to V or not to V...
Hey fellas, I'm a newbie so I'll be quick and wont waste your time...I've been looking to get a used CTS or possibley a CTS-V. I don't drive much since I have a 95 STS, that I bought used in 2000 with 17k on it, now it has 40k so you can see I have no use for a brand nerw Caddy. But my questions are simple and its hard to find reliable info on the web since all the reviews are either so one sided so I have come here.
Is the extra coin worth the V-veries?
I heard 03 CTS has problems with its rear diff, so should I look for 04 and newer?
I will have this vehicle for a long time and wont upgrade for newer models, it will be my daily driver, is the V too much power for this since I live in a rural setting?
How is the tranny on the V? does it deliver strong positive throws?
I am a tuner, I like to modify not just comestically but with performance as well. Is it worth buying a CTS-v as is, or getting a CTS and beefing it up instead?
Any suggestions or info would be helpful, I don't want to go in blind when I make the journey to the dealership
Thanks for your time,
