    Re: STS-V owners, check in!

    Im a new caddy owner, so hello all! Its a 2006 STS-V I belive it to be fully loaded. It has more things then I could ever want in a car. Think it has me spoiled for life(as well as in debt ) Cant say much about the dealer experience as it was a friend.

    Re: STS-V owners, check in!

    Just traded in my black CTS-V for a Black STS-V with the black and red interior. The interior is funky but I said what the hell. They sent the car out to get the windows tinted and I'll get her tomorrow. I am sad not to have a stick anymore but with my 2 year lease I hope to see a LS7 CTS-V when I'm up.

    Hello… Picked up a Titanium and Black STSV three months ago. Very cool ride! Think I have all the options, not sure I really had a choice. Nice to see a forum to answer questions and get some good G2 on how to mod this bad boy up....

    More Pictures:


    The mesh grille is like those used on the V-16 Caddy's back in the late 30's. The brake ducts are real too.


    Spoiler, LED tail lights, rear parking sensors


    14.3" Brembo brakes, 19" wheels, 275-40 run flats


    2-1/2" stainless dual exhaust, independant rear suspension, 3.23 gears


    Real brake ducts


    Built in Michigan by Michiginonions?


    The air intake and throttle body are actually on the BACK of the engine. An oil change takes 9 quarts of Mobil1.


    4 different traction/stability modes, launch control, and manu-matic shifting on the 6 speed.

    Looks great.

    I'd get out my wrench, ASAP, and take all that plastic covering crap off the engine bay though. That's got to hold a LOT of heat.

    I bought my platinum STS-V on Tuesday. Went to get my oil changed in my Escalade ESV on Friday, test drove a black STS-V. Took it up to 115mph quickly on the test drive racing a new Jaguar convertible and it was all over after that. Great handling and acceleration for an American sedan.

    Boy the black ones look mighty pretty!!!

    Looks like you washed it with Dawn dishwashing soap. Then claybar'd the car with a fresh mixture of water and Dawn. Rinsed & dried using a clean new yard blower, and then put a layer of Zaino Z1, let it dry for half an hour and then put a few final coats of Zaino Z2 on it, allowing 12 hours between coats. You then probably bought a California duster and dust it off every morning

    I've done that, no better shine on the planet. The STS-V is looking good

    Peter,

    For a second I thought you may have been watching me from across the street or something.

    You were spot on up to the clay bar phase. I was amazed how much trash there was on a new car.

    I actually went straight to the Zaino Z-2 with the ZFX activator mixed in. 2 coats of that and finished off with the Z-8 spray.

    Re: STS-V owners, check in!

    Just bought an STS-V. Does anyone know if you can put larger aftermarket wheels on it without any problems? Didn't know if the diff size wheels would preclude you from doing so and the salesman didn't know......Thanks

    Re: STS-V owners, check in!

    There is actually a function in the navigation system that will recalibrate the car to your new wheels/tires. Be sure that you have about 10 miles of mostly straight road when you perform this calibration.

    Start by pressing the "config" button on the dash, then select the navigation button on the screen, then select the "distance" button on the screen.

    We got our Thunder Gray V last Wednesday on November 22. Still beaking it in with only 300 miles on it. I work at the dealer where I purchased it and went on the dealer trade to pick it up. Drove it back to L.A. from San Diego... a nice civilized Hot Rod.
