Nothing infuriates me more with the thought that GM revisited the " Hot V " reversed intake, and exhaust concept , and that Audi as well as BMW use this configuration yet not GM.
I think the fuel efficiencies of turbocharging are better than the superchargers and with direct injection turbo lag can be eliminated.
Next forced induction GM engines with direct injection should be turbo d with the slight exception of corvette which might go supercharged for packaging....( just a guess though on the vette)
I wonder what the $1.80 door handles look like. Are these the XTS door handles? Or is it the generic corporate door handle that appears across the board?
Can GM split the difference and find a $3.00 handle?
Quite frankly, this is STOOOOOOOPID.
I'm gettin more and more excited bout Cadillac, now for that S-class fighter!!
-2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Quadra-Drive II 4WD 5.7L V8, with Selec-Terrain and Quadra-Lift in 'Blackberry Pearl'
-2009 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited 4x4 hardtop in "Deep Water Blue Pearl"
Project Car: 1969 Javelin SST 290
At the same time, if those $5.00 door handles makes the XTS door handles look bad then bring them on.
The overall efficiency of the TT verses the TVS blowers is really really close in some setups and TVS packages more easily.

I actually don't care about the door handles. I said this earlier. It is more important for me for the Omega to have an automatic closing door, like the S and 7.
The reason I bring this up is this supposed $1.80 door handle.
Common sense would dictate that this $1.80 door handle would be at least EQUIVALENT to the LED-lit door handle of the XTS, right? I mean, why would the Omega have a cheaper looking/feeling door handle than the XTS, right? THe only thing that bugs me about the XTS handle is the square indent. I'd think it be a little more stylistic. But it's neither here nor there.
Hope Cadillac realizes that the new S will be entirely LED everything and plans accordingly.
So what's with the $5.00 door handle? TOuch sensor? LEDs? Chrome? What?
For comparison's sake... here's the new Impala.
Main problem with the XTS door handles: the button is too wiggly. That's the only problem I have with them.
Mgescuro, do you have a cat on your lap wearing a full tuxedo, with top hat and monacle?
On on a related but different note the other night I drove past our local Cadillac dealership for the first time in about 3 years. I saw the XTS in person. IMO it is a VERY nice looking car. It was a White Diamond Platinum Edition. I was very impressed with it. I hope the Omega Cadillac will be a total knockout if the eggheads don't kill it with a thousand budget cuts.
