After reading this a few times and thinking about what you have said I think you are right on a few things, and while I don't agree on everything you have put a different spin on things. I myself have been a little hard on Cadillac and now plan on being a little more patient.. Now, I would like to ask you if you work in the car industry, or just buy a lot of expensive cars, lol...
The reason i started this thread was because everyone seemed a bit impatient and a bit unreasonable towards the process. I am confident we will all be thrilled with the end product when we finally get them. I’m not thrilled with the chip situation and now it appears a slight increase in the msrp. Still optimistic we will have our cars by late summer and then we can tell/show everyone how great they are!!!!

Gm announced yesterday they were increasing msrp on all Cadillac models. $200 for the ct4 and ct5 v cars. For 2021 models. I’m assuming this small increase would apply to us as well.

It appears it did as well. We will have to wait and see what happens. Maybe the dealers will absorb any increases. Lol.

Lets not forget about the gas guzzler tax that is yet to be determined...My dealer said it will probably be around $2200.00.....
Sounds about right for a 5 as I believe the 2021 ZL1’s is $2,100. Hopefully, the 4’s will be less.

I believe they simply debuted the car WAAAAAAAY too early considering not everything had been set in stone yet. They were trying to capitalize on the marketing strategy of the C8 corvette. this in no way changes my decision to purchase the CT5-V BW I just need to learn to be more patient and appreciate my CTS-V for a few more months.

I’ve been trying to block that out but I know it’s going to happen anyway…

It’s unfortunate that I have a mental block when it comes to buying used.

@SIX 40 where are you in Central Texas? My wife and I are highly considering moving out there from CA because....screw this state and it's politics and taxes.

We’re in west Austin about 3 mi from Bee Cave if you’re looking at a map. We moved here 16 years ago (!) from NY for basically the same reasons you cite. Me and my wife grew up on Long Island so we do miss the beach and water in general. We were living in Manhattan for 7 years before we moved and the city had run its course for us. It’s been great here, very low stress compared to the east coast. I would suggest you visit during summer just to make sure you can tolerate the heat. It’s not awful, it just goes on for months like the long winters back east.

Good luck and feel free to PM if you have any questions!
