    It wouldn't make any difference if the Cadillac was much better, the Germans aren't going to buy non-German luxury cars in even triple digit numbers.

    I saw the results of a survey of German car owners several years ago. The Mercedes was rated as most desired car but with the worst ownership experience.

    I guess I am done passing (theoretical) judgement on the new model UNTIL I can see one up close and personal.

    Can you explain me then, how can i have a 1992 seville and a 2008 sts and a 2012 escalade with us size license plates in the netherlands in my garage when i'm completely wrong?
    Is the 2012 escalade a classic import car?
    And the other 2008 sts and 7 other 2012 escalades in my company, all classic imports?

    Ever looked at the tiny italian license plates?
    Hello..


    ...and please calm down. I hope I didn't offend you.


    The standard licence plate in the EU is as i have shown.

    The netherlands startet in 2000 with the EU-standard and has the same size 200px-Lastplate.jpg

    Italy starts in 1999 with the EU-standard 200px-Italy_BZ_99_rear.jpg

    GM had to change the rear of the EU-Camaro because of the licence plate
    ( and the color of the lights ) and not just for fun :

    US-Style

    images.jpg

    EU-Style

    images (1).jpg

    Exceptions in other EU states, however, are possible, but in Germany it is very strictly.


    ...and ... there are always individual cases, espacially in other EU-states, may be also in Germany.

    Why ??? Relationships or money ??? I don`t know


    Best regards

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    Here's my 2 cent...

    I've always owned Japanese/German cars. Never in a million years would I ever consider purchasing a Cadillac until I saw the CTS coupe graced the cover of an auto mag. It was love at first sight. I didn't even care if it had any personality..... much like a Victoria Secret super model. That car truly emphasized the "Art" in "Art & Science". I am sad to say the new CTS is all "Science" and little "Art". This will be my first and last Cadillac.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    Why would they model the rear end to look similar to the XTS? The XTS targets an older customer base, this CTS will not attract new customers, it will only cannibalize XTS sales.

    Cadillac did something nobody thought was possible, they brought the brand back by giving us new and exciting models. This is a monumental step backwards for them, the back end is almost indiscernible from a car that is already a couple years old.

    I am in my 30's and the current CTS is the perfect size for me. The ATS is too small and the XTS is too big and 'old person' for me. In Cadillac's obsessive desire to copy the Germans, I wonder if it ever occurred to them that if they kept focusing on putting out new, exciting, and innovative cars, eventually, the Germans would start to copy Cadillac!

    Speaking of the ATS, I sat in one the other day and couldn't believe how small it was! The CTS is a nice size but still a little tight for me. This generation should be a perfect size...

    I agree. I test drove an ATS a month ago, and it was too small for my tastes, so I ended-up getting a CTS which is just right.

    Ouch! the back end looks like it started out well but then someone said "we need more trunk space" so they bumped it up a couple of inches so it looks added on and soft! Not for me!
