    I'll be the first to pitch in here... base model I'd say, notice smaller rims, and the dual round element headlights... interesting.

    I don't like this shade of red. It needs to be RED RED!!!
    The 2nd to last shot of the rear, is a good look. It makes the car look sophisticated and mature. If only the lower rear bumper wasn't the tacky grey plastic.

    The car definitley look big.
    And I'm still not sure what to think of the truncated rear dors. It looks like everything got scrunched to the rear.
    The car would benefit from low profile tires too.

    I called that the day CTS launched. It's part of my whole "ergonomic" issue with the car.
    It might work. But I'm not sure. I'd have to see for myself.

    Why has the license plate been obliterated?

    What a beauty. Even this base/midrange model looks like a work of art.

    It looks like the interior is beautiful too. GM really needs to figure out it's photography because the professional photos I've seen don't do this interior justice. Their photos seem to give certain aspects of the interior a cheap feel, which I don't get here and this is a base interior.

    Nice job nsap. Car is beautiful, as always. Don't like the light gray interior though - but that is my preference on all cars. Funny - but those 17in wheels look alot smaller than 17inches. They're not as ugly as I thought when I saw them on the online ordering guide. Definetely need some wood trim on the interior.

    These wheels are unflattering, I think this car would look great with some five or star shaped ten spoke wheels. I can't wait to see this in person to really judge it. I'd like to own one even, but I can't exactly afford any new car, lol.

    stunning, though I agree that it needs to be redder. The interior looks awesome.

    I agree with that, these tires aren't low profile at all. It would look really cool with a nice set of shoes on.

    This car looks really good! For being a base model....WOW it looks really good. Cadillac has a hit on it's hands here!

    Most people don't like their license plate number floating on the net...it's a privacy thing I'd guess.

    Considering the "reader" was able to get inside the car and snap interior pics, I'd say this "reader" has very good connections

    No navigation, I'll say this is close to entry level.
