    So I had hoped to post different images of my new to me 2008 sts v but apparently the deer in the middle of road at 2 am had different ideas. Goes in to the body shop on Monday. I'm bummed, had it just over a week and only driven it a few times.

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    I own a 2008 STS-V which is garaged in Rome, no not Rome NY but the real Rome - the one in Italy. It is probably one of only 2 or 3 in all of Italy a country of 60 million with the world's best food and among the best roads in the world. It is a joy to drive this car at the speeds at which it was intended. I love taking it out on the autostada and maxing it at its speed limited 250 km/h (155 mph). The most aggressive drivers in Italy all appear to drive Audis and there is nothing more enjoyable than running up their backside and seeing the look on their faces because they do not understand what is behind them - once they move over (usually at speeds above 200 km/h (120 mph)) sweat breaks out on their upper lips as they try to keep up. Any problems? Well yes, at speed this car guzzles and I find myself stopping for gas every two hours - GM - make your cars with 80-liter gas tanks please (>20 gallons). Please contact me if I can give you any more information about driving Cadillacs in Europe.

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    A continuation of the Rome adventure... sorry it has taken me a few days to respond. I actually do not own a house or apartment in Rome. I live in the UK and Rome is only a two hour flight away. I keep the car in a friend's garage - he owns 150 cars - mostly GM vehicles from the 20s through the noughties. I am looking to buy a CTS-V - I agree that dynamically it is the better car but when I bought my STS-V if I remember correctly the CTS-V was not yet available. My Roman friend has a CTS-V and I have gotten it up to its European-restricted top speed of 304 km/h (188 mph) on one of the highways leading into Rome ("all roads lead to Rome"). This summer we are going to take both the STS-V and the CTS-V to Germany and meet up with some BMW M5 owners for a showdown. There are some lightly travelled highways in Southern Germany that are propitious grounds for high-speed travel - but on the weekends and early in the morning. BTW, if the bug grabs you it is very easy to ship your Cadillac over for a few weeks of European driving - approximately $2k for the shipping plus your own flight. I can promise you the adventure of a lifetime.

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    I have a question.........How come you guys don't drive Italian cars? Like let's say Ferraris or Lamborghinis. I think if I lived in Rome or near Rome that's what I'd be driving. lol.

    Well if I could afford the trip I'd go.

    Re: Tell us about your STS-V!

    Well you make a very good point but since my friend is Italian and I, although born in Detroit, grew up in Italy we have never been impressed with Maserati, Ferrari and Lamborghini. Firstly, they are all very unreliable and high-maintenance and secondly and most importantly they are driven by people that you would not want to associate with. These cars, and especially Ferrari and Lamborghini do not have a good reputation in Italy and are extremely rare. You can drive the length and the breadth of the boot without ever seeing a Ferrari. It is for the same reason that any elegant man would not be caught dead in a suit made by Armani - in Italy it is just not cool. Ferraris are for people with more money than sense in the Middle East, China and the USA. The most aspirational car brands for Italians are Audis on the sedan and station wagon side and Porsche on the sports car side. Cadillac is, judging from the reactions I always get, the coolest brand in Italy - unfortunately there are just not that many Cadillacs in circulation. But that is a marketing and pricing problem that Cadillac can and needs to resolve.
