    I don't care how much I get flamed. I would totally rock a Mary Kay Caddy.

    I don't care much for gold, but with that interior to match It could be passable. in 5-10years though it'll look like crap. Gold always does on tired designs.

    Far more interested in the car as a whole.

    She looks so small and cute!

    I had a gold Honda Pilot. It took what was already one of the most boring cars on the planet and gave it the charisma of a cardboard box.

    You should have nicknamed it the Goldwing.






    I expect the take rate on this gold paint to be pretty low, and Cadillac will likely drop it for 2013.

    Someone should dig up those photos of the gold '97-'99 deville so we can continue to argue about one of the most personally subjective things about any car.

    I don't know, Gold is pretty universally ugly.

    Im torn on the color. On one hand, I hate gold paint in general. On the other hand, this isnt a washed out gold. Its bold, its bright...its colorful as opposed to other like the earlier CTS gold. As far as golds go, this is one of the best available right now. On the third hand, tho, a bolder gold just might be more offensive... Personally, Id have rather seen a burnt yellow/orange, something darker then the Solar Beam Orange Mercedes uses on the C AMG BS, but not as 'orange' as the 2G CTS Hot Lava, or as 'burnt copper' as the 1G CTS Copper Sunburst Metallic (IIRC).

    A silver goldwing...to go with all the non-black Black Series.

    GM'll never understand. The stapes of small sports sedans are;
    Imola Yellow
    Nogaro Blue
    Laser Red.

    dude, if you think you have three hands, you got bigger problems than paint colors to worry about

    It's not just that it's gold. Gold paint should have similar reflective characteristics as silver.


    This looks like a shade of brown that sort of resembles a paper grocery bag. I'm not expecting a lot of these to be ordered in that color. I think Cadillac is experimenting.

    The wheels look like the first gen CTS-V's.
