    Awesome looking car, as I see you owned an STS with the same engine, does the V6 feel smoother in your new XTS? Fuel economy should be about the same.

    Thank you. Car does feel smoother, but I think to some degree it has to do with it being a tighter build and quieter in the cabin. MPG seems to be a bit better than the 2008 STS.

    Correct about the interior. I was thinking of a simple mod to the wheels for $40 at eBay. Any thoughts from anyone?140.jpg

    I think they would look good. On my CTS V I have the chrome valve caps with the Cadillac emblem, they look good.

    Thanks to those who posted pictures! The "real world" images look better than most I've seen in articles about the XTS. MarathonMan89, the "modification" would look great with a Black Raven exterior, and very tasteful. Your car looks beautiful! (The Gray with Light Titanium interior posted earlier looks classic, too!)

    Before you listen to anyone tell you otherwise about the XTS, go take a test drive. It convinced me and I was not sure that a V6 could perform like my old NorthStar.

    It is plenty peppy!

    The high tech stuff I am still figuring out. Not that its difficult, it just takes time. The iPad it came with has some great apps to learn from.
    Glad you like it!

    Many were worried that even though the V6 is more powerful than the Nothstar, that it wouldn't sound good and be too thrashy. But, like my CTS, when it's so well insulated, sound of the engine isn't so much of an issue...

    Do fingerprints show up easily on the screens and steering wheel buttons? The only reason I ask is because I think I can see them in the last picture.

    Also I own a 03 Seville and was thinking of a DTS, because I wanted a roomier car. Is the XTS pretty roomy? I am just over 6 foot, and I definitely want a car that is bigger than my Seville.

    IMG_4239.jpgIMG_4244.jpgHello all,

    Just installed these Black STS-V hubcaps on my 2013 Black Raven Premium XTS (perfect fit). Still not sure whether or not I like them. Anybody care to share their thoughts on how they look?

    Click on Pics to enlarge.

    Thanks,

    Pete

    Um, I've been looking at a lot of XTS models forsale. None have the wood rimmed steering wheel. They have wood on the horn pad spokes, but not on the wheel itself. Do you think that is the new way they are offering wood trim on the steering wheel now?

    I believe so, yes. Which is great, because wood on the wheel is annoying.
