    the high res silver sts photos http://www.gminsidenews.com/gallery/...ls.php?album=5 makes it look sweet! which makes me believe one could only really like or dislike it up close (in different colors) in the dealer showroom.

    Where did the Art&Science go?

    I understand that not everyone wants it to look like a CTS, but would a four-door XLR have been too hard? Some of the early concept sketches looked like that. It will probably still do well though as other cars in it's class are bland-looking for the most part. It just seems that the STS is confused sbout it's identity(taking cues from 2 different design philosophies). It does look good on the road, but upon closer inspection it's character falls apart IMO.
    I agree with Leigh on this one, I really don't like judging a car without driving it because it's not really fair to do this, so maybey this New STS just has to grow on me a bit before i can make a final decision. The side by side pics above that Ron posted of the STS on the left and the CTS on the right give me a better overall look at the STS and to me it looks better than the CTS from the side with the longer wheel base. I would have to "Drive" both cars and maybe flip a coin on this one JMO

    Its that tail in the air that bugs me, nothing says "cheap" and "Japanese" than a car with a really high trunk line. Its just a invitation for some idiot to put a 20 ft high triple-decker spoiler on it.

    Please excuse me, I know this is my first post here and everything, but the new STS just doesn't seem to get my attention right now. It's just too similar to the CTS, and the side by side comparo certainly doesn't help matters much. My thoughts of the STS was that of a more agressive styling, low to the ground, ready to attack all comers regardless of their past history, road blaster and highway cruiser. Much like they did the XLR to compete with Lexus's cute jelly bean conv and Merc's SLK.

    I was looking more forward to similar styling cues from the Cien and the Eightteen here, not a warmed over CTS. I just have some doubts about this Caddy that shouldn't be there, after seeing the concepts they put out there for the viewing public. I think they made a bad decision on the styling cues here. Just like GM. When they finally get it right, WHAM! right in the kisser with something else unexpected.

    I think the styling of this car is entirely appropriate for the market segment the car competes in. The only car in this class that takes any real styling chances is the BMW 5-Series and it's styling is hardly highly regarded. When you the at the majority of the cars that the STS will compete with I think it compares quite favorably.

    is it me or is the 2005 sts a lowered srx? I like the look of the srx and cts and it after seeing the new sts in the dealer and test driving i still feel the same then thats my next car. i'll wait until next spring if I like it...by then the weather in MI will be getting good and the sts-v will have been unvieled giving me yet another choice.

    Rollman you just hit the nail on the head. On top of the cloned style imagine shelling out $66K for something that looks like a $40K car. I want more of a roomier and differentiated design.

    See my quotes on my other posts on styling lacking and French looking under 2005 STS. I need you to chime in and back me up here. The sponsoring dealers are trying to bash my comments in hopes to sell more cars but we need to set the record straight.

    But yet you compare to the imports - like the 745 looking like a larger 545 or the 545 looking like a larger 3 series...Of the mercedes,,,yes, they all look completely different to each other.

    Ah, yes, that's it. You caught me. I'm just raking up the sales in these forums...I'm not even a freaking salesman. Get over it. You keep saying you're entitled to your opinion, but you have to "set the record straight" with us?

    Re: 2005 sts in dark blue and light green

    I just saw the new STS. It was brought to our dealership for the grand re-opening of our newly remodeled showroom.

    The pictures do not do it justice. I hated it when I saw the pictures.

    We parked it next to a CTS to show the differences. This car is incredible. The styling is great. It is only 1.8 inches smaller than the BMW 7 series on the interior.

    The public really liked it. In fact, a few people placed orders the following day and I have another person coming in Monday to place an order.

    Re: 2005 sts in dark blue and light green

    I'm seriously considering a new STS. Blue Chip is my color too...so those pics on the opening of this thread have made the right impression on me. I actually like the back end look even more then the front.

    I picked up a brochure at my dealer a week ago and got an education in all of the bells and whistles, and some nice interior pics. Does anyone know if the tail lights on the sts are LED type?
