. Let's not forget budget too. An average 5 is going be be 30-40k more than a 4? Lot of $ there. Having owned both, I disagree with the sentiment that a 5 is too much for the streets but a 4 is not (not exactly what you are saying, but...

    CT4-V Some thoughts after test driving an auto 4-v blackwing, and asking for some advice regarding manual vs auto

    The manual 5 is not for everyone. I had a manual 4 as I waited for my manual 5 to arrive. The cars have very different personalities. The 4 is an extremely satisfying vehicle. The 5 offers a very different and unique feel. There are many turbocharged v6s out there. But a manual shifting...

    CT4-V Some thoughts after test driving an auto 4-v blackwing, and asking for some advice regarding manual vs auto

    Exactly my point above. In the manual, there simply is no competition for the 5 Blackwing. None. Automatic, then the regular contenders are in play.

    Order bank open date 2025 CT5V BW?

    On the 22-24 CT5-V cars, I think everyone would agree the Blackwing has the better front end. Non-Blackwings have the awkward cut in the lower fascia with painted area being intercepted with black plastic, and a similar detail happens around the plastic splitter. But on the 25s, they give this...

    CT4-V Some thoughts after test driving an auto 4-v blackwing, and asking for some advice regarding manual vs auto

    You were smart, my friend. In no way am I saying the autos are not great cars - they are. But when all the dust settles on this machine down the road, the manual 5 is going to be a Legend (and it sorta already is).

    CT4-V Some thoughts after test driving an auto 4-v blackwing, and asking for some advice regarding manual vs auto

    I agree with your statements. I will add, though, if you are buying an automatic, there is competition to consider. If you are buying a manual, there is no competition.

    CT4-V Some thoughts after test driving an auto 4-v blackwing, and asking for some advice regarding manual vs auto

    I think it comes down to why the car is being bought. In my case, it is an extra vehicle to be used mostly outside of work. My commuter is an HD truck. So when I drive the Blackwing, it is for my pleasure. That said, manual all day long for me. No comparison from an engagement standpoint. If...

    Well, if it is not a Blackwing and a regular V, you are certainly getting the better looking front end on a 2025. Post pics down the road when you get it.

    Dealers That Are Not Charging Above MSRP

    I love the idea of yellow, but not so much the shade Caddy uses. Still, against all the black on the car, and especially when carbon bits are added - it is a bold contrast.

    2023 CT5 Blackwing engine failure

    Sorry to hear about the Blackwing letting you down, and totally understand your decision. I would do the same. I owned a loaded 2022 M4 Comp xD before getting my Blackwing. I loved everything about that car, but man was it bland compared to my manual Blackwing. Sold it at a loss after only 2...

    Dealers That Are Not Charging Above MSRP

    Tall Steve's post you quoted is from 2021. At the time, MSRP was incredible, especially on a 5. Yellow 4, I assume you got a massive discount.

    CT4-V blackwing vs cayman gts 4.0 vs z06

    You beat me to it. Most every guy here must have been thinking the same!!

    Anyone installed the Anderson carbon fiber hood on their BW ?

    I like the shape and style, but the way it accentuates the painted strip between the hood and grill is dreadful. Now the same hood, in metal, painted to match the car, that would be very tempting.
