The car is a beast.

Review
This car is exactly what it was designed to be: a Cadillac killer. It's a rear-wheel drive highway luxo-cruiser, not a BMW M3. Those who complain about this car being unexciting obviously didn't do their homework and should stick to German sports coupes or Miatas. That said, this car's V8 has enough power to rocket from zero-60 in about 6.5 seconds, and the acceleration from 40-80 mph is even more heinous. I can't help but grin like a jackal when I pass people in this beast. And the other 99% of the time you cannot hear the engine! I cannot say enough about this car. The fit and finish is amazing. Even the smallest details are overengineered for wide margins of error and flawlessly done.
Favorite Features
Auto & power EVERYTHING. Immaculate build quality; literally drives like new at 100k. Awesome V8 gets THIRTY MPG hwy. Engine almost inaudible @ 80 mph. Excellent turning radius. Like driving a La-z-Boy. Intuitive controls. Xenons. Silky transmission. Predictable handling & vehicle stability control.
Suggested Improvements
Non-nakamichi sound system w/6-disk changer in the glove box is not well suited to most contemporary styles of popular music (replace speakers). Dynamic laser cruise control like that of later models would have been nice. Door handles are flimsy compared to a 1980's era Mercedes 300 series diesel.
