      That's fine, I know the rest of their cars are very angular and sharp in some areas, I just don't like how it was executed on the front of this car. I still respect Cadillac and the car for what it is. Ridiculous amounts of power and grins at a hell of a price is more the point for me. I would certainly never turn one down and wish I had one. I just don't like the front. Not saying it's objectively ugly, just that the front end is subjectively ugly to me personally, while I don't really have that issue with the rest of Cadillac's lineup(minus the chrome bit).

      Oh, and I don't get all the Mustang bashing. The new GT500 is seriously sick.

      I have to say the CTS-V. I like both, but I like the way the CTS-V looks more

      I'll take the GT500 in this case, since I assume it's going to be my fun car. If it's the DD, a CTS-V sedan would be the choice.

      I voted CTS-V because I just like looking at it a lot more than the GT500. They're both stupidly fast, but if I'm picking one to drive for more than an hour, it'll easily be the V. (the Mustang looks nice too, but the V is kinda beautiful even though it's a big body)

      I voted CTS-V but after seeing that red one without the stripes...I'm re-considering!
