    CT4-V CT4-V Blackwing General Photo Thread: 4BWs Make Everything Look Better

    Not yet. Hasn't made an impact on the cooling as-is. When I get the new plates I'll move it to the center and report back. I don't mind it off-center, personally. I have 0 doubts it'll work centered, just pretty lazy and it's fine for now.

    MT Buyers Only: If MT was not available, would you still buy a Blackwing?

    Would be an RS3 or an M3 for me without the stick. I was waiting on allocations at multiple dealers for both when I found my car sitting at the dealer.

    Finding Allocations

    I had to compromise on sunroof, PDR and HUD (not in my car). Wound up with Carbon 1 and Carbon 2 instead. And honestly? Don't regret it one bit. Car is amazing, and the carbon looks pretty sweet on a black exterior.

    Best driving roads in your state for Blackwings?

    It's great practice on first/second gear starts and clutch modulation too. Useful for a rookie 6MT driver like me.

    Best driving roads in your state for Blackwings?

    A little further southeast in NY and you've got all the great roads in Harriman/Bear Mtn too. Arden Valley/Tiorati Brook/Kanawauke all great and 7 Lakes is a classic, though tends to get some slow moving traffic during weekend afternoons.

    CT4-V Transporting bikes within.

    Sweet ride! And I totally understand it. I was apprehensive myself at first with a much cheaper bike. One note - I don't think it will work on PPF. My car has high impact areas done so only the front of the roof (with ceramic everywhere). Re: paint marring, I haven't noticed any on either...

    CT4-V Transporting bikes within.

    Not inside, but I've been using a Seasucker and it works just as well as it did on prior cars. Road bike, don't have pics on my Caddy but here it is on my Alfa. Done multiple highway road trips at... proper highway speed and no issues at all. Goes on in 5 mins and comes off even quicker...

    Pics of your Blackwing in regular parking spots

    License plate says yes, actual location (RI) says no.

    Check this crazy sh*t out

    This one is up there too. https://www.trinitycadillac.com/used/CADILLAC/2022-CADILLAC-CT5-V-98f354930a0e087f1aa1d10f2e08814a.htm These guys also still have a 4BW available that I called on a month ago, before I bought my car. I explained that I had a deal at MSRP from a dealer further away...

    4BW Front Plate Mounting

    Circling back now that my plates are in on the Cravenspeed grille mount (The Grille Mount Platypus for 2020-2022 Cadillac CT5). Photos attached. It definitely works. I'll mess around with exact placement (I may center it or move it over further left, but that's easy enough). On/off is easy...

    What made you choose a Blackwing and what else did you consider?

    I think so too. Have plenty of seat time in the F87 and F80 M3s (including on track) and they were too sterile then. Hate that steering rack. Can't imagine the new ones have gotten more involving. Blackwing is a keeper.

    What made you choose a Blackwing and what else did you consider?

    I was waiting for allocations on both the G80 M3 and the 4BW. Criteria was 4 doors and a stick. It's my first real high-performance car and I'm coming out of an Alfa Giulia lease, but have lusted after something like this for a decade and obviously as we all know, cars like this are rapidly...
