I've been lurking around and thinking of getting into my 4th V (I know, its sickening). Trying to keep up with @x96535 I suppose. Naturally, I want to ensure I don't miss out on a big change so I've done some dumpster diving to try and find all the changes. Please feel free to note any I've missed or incorrectly listed and I will modify. Figured it would be good for those in the future.

It can limit certain vehicle features, and it prevents certain safety systems from being turned off. An in-vehicle report gives you information on your teen’s driving habits and helps you to continue to coach your new driver

So, to me, 2018 would be the year for me to get a VBM with "best" (a relative term) CUE.

Worth noting, the After Midnight wheels on the 2016 Crystal White Frost Editions are more of a gunmetal gray as opposed to the current dark (almost black) gray wheels. I purchased a set from a CWRE owner who changed out his wheels, At that time I didn't know there was a difference and when my wife caught one of the wheels I wanted to just replace it so it would match the others. After 4 months and finding out that Cadillac's customer service is no better than using wax paper to wipe yourself, I got hold of Patrick Nalley one of Cadillac's marketing executives - it turns out that the first run of After Midnight wheels that were first offered on the CWFE cars are actually the wrong color. But since the car was in production and would delay sales they used these "wrong" colored After Midnight wheels specifically on the CWFE cars and used the "correct" colored After Midnight wheels on all successive cars.

So, If you damage one of these wheels you can only get it refinished, if you use the same part number you will get a current dark After Midnight wheel. According to GM, the gunmetal colored After Midnight wheels are unicorns and don't exist.

Tuning costs go up due to PCM changes over the Gen3 years.
