:welcome: all new STS-V owners to the car and the Cadi Forum.
Just ordered mine. Black/Black w/ red inserts.
Awesome color combination, HiTechRV! I have that same color combo in my 06 and love it! I haven't seen an 08 yet with that, so I for one will be looking forward to seeing the pictures when you get it.
Congrats on the new purchase!
I wish it were a purchase but even as I car I will have to turn it I am excited. I sat in one in a lobby in the GM Tech Center when the STS-V first came out and was hooked. I just wish the supercharger pulley came off LOL.
Even so I bet it will be a lot easier to get <5s 0-60's out of than the CTS-V was. I loved that car but I was never willing to do the high RPM clutch sidesteps needed to get best acceleration out of it. Watching the traction control kick in on a shift at 90 MPH was entertaining though. We'll see if I end up missing having a stick or not.
Well, I've been roaming around for a couple days.... I just purchased a 06 STSV from ohio but have to wait a couple days before I even get to sit in it! I am from the houston tx area. I previously had a Trailblazer SS that I sold to get this hot mama of a car.(can i say that here, haha...) its a black on black STSV. LEt me just say I am getting very anxious to see this car!!
Congrats on your purchase. It's going to be a much nicer ride than that SUV. :)
Thanks! Looking forward to contributing as much as i can to this site!
I have been in the market for sometime looking for the 'perfect' STS-V -- My luck came last week when I located on in Columbia, SC. Manufactured in 04/06 , Stealth Gray, Beige Seats/Gray Trim (Rare I take it), 12k miles on it! MINT MINT MINT! I came home from San Francisco late Friday night and they had it in Greenville SC -- Paid 40k for it.
Questions -- How many Grey were produced? Caddillac can't seem to give me an answer - and how can I allow my passengers to watch DVD's while driving!
Mom has a 2005 1SG STS with 35k (bought new) 2007 Kia Sorento (gas mileage mobile), I have an 00 SSEi - Daily Driver (bought new), 00 WS6 (bought new), everyonce in a while driver, 88 Chevy K1500 was my dads (YEP bought new!)
I'm going to be ready forever I'm sure.. thanks in advance for your help!
I figured I'd start my first post here...
I just picked up a '06 STS-V last monday! Light Platinum with the grey interior, has a set of 20" Vogue (CV7?) wheels on it. I have the originals too, but they're absolutely trashed after 18,000 miles.
Hi people! Bob from Canada Just bought my caddy 2 days ago I am looking for a spoiler can you help? will post pictures later of my new ride Thanks
Rick from Calgary, CAN. I imported my 2006 STS-V (Light Platinum/Tango Interior) from a dealer in Cleveland this past July. Friend and I drove it over 2000 miles back to Calgary through Chicago, Minneapolis, and a few small towns in North Dakota and Montana. It has just over 24k miles on it and couldn't have been happier with the whole adventure. I have a new set of chrome stock rims and new rubber on the way. Looking forward to interacting with you all.
Thanks Doc. I think my next step will be speaking with you about upgrading the brakes.
