    I Took 100+ Photos of an XTS Today!

    I spotted a nice White Diamond Tricoat XTS today and I followed it around. I snapped a TON of pictures, and I'll post some of the noteworthy ones. I do apologize for the quality, as the sun was setting and the pictures were taken with my iPod touch.























    The engineer wasn't too fond of me though. I gave him a thumbs up, and he glared at me with a dirty look. Anyhow, the car is STUNNING in person on the streets and has great road presence. Those LED DRL's are killer! Great job Cadillac! On a side note, the car is still wearing manufacturer plates and the driver had a laptop in the car. When he made a right turn, the car absolutely ZOOMED! I know that the badges said "3.6", but I'm pretty sure it was the 3.0TT version that was being tested. I caught up to him, but barely. There also was a faint turbo whistle as well.

    It still looks hideous to me.
    A short stumpy nose, and a tall and narrow body.
    But i guess it doesn't need much of a hood because of the mini engine underneath.
    The back still looks like a prius gone bad.
    Without a trunk it should look like a 4 door coupe, but now it just looks stupid.
    They should have hired some of the Audi A7 design team to make it look good.
    I hope for the few buyers out there, the xts won't have the sea of cheap hard plastic
    just like the cts has.

    Is it possible to be arrested for stalking a car?? Great set of photos. But doesn't help much in the like/dislike category. The photos very much emphasize that this is a Cadillac version of the LaCrosse. Now if it were the Cadillac version of the Lucerne, that would be something different. I think of the LaCrosse, regardless of its dimensions, as a mid-range Buick, and I do like the looks of the LaCrosse. But for Cadillac to imitate the proportions of a mid-range Buick for it's 2012 top of the line is not a selling point for me, electronic gadgets notwithstanding.

    Well, regarding arresting, I'm pretty sure I pulled a few moves a cop would've ran me down for just to catch up to the car...

    Thanks for posting! The car is definitely a pre-production XTS, since it has the Platinum Edition wheels and trunk badge but not the Platinum Edition front grill. The XTS looks great in White Diamond!

    Yeah, well I didn't want to say, but with having taken 105 photos, I'm surprised that you didn't run into someone. Be safe out there! BTW, where was this taken?

    I thought I recognized those roads. I live in Sterling Heights. I'll have to keep my eyes open. Still doesn't impress me enough to get rid of my paid off, low milels 07 STS that still gets complimiments to this day. Looks too much like a combination of VW, Hundai and Prius. Maybe when I see one in person I'll change my mind.
