Can you give me some more information about this Appearance package that you spoke about. I'm about to purchase an '06 CTS, so i'm hoping you also might know where I can find some pictures of what one looks like with this package. Is this an after-market package because they dont show this set of options as you have described within the '06 CTS options code pamphlet printout on the GM website? You also mentioned that the wheels are different than the performance package...do you have any pics of those too or know where i can find some???

This CTS was hands down the best Cadillac I've ever driven. It's also the first that didn't creak, rattle and groan after some years on the road. This is an easy car to recommend to others and the new owner tells me his wife already loves the car.
One correction to my earlier post. I did replace the dash cluster to try to deal with the "two clocks syncing" problem. It didn't work...when I sold the vehicle, the clocks were about 6 minutes apart.

I can't speak for the steering of the post '03 cars since I never drove a LuxSport but I have driven the standard cars and I agree the new engine makes the car feel lighter. I wish it was available in '03. The ability to use regular gas would have been nice too.

My son just turned 2 years old three weeks ago. But he's the size of a 3 1/2 year old (38" tall). How did that happen?
#6241 of 6595 18" Performance Package and Navigation?
Jul 13, 2005 (7:18 am)
Is it true that you can't order both the Navigation system and the 18" performance package on the 2006 CTS?
Will the 2006 CTS-V NAV support NavTraffic (I'm pretty sure the 2005 doesn't)?

just purchased '05 cts with 3.6, looking to purchase chrome tail pipe tips with rolled edges, anyone know where to purchase?

Stop by your local Caddy dealer and ask to see the Cadillac Accessories product brochure It features lots of add-ons (wheels, car covers, bike racks, etc) you can buy from them that either GM makes or third parties with the blessing of GM. You can also find them on the Cadillac web site. Check the pull down in the upper right hand corner and choose "accessories", then click on the CTS.
I do remember thumbing through it the other day and noticing the chrome tail pipes you were looking for. According to the web site, a pair cost $150.
