Frankly, bench seats remind me of something an old fart would drive around. At 57 I still don't consider myself an old fart! I think I would have to reject a Caddy with long bench seats. I also notice then I often times put my hand on the gear shift on my current ride (an Infiniti 1994) so I would miss not having that in the new (or 'previously loved') Caddy I'll be buying this year.
HOOD ORNAMENT...isn't there something after market you can buy and put on or does that look like too much BLING BLING?
The REAL DTSs prior to the 2006 never had a hood ornament. The ornaments only came on the floater models. Glad they didn't junk up this combined (all old DeVille models merged into one) with an extra piece of chrome to clutter up the car.
I understand the problem. My dad who has owned DeVilles for years always commented on how plain my DTS versions looked. Of course he always had cloth tops, fender skirts on a couple, extra stainless band around the bottom on a couple and of course hood ornaments (which always seemed to be broken or missing about half the time) and other clutter.
It is also a regional thing, me thinks.
I used to live in Los Angeles and had a very chromy Eldorado and DeVille. Such cars were common in LA in the 80s and 90s.
I moved to Portland Oregon and people are ashame to show chrome on their cars or drive anything bigger than a Ford or toyota. I DID see a real estate lady in a chromy Mercedes putting up her signs on Sunday.
So, LA, lots of chrome and bling and other places---less so.
