I think I can get a set of forged pistons for around $800 from any reputible manufacturer and be $9,000 ahead, with a little bit of time and elbow grease.
Don't get me wrong, I would love a forged bottom end from the factory, but no one can dispute how pricy the top-end model will be and with the price of gas, any savings on MSRP can help to bring in more sales.
I'm with you on all points. Save one: The CTS - V with the LSA is a $60K car. Just FYI.
