Maybe that Lutz' swoopy look from the Sixteen will grow on me, but I have started to like the new edgey look instead. I wish they would pick one design theme and stick to it a minute or two.
I want a 500 hp XV-12 as an option in the STS as well, not just in some $75K unobtainable flag-car.

I'm really not crazy about the Art&Science design theme, and I'm happy that it's getting toned down. It would be nice if Cadillac picked a design and stayed with it, but I think that is also what one of their old problems has been. Previous Cadillacs have only had evolutionary not revolutionary changes.
As for modifying pictures, there's only so much I can do. I'm not an actual autodesigner.

I think you do pretty damn fine work. I do like the current design theme. However, that doesnt mean there isnt room for different looks on different models.

I like the idea very much.....But I agree with Bruce as well.....The edgey look has grown on me a lot in recent months. The CTS, While still being too small I.M.O. is a good looking car particularly the Meaner looking CTS-V models I've seen. I really do like the 12/16 look too, Cadillac has a lot of interesting ideas right now and I hope that they can continue the trend towards better quality that they've been SLOWLY pursuing over the last few years.

Imagine that was the next STS?! Post that picture up in our image section. That would be good for the Concepts and Future Vehicles section..

i thought the sixteen was going to have shaved door handles oem

The picture above is of a Twelve, not a Sixteen.
I don't think it requires shaved door handles. It's something extra to go wrong, and probably doesn't work that well in cold climates. Sometimes you need to get a grip (literally).

I see that more as a V-8, not V-12 model. I like it, but I still think this and the Sixteen it is based on could be sharper.
