    It seems most people don't want a classic looking car with comfort and character. So maybe Cadillac has pitched things right with their new look. To me though, it still has a long way to go if its trying to compete with BMW, etc. Trouble is, I don't want to compete with BMW in a Caddy, I want comfort and character.
    Cadillac wants to appeal to a younger demographic, and probably just wants us old farts to die off (even though its the old farts that have the money). But more youngsters seem to be happy getting into debt for a depreciating product, so maybe Cadillac has done its homework after all. Its a sad, sad story!
    I have removed the chrome tape, so what do I do next to make the car recognizable in a parking lot?
    Get some of those "stick-on bullet holes".

    I was going into parking lot with a friend who had not seen my car. She could discern between the XTS and the Lincoln MKS cars in the lot.

    "Bling" or customizing is always gonna be a personal chose. I've had my xts since March of last year and to date (over $4100.00) in customizing to include window tint. But I have always customized my cars....20140510_1105412.jpg.....just have do alot of looking and searching.

    Now I might not shop where you guys do, but I have no trouble at all spotting my XTS in any parking lot. And as far as Ford products go the Lincoln falls far short on the exterior details (imo).
    But all this said I do miss the blue fur and fuzzy dice dash look, maybe I'll add the surfer foot gas pedal though.

    Yes, I can recognize our car, but my non-driving wife has several times approached another (silver) car. And some of her friends have asked (even after entering) 'so what car is this?'
    Once upon a time that would not have happened! Maybe I need a chrome "DeVille" badge for the back? Or wire wheels with big Caddy wreaths in the center?
