    I like the headlights, don't like the grossly enlarged grill.

    Here's a decent idea what it's going to look like in the front uncovered...

    Hey, nice shopping job there.

    If they manage to clean up the awful V shape in the front, I think it will look good. The headlights are key.

    Well being GM has been successful with the in your face styling of the Escalade, I believe they're using that formula with the new restyled CTS.

    Like it or hate it, you have to admit it is a much higher quality looking front than our current plastic one...

    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.
    Can't wait for NAIAS to get a good look at the whole car in person. Hopefully they will have a few on the floor and not just the car on a pedestal... I want to be able to touch the new interior.

    okay, things to notice.

    the fogs are now projectors. HID is still and option
    but the headlight cleaners are now gone.

    in the first link you can see the preproduction model, then look at the top pic, there are a few subtle differences that all together... are .. meh

    there is an odd line going down the side of the headlights to the top of the foglights, it seems to be a part of the style but it looks like a join seam till you realize it doesnt really go anywhere. it breaks up the front and makes it look more narrow. that should be done away with.
