    I like the interior better. Looks more refined than the CTS/SRX style interior stack.

    On the BLS, notice the paddle shifters on the sterring wheel spokes, just above the normal buttons...nice touch if that is what they are.

    I also like the analog clock on the top of the console and I like the rear license plate, decklid area of the BLS. Very clean design compared to the CTS, very similar, just that the lines seem tightened up better.

    Detroit News article:

    The epsilon platform is also used on the Saab 9-3 and Chevy Malibu. I've driven the new Malibu a couple times and I think it's the best handling GM fwd platform.

    European tastes are different from Americans in many respects. If this car is a success, it will pave the way for American built Cadillacs like the STS, and the upcoming (I hope) High end luxury sedan. Or even a small set of Cadillacs designed specifically for Europe. The BLS (I wonder if that's the best name) might also find its way to China. It's my opinion that we should all wish this product well. Not only because we love Cadillacs and what they represent to us, but for the American industry that is so important to our economy. Yes, this car will be built in Sweden (think about that for a minute, Cadillacs built in Sweden!), but the home office is right here in the good 'ol US of A. I say, Godspeed.

    Ever notice..all successful race cars are either rwd or 4wd? fwd sucks! You can't steer with tires that are breaking traction.

    I'm glad its not here. Too small for an American Cadillac. But, the CTS could use some of that styling though. Especially that analog clock. That's the icing on the cake.

    My 70 Eldo has FWD too... 400HP on the front wheels. No, it is not a drag racer, but I still get low 7 to 60! Considering the weight...

    BLS is not for US. Don't worry! Just like the DTS won't be a success in Europe.
