    They could have (and should have) incorporated the turn signal into the new air extractor vents instead of having them separate and busying up the fender.

    Besides that, the changes look to be for the better though.

    The buttons are located on the other side of the key FOB. I am sure Scott will post pics of the front and back of the key FOB so you can see everything clearly.

    Key looks great thanks for posting, Scott. Blade of the key looks a little smaller (more narrow) than the blade for the 07's and older. Maybe it's just me.

    Re: 2008 STS-V in Stock

    I like the key integration with the new FOB. Personally I am a little dispointed though. I thought for sure with such a feature packed car they would have included the new GM 2-Way remote system. I love to be able to check the status of my car from inside my house/work. Anyone have that option on their escalade? I had read it was suppose to be available on the 2007 models. How does it work? I found a company that made an add-on to the factory system in my 2007 sts-v so I now have 2-way paging and love it. Give's me ease of mind when I can't see my car for hours and it is sitting in a parking lot.

    Did you order them from your local Caddy parts dept? What are the part numbers? I understand how the dealer will program the FOB to the car, but do they use the serial number to get the key cut correctly to match the door locks?

    regarding gas mileage - I understand the testing procedure changed, which changed epa estimates for all cars. I still think that this car gets far better gas mileage than I expected - considering how powerful it is, it's really pretty amazing!
