Hey check out this Dutch article on the Cadillac BTS (with photos).
Actually, it's written in german. (.de is Germany's country extension. The Dutch are from the Netherlands, which is .nl)
The significance? . . . . Germany is home to the CTS's main competition . . . Namely the C-class Mercedes and the BMW 3 and 5 series.
Interestingly, it's based on the FWD Saab chassis, and is for the European market only. It's placed between the CTS and the Saab 9-3 to compete with the Audi A4 among others. The dash and center console is interesting.
Honestly, I like the DTS for what it is...a big, American luxury sedan. And that is not meant to be a put down...For the price, I think no one does big sedans with v8 power like Caddy does...not Benz, nor BMW, nor Lexus...all priced much higher then the Caddy. If you look at the performance on a veh by veh basis, I would guess that the Caddy may not have all the bells and whistles of the Europeans, but I bet it drives as well as those cars.
But I do not think the LS430 customer would even consider a DTS until the complete make over comes in 2007.
Me on the other hand, would consider a DTS before I ever bought an LS430.
Hey check out this Dutch article on the Cadillac BTS (with photos). Nice car, I like it alot, especially the interior.

They also have a nice picture of a worked CTS in the Foto-Show area as well.
