    Ok people put the pipes down!!! Instead of making these assumptions that are incorrect why don't you look at the measurement of the STS wheel base and that of the Benz. Also look at the interior dimensions and tell me which one is bigger. If some had a clue they would realize that the STS is a bigger car than any other model in its class. It competes with the 5 series and E class and it is closer in size to their bigger models. I will bet those that are commenting on the STS being this or that have not even seen it in person.

    Re: Price High Styling Laacking 2005 STS/ E 500

    Ok so the Benz starts at $49000 and the STS starts at 41,000! And some of you think the STS is over priced. That is for the V6 benz at that. The V8 Cadillac starts at $48000 and that is cheaper than a base Benz with a V6. Like I said put the pipes down. Now look at these number and tell me how is it the STS is so small inside when it is bigger than the Benz.

    No...it's an 1800 option, but also includes the XM satellite radio and Bose upgrades. Try buying something similiar after market at your local electronics supermarket, and you'll be close to the same price..and it won't be nearly as well integrated into the car.

    Re: Price High Styling Laacking 2005 STS/ E 500

    ya know whats gonna be frickin awsome about the STS is the sound system! straight from the caddy site:

    The STS is the first vehicle to offer the Bose Studio Surround System


    • Delivers true discrete 5.1 surround sound, a sound experience previously reserved only for cinemas and home theaters
    • 15 advanced Bose speakers, the most of any prestige luxury sedan
    • Plays the widest variety of disc formats available on the market today
    • Delivers a 360° sound experience for each passenger
    • Integrated with infotainment system to deliver exceptional audio from DVDs. When the vehicle is in park, passengers can also enjoy DVD video on an 8-inch diagonal display, one of the largest high-resolution displays available


    360 degree surround sound for EVERY passenger?! how do they do it! i wanna hear!

    Bzzzt!

    Youre referring to the slow-selling M45 (but still outsold the Lexus GS430), which is an old design that came out in Japan as a Nissan in the late 90s. It was imported to the US as a stopgap until the new M45 comes out, which has MB/Jaguar lights and a G35 rear end. Every other Infiniti looks too round to look like a Cadillac (Q45, I35, FX, G35)
