    From what I can tell I don't like it. It looks more similar to the 300C. The huge grill would look better on a SUV than a sedan and makes the car look too fat and heavy (not to be confused with "phat").

    Even more frightening are the spy shots of the interior that look like something from Acura circa 1995. It appears that Cadillac has ditched the hard edges and center pod in favor of a more 'friendly' and IMO bland interior.

    I'll wait until January to make my final judgement but from the pics I've seen I'm not hopeful.

    My only complaint thus far is that the chicken-wire looking mesh should have been replaced with the mesh from the V and current Sport.
    I agree... I like that mesh of the V-grill much better.

    I like it a lot... I'll be putting aside my plans for an '07 and I'll wait for the '08 CTS-V... I think that grill is a killer... It makes a real statement, in your face and out of my way...

    Curious to see how they massage the "V" to make it stand out... Maybe some wire mesh in the grill? The interior of the spy shots looks fantastic as well. Love the steering wheel and the arc of the dash...

    But, as a previous poster said, "I don't buy pictures"... I'll have to see one in the dealer's lot and take one for a boot to seal the deal...

    I think the look is really stunning and will draw a lot of attention. I really like the look of my '06 but I also believe GM has to get this aggresive to win back market share. I mean this car is going to make most cars it competes with look down and out boring.

    why the hell did they move the low beam projectors to the bottom of the headlight housing? i think the placement of our projectors right now is FRIGGIN AWESOME. It gives the car a more elevated, elegant look. Im really not digging the headlights on the new one..

    Jon u think u can chop the lights and maybe put the projectors on top kinda like ours right now?

    The problem with the Chopped mock-up is that the visible part is at an angle to the camera with the center further from the viewer than the right- mirroring it creates a seemingly concave front end.

    The real front end will come to a convex point in the center when viewed from above, just like the current model.

    This seemingly slight difference makes all the difference in the world as to how the front looks.

    Someone asked earlier for a chop with the projector beam on top: I did this in 5 minutes with a touchpad laptop (not my PC with a mouse), so it's pretty crappy, but you get the point:

    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)
