My name is Jay Slater and live in N Georgia.I am the proud owner of a STS V .
(8 months and 6100 miles)Ihave owned BMW's for years.I like it much better than my 2001 M5 or my 2002 M3.The closest thing to my V was a lovely 2000 540 with sport pkg and Dinan mods including super charger.The V reminds me of my teen years ( 1950's) when Caddies were the best looking,best built ,fastest sedans and coupes around.No ,it is not as fast as an M5 or E55 Amg, but it is a much better daily driver.Thanks to GM for a great car

PS Because I am so happy with the V i bought a Trailblazer SS in Dec.
It is a blast to drive this Vet truck

Hi Jay, what a good kind of taste in cars.

I`m a german and in my garage is a XLR and a brand new STS - love both.

My STS V is silver(so is the Trailblazer) We still have a very nice 740I with the sprt pkg in Imola red and a lovely 630 CSI (1978) in silver with red leather and factory racing pkg( I belive rhis was the forerunner to the M cars0
The Bangle Bmw's leave me cold and the Idrive and SMG trannies belong in another world

Congrats on the car, welcome to the family.

I must regret to inform you though, that the dealer sold you a much slower color. It is widely known Black Raven is the fastest color.

But enjoy it anyway :duck:

Black is awesome but I have about half a mile of gravel road before I hit pavement
