Received my new CTS yesterday. Haven't cracked 100 miles yet but, thought I'd pass on my first impressions. Remember, I'm the guy with the plain vanilla CTs no V. My previous car was the BMW Z3 2001.

I am impressed. Car shifts smoothly. The ride is soft yet sporty. Very crisp on turns---will match the Z3, at least in the range that I drive it. Obviously, not as powerful as I am use to but, it is faster off the start in first gear. It is really a great combination of Luxury and sports car handling. Amazing turn radious easy to maneuver.

Just hope the impressions stay.

What!! Your CTS-V is 400 HP, how much is your Z3? This is a powerful beast!

I have been playing with the power and if you keep it in first gear and have any lateral movement what so ever the car goes sliding!
