I had an XLR to drive an it was fun fun fun! The way the hardtop convertible folds away is very cool. It also has adaptive cruise which takes getting used to but is great after you get past the desire to want to hit the brakes yourself. I loved the car and didn't want to stop driving!

With some subtle changes, I think the CTS could be a relatively handsome sedan. The XLR, however, is already there. I think it's a really unique, really AMERICAN look.

I never did go for the 'louver' grille on the original CTS.
This is WAY better.

UGLY is all I have to say about that. I HATE to look of their cars over the last few years. No one does it as well as the Italians but then again they can not keep them running

The CTS-V is straight out of the Z06. I think it is rated for 400HP exactly, (loses 5 b/c of exhaust). I think it is an AWESOME automobile, am REALLY leaning on Neda that we need to trade the 325XI in for one.
