Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012 Discussion, just bought a 05 sts in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; ...
just bought a 05 sts I have lot of different question and i need some advice with what to do with it. so first question is should i get the blue hid lights and the yellow fog lights. and my sts is white and i am wondering should i vinyl the top part flat black and then get rims. i want to get some 19inch rims but i looked at the LEXANI® - R-SEVEN Machined Black rims. Re: just bought a 05 sts Welcome!
What trim level/options do you have? I see a previous owner installed a mesh grille; nice!
The mods you propose aren't to my preference, but opinions vary. Tires can affect the ride & handling a lot and that's more important to me. Bur it's your STS. It should look the way you want. Re: just bought a 05 sts its the 3.6 v6 i have the regular Bose system in it and i dont have the navi in it so i need some ideas on what to do Re: just bought a 05 sts If you wanted to get the navi you can find some used ones on ebay and installing it is really easy its simple plug and play. Plus the navi looks nicer than that small radio screen Re: just bought a 05 sts does it come with aux plug in because i want that Only factory equipped have RCA aux input. The nav will allow for it if you get the wiring. Re: just bought a 05 sts To each his own, but really? Put a vinyl roof on it?!
Oh, wait...you mean put a 'wrap' on the top. Okay, got it. Scared me for a sec, there... :-) Re: just bought a 05 sts hahahahha yea thats what i meant sry lol wrap it in flat black Re: just bought a 05 sts I think that is the first STS I have seen without a moonroof. Re: just bought a 05 sts yea i know i wish i had it Re: just bought a 05 sts Hello, I don't know if you have the 6 or 8 Cyl. but you better check your cam sensors and cam shaft. the cam shafts are known to get a lot of play in them, and eventually you'll need a new engine. This happened to me, and someone else on this site. Re: just bought a 05 sts I have the V6 and thanks for the heads up Re: just bought a 05 sts never knew the cams were issues in northsars or the 3.6. timing belt chain in earlier v6s had issues
and i dont have a sunroof on my sts either, i want the tvs900 by hollandia Re: just bought a 05 sts Forum members do not report a pattern of issues with the V8 cams, chains or sensors. About the only common 2005 & up N* issue is loose intake manifold bolts.
