Default Finally! I got one!

I recently traded in a g8 gxp and my h3 on a Cadillac ats. Almost immediately regretted it, the caddy is a great car, jut not for me right now. I need a little drama in my drive I think.

After weeks of searching, I ended up getting a deal I couldn't pass up and hopped in the car yesterday and drove 8 hours each way to pick this up. Made for a VERY long day, especially in the rain the whole way. But it was worth it.


Went back and forth between this one and a centennial edition, but as much as I loved the interior in the centennial, this car was the best bang for the buck. I was really worried about the red interior, but ended up liking it a lot better in person. And I love the overall look of this one.

New 2012 3LT M6






Last pic of the caddy, I will miss that one for sure (but not for long)


All tucked in at about 3:30am last night/this morning


Can't wait for the rain to go away and really get to enjoy this thing.
Thanks for looking!

Super stoked really.

Couple small things I noticed today after the drive home, I'm sure the dealer will take care of, just not as simple since I'm a couple states away.

But I've wanted a vette forever and I finally had the opportunity so I went for it.
