    What are the diffrences between 06,07,08 STS V

    I know the most V's were made in 06, but what are the major differences, if any from year to year up to 08. I have never seen an 09 STS V I know they made like 76 of them or something but I am interested in the the differences from 06 to 08 V's. They look the same.

    Re: What are the diffrences between 06,07,08 STS V

    I have an 09. My understanding is 06 and 07 are identical to each other and 08 and 09 are almost identical. The tail lights on the 06, 07 are darker than 08 09. Looks like they went to reflective surfaces on the later ones where they were previously doing black surfaces in the taillight assembly. It's the same change in the regular sts. In 08 lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring become not only available, but standard. I know heads up display is standard in 08+ and I think it was only available prior to that but I could be wrong. You have the added fender vent in 08. Oh also 08+ had a different steering wheel than prior. 3 steering wheel buttons on each side instead of 2. I think 08 plus still managed to lose a couple of lbs. not much. 09 the word supercharged no longer appears on the side of the car. 08+ wood doesn't surround the entire center display, it becomes a mix of wood and that aluminum stuff. Is that real aluminum btw?? I think i got it all.

    Key fob changed in 08+ cars also. But I think you got every thing else.

    I think 09 got the 'shark fin' antenna too, while 08 still had the same as earlier years. I would certainly go with the 08, but I love my HUD. Little things that make the car feel more updated.

    Yep I had my 06 for just over 2 years and loved it. that is till I got my 08 It's the little things that add up. Our it's the fact the 06 had 86000 more miles? Either way you can't go wrong. For me it would come down to price.

    Re: What are the diffrences between 06,07,08 STS V

    I have found 4 08's but I cannot get my pen out faster than the other guy they have all sold out from under me in the last week. I am dealing with one right now but a couple from New York hs first dibs on it. I hope to hell their deal falls through today so I can swoop in I am not dickering on price much I have no leg to stand on. I have seen four black sts V sell in the last month 29800, 26700, 29999, and this one is around 29500. Miles were 39000, 66000, 21800, 48252.

    The bank is telling me they are selling for 25000 K I said I wish they were I would be all over that. WTF are they smoking?

    But Like I said I have not been able to even get close to one yet they sell to fast.

    Damn. Everything I've bought that I didn't see in person has been on autotrader. Gotta type sts v as a keyword. Good luck. You'll eventually pick one up.

    Re: What are the diffrences between 06,07,08 STS V

    yeah had it. 08+ key fob looks like the one on your CTS. Before that was this one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-CA...-/190653575125
    the spare key was a completely separate key. Looks like this. http://compare.ebay.com/like/2309530...Types&var=sbar
    All the same functions though. Remote start and passive entry and push start standard.

    I used to have an 07 STS.

    Interesting that you're saying they're selling fast. It seemed around here they were sitting on the lots. I looked at one that was sitting on the lot for a year.
