Due to rusting suspension parts, it was time to replace the Bonneville. It was a sad day as I watched it drive away. :sad: As a replacement, I found a 2014 Cadillac XTS VSport Premium AWD at a great price. In some ways, I still like the Bonneville better.

A few quick pictures:

Very nice! I understand how you feel about the Bonneville. There are definitely some things about it that I like much more than my STS and DTS.

Thanks, guys. Two things that stand out (other than the CUE system) are the headlights, and the seats.

Nice ride! It's kind of like the spiritual successor to the Bonne in a way.

Definitely feel all of you guys on some features of the Bonne that even brand new cars don't seem to get.

Thanks again, all. Not long ago, I wouldn't have considered a Cadillac. I didn't want one of the "cookie cutter" cars, that except for the headlights, and tail lights, all look the same. I wanted something with distinctive styling. Then, my only demands were HUD, and AWD. The dual turbo was a bonus.

Apparently at least some. I haven't checked further, but while doing some searches, I found info on a shop near Detroit that did some tuning on them. I don't know the details as to what they actually do.
