I've lusted after one of these cars for years! Just recently found myself in a place where my Trans Am is not good for a family car, hence the V!

I found a "nice" 2005 Stealth Gray on ebay for an "ok" price. Put down a deposit and had it checked at a local Caddy dealer. Despite the salesman saying it was in excellent shape with 42k miles, the dealer said it needed Motor Mounts, Oil pan gasket, and a diff because it whined.

Maybe the dealer was fishing for business. I dont know. I decided not to get that car. And now I'm fighting to get my "fully refundable" $500 deposit back.

Anyway, I found a somewhat local V for sale. Its black. I hate black...until I saw this car. Its a 2005 and has a Magnaflow catback, UUC short shifter, UUC slotted rotors, Hawks pads, a W4M tune, and some other goodies. Its had the Diff, Nav, and a couple other things replaced.


Cant wait! I finally get a V after all these years!

It's probably not the oil pan gasket...it's probably the rear main cover. There is a TSB for it and mine is leaking too. Over the life of my OCI I didn't need to add any oil, but the bottom of the oil pan is always covered when I'm under there.

Good luck with the V!

So I just got the title today and put it on the road!

WOW what a car! It handles soooo nice. The magnaflow x pipe and catback give it the perfect sound, but its still very quiet when cruising! I'm glad it already had the UUC short shifter as I hear they're expensive. It feels excellent though!

I've already ordered new trunk shocks, new V emblems, and a stock spoiler to get painted and installed. I have a USA-Spec ipod cable getting installed tomorrow. Other than that im going to TRY to not mod the car too much. Its a daily driver!

LOVE it!! Got some custom plates. "LS6 CTS" :)
