A BMW 750i that was stolen from BMW USA at the Detroit Auto Show was recovered by police after being stolen outside a Detroit hotel. The BMW was being used to transport executives around Detroit during the North American International Auto Show.
Thieves took the car as it was being loaded onto a transport truck but an inattentive valet left the car idling unattended, allowing the robbers to take off with the car.

Cadillac‘s current flagships, the DTS and STS sedans are overpriced and underwhelming in today’s marketplace. The proposed XTS concept is a sharp looking vehicle but is apparently not premium enough to compete with the big dogs, like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 750i and Audi A8.
Soon-to-be-departed GM CEO Ed Whitacre apparently ordered Cadillac to get to work on a flagship capable of returning the brand to its former standing as “Standard Of The World”. But with the XTS slated to arrive in 2014 or later, we could be waiting a long time for a big Caddy.
