Very happy to have purchased my '05 Deville DTS today. Reading these forums really helped me in the buying/negotiating process.

The previous owner is a wealthy man. He just retired, and was chauffeur driven in it on weekdays. He and his wife drove it on weekends. Now that he's done working, he didn't need an extra car in the garage (they had 3).

All of the services were done at the dealership, there is no recommended maintenance to do until 100K.

It has 75,000 miles. I paid $8000. Just bought a used "galaxy 1000" off of ebay for the bluetooth/onStar thing. Rear windows were professionally tinted.

I am STOKED! New plates go on it tomorrow morning and then I'm cruising the hell out of it!

These are the ad pics (while the links last). I'll post my own after a good detailing:

Dumont, NJ here.

I saw on the forums that there's a Cadillac club that meets at the fireplace restaurant in Paramus. I might check out one of their Wednesday night meetings.

This caddy is a replacement for my '97 Audi A8 that some crazy lady totalled while it was parked in my driveway. I was very active in my Audi club and would like to find a group that does the same stuff, (Cruises, events, BBQs, etc...).

We are blessed with some really nice cruisin' weather here in NJ this weekend. Drove around doing errands yesterday (plate frames, gas, air, etc). Drives/ rides like a dream...

off to Bear Mountain, NY today for a fun drive up the Palisades Parkway. :thumbsup:

I've been showing off the car to anyone with a pulse. :cookoo:

Not sure. I've only run one tank through it so far... says about 18 on the info scroll thing.

I knew that the links for the pics were gonna crap out. Time to take some of my own.
