    I'm looking for info & pics to help me decide which color Stinger, wheels & mods I want.
    Currently drive a Black Ice, Cadillac Cts-4 with only exterior mods.

    The much converted Deep Chroma Blue is the most imperial and desired of all. If in doubt check Stinger Calendar 2019 " Miss November" :laugh::rofl::laugh:

    Ha ha, that's funny. More aerodynamic I suspect.
    Red is very nice.

    If you want all the bells and whistles you should consider the GT2. As you're coming from a Caddy I don't imagine that would be out of your price range.

    The GT2 has HUD, cooled/heated seats, heated steering wheel, automatic cruise control with smart stop/start (will stop behind the car in front of you at a stop light when active and can pull away when the car in front moves), lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic monitoring, driver seat memory, heated auto dimming mirrors, automatic highbeams, Brembo brakes, smart power hatch, and other things I'm sure I'm missing. I just listed the things I personally care about most. My car is a 2018 and I know they've added things since then that are bette
    Lol I must admit I haven't seen one besides mine either. I've see a few ceramic silver, and a white one and a blue one.

    Ya, I've only seen white & silver.
    The white one looked great, lowered & some CF.

    So do you know the trim levels and all that? Your initial post made it seem like all you need info on is aftermarket mods and such, is that true or do you want more info about the car than that?

    I'm looking for basic info, trim levels etc. The more info the better. I like doing research.
    The main thing is, GT twin turbo V6. I live out of town, put on the highway miles. When I pass on the highway the caddy gives the grunt & smile to pass with ease.
    I'm looking forward to the torque of the 3.3L V6

    Well if you want all the bells and whistles I would opt for the GT2. As you live in Canada I'm not sure what really differs between the US model and Canadian model, but the important things (to me anyways) that are included in the GT2 package are as follows:

    Heated/cooled seats, heated steering wheel, HUD, smart cruise control, automatic high beams, smart power liftgate, driver seat memory settings, heated power folding and auto dimming mirrors, Brembo brakes, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic detection, blind spot monitoring, Nappa leather, Harmon Kardon sound system, rain sensing wipers.

    Like I said I'm not sure if there are many differences between the Canadian models and the US models, so any Canadian owners feel free to correct me. Also mine is a 2018 and I know they've added some things since then, like wireless charging and heated rear seats. I'm sure I forgot some things too, this car is loaded for the price, it's got everything.

    The passing power is definitely not lacking either just fyi, people speculate that the engine is actually underrated from the factory. It's never left me wanting I love driving this car.

    I'm pretty sure it's the GT2 that has my name on it. I definitely enjoy driving.

    Thanks for all the info P22Tyler.
    I appreciate luxury for sure. I'm not keen on intrusive safety features and the stop on/off engine feature. I'm sure some of them can be turned off.
