    I try to attend some of the car club meets in the area and it would be great if you showed up so I won't be the only STS-V. I sometimes go to the Donut Shop in Huntington Beach on Adams and Magnolia Saturday mornings.

    Speaking of.....This morning in Orange County, I saw a black STS-V on the 5 in Tustin/Irvine, but it was a bit odd....It had the Orange and Clear faceted CTS fogs. I'm wondering if it was a salvage rebuild where some one used the wrong fogs.

    Your car looks great, are those the rims you have for sale on the classifieds? The 8K HID's do they make a difference in terms of vision at night, the lights on my car kinda suck compared to my last one.

    Yes, those are the wheels for sale. I got 55w 8ks and they light up the road perfectly when paired with a 3k fog light.

    Got our 06 V about 6 months ago. Silver/Silver no deletes. After 1,000+ miles no problems or lost races. Great car!

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    Hi all, I picked up mine earlier this month. Sorry about contributing to your decline in resale for those of you that bought new. I did'nt want the black or silver so my options were really limited. I live in Buffalo so haven't had a chance to really get on it for any extended period of time, or even really drive it, been using my Trailblazer SS, but interior and exterior are flawless! 42k miles, under GMPP warranty until 2013 or 66k. Owned by an older guy and delivered to me from Nebraska. Even came with OnStar and XM paid ahead.
    First mod planned is the Spectre intake. I also have a Nitrous Express wet kit that's currently on my truck that I'd love to throw on for S&G, if it will take it.

    EDIT: Won't let me post pics/link. Picture a stock 06 Stealth Gray with cashmere interior.

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    I updated my STS-V with the Spectre Intake. I had it installed back in November and so far no issues. I love the sound, no mistaking that you have a blower and I actually can feel the improved power.





    There is a group buy going on for the intake.

    Joex1, O you live in Buffalo, I'm from there. Its very "painful" when I visit home - no where to spread my wings. I'm frequent in the DC & ATL Metro areas wheres there is plenty of roads and other drivers that allow you to sample your car's abilities, lol.

    haha, you really have to pick your spots when you want to open it up. Especially in the winter since the car pulls like a freight train but can't get traction til 3rd-4th gear and you have to keep an eye out for black ice.
    I have some sneaky spots for summer though.

    O, I forgot to describe my V. Black Ice exterior, Tango Red interior, Chrome wheels (factory), Euro spec rear tail lamps. Plans are custom wheels (already in the works), Gibson exhaust, Corsa tips, intake, and a tune.

    I have a 2007 Thunder Gray STS-V black interior and stock wheels that are painted Thunder Gray with 32k on the ticker. I think my first mod will be a Spectre intake.

    Re: STS-V owners, check in!

    I bought this beauty off of ebay in 2009 with 7300 miles on the clock. Nothing unusually special about it, supposedly only 12 are exactly like it from the VIN decoder. Almost 2yrs later I've had the engine and tranny tuned, and added the Spectre intake system. Here is a recent pic of my V.
