    Got it delivered before Xmas, but parked in my office as I had too many things on my plate. Now I finally brought it home. Only drove 100km as of today, and configured my red key to set to 500hp/street. This morning when I sent my son to soccer game, a guy with a VW GTI stormed past me, and I didn't really bother, as I am not buying this car to prove anything. Of course once I am out of the cage of initial break-in, I probably will have a little fun. Also met my business partner today, and he told me he would have 10 speeding tickets with this thing, I said to him "come and talk to me in 1 year"...

    I have to, A. the new car smell makes me sick (now after nearly a month and some works, it is much better), B. Xmas and new year with kids and family, don't want to handle a car that is new to me and so powerful (my other car is only 420hp), C. Canadian winter (though milder here in Vancouver area). Anyway now that I have it, I agree with what you said!!!!

    Lol! What has the world come to when you can say things like "only 420hp"? I remember growing up and those mustangs had 225 and we thought there was nothing left faster!
    I hear you! My son was born on DEC 16, talk about getting my head kicked in over the holidays!

    I have a 15 Escalade, so it is really no comparison, it is now my company vehicle. But I think something in common is that both of them have a lot of road presence, but Caddy is more flashy, while HC is only for a small portion of population. Caddy has 420hp/460lft, so it feels fast for its size.

    Your red color was my original choice, but I thought my color will attract less attention from police, which is proved to be WRONG. I got pulled over by a police while driving totally normal yesterday, didn't get a ticket though and I was not speeding at all as I saw the officer from faraway, and he still pulled me over...anyway he just told me to drive carefully and he asked me whether I have all season tires...guess he wanted to check it out himself.

    Did the officer say why he pulled you over?? Seems like he wanted to check out the car..
