A :yup: What an unbelievable car..To appreciate it, you have to drive this engineered dream. I have been driving an Audi A8L for three years and the STS kicks its butt..I am thoroughly impressed with the power, handling and to my surprise the fit and finish.......I'll keep you posted on the finer details..

Don't want to shatter your dreams about the Audi A8L Sandy. Don't get me wrong, the Audi is a great car and I have enjoyed it for the last 70K miles. I have also driven the new A8L and for the money, the STS is right there in power, handling and comfort. Obviously the Audi has more room in the back seat, but you don't drive the car from there. Do yourself a favor, drive a new A8L, then drive the STS and get back to me...

Congrats. Good Luck with it. I am waiting for mine to come in suppose to be today or tomorrow. Mine is the V8 1SF w/ HUD. It is Light Platium w/ Ebony interior. Wish there was a way to confirm it will be here but dealer says there is no way its in transit. Guess i have to wait and keep my fingers crossed.

I will add my congratulations.

Also - if you happen to notice, I'm very curious what rpm your 1SE shows at steady cruise 60 / 70 / 80 mph?

And please post your overall and highway actual MPG?

Enjoy!
Thanks,
- Ray
Still gathering data . . .

Ray, I will gladly get the RPM numbers @60-70-80 for everyone. Should have some actual MPG in a week. If anyone else out there has any questions about the STS, don't hesitate to post them. I will be happy to oblige.

What kind of discount off list did your dealer offer?

Congrats! I love the honey eucalyptus wood color! I really think these new STS's will take Cadillac to the next level and strike a nerve with Lexus and their quality.

Must see pics!
