Good, someone let GM know they should make an Arctic White CTS-V.

I'm sure all the White Diamond guys love their paint jobs, but I'd prefer to see Arctic White offered.

I will second the Arctic White paint suggestion. Also, how about putting on a thicker coat? I looked at some (3) White Diamond Escalade's over the weekend and the paint was splotchy and uneven! Looked like they had used a spray can. My wife has a Genesis sedan and the paint looks like it is a quarter of an inch thick and is flawless to boot.

EXACTLY ! It's pretty sad when a 15yr old buick has a better, thicker, and more scratch resistant paint job than a new 70k cadillac

the redo on the XTS should make it even more beautiful according to Peter DeLorenzo who has seen it.
For those that missed the show.

.
you can go back to the link above and watch the show again which I recommend or listen to it on itunes. I got my question about corvette in there. I got a lot of laughs! I called in this afternoon. Peter DeLorenzo filled us in on what the new c7 will be and Ed just laughed out loud..

A lot of good discussion on what makes cadillac a cadillac with its differentiation in future design language.

Ed's personal car is a CTS V coupe! which he loves the styling on and I have to agree..What a beautiful design. Truly a show car for the street.


I recommend watching the show. It was excellent. IMO

I'm biased as I truly admire Mr. Ed Welburn as a person and as a designer.
