    Difference in STS and STSV

    I know the motor and super charger. But anyone out there willing to give me a break down of what it would take to make a STS into an STSV, eliminating the unneccessary components for a daily driver. (id want the super charger =))

    Not worth converting. Sell the STS, buy and STS-V.

    Agreed. For the amount of time and money you'd spend making your car into a V, you could HAVE a V for less money and that day. Not worth it, IMO.

    Implants are nice, but they just don't beat the real thing.

    Exterior body parts that are unique to the STS V:

    Hood, front bumper, front upper and lower stainless steel mesh grilles, fog lights, rear bumper, rear lower stainless steel mesh grille, rear deck lid spoiler, side skirts, badging . . .

    I think that's it . . .
