Was all set to order an opulence blue '14, but the delayed production has me looking at a diamond white '13. Problem is car is clear across the country. Haven't yet decide if I like the DW as I usually like white cars, but not sure if it has too much "pearl".

Can you guys post some pics of DW Vagons? Thx

Go find a real Cadillac in this color and see it in person. Any recent Caddy will do. Don't rely on photos; photos lie. To my eyes (on different computer monitors) it always looks more white in photos and more beige in person.

Don't get me wrong, the pearl effect is striking, but I think it comes at the expense of the whiteness of the paint. Park it next to a white car and there is no distance from which the Cadillac will look white.

OTOH, there's a contingent of Corvette guys who regularly wish for Cadillac's color on a Corvette.

I cannot stress this enough: do not rely on photos.

I saw a white V coupe today. Nice but not really remarkable. You'd need to jazz it a bit with different color brake calipers. The opulent blue will be far more striking. White is more under the radar. Black wheels at least?

I disagree that White Diamond looks "beige" in any way. It's not bright white, it's pearl white. Nobody would ever mistake it for anything other than white. However, I strongly recommend that if you go with a diamond white vagon, use black accents like the wheels, and plastidip the grilles. It looks much more spectacular with black accents like that compared to the default chrome grilles and silver wheels.

I've been debating over what color to get, and in my searching have looked at many different combinations. There is a diamond white 2013 that I found that is loaded with all the options you can get, including red calipers and satin black wheels, but I'm trying to determine if that color is really right on one of these cars. White diamond just seems more like a color for a DTS or Escalade, but with black wheels and red brakes it looks kind of interesting - and I saw a DB9 today with the exact same color combo which looked good. Silver or black diamond were always my top 2 V color picks, with silver really showing the body lines the best, and white or red were my least fav. Only considering the white one because it's a good deal and has high options. Thoughts?

I recently purchased a 2013 black diamond fully loaded. When the sun hits the paint, the car pops. Love the white, too.

Go for it. Sounds like an interesting color combo and white can be a great sports car color if done tastefully.

I have an OBM Vagon but White Diamond definitely would have been my 2nd choice. I've always liked the color. On a V though it makes the car a lot more understated which is great if you like the sleeper quality of the Vagon. If not, fortunately Cadillac provides plenty of options to modify the looks. If I had gone white, it likely would have been with polished wheels and yellow calipers. A little sleeper, a little WTF.

Thx guys...I was liking the white, but car is no longer available. Just put in an order for a OBM '14, but that doesn't mean much yet as th dealer is unable to actually place the order at this time
