One's license plate is far from private; it is, oddly enough, readily visible to everyone when your car is out of the garage.

Do you cover your plate when you take the car out? :)

I am one of the 1%. I despise cup holders, find them an ugly waste of cabin real estate, and am delighted there is at least a cover.

Nothing which cannot just as easily be done after seeing the car on the road.

It is an odd expression of over-blown paranoia.

Indeed.

And some prefer styling which makes a statement over BMW's conservative staid looks.

Cadillac has additionally enjoyed much higher reliability than BMW in the recent past as well.

It is not located in an obvious place. Fortunately, once you get used to the location, it becomes very easy to find the switch.

Loaners are at the dealer's option. Whether there are any loaners, and to whom they are given, is entirely up to the dealer.

If you are alone in the car, who cares what the passenger side is set at? You are not sitting over there.

Just let the car do its thing and forget about it.

Staggered on these cars is for bragging rights only.

While narrower is definitely better for snow, it will not make any appreciable difference in your scenario of plowed streets.

Why the obsession with what others think?

It is your car. We expect you like it.

Others do not and are not in the least impressed. Do you like your car less when others do not?
