Hi,
I have an 05 STS V8 AWD. I love it. I would like to know if the hood from an 05 STS-V would be a perfect fit for my STS? It looks like a match, however, I would like to know before I spend the money for the sportier hood. I also would like to add a "mesh" grill as well. I have the Adaptive Radar Cruise controll. I think that the grill is different for the ACC. Will the correct grill and the V-Series hood should go togeather with no problem?

Thanks

Hello,
The hood would certainly fit. We just recently finished a customers car that included a V-Series hood upgrade. Since you have ACC you will not be able to use a full mesh grill, furthermore the STS V-Series grill will not fit in the stock STS fron bumper. We offer a mesh grill that is compliant with ACC. Please let us know if there are any questions.

Hello,
List price on the hood is $1845, but you might be able to find it cheaper locally. As for the grille, that is $350 plus shipping. Please let us know if you have any questions.

V hoods are fiberglass. You really shouldn't buy one though. Some V owner might need it if his car gets damaged. Think of the poor V owner!

If it comes to that, I will have one made in CF. I had my rare SHO+ hood and spoiler duplicated in CF. Lighter and stronger than stock and still can be painted over if desired.

The real reason to avoid a V hood is that it is heavier and higher. More weight high on the car and more drag. Sporty?
