The dealer is a multi-GM store, but they pointed out that the Caddys had their own service lanes and the techs were Caddy specific, supposedly no Buick/GMC/Chevy techs would be working on your car.

And the salesperson took great pains to explain that - at least, presently - Cadillac would not void warranties if the car was track bound. Of course, abuse - such as crash shifting a gear box - would not be covered, but otherwise Caddy was "encouraging" track days.
Again, I've got nothing bad to say about the CTS-V... if a Caddy is your "thing." They are really trying hard (and doing a great job at it), but I still don't think they are busting into BMW's segment. I mean, does a guy who has his heart set on an M3 really jump ship for a CTS-V?
