    Default Well....................It's Caddie!

    I'm sure you guys get tired of my new car threads on this and that. Since I moved back to the USA, I had to rid of the MB S550 and get a car. I pulled the trigger on a nice XTS Luxury, 2013 used with 4K miles. Price was outstanding. New wheels are a Lexani R-Five 22" Concave with Machine/Black face chrome lip. I should have these delivered in a week or so. These will be staggered as I've done with the other cars, 22x9 in front/22x10 in rear. Got it as my early bday present. The only plans I have for it is 20% window tint. I won't mess with the sound system in this one. I think the wheels are going to look awesome on this one.

    Yes b-day present to myself bro. Thanks and hoping the wheels add to the handling since they are a tad wider without sacrificing the ride quality.

    Wait until the XTS V-sport hits the road. Though it's fwd, it should be nice.

    I like the German engineering, but after owning the S, not really caught my eye from MB. I drove the XJ from Jag, but it didn't really stand out to me like the XTS does.

    I'm not a big fan of the Cadillac styling, a little too 'bling' for me.

    Congrats on the new toy though, new cars are always fun.

    I never tire of new toy threads (though I've wondered the same when I post my new toy posts), and you have impeccable taste, so keep them coming good sir Is that the 300 some HP V6, or is there more than meets the eye there?

    And agreed with Zingo, some of the newer Caddies are real eye catchers, yours included. Love the wheel choice; you'll have to put some pictures up when it's all said and done.

    Yep, that's a Caddy! Silver is not my favorite color but that is just personal taste. Good luck with it! These are great cars!

    BTW Happy Birthday!
