    So.... I won a CT-6...

    .... in an auction, to use for a long weekend. This morning, through Monday.
    It's silver (yuk), but I asked my friend that is the Sales Manager for a normally aspirated, AWD, version. I did test drive one of the first ones, when they came out, but this one feels different. It's pretty tight, quieter and seems to have a little more pep. I actually like the car. I think it stands up, quite well, against my 740 il X Drive. I think that it's quieter. I cannot find the cigarette lighter so that I can plug in my I Phone.

    Good night and good luck.

    CT6 might be one of those few modern cars that actually look good in silver

    If he praises Ct6 for fit & finish he will be called a GM fan-boy. Such things happen only here...

    congratulations on Your purchase. post some pictures

    Congrats on the the car. I'm sure the one you test drove before was pretty abused as the test model.

    Cigarette Lighter is in the arm rest.

    I'm unclear, do you own the vehicle, or did you just win the use of it for a long weekend?

    Either way, very cool! I found it to be very comfortable and composed!

    Re: So.... I won a CT-6...

    I can attest that CT6 fit and finish has definitely improved from the first cars that hit the lot. My biggest issue was the gap between the rear door and the 3rd window but that seems to have improved on the 2018 models. The interior materials aren't that impressive but the fit and finish is pretty good from what I've seen and as I see more of them racking up the miles they don't look worn out or ratty inside.

    The CT6 Has the most advanced chassis in the industry and thus the most advanced chassis dynamics. If you owned one, instead of constantly criticizing it, you would know.....

    Who asked you anything? I asked him about opinions on the car and comparison to car that he already has ... so stop blabbering and let him talk. Or you think your opinion is only one that matters here and whatever he answer it doesn't matter because it is all about your opinion?

    I didn't asked about handling and track times..read the questions again and maybe you will figure it out.

    Owned one..in Europe? Try to think a little.

    Also going by your logic since so many people criticize BMW 7, S series and even Genesis GMI forum must be full of owners of those brands..right? Since they know how bad (or good) those cars are
