2008 Cadillac CTS first look

I am loving that USB port. Thats what I want on the Camaro.

That radio is sweet. 40 gig hard drive for music and *TIVO* for the radio. This is the first I have heard of it:
But beauty is far more than skin deep with the CTS. For audio, the car comes with an 8 speaker Bose speaker system, including centerfill and subwoofer. Or you can upgrade to a 10 speaker Bose system with 5.1 surround sound. With the navigation option, you get a 40 gigabyte hard drive built into the car that reserves some of its space for a music server. This is the biggest hard drive we've seen in a car to date. You can rip commercial CDs directly to it, or transfer MP3 tracks from a disc or through the car's USB port. We ripped a CD to one of the cars, and found the operation seamless. You can also play tracks directly from a USB drive, or hook Cadillac's iPod cable to the USB port and have complete access to an iPod. The music navigation interface is everything we would expect, with buttons for sorting music by artist, album, genre, or track.

One exceptional feature unique to the CTS is the ability to pause and play radio stations. Similar to a TIVO, you can hit the pause button while listening to a radio station, and the car will store up to 60 minutes of audio. Instead of waiting for your favorite song to finish before going into a store, you can just hit pause, do your shopping, and come back to it when you get in the car.

Sweet!
Wow, I never realized it could do so much.
I'd LOVE to see those features in Camaro too!

Cool,

I did a report in school about two years ago and said that it was just a matter of time before this technology reached the auto industry. I guess I was pretty **** close.

That would be one expensive option, but if it becomes common I'm sure the price will be driven down.
