    Forget it. I'll just lurk for now on and not ask dumb questions. Well until I buy a cadillac
    Keep in mind, this is a free, public forum. Nobody here gets paid to post/help, they do it out of generosity. Nobody owes you a thing. If everyone posts pics, great. If nobody does, oh well. The attitude won't get you any more replies.

    Re: What does your interior look like?

    I'm familiar with forums and what they're about. I'm 37yrs old that has been on forums for almost 7yrs. U r correct moistcabbage, on what u said, but 2 members posted, "google search". They couldve contributed in this thread. I did google before I started this thread. Or else I would've bumped and old thread, if it exsisted.

    Edit: if u search "INTERIOR" in this forum section 05+ STS. U will notice that there isn't a thread titled "INTERIOR"

    When members say search noob.most of the time, they don't research they're own advice. It would've been easier for everyone if a link was added to their quote.

    Remember, u were a noob at one point or another

    There is no wood in any of those nice looking trim pieces on the dash, IP, console, or door spears. Older models might have had wood veneer but '04 and up is plastic. I launched the parts for the GMX-272 (DTS), a sister plant molded the parts for the GMX-295 (STS) and the plastic applique's came from our thermoforming plant. They are thin ABS substrate wood print with either a PVC or acrylic clear coat.

    The last real wood veneers that we used were for the Lincoln P/U and those parts were packaged together with corresponding Lot/serial #'s.

    I launched the GMX-222 (Buick Lucerne) at the same time.
    We received the base film from Avery films and then thermoformed it on our presses. I've seen hundreds of thousands made.
    We made 70% of the trim, IP and console pieces in those cars.

    Pontiac I could stand to be corrected but I know on the domestic versions that we supplied they were plastic.
    They were called: "Ash Burl", "Dark Mahogany", "Dragon Maple", "Eucalyptus" and such.
    You and I have the same interiors and the only thing I don't know cause we did not mold it is the wood "like" wrap around the steering wheel.
    Export versions could have been sourced by another supplier that's why yours might say "Made in United Kingdom".
    We would have problems getting good lead times on film because other suppliers were also using it.

    BTW, I am not trying to argue with anyone on here. I know it is sometimes hard to interpret word inflection over the internet.
    I just know out of the 100's of thousands that I have molded none contained real wood. There might be some high end special orders that
    we did not source that might be real wood, but real wood is not very cost effective. I also launched the faux wood grain for the P415/P450 Ford F150 platform and that is the same plastic applique'.

    Re: What does your interior look like?

    So, I then am forced to wonder how the GM attorneys allowed all of the advertising and brochures to specifically say that the interior featured "genuine Eucalyptus accents on the center stack, instrument panel, shifter plate, door armrests, and steering wheel"...that quote is directly from the 1SC and 1SF package descriptions in the 2006 STS brochure. I'm not saying you are wrong, just that I'm a bit pissed off that the General lied about it if true.

    I always thought after atleast 08 it was real wood. The 08 CTS had real wood im pretty sure. Shifter, Steering wheel and trim etc.

    No question is dumb. Just don't ask it if you can't stomach the response (or no response)!

    When I want to look at cars, interior and exterior (and I do it a lot), I go to Cars.com and look at new and used cars. They have tons of pictures. I even have the Cars.com app on my phone and look all the time with it.

    You can do what you like, but that would be way easier than harassing members on here to try to get them do something for you.
