    Just got an STS but what trim?

    Just traded in my 2007 VW GTI on a 2005 sts charcoal grey v6. Don't really know what options it has on it though. How can i tell what was added onto it, like magnetic ride control and other stuff.

    Also are there any type of performance upgrades you can do to this car besides intake and exhaust, already know the ecu cant be cracked. Also what handling upgrades?

    Any common or widely liked exterior modifications?

    A tag with all the option codes is located on the bottom side of the spare tire cover in the trunk.

    Plug your VIN# in here. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...converter.html

    Go to the link I listed above and plug in your VIN#. You'll get a complete list of all the options on your car plus a lot of other information as well.

    Every option the car is equipped with is listed in plain English. I don't know what else I could tell you. Is there any particular option that you would like to know more about?

    Your car has the 1SB trim level which is a mid-level trim package you have all the standard STS features but not many of the top level options such as Bose 5.1 surround sound cd/dvd player, Navigation,heated/cooled seats,high performance brakes, premium steering gear, MRC, HUD, ACC, and doesn't look like you have the limited slip differential, or the wood trimmed and heated steering wheel. Please remember don't kill the messenger!

    It sounds like rental car trim.

    not many other than exhaust, CAI(some modifacation with V6), and lowering springs from D3, that's about it. there are a lot of threads available with detailed instructions and tips just have to be patient and search

    There are numerous reports in the forum that a CAI on an STS results in trouble codes and it's a waste. The air intake is well designed as it is.
