This may sound kind of stupid, but I am have trouble figuring out what I have here. I find all the options and the way they were offered by Cadillac confusing. I was told it was a luxury premium edition. All it says on the bill of sale is 2011 DTS. It has a ot of options on it,
but I can't find a good guide as to how to determine which model it actually is. I has a body color grille, sunroof, navigation, heated/cooled seats, power side folding mirrors, heated wood steering wheel, parking sensors
rear auto air, electric tilt and telescopic steering wheel, blind spot detection, and that's just what I have noticed. It may have more, but it doesn't have an owner's manual. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help. It looks like it is a premium collection with the driver awareness package added.

i think you can be definitive by requesting a build sheet from the dealership

Look at the door sill when you open the door... if it is a Platinum, it will say it on each door sill... Also, the Platinum has 18 inch wheels and the other models have 17 inch wheels...

Mine is not a Platinum. I figured that out. It has 17" chrome wheels. From what I can tell from the links provided, mine is a luxury premium with the driver's awareness package. It has the half wood steering wheel, Nav system, Bose, camera in the windshield, and the little lights in the mirrors that tells you someone is in your blind spot.

is it a camera in the windshield or rearview mirror or a backup camera on the navigation screen?

There is a camera mounted between the windshield and the rear view mirror. I found out the camera is for the lane departure warning feature.

It has the Intellibeam, too. How do the Rainsense wipers work?

How do the Rainsense wipers work?
When all else fails, read the owner's manual.

Rainsense and INTerval determined by rain density and interval ring setting - an IR windshield sensor patch.

Rainsense wiper stalks usually have 5 positions - A spring loaded MIST down push for a single wipe. OFF. INTerval, Low speed, High speed.

Depending on how you set the headlight Twilight Sentinel and the Rainsense Interval stalk will determine how and when your headlights come on or when you see a "Headlamps Suggested" message in the DIC.

Look for a sticker under the spare tire cover - the Service Parts (RPO - Regular Production Option) code list that tells you what is built into THAT car. Get, and bookmark, a list of codes and definitions by Googling something like "cadillac 2011 dts option code list" or "cadillac 2011 rpo code list".

Here's an RPO sticker as an example. The BC/CC line is the car's paint code.

I wonder if just calling up Dham would work. I have spoken to a manager there before about a car besides mine, maybe they can pull a build sheet from your VIN.
