There must be some good reason for that. But since Cadillac is a premium brand I would indeed expect some more flexibility in the interior packages. I don't like the wood either and will go ebony. And it would be nicer if Cadillac would offer more colors for the leather too. How about that reddisch brown you see in many other premium brands?It is really puzzling why Cadillac does not put paddle shifters on the AWD model. It even on the CTS-V! I don't like the deep dark brown wood trim either. They have not other options if you purchase the Premium package. The deep dark brown wood is so dated and all. They have a very nice silver carbon simulated looked but that is not available to those who select the Premium package. Also, a lot of their interior would benefit from a grey color wood trim as well as a nice birch/maple wood trim option to light it up to being more upscale like the Bentleys and Rolls look!
