Poll - 135i Vs Cts-v

I know these cars are in completely different classes but.
What do you think is a better car, in other words, if someone was giving away a car what would you take.

Im only asking because one of my freinds who is a huge 1 fan is saying its a better car then a V, ill let the slightly biast bmw fanbase decide.

Really? I thought it weighed like 4000+lbs? Aren't stock Z06's in the 11's?

Umm no. The CTS-V is no joke, but it's not touching a Z06.

A stock Z06 can get into the 10's easily. The CTS-V is fast for sure, but it's not going to beat a Z06. That's a ridiculous, and hilarious statement.

The cts-v won't fit in my garage, which is why I voted for the 1er.

CTS-V for sure. But what about the price difference? The CTS V costs double the price of the 135i where I live....

i dont know what kind of z06 youre talking about, but theres no way in hell the z06 is a 10 second car out of the factory. i hope you dont mean it can get into the 10s easy once modded because, well, apples to oranges.

He just thinks the V is an old mans car, and therefore doesnt like it. I however disagree, its just a great car, for any age (and how many old folks have 550 hp cars anyway) and looks good too.

The 1 is a great car, but its just apples and oranges.

It would be interesting to hear why your friend thinks a 1 over a CTS-V. I own a 1 and if someone was going to give me either I'd take the CTS-V without hesitation.

Now, if you take into account price, then you can argue. Otherwise no.

definitely cant even compete with a z06 on a track, its pretty dominant in the sports sedan world though (and by dominant i mean the best.)

Having the choice, of a V or the M3, i personally would take a V (and if you say the m3 is appropriate for an 18 yr old and a V isnt, its all semantics)

As car enthusiasts, i think alot of you will agree that cadillac has shed its image of being old and out of style. I think on the contrary the Cts-V is an attractive car, and see no reason why it should be classified as an old persons car.

Lets not turn this thread into the free periods in the computer room.
The V is what i want, i feel no reason to explain why anymore.
