    What kind of wine do Lincoln owners serve to each other when they Eat Their Hearts Out?

    If you're buying, Cadillac also offers the benefit of much more rapid depreciation than BMW. A year or two from now, the Cadillac will have lost much of its equity making its purchase price of a used Cadillac a fraction of the price of a used BMW of the same age. That let's you own the car at a price you can afford much sooner than if you had to wait for the BMW to depreciate to an affordable price. Of course, if you're leasing then the BMW would be a better value because its slower depreciation means that you'd consume less equity during your lease period resulting in lower payments.

    With all due respect Mr. Carter, you should do your research before you speak. While not all Cadillacs (nor BMWs) enjoy stellar resale value, the Cadillac CTS has the best retained value of any sedan over $40,000. Here is the proof.

    Given that the ATS is getting even better reviews than the CTS, it will likely have an even better resale value.

    I understand that it will be difficult for many people to believe that Americans in general and General Motors in particular can build world class cars. But I have owned BMWs and Cadillacs and found them both to be world class. I have driven the 2013 BMW 328i and the 2013 Cadillac ATS. I preferred the ATS, so I ordered one.

    Great reply -- but snobs like Carter who look down their noses at everything American will simply ignore the facts and continue to spout their biased opinions.

    Exactly my thoughts when I read Steven's comment! Cadillac has stepped up on a great many fronts and is without question a major competitor for the BMW 3 series. To deny that is showing your bias. Just say "I like BMWs better".
