I love the first couple of paragraphs about the new Cadillac CTS-V coupe in the latest 'Car and Driver'. Jo doesn't understand...but my car now passes the test with flying colors Good bye fat lady.

Quote:
Disregarding the tony black slacks he’s wearing and the wet garage floor, Dave Leone is on his knees. “Look at this,” he says, shoving his hand between the top of a Cadillac CTS Coupe’s rear tire and the upper fender lip. “I call this the ‘Leone Finger Test.’ If three fingers fit, the gap’s too big. What I got here is two and three-quarters, max.”

He’s not done yet.

"Leone next positions a ruler flat against the side of the flared rear fender and flat against the tire’s sidewall. “See that?” he asks, beaming. The ruler is perfectly vertical. “The wells on this car are completely filled, and the wheels line up flush with the body. Makes it look squat, purposeful. If you’ve got wheels just floatin’ around in there, well, to me that looks like a fat lady on skates.”

That's great. I agree, 100 percent. It makes your car look so much more capable (and tough).

Any recommendations on a shop you trust to install some Eibach springs on the M?

Tirerack.com, that sells the Eibach springs, suggests a number of different shops in/around SLC. Any experience with any of these shops?

Id be scared to take my M3 to Big O to install springs. I wonder if that Streamline place for Audis would do it? They mod some really expensive cars. Or we can ask Jeff where he had his springs done.

I'm sure Kevin's shop would install them too...

And I'm ready for the weekend to start today. Maybe I'll do that...

For the diesel fans, it looks like the 335d will be getting the MSport Package option starting this year:

No more wagon for the 5. No 335 wagon. MY 2010 is super short...MY2011 out in a couple of months with the N55.

Where will I find a hot wagon in 2 years?

Is there such a thing as a "hot" wagon?

Sorry Nate they are right. Even the M5 wagon, while cool... It's still a wagon. Were Americans, we are programmed to not like them. I'll take my X5///M anyday.

EDIT: thanks Parker, looks like a decent option.
