    Here's a pic of today's Shanghai. Rickshaw you say?



    There's a billion people there. Of those, there's about 100 million with plenty of disposable income.

    DISPOSABLE INCOME you say? How much? The facts remain: average wage being $5K per year.

    GM is so retarded. Why the hell are they giving the Chinese a hell a better STS than us? 4 inches longer? Americans are by far a lot taller than Chinese people. No racism intended. And made in China? Its an American car made in China. How dumb can it get?

    Alot of the time when people in China and alot of asian countries get money they will in fact by a Cadillac. It is a status symbol. People do the same thing over here.

    They had this issue for Lowrider that ran about two years ago. It only had Cadillacs. I believe there where ten or twelve. When you read through each of the articles you would discover that over half where purchased by people in Japan.

    There is a mass quantity of rich people in China who can easily afford to buy an SLS. Doesn't matter how low the "average" wage is when there are a crapload of people making a crapload of money.

    New Cadillac is never for average joe in America either. you may not know. China is the 2nd biggest market for BMW. If Cadillac wants to growth, they have to enter the Chinese upscale market. Audi is the first car company enter the Chinese market since 1950s. Then, GM, Honda, Hyundai, BMW all follow and built their plants in China and sell to Chinese locally. They all make tons of money.

    Ok, STS - essentially a larger CTS. DTS is larger than the STS, but damn is that thing ugly! Can the DTS and sell the SLS instead everywhere! I'm sure this would help cut some costs for caddy too! And damn the SLS is much sweeter than a DTS!

    Well.................just like GM to screw over their own aint it? GM Holden in Australia gives the Aussies all rear wheel drive cars that have balls....but not to us, "The Americans". GM China gives the Chinese a car that looks a shit load better than the DTS, but not us, "The Americans".

    Instead they give is a DTS that looks like it was put out in a desperate attempt to upgrade the 2000-2005 Deville, that when hooked up correctly looks alot better than the 06 DTS.

    And they wonder why The Kaiser (Daimler-Chrysler), Hank (Ford), and every Rice Burner kicks The Generals Ass in the U.S Market!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Do you think DUBYA BUSH is secretly Running GM ?

    Hi
    I Am Wondering When They Are Going To Design A New Sedan Deville Not The Dts.

    This Body Must Go. It Is Old And Has No Style. Lexus,audi,benz And Bmw Are Cleaning Up.

    You Guys Have To Get The Guys In The 30 To 40 Year Olds Interested In Your Cars.

    I Have Owned Over 20 Cadillacs And Want To Get One Now And The Style Really Turns Me Off.

    I Drive A Lexus And Jaguar And Want To Go Back To Caddy....when Are We Getting A Super Looking Car Like In The 59,60 Etc...i Love Those And Eldo Like The 79 Etc....please Comment...jerry
