    Getting my 2008 STS-V this week :)

    I'm getting my 2008 STS-V this week. Black / Black with 50k miles. Picked it up from Manheim Auto Auctions. I can't wait

    The first few mods I'm considering are the CTS-V shifter and chrome stock rims.

    The only thing missing from the car are the floor mats, which isn't a huge deal. Gonna have to see if its worth ordering the factory ones or getting custom embroidered ones.

    Anything else you guys think I should know?

    Welcome to the small club! I, too have a 2008 STS-V with the fastest color, black/black. Ok you other colors, flame away! I know that thundergray guys think they're the fastest.
    Where are you located? Maybe we'll pass each other one day.

    ThunderGray is spelled with capital letters and is a sign of respect. Because we are the Fastest, most beautiful, Cadillac out there Bar None
    Now that we are finished with that business.
    A big Congraulations on your new addition to the Family. I'm sure I speak for some others in saying we would be very happy in reading about your adventures with your new Ride.
    The truck does not look like a 08 STSV, so when you have time, please post pictures of the new ride for all of us to enjoy with you, and welcome to 08 Land.

    Welcome to the 'elite' as well my friend -- we come together in small numbers!! -

    I don't care which is the fastest -- I have a Stealth Gray '06 with 24k -- Light Gray interior.. I call it the classiest (and rarest) color combo..

    Because it sits beside my white diamond '08 EXT wit Black interior..

    Welcome and congrats to your V.

    Mine is black/black so I decided to put light gray V mats into my V. Interior looks now a little lighter, I love em and especially to have the STS V rocket here in Germany.

    Here`s a pic from the mat`s

    Did you happen to purchase the one from Daytona Manheim? If so, you got a good deal!

    Enjoy it.

    I did, via their Pittsburgh location. The guy I deal with knows that location much better.

    I would never smoke in my "THUNDER GREY" STS-V. But since it is black/ black, then I guess it is OK.
