Traded in 2008 BMW M3 coupe for full boat 09 CTS-V auto. Have been watching this car prior to ever purchasing the M3 but needed more space - so I made the move. Looks are terrific and simply unparralled by the competition. What I did notice about this car is the obvious thrust / torque that goes with its monster engine. But I noticed that the car starts to handle and steer better as you increase speed. The suspension seems to set-up better, steering more response and crisp. My only grip is (don't forget, coming out of M3) is that there are a lot more creeks and noices coming from interior parts and the seats. Great car for GM, yes, DNA of the best cars on the road, not yet.
Recaro seats a must, exterior styling, wheels
Pad interior parts to reduce noise, ad a little more weight to steering effort - a little numb. That's it
