    You don't even know the definition of pithy....you were sarcastic, belittling and rude...period. Be careful when you throw stones....and don't you dare hold yourself as a bastion of what this forum is all about....

    And I apologized if my comments were interpreted that way. It was not intended. Not hearing the same from you. Just more of the same angry ranting. As you said earlier, it is YOUR thread, so I guess that makes it OK.

    ME: This is useful for those of us who tend to leave them on. My sister once said the same about CHMSLs, but that's the point of them.
    5. A slightly more subdued dark blue exterior color.
    And a nice medium blue-gray
    6. Replace at least some of the piano black interior with matte trim (to battle the fingerprints).
    Or a lower gloss plastic. But won't it all have to match? I'd think sun reflections are now a problem, too.
    7. An 8-speed auto and a smoother and more precise manual.
    8 speed we know is on the way. Supposedly the manual has been improved since the summer test drives.
    8. Real buttons on the center stack instead of the touch. (I don't mind the touch, but buttons are still better.)
    Then you get the dirt & dust problem back.
    9. A bigger trunk (but not a bigger car).
    Wagon!
    10. Speed up CUE and the voice recognition. (I assume that the bugs will be fixed soon enough, so I won't ask for that.)
    11. A sport+ setting that stiffens up the steering even more, particuarly at slightly lower speeds.
    12. Make the platinum interior an option on the standard line models instead of the caramel.
    Make a Platinum Edition too.
    13. Make a cover for the cup holders. I'm of German decent and would never think of drinking in the car, so I would just assume cover them up!
    My Intrigue had a removable ashtray with lid that fit in the cupholder
    14. A tune kit for the turbo.
    Likely
    Convertible!

    and I apologize if my comments were interpreted that way; not my intention either. Now tell me, what options would YOU like to see on the next 2014?

    From someone in the know: The Micro processor that is behind CUE in XTS was woefully undersized which is why none of that is incorporated. They shut down development and have to wait for faster/more storage at an unknown time in future. I sure hope the chip selector engineer got fired. It certainly won't happen in current model year because that is a hardware update that would require MASSIVE software check=out.

    Most people seem to be asking for long lists of improvements to the car, rather than one or two options.

    In terms of options, I would like to see
    1. Better sound system with subwoofer (say $1,000 option)
    2. 19" wheels (at a reasonable cost) (say $1,500 option)
    3. Driver configurable suspension and steering settings (say $1,000 option)

    I don't need it, but self-parking is probably needed to stay competitive

    A convertible would be great too, although I wouldn't buy it!

    For improvements in the base car,
    1. Improved transmission (probably 8 speed)
    2. More apps for CUE

    I would like a wagon with V6 T-Diesel.

    And I will be happy with the rest the ATS already offers.

    All interior trim options are available at your local Cadillac Dealer. The carbon fiber, the aluminum, and all three wood variants are available to replace your factory trim. This includes if you have the factory oil-rubbed bronze look; that can be swapped out for the above mentioned trim kits as well.

    yeah....at about a $1000....best to get it done before your receive your vehicle; most dealers will trade your trim out if allowed.

    In reference to #4. I actually like seeing the signals. That way I know they work.

    In Internet slang, a troll (pron.: /ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is someone who posts inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.
    Please stay on topic.

    Doh!!! Now I'm doing it.
