Diamond White is back - excellent news!

It would appear that the only changes are paint and interior colors, nothing new in the way of mechanical, electronics, or convenience features...

Is this the "don't mess with success" approach?

Sure would be nice if the DTS had an improved dashboard clock. It's almost unreadable after dark. Digital would be fine. Also, wish the gas cap was locked with either interior opening or by key. Seems a car in this price/catagory both items (above) would be standard.
What's with the new Ebony interior with the Titanium upper?

Yes, an unusable clock and the only nav system in the world that has no digital clock.

Makes you wonder what kind of human factors testing they do on a Caddy. Guess they think these are only driven by little ole old blue hairs on Sunday morning.

For the record, I don't have blue hair (or any hair for that matter), and I think the analog clock is very elegant, much more so than digital would be. No problems reading it at night, either. Don't have the nav system, so can't comment.

My 07 Lade clock also completely illegible - except at night. Classy, but useless during the day to me.

This is a the DTS forum. I agree with 77CDV. I turned off the digital clock.:patriot:

Renting a 2007 DTS with no Nav while my 2006 is in the body shop. It is a spartan car with no features but I do like the visible digital clock on the radio.

I think the Cadillac human factors guy is Micket the Mope.

Out of curiosity have things like the blend door problems, heated seats and a myriad of other problems that have existed on my 02 DHS been fixed on the newer models? I have always owned Caddys but the frustration with repairs on my current one has me at least thinking Japanese or even Buick.

Browsing the DTS portion of the Cadillac website today, I see that something called Bose Centerpoint surroundsound now comes on Luxury III and Performance sedans.

What exactly is that? Does one need to order the DVD navigation system in order to actually use this feature?

On a related note, many vehicles will allow you to play back a DVD movie while in Park. I understand that not displaying the video while driving is a safety concern; but when put in Drive, will the system continue to play back the movie's audio using the surroundsound?

New exterior colors now
Double Espresso
Blue Diamond
Black Ice

Just got the new color book in.
I saw a "Double Espresso" with a Cashmere (?) Cloth Top added by my dealership--it looked gorgeous. How does the "Blue Diamond" compare to the '05 and '06 Blue Ice? And is the Black Ice basically a Metallic Black Raven? Also, has anyone seen the Linen Leather Interior? (I picture it to be like the 1999-2001 Oatmeal Shade of Leather?) It is great that Cadillac designers are coming up with new colors--Cadillac was always known for their elegant and uniquely available colors--an important aspect of achieving the cachet the brand has earned!
