    Hello Harry - long time since we last communicated. Thats funny because I just bought a 2009 XLR and like you I want to get the CTS-V, but I am keeping my STS-V. I love it too much.

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    Hello Harry - good to hear from you again. I just bought an 09 XLR and am looking forward to buying a CTS-V but I will be keeping my STS-V. You are right about the gas tank though. At the speeds we drive the tank empties after 90 mins! Since Cadillac withdrew from the European market (temporarily) where are you getting the Euro homologated CTS-V? The distributor went bust.

    Welcome here
    You can`t believe what kind a head-turner this car is here in Germany. Next month I have it for two years and still love it like day 1 when I bought it.

    Too bad, right now we have about 10 inch of snow and temp. around 10 - 25°so my two Cadillac`s have to stay in the garage - but no problems with my wifes Chevy SUV AWD at this weather condition.

    My V is black/black hope to get seeing some pics of yours!

    Just bought a "NEW" 2008 STS V. Light Platinum in color with Ebony interior.

    Car was supposedly demo driven by the dealership owner for 3900 miles and untitled. Obviously bone stock. Got a great deal on it. So far I'm lovin it. Here's a few pics.

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    I just purchased mine, sight unseen, from Chicago. 2008, black/black. Vin decoder says it's the only 1 of 459 like it. 1 of only 6 without the sunroof. I'm not a big sunroof fan, especially in the heat of Las Vegas.
    I suppose some of you are wondering why buy an expensive car sight unseen? I had a 3rd party drop by and take a look. I also have the car fax and the vis (i think it's called) from my local dealer and a gmpp extended warranty.
    The price was good enough that i can get out of it pretty easy if i'm not happy with it. After just selling my 04 black/black cts-v, i am really missing the hp. Now i've just got to wait for the transport truck to get here in a week.
    Wish me luck and if you're in Las Vegas or SoCal, look for the black V without a sunroof.

    I am here in Orange County CA. I would notice any STS-V on the road since I haven't seen one yet since I got mine last August.

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    I bought a 2007 with 31K on the clock this afternoon at Bob Steele Chevrolet here in Cocoa, FL. It's Silver with a Black interior (attached a camera phone pic).

    I bought the extended warranty which gets me 5 years from today and 75,000 miles - on a V which I plan on driving pretty aggressively, $3K for the warranty doesn't seem too bad.

    I shopped EVERYWHERE for this car and I got some good comps from other dealers across the nation but they were 3 or 4 owner cars, or had been in accidents, etc.

    This is a 1 owner, clean carfax, and it's in BEAUTIFUL condition. I plan on getting the windows tinted (legal here in FL) and probably get the headrest DVD's so my kids are entertained - that is the most important thing for a parent on a road trip :-)

    I plan on driving this until the wheels fall off. I previously owned a 300C SRT8 and I missed the hell out of that horsepower, so I'm trilled to be back in the game with a 400+ HP car.

    I look forward to learning more about the car as I get more familiar with it and I appreciate much of the advice that I have found on here already. This has already proven to be a very informative site.

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    I got my 06 Black on Black 10 months ago. I love the car. Two weeks after I got it, I took my wife to Vegas in it.
    While cruising the strip my wife had an interesting comment about my car: She said
    "I can tell this is a MAN'S car because everytime we stop at a light, all the men on the street look at your car and then they look at who's driving and not one of them looks at me!"
    I said get used to it because they all wish they had this car.
    GizmoQ and GizmoQ like this.
