hi caddy man,

yeep the mesh grill looks good on the 05 sts. hope to see soon some better pics of it.
as I see you drive an 00 DTS, I got the same - does your engine uses as mine for 1500-2000 miles a quart of oil?

but I must say one thing, Im here in germany and when on the autobahn I mostly drive between 160 - 21o km ( thats 100 - 130 mph).

Its a really good car but one thing about I don`t like is the speed-limiter
which allows only 210 kmh (130 mph)

I believe the STS should be able to hit 155 with the rear deck spoiler?

Hi harryctsv. Your right the DTS is a great car, im glad you like it. Yes my engine would also use oil. The engine was made to hold 8 quarts!! Thats a lot of oil. I've heard the way the Northstar was designed, it burns oil, so don't worry its not your car, my DTS was in excellent shape and it also burned about a quart between oil changes. Ive never taken the DTS to 130 mph! What a rush that must be. :)

HiCaddyman,
thanks for your answer. Before the DTS I had a 96 Concours also with the 300 hp northstar engine and this one uses allmost no oil. I mean from oil-change to oil-change I had to add not one drop.
On my XLR (7800km) thats 4850 miles no oil use to see.
Do you have the 3.2 or 3.6 liter CTS?

Hi mikethegreeat
you can believe me the new STS doesn`t need a rear spoiler to hit 158 mph.

I had opportunity to check this out!

i have the 3.2, my dts was totalled in an accident (i absoultly loved that car). I had the choice of either a luxury package 04 CTS with the 3.6, or an 03 CTS with the 3.2 and the luxury sport package, i picked the luxury sport over the one with the bigger engine.

hi caddy man,

I have the 3.2 ltr in the opel vectra GTS my wife drives. Its a good engine in a good car. the same engine as in your car!

I still got my DTS and I love this car too, mine is "dark polo green"with "oatmeal" interior, and in perfect condition.

But this one goes away when I get my 05 STS or 05 CTS V - I hope they soon come to germany.

Thanks
Harry

CADDY Man - Hi,

yes, the 3.2 engine in your CTS is a german engine. It was first in the Opel Omega, which was your Catera in the us. till 02 they had the 3.0 engine and when the new Opel vectra came out it went to 3.2 liters. German hp rating is 218.

60 special - nice name, I had a 91 Fleetwood 60 special with this wonderfull seats - it was a very nice car.

The pic from the STS with the V grill is fantastic. Ill get me this grill when I buy a STS instead of the CTS-V. Still have to wait for both cars here in germany, but I hope they come soon.

thanks you guys

Harry,

Thanks for the compliment. Being a Cadillac lover from an early age, I always thought the name was very classy.

Has anyone seen this grille at a dealership? Is it like the CTS-V?

Does anyone know if the mesh in the aftermarket grille matches the factory lower mesh? Also, does Cadillac have plans for a STS-V anytime soon? That would be the STS for me!

Yes, Cadillac plans a STS-V for 2006. Supercharged Northstar. It should be available by January of that year, if not a little sooner. So be patient. You can get the factory grille then, or better yet, the factory car!

Can the mesh grill be used with the adaptive cruise control?

I hope they do something with the exterior of the STS-V to really make it stand out from the crowd! :D

Bigger wheels and tires - a.little spoiler-work - the mesh grill - other exhaust-system and tips - that will be the exterior on the mid 05 STS v

You can pick up a 2005 STS Mesh upper grille from Automotive Speciality Distributors the grille goes for around $399.00 but you have to shave your Cadillac crest. [ 1-800-544-1780]

If it's like the CTS or Escalde grilles the factory grille emblem is just taken off the factory grille and reinstalled on the mesh grille.
