CTS-V > Bonnie... The bonne is nowhere near as nice a car as the CTS in any aspect. The only thing it has going for it over the V is size really...



I hate to admit it cause I love my bonne but hes right...except I think the bonne wins in fuel econ...but thats not fair since the V has a V8..

Screw it and wait for 2009 when the CTS-V gets a supercharged version of the LS7 that will decimate any sports sedan to date.

It'* not a downer, it'* just how it is? The LSx motors are just as reliable as a 3800, the RWD trannies are more reliable, the chassis has been tuned on the 'ring, and GMs hierarchy wont let pontiac have as nice stuff inside.

I'm not ragging on the Bonnie at all. But its a 400HP rwd luxury sports sedan...

If you don't want to be realistic that'* your own deal.

Realism has nothing to do with it. So frequently, you remind everyone that someother car does everything so much better than the Bonneville, and it'* usually cars that aren't in the same class at all. We already know.

Yep. You're crazy. I haven't looked back yet. However, the only issue with the CTS-V that is MAJOR is that they like to eat up the rear differential and spit it out for lunch. It'* gotten to the point that the DOT is doing an investigation on it. I hear that the 06+ rear differential is stronger though. It'* a good thing you didn't test drive it, you WOULD have bought it. There'* no comparison in driving pleasure/comfort in comparison. Two TOTALLY different kind of vehicles though. The CTS is a lot sportier.
