Thank goodness GM is using this interior for the US version in 08. Not sure about the steering wheel though. :hmm:

Looks good. I like the sweeping center console meeting the dash. I do however like our door pulls better because we have wood there.

Overall, a good look.

Steering wheel looks to have the BUICK logo .

I agree...the wood on the door pulls will be missed!

Great improvement? Where? I really don't agree. Other than the sweeping center console and the console lid, I don't see all that much change at all to my 07. As I mentioned earlier they took the wood out of the door pull and that's a negative. I don't see all that much of a difference to make it "great".

It looks good, but I don't think it looks that much better. They kept the same basic interior layout for most things. How about the glove box? Is it functional now? That would be an improvement. I don't like chrome or bright finishes anywhere on the dash or console so it can reflect sunlight in my eyes. I find myself trying to cover the shifter quadrant to keep the sun from reflecting in my eyes now. I know other brands are doing it, but chrome trim rings around the instruments are just there for glitz, look cheap, and do not improve the dash. The arm rest looks nice. Where are the cup holders?

Some of those pics are "future tech" that may be incorporated at some point. These have been all over the web, Endgadget, Gizmodo, etc. I think it looks basically the same as it does now.

Just a thought: the wood door-pull trim wasn't standard in the first place - it has been part of an option package, and it may be available that way on the '08 as well.

The current STS interior looks very cheap, kia cheap. The pics in the post above look great. One could only hope GM will make the changes. And how about the keyless drive system and bluetooth from the STS on all 08 cadillacs? Is that really such a hard thing to do. Not like asking you to reinvent the wheel. Just use what is already in the parts bin!

Yes!!!!!! BLUETOOTH EVERYTHING!!!!

P.S. no word on whether the STS is getting a stretch for the back seat?

The wheel sucks and it would have been nice if they updated the seats.
