Found your post several months too late. I'm in the same boat. Just wondering if you chose the CC or the regal?

we went with the CC. if you drive them back-to-back the Regal (in T01 guise) vs the CC base DSG. its like going from econo-box to luxury car. the CC rides better (firmer but controlled), engine is more refined (less "punch" but not by much), the interior looks about a million times better in the CC, especially in the night. the profile of the CC (looks longer and lower) is better than the narrow/tall of the regal. Also, at the time the CC was cheaper and had 0% financing.
If you can score a loaded up regal for the price of a base CC (28-29k) i'd go with the regal but otherwise the CC is just a nicer place to be every day. I've gotten more compliments in the CC than i have ever expected. It looks, feels and drives like a much, much more expensive car.
But, drive them both in the same day. Go for longer trips (4-5miles). If the buick dealer has a used CC on the lot take that for a spin...even a used CC will show you the massive difference between the two cars as far as "feel" goes.

After the reorg, GM shut down the large Buick dealership in my town and kept the small one - don't know what was behind that. I've been interested in the new Regal GS but I doubt our little dealership (showroom only holds on vehicle) will ever get one in if it isn't ordered. So this week I'm visiting relatives in Phoenix and I thought maybe I'll be able to check one out while I'm here. I was surprised to find out the Phoenix only has 2 Buick dealerships in the entire metro area. Is this the case in the rest of the country? Is the Buick dealer network decimated?
