Yeah, the 135 is a good car, but the CTSV is serverly out of its league. A better comparison would be an M5 with with $10k of performance upgrades.

The CTS-V is ugly as sing from the font. I do like it however, but faced with the massive depreciation it will suffer in the UK after the first year I'll stick to the 135i for now.

Nice car though....

Its all good. The CTS-V is smack in the middle of the Z06 and M5 on the ring. Its roughly 14 seconds behind the z06 on the ring, and about 14 seconds faster than the E60.

I voted for the CTS-V, but the reality is I don't want a car that big, so I just can't justify spending the money on it. It's a monster though, and if I were in the market for a full sized sedan, the CTS-V would be at the top of the list.

I'm generally all for comparing various types of vehicles, but CTS-V vs 135i? They have nothing in common at all. At least if you're comparing a Vette to a 135i they're in the same price range. Here we've got two vehicles of drastically different sizes, with a drastically different price. I just don't see them being cross shopped very often.

I don't know about you all, But I think the entire Cadillac Lineup is Fugly...

Too many strait lines and outdated shit... My vote goes to the 1er as with the amount I am putting into it with mods I could have had a new CTS-V, but its exterior/ Interior design is absolutely disgusting

I could be mistaken but, the new CTS-V competes more directly w/ the M5.

We can label these two votes as opinion. I think the CTS is very modern looking, unlike its predecessor. And I find it (arguably) significantly better looking than the 135i, with beefy proportions and an aggressively sculpted face. Also, Caddies, Benzes and Lexuses (Lexii...?) might be for old men, but that doesn't stop the C63, ISF or CTS-V from being godless road killing machines. Learn to avoid stereotypical generalizations.

I would like to point to the last part of my previous statement. If you don't shake this notion then it will always stick with the brand. Being an enthusiast, you should know better than "90 percent of the people" who you would ask.

It's a direct competitor with the M5, priced in line with the M3/C63/ISF.

What exactly is disgusting about this interior? I swear I think some of you have never even taken a look at one of these cars. The interior is worlds better than a 1/3 Series BMW.
