    Buyers guide?

    Hi all, I'm in the market for an STS-V. I don't see a buyer's guide anywhere, is there anything specific I should be on the lookout for?

    If anyone is selling, I'm looking for a good example within a days' drive of New Orleans. Let me know what you've got!

    Re: Buyers guide?

    Car was made 2006-2009. For 2008 there were some significant changes.

    Newer style steering wheel with more controls.
    Fender vents added
    Heads up display added
    Side blind zone alert added
    Lane departure warning system added
    Tail lights changed slightly. (Surfaces in the taillight lens went from black to reflective. This gives the older ones a slightly smoked look and the newer ones a very red look.)

    And some other very minor things like the move from bolts to a latch to disconnect the battery cables.

    06-07 the only change I can think of is the data plate on the hand built engines didn't start including the name of the builder until 2007.

    08-09 minor stuff. Removal of the word "supercharged" next to the v logo on the sides of the car for 2009
    Addition of the "shark fin" antenna for 2009
    Addition of speed advisory for 2009.

    Year by year the car becomes exceedingly rare.

    There is the all black interior, the black with tango red interior and a grey/black interior.

    The car was only made in black, silver or this bluish greenish gray which is actually pretty nice and somewhat rare. The only exception to this is in 2009 when black ice was offered. This is a color similar to if not the same as black diamond tricoat. Flakes in the paint.

    The only option ever available when these cars were purchased was a sunroof delete so you don't have to worry about trying to find one with the "right" options. Biggest thing feature wise would be the addition of heads up display in 2008 like I said.

    Performance wise, no change throughout the life of the STS-V.
