Automobile(s): 2005 White Diamond STS N* 1SF RWD ACC/HUD
Re: 2006 sts4
I wish I could find a deal like that...$12,700 was a killer deal. The one I found is a 2005 1SF N* ACC/HUD with RWD and 84K miles for $14,000. I did find a STS4 N* 1SG ACC/HUD with 116K miles but they won'y go lower than $14,800, so I passed on it.
So a salesman told me wrong... like that never happens. I would agree your car has a very rare combination of features. Enjoy! The forum holds old posts describing the limited availability of ACC and 1SG's in the early years.
I agree with you on the STS. Compared to the other GM offerings at the time, it is a jewel. In many ways, Cadillac squandered an opportunity. They continue to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory at almost every opportunity

I've only had this car for a few months (had a '04 CTS 3.6 that I totaled before and a '92 STS a few cars before that) and I am ecstatic about my purchase. I just cannot understand GM/Cadillac's total lack of any marketing effort on this car. A lot of the automotive commercials are bragging about their new tech stuff and a lot of them are things I have on my '06, you know, like they just invented this tech (like ACC and blue tooth)! The CTS is a great car and GM/Cadillac have really gone out of their way to make sure everybody (and their momma's) know about it... but the STS is far superior in my opinion. Now they've axed the N* and a lot of other goodies that are on my ride for the 2011 final year. I think the XTS is going to be like the 1985 Sedan DeVille except for the ease of connecting to Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, and texting... of course none of it will work if you have it in drive!!!!
Sorry about the rant :[ I usually try to keep that kind of crap to myself... but I just couldn't stop!
According to compnine.com my vehicle is a "one-off". Another one like it was not built from '05 - '07.
I have been watching the market because my wife doesn't want to drive her E350 any more so I'm kindda on the prowl for a 2wd 1SG and finding one is tough. A lot of V6's out there but, as a former gear head, it must be a N*, if not a V.
You definitely have to watch what ur getting. These babies can be pricey to fix... and I ain't "got-it" like that!!!
