    My Luxury Edition has it. You can set it for both mirrors or left only or right only.

    Another convenient place to check for features is the online owner's manual or CUE manual:
    (http://www.cadillac.com/owners/auto-owners-manuals.html)

    This was found under VEHICLE PERSONALIZATION in the XTS owner's manual, page 5-48:

    Reverse Tilt Mirror

    When on, both the driver and
    passenger outside mirrors will tilt
    downward when the vehicle is
    shifted to R (Reverse) to improve
    visibility of the ground near the rear
    wheels. They will return to their
    previous driving position when the
    vehicle is shifted out of R (Reverse)
    or the ignition is turned to OFF.

    Press Reverse Tilt Mirror. Press to
    select Off, On, On - Driver and
    Passenger, On - Driver or
    On - Passenger. Press <- to go back
    to the last menu.

    This is fantastic ! thank you so much for your trouble - didn't know about these on-line manuals - we haven't bought the car (yet) still deciding - but have driven it - just wonderful drive/handling/ it felt like the '10 CTS that we had for a short time (try one month!) ...couldn't cope with the hard seats ...
    again, many thanks !!!!!

    In addition to the tilting mirrors you now have the backup camera to make parking easier. Before the XTS started production there were several individuals very critical of the placement of the backup light. Now that I own the car, I see why they placed the backup lights low and in the middle. It throws bright light for the camera.
