I think it depends on how many 2008's they have on the lot the month the 2009 ships. Cadillac dealers have been keeping their inventory just at the level to keep the 2008 CTS exclusive, just enough to meet demand. If they can keep that up, then they can just taper down their inventory on the 2008's and bring in the 2009 without a hitch and without discounting. But if they have 2008's on the lot, they will need to discount them to keep the sales going.

One of the things I hope for if I can wait it out is that the airbag light gets moved back up onto the rearview mirror. I hate that orange light on the center stack. I am torn right now after attending an auto show last weekend.
The cheese for us mice will be the bluetooth as you have suggested. Perhaps a sunroof fix although it doesn't bother me. It would be nice if they added the heads up display also. Perhaps paddle shifters also?
And the added benefit of having the bugs removed would be a nice incentive but I'm not sure after selling my car in December and now driving a super charged regal that I can wait till likely August for delivery. And even then I have no clue when our dealer would be able to write an order and importantly know what the options really are. Our dealer says he would expect a 3 week delivery on an ordered car if I do it now. They only sell Cadillac so maybe he is right.
p.s. I swear I saw a link for a car and driver video somewhere. I can't find it now. Not even on C&D website.
#12 of 266 09 CTS-V with supercharger?
Feb 16, 2008 (10:16 am)
Just wondering who would buy a 550 HP Cadillac CTS-V when they come out in Q4?
With gas prices in the 3.00+ up to $?.?? is a 6.2L Supercharged V8 that will probably get in the neighborhood of 12/22 mpg something you want to buy?
How much does a CTS-V weigh anyway? 4000 pounds?
FYI I am not a CTS owner... Yet

#14 of 266 sunroof problems?
Feb 17, 2008 (9:59 pm)
I don't know why there is such a issue with the sunroof. I live in the desert. All I did was spend 30 bucks and have a additional layer of tinting put on. Problem solved.
#15 of 266 CTS speedometer
Mar 03, 2008 (1:07 pm)
Man, I sure hope the fix the speedometer. The speedo reads 0, 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160. The numbers 140 and 160 are in a noticeably smaller typeface than the others. I could almost understand if 100-160 were smaller since they are three digits, but having 100 and 120 larger than 140 and 160 makes no sense at all. This had to be an error. And it was a deal breaker for me. This is pathetic. GM, are you listening?

#17 of 266 Opaque Sunshade for 2009
Apr 06, 2008 (10:23 am)
In September 2007, I went with my dad to buy his new 08 CTS, he ends up by buying a Mercedes E350 just because of the translucent sunshade; it’s simply not acceptable.
While I was at the Cadillac dealer I fell in love with car; I drive a Lexus and I never thought that I would consider buying a Cadillac. In my book, Cadillac is for old people, but not the new CTS. The only problem I have is also the sunroof, we live in California and it gets really hot in the summer, so I definitely need a good cover over my head, but according to my Cadillac dealer there’s no such loaded CTS without the translucent sunroof.
I strongly believe that the 2009 Model will have either an opaque, or the conventional sunroof like all other luxury cars. It will be very unwise of Cadillac to lose at least 15% of their customer just by not adding “traditional sunroof” option.
Any idea when Cadillac usually announces the New Year model Specs?

The CTS coupe is hot. I saw it at the NYAS. I love the hidden door handle, much straighter lines, love the back lights that they run from the trunk and up, gorgeous interior (aside from the yellow interior)love the ambient lighting....all the makes for a beautiful car. If you are interested, here is video from the show:
