Congrats and welcome!! I'm still waiting for someone to describe how effective the cooled seats work. For example, is there much of a breeze or not noticeable, etc?

So tell us, NoEuroNow, any vibrations at any speed?

Inquiring minds want to know!

I did not test the STS cooled seats, but Ive used the feature in a DTS and it works quit well. It is really humid down here, so sometimes leather seats will make your back sweat, but not with the cooling seats, keeps your whole body temp down. A feature definetly worth haveing.

That's the info I was after! :) If my Dad had waited another year he could have got the 04 DTS with the cooled seats. The only thing stupid about the massaging feature is that to shut it off you have to move the seat adjustment setting and then put it back!

In the test drive and 200 miles since delivery no vibrations at multiple speeds...just smooth power delivery and really quiet inside....wish you could hear a little more V8 growl. Interesting note..almost pulled the trigger on the CTS then jumped into the STS..decision made....the V8 is the way to go..extra cabin room worked better for me and fit and finish is excellent.

I'm particularly interested in what you are doing to the grille. That will look cool in black. I ordered a V style grille with my 1SG. It's supposed to be here this week.

Also, found an incredible web site that has great wheels for the STS and other Caddy models so check it out. I ordered the FZ4 wheels.

To: DVos, Explain how to get a V mesh for a 05 STS, it's what I am looking for.

Robert, just ask your dealer. A good one has a lot of aftermarket guys to work with. For example, there are standard CTS's, SRX's and Escalades at my dealer in New Jersey with V grilles on them.

It's very easy to do.
