13 XTS is a logical choice for the OP stepping down from F02. XTS is luxury, tech, edgy eye grabbing aesthetics, image, comfy, Cadillac customer service, drives excellent with magnetic suspension and low 40s starting point as shown on cars.com. Marchionne's SRT, Taurus SHO is a jog in the wrong direction coming out of F02, XTS is a logical reversion from F02. XTS front wheel drive and vehicle weight makes for a pleasant drive in the rain. XTS is superior, higher image, status over SRT & SHO @ low $40k coming from F02. YRMV
An XTS would be a logical and progressive move exiting from F02.
CEIL, I have seen it at trade shows, many times, always exciting. CEIL is as imagined and destined only to be a trade event showcase for styling cues, a runway model.
Ciel means SKY en François. The CIEL is a brilliant concept.
If the OP intends to make a significant cut to his debt to asset ratio, a 12' Passat for 36mo. @ $209/mo 1999 down would make an accountant smile.
