    Thumbs up Some pictures of the new V!!!

    I picked up a brand new 2012 Crystal Red V Sedan(A6) a couple of weeks ago. I traded in my beloved C63 which I swore I would never get rid of.Click here to enlarge

    The interior, handling and ride comfort are all superior to the C63. As far as power is concerned the V has plenty of it with the potential of much much more. I already ordered and received an Airaid cold air intake. An upper pulley and tune is in the near future. I'm hoping this combo will net me in the 530 to 550 rwhp range. I plan on a baseline dyno run prior to any mods.

    Here is a pic of the C63 at MIR earlier this year. This car was a blast to drive. Anyone in northern NJ interested in picking it up, Mahwah Cadillac has it still.

    Enjoy the Caddy, sir! I was torn between the 12 CTS-V coupe or the C63 coupe...I went with the MB, but I see you did the opposite. Sick color, and it is a SICK car! Click here to enlarge

    I was toying with the idea of changing platforms for a while now. The Caddy was on my list back in 2010 when I bought the C63 so when the opportunity presented itself now the deal was too good to pass up. I was seriously considering a Weistec for the C but I decided against it. In the long run I think the V has more potential.

    I appreciate the offer of help. I plan on using AUTOCouture once I'm ready. It helps that he's nearby.

    Thanks for the CTSVowners tip too. There's some good stuff on there. Trying to absorb as much as I can.

    The red color is fantastic.

    I think you made a great choice. The C63 is excellent but this car seems a little more grown up. Easy upgrades help as well.

    Enjoy it, congratulations.

    Thanks.

    The ease and cost of upgrades was a big part of my switch.
