    Just got my V

    Just traded my 05 CTS-V in for an 06 STS-V. Just picked it up last night and so far so good. I spent about 4 hours detailing it inside and out today. it is black on black with the tango red interior. chrome wheels, tinted windows and i ordered from D3 the stage 1.5 kit.

    Anything you guys can think of for advise for this car...like how it drives and that sort of thing....or anything i should look out for on this car or should know about.

    It doesn't handle as good as a CTS-V...other than that it's a liitle quirky but it's fine ride overall.

    It dosn't feel as fast but it is. Congrats on buying the fastest color made. Tango red is worth at least 10rwhp.

    hit your TC button twice (puts it into Comp mode) then hit your shifter (as if you are going to manually shift) to the right and leave it alone (puts tranny in Sport mode) Then stomp it and haul ass.

    Re: Just got my V

    If you hit your traction button twice and hold it down for 10 secs after the "Comp Mode"...you can get really squirreley.....as stabilitrac shuts down, Yay!

    Press and hold the traction control botton for over 5 seconds. The display should say "stabillity off". Put foot on accel and press to floor.

    Tire laid.
