How is the CTS v sport faster by every measure? 0-60 stock is identical and my guess is with more power and torque (and better gearing) the 550 will pull away at the quarter

2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport

I don't think a CTS V Sport is going to lease out anywhere near as competitive as a 550 for the money I'll take the BMW

I will take your word on the resale value but I suspect that has more to do with the longevity of Diesel engines and not the fuel economy. If I see a 6 year old diesel with 70k on the clock that is...
