    Re: difference between STS4 1sg and Platinum Edition STS?

    I'm disappointed that the Platinum STS was only available in Cashmere. Of all the colours I don't like, this one pretty much tops my list. In regards to the 'V', it doesn't have ACC, but ventilated seats were never available either. Not sure about pre-2008, but I'm quite certain that HUD was available without ACC. You couldn't get ACC without it, but you could get HUD without ACC (HUD is part of the driver awareness package which of course also included lane departure warning and side blind zone alert).

    You've pegged it DD. To get HUD w/o ACC in an early STS it must be a V. Later on, it was available on V6 models with the driver awareness package. Only 1SF & 1SG (i.e. V8-equipped STS) ever got ACC.

    I agree on Cashmere. Not my cup of tea.

    Wow echase3 interesting stuff. What do you mean you have the console. My understanding is that pretty much most of the dash is one piece. Lets skip the song and dance I want to get as much as I can but I have a lot of love for my fellow caddyforums members especially 1 bad cad, such a frequent anzd helpful name. So lets get a good offer and more than likely I'm good. Unless its ridiculous. Again ill show the pics of course.

    Just like turning On the Wipers/Headlights-HighBeams

    I back up my Pick-Up with impunity now. In the back of my mind I know I'm thinking I'll hear the Parking Assist if I'm actually too close to anything (something my F350 doesn't have,,,. This is going to bite-me in the A$$ one day..,)

    I drive my other cars and scan the windshield in front of my thinking "How fast am I going?"

    ...to promote spirited conversation...export models do have trim-level RPO's. A member from Saudi Arabia once quoted a weird RPO (1SV?) and also had other specific options such as an extra set of electric cooling fans and oversize radiator/trans cooler & AC condensor. His typical daytime high temperatures were 125F. As I recall, his N* STS was good until a front end collision and less than responsive dealer put him in a bad spot.

    However, 1SZ is just a marketing program...

    Re: difference between STS4 1sg and Platinum Edition STS?

    ...yes...
    ...e.g. "1SK"- "Option Package #10" for the MAE ("Marketing Area Europe") exports...all the MAE cars (V6 and V8 ) got also the "V08"- heavy duty cooling, they all got HIDs and headlamp washer, the MAE V6 all got JE5/JE2 performance brakes/lining, the MAE V8 all got the Brembo J56 brakes...etc., ...and other neat options and things...

    ...or a "1SJ" for option package 9...whatever this might be...

    ...on the other hand...there are also some options the "domestic" cars got/could have...that never been available on exports...

    ...or another 2 inches of wheelbase like the SLS for the Chinese market (but no N*).

    Re: difference between STS4 1sg and Platinum Edition STS?

    I hear that regulations in Europe say that if you have HIDs the lights have to be adaptive. Not in the sense that you turn the wheel and the lights follow, but instead, under acceleration the beams adjust downward to offset squat of the rear suspension. And under braking they aim up. My buddy's 07 BMW X5 does this. If this is true when did this go into effect, and did it end up affecting the export STS? I know headlamp washers are mandatory with HIDs. Thanks.

    Yep! I think DD was working on a retrofit project.

    For the headlights that point down on acceleration and up on braking?? If so very cool.
