    Re: Selling my 08 STS4, question...

    A dealer in this area has been listing a red 2008 V8 for about $2k less for 4 months. In a drive-by, it looked like a clean 1SG; a few more miles but the V8's have no history of issues and the dealer has a good reputation. IMHO, your asking price is at least twice that too much for the private sale of a V6.

    Times are tough and 2015's are about to hit showrooms. If you can afford to wait, spread the message wider. If you need to trade soon, cut the price significantly. Opinions vary.

    No ACC or HUD also has the smaller 17" wheel option. It is unfortunately for you overpriced for what it is.

    Re: Selling my 08 STS4, question...

    AFAIK, no V6 was ever equipped w' ACC; a few had HUD in later years when options were not as restricted by trim level. Drum's HID's & Intellibeam are a nice surprise. 17" wheels with their 235/50 tires will ride softer than a lower profile but higher performance staggered setup. I must have stated it a hundred times, these cars vary a lot between trim levels.

    Some people don't like ACC and many feel MRC isn't worth the maintenance expense to replace the shocks when they wear out. I'm a bit amused by that position because replacing all an Audi's ball joints can cost almost as much and I've known cars that needed that twice in less miles than I have on my original MRC shocks. YMMV!

    If member Drum can afford to wait for that person looking for what his car has he can get a lot more than otherwise.

    Best of luck!

    Hi, my 05 STS4 N* 1SG with 73k was priced at the Cadillac dealership for $16k. It has every option except HUD. I got the price down to $14k. It was a one owner, all original and everything worked. FYI! Good Luck!

    I thought 1SG includes HUD

    I was of the understanding it was available in 2008 if the vehicle was ordered with the Driver Awareness Package RPO Y53 which includes HUD, Lane Departure Warning and Side Blind Zone Alert.
