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.
    Wrong. I've cracked several and bought a replacements. I snapped the old one and there sure as hell is wood there.

    Man, I was so mad at myself when I broke one. Those dang things are expensive!

    No offense intended, but now I feel better.

    Re: What does your interior look like?

    certain veneers will look like plastic or a fake print or something like that.
    Most likely it was coated with a protective layer on front and back that when heated in the mold would dissolve to create a better transparent bond with the top coating and underlayment.
    Since wood this thin would be rather easy to break.

    @ Ghost - you should drive more, I just hit 80k miles on my 08.
    I don't recall what year yours is but the wood you have under the shifter looks different than mine but the rest is the same.

    I would really like the dark black/grey wood from the V series.
    Not sure it would look right with my cashmere interior though

    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.
    Hmmmm looking at interior designs is far from knowing what I'm looking at. I'm not familiar with cadillac and want to see what's out there. I'm in the market for one and waiting for the one to scream to me "BUY ME!"

    OT: I heard mixed review about the STS motor and its problems and other stuff. With the research, I have found out that it was mainly and commonly known on V6 motors and not so much with the V8 northstar. Without this forum, I wouldn't even think twice on purchasing a Cadillac. Bottom line, I know nothing about these cars. If it didn't cost $5 a gal for gas, I wouldn't mind driving around and looking at different STS interiors. Unfortunately, there isn't many dealers around my town that stock them. Now that here discontinued, I could expect more pop up at dealers in the next yr or so.

    is3_ftw,

    I took the liberty of running your ZIP code through the Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned website; I see that there are two STS sedans available at VIC ALFONSO CADILLAC, INC at the time of my inquiry. I hope this is helpful for you, and let us know if we can check into anything further.

    Re: What does your interior look like?

    Im feeling like there is a lack of support on helping other members in here. Am I asking to much on wanting to see your interior and specify wood/color? If so, is there another Cadillac Forum that I can go to that will help without the bashing or criticizing my thread? 3 out of 3 pages and only 3 or so members posted pics. Seriously? You guys post like I havent done any research. I would like you guys to use the zip code I posted, and see how many 05-09 STS you can find within 50 miles from where I live. Dont specify color, motor, mileage, etc.

    Thank you for taking the time help with my inquiry. Unfortunately, Portland is 2hrs from where I live. If you check Autotrader, you will also noticed that there is only a handful of STS within 50 miles from where I live. And less than that in V8 motors. I did go and check out the silver STS with custom wheels that is only 2 miles away. They didnt have the V6 STS in stock at the time I went.






    Since I probably wont post anything more. I might as well go out with a bang. From those members who bashed on me and not contributed to this thread. You guys should get off your high horse and get the stick out your @$$. Those kind of comments makes you look like your to stuck up to help. I can see how the 05-11 STS forum is small, while other parts of this forum is more active. Criticizing people just scares them away from wanting to post or just leave this forum from all the hatred you put onto them. Now if your just naive on what interior you have, then maybe you should just keep your comments to yourself and not waste my time on having to post this hate post

    Since you think everyone has the time to take pics of their interior and upload them, it's obvious you are sitting in your mom's basement with nothing else to do. Good luck!

    Check ebay. They have pic of interiors galore!

    Now beat it kid! (If you're not kid, you act like one!)

    Re: What does your interior look like?

    I had to double check that I was on the Cadillac forum... For a second there, I thought I was on the R6 forum. This was in intertaining thread, not at all useful, but just like a train wreck, I couldn't look away.
    OP, if you haven't already left... This forum is very helpful when looking for guidence on repairs, modifications, ect. As far as getting us to just take photos of our interiors for you to look at goes, obviously not what you were expecting. There are only a few otions when it comes to the interior of the 05-10 STS, even fewer when looking into the V model, whatever you have seen by doing a search on line is probably about it... There are several pictures posted in the "show us your" sticky as well
