I found this on ebay, thinking I could rewire it to work on my 07 SRX. The reason I grabbed it is b/c I have never seen this steering wheel come with the extra wood grain on the bottom half of the wheel. Was this ever offered on the STS for model years 05-07? It is also a heated wheel. It was supposed to be NEW condition according to the ebay listing, but the plastic buttons and trim are scratched up a bit, so I am probably gonna send it back for a refund. Just thought it was really unique that it had all the extra wood.

Interesting....my 05 does not have the wood on the bottom parts like that.

Neither does my 07. In fact, NONE of the STS's I've seen (2005-2009) have that extra wood part on the wheel.
Interesting . . .
Also, if that's a heated wheel, not much of the wheel is heated. The wood part does NOT heat up, just the leather heats up. So, you'll have a heck of a time positioning your hands so they stay warm with that small amount of leather :)

It has this part number on it (25755664):

"Collision Catalog - 2005 - Cadillac - Sts
Steering wheel, Steering wheel and trim, Steering wheel, Sts w/leather w/heated wheel, Black - 2005-07 - 2005-07"

But that part only has the wood on top. Maybe its a test wheel and they decided to go without the wood on the bottom or it was used in another country?? Anyways, its kinda cool, just needs a few new plastic buttons and a new plastic bezel to look new.

I think that the steering wheel in my parents 2004 SRX AWD Lux V8 model had the wood in all three places and it is NOT a heated wheel.
There are no controls on the wheel for heat.
