Wow, Marc, your new ride is stunning! That Red Passion about pops my eyeballs out. No wonder your neighbor wanted to check it out! Between the color and the polished rims, it has some serious bling :bling:

I really do feel your pain too... My first order was built on 3/10 and I still don't know where it is at. That is why I told my salesman I would take the Red Passion Platinum when it came in. I sensed he had someone waiting for it to come in but I told him I have been waiting since February so I wanted first dibs on it. I wasn't sure if I would like it but after I saw it I really fell for the Red Passion color. As far as I know it is the only Platinum in my area so far.

I can only tell you to hang in there and hope it will come in soon. All I can say it will be well worth it when you finally get to take it home with you.

Marc,
I'll add mine to this thread in a few days. I feel slightly guilty about Roy and Playboy not having theirs yet and I don't want to drop my pics into a second thread on the same day else I look like I'm rubbing their noses in it. :\

I probably could have waited also... but I had thought I really needed to post some of my exterior photos since I already had my XT5 for a few days now.

Love that color !!! Congratulations :)
I cannot disagree with you at all! :) BTW: I cannot seem to stop admiring the deep richness of that red metallic paint glistening in the bright sunlight! :D

I like that color a lot. It is a little darker than I thought it would be. What wheels did you get?
It might appear a little bit darker in the first photo because of all the shade from my wooded lot ... it was also shot later in the afternoon. However, it does appear a bit brighter or lighter in the direct mid-day sun light.

*Below is the same time frame but shot on the other side in more direct sun light and less shade reflections.




Those wheels are standard on the Platinum package. I like Andrew's wheels too ... I like the polished wheel look, one reason it blends in better with the satin chrome on the XT5 and it doesn't show water marks from the car wash as much as the Chrome wheels do. Thus less wiping them off, much less... unlike what is required with chrome rims.

Looks like Candy Apple Red in this photo....
Good luck with your ride...
P.S. I would loose the Dealer Emblem / name, it takes away from the appearance. Just my 2 Cents...

I was surprised to see that , didn't think dealers did that anymore. Agree 100%. No rolling billboards for free advertising !!

Re: Post Your New Cadillac XT5 Photos Here!

My dealer does only license plate frames now and since I have a personal one for the back already they only added the front. I'm fine with that since their pricing flexibility is aided by the volume of cars they move. Its free advertising for them but it also probably saves me a few bucks when I'm getting into my '20 Caddy!

Something I've never noticed before - the Nike 'Swoosh' above the taillights from a side view. :gasp:

My dealer put an Emblem on my XT5 also. A small American flag on the lower part of the drivers side windshield.
