Default Im finally done with my V

So after purchasing my '06 CTS-V with only 53,000km back in Dec 2011, tomorrow im trading it in for a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox, Black Granite, 2LT, 2.4L, Black Leather, Cargo Management pkg, Chrome appearance pkg w/ ultrasonic rear park assist, and premium paint. I also got the dealer to throw in a Trailer hitch package and 2 front doors tinted. Cant wait!!!

His forum name seems appropriate for the car swap you chose.

I know the feeling. I bought my V Aug. '11 and sold it March '12 and bought a Lexus GX470. I couldnt be happier with my decision.

Lol! Congrats on the change if that makes u happy.

I'll be in a V2 soon. Drive my buddies V2 the other day which is currently the fastest V2 in the world running a 9.79 in the 1/4. We're taking it to the track tomorrow with the dual stage nitrous kit they just installed. Shooting for low 9's. Still a full interior car with good stereo, a/c, etc. after driving that thing... The interior especially but the car in general made my V1 feel like a bucket of ****
