Welcome to the club! I have a 13 Wagon that gets comments just about every time I go out and about.

Ridiculously easy to mod. I'd suggest a Jokerz-ported blower with a ~2.5 upper pulley and injectors as a nice starting point. As someone else mentioned, CTSVOwners.com is a great resource for "proven" mods to the car.

Great! I *used* to belong there - until they banned me for an as-yet to be named reason. Great bunch of guys and gals, but the moderation is... selective.

It's still an amazing resource but the moderators seem to be killing off the "fun" that made it what it is. As the internet turns...

Had a 2012 V sedan....loved that car! One of the best cars I've ever owned. Enjoy it! Bulletproof drivetrain except for 2 weak spots. Supercharger may have that marbley sound. If it does Cadillac warranties it now for I think 10yrs 125k miles. The rear end may whine also. Had that warrantied otherwise @45k miles and I put tires and changed the oil...that's it!
Best of luck with the car!
