    Red is def not the color for this car. This car looks great in black or grey.

    I believe the grill in the embedded picture is of the non-Platinum grill on either the Luxury or Premium trim levels. If you look lower in the bumper you can see a 'splitter' chrome feature that is not found on the Standard trim level. It is on the Luxury and Premium as well as the Platinum.

    Don't think it's the color, must be the angle, but these shots make the car look painfully narrow. That front 3/4 shot had me thinking I was looking at an ATS. Definitely need to see one in person.....

    No word on Platinum trim production. Have heard that standard trim are to be the first produced. I keep tracking my order.

    Thanks for the photos. I guess anyone who has ordered one already must be losing sleep in anticipation. Patience is a virtue, as they say.
    I'll make a statement here that might p. o. a few, but I opened the photo on my computer, my wife walked by and said "that looks like my Cruze"!!
    Obviously doesn't look exactly like my wife's Chevy, maybe just the same crystal red, but I guess Cadillac could have made the XTS even more distinctive. I don't think Cadillac had that problem in 1965 or even 1995. Don't shoot me, but comments are welcome.

    Your wife has good taste. The Cruze is a nice looking car, also she chose you.

    Thanks ddawson. That's the nicest thing I've heard said to me today.
    Actually, the point made was that from certain angles, (rear quarter, back to front) you can tell they're from the same family. And the Cruze, in crystal red and RS package, is pretty attractive.

    You're welcome. If the BMW badge was on the Cruze, everyone would rave about it.
