After months of looking at Chargers, Challengers, Camaros, etc., I purchased a 2007 STS-V today. It is shear awesomeness. I had no idea that it would be as fast as it is. I love everything about it. I am so glad I did not buy the plain V8. I am sure you will see me posting alot more. I'll try not to ask to many newbie questions.
Ask away and congrats. what did you think of the new Camaro? They look awsome in black with black tinted windows. Challengers are probably at the bottom of the heap for me and Chargers are even further down.. Just full of cheap plastic..
Welcome Brad. You made a good choice as I am sure you got a stellar deal on an '07, as I did with an '06 last year. We are a close knit group since the STS-V is a rare car that you simply don't see every day. Any questions are welcome, we were all newbies once.
Unfortunately with a rare expensive car comes even rarer expensive aftermarket parts. The first thing you should consider once you have some quality cruising time under your belt is an aftermarket exhaust. None of the few choices we have are obnoxious sounding, but they make you feel a little more certain you are driving a 500hp car lol.
Thanks for the input fellows. After my wallet recovers, I will add some goodies to the car. I have discovered the "TC" button means "to crap" as that is almost what my brother did when I turned it off and broke it loose. My lifted Avalanche definately will not do that. As far as the Camaro goes, $ for $, it is one of the best cars out there. They actually had a 2SS yellow one where I got my V. The owners picked it up and pulled it off the showroom floor when I was there. It sounded great and looks better than the Mustang or Chally in my opinion. For anyone considering one, I would recommend waiting. The options are scarce. They need to add little things like memory seats, nav, better stereo, and 2 more doors for me.
By the way, does the nav work without Onstar? I can get the map, but not get directions to work. I did not get the nav book in my car. Any chance I can download the book online somewhere? Thanks in advance.

They did its called the Pontiac G9 GXP lol....but seriously onstar and the nav are separate and have nothing to do with each other. I found the STS-V nav not to be that user friendly compared to my previous Acura and dare I say BMW 7 series which I thought was horrible. I think you have to click on that mail looking icon on the map screen iirc. Someone will chimem in with a link to the manuals I dont remember the link. have fun with your STS-V. My tires are too grippy to have any real fun with TC off
Current vehicle prior to the V is a Chevy Avalanche, 6" lift, 35" tires. Talk about a difference. Now I have a summer driver and winter driver. The only car I had ever owned was a 6 cylinder CTS. It was the 6 speed manual though, so it was pretty fun. Oh, my wife has a Tahoe. I think we are a GM family.
