    About the chrome interior moldings, did you simply order them from Cadillac? If so, would you mind saying how much they cost? Did you install them yourself?

    Re: Show us your STS!

    I went to our local car paint and body shop supplier and found a 21ft roll of adhesive backed mylar trim molding 1/8 wide. I cut it to length and carefully fit it into the grooves that exist between the various parts. It fits in those grooves perfectly and so far is holding well in out AZ heat. I was really surprised what a difference it made. Total cost $21 with about 10ft left. I figured that GM parts wouldn't sell those separately since the supplier ships the pads with the inserts already installed.

    I also put a thin strip right on top where there is an indentation right next to the window.

    I'm gonna have to look into this, it is a small change that works well.

    Thanks, I was surprised when I did it. Since I had so much extra on the coil, I thought I's experiment a bit

    2006 STS N*, acquired Feb 2009 w/28K mi.

    After a 300 mile Sunday cruise to a family gathering in southern Illinois, pardon the bugs on the front bumper.

    what do you think this is?

    I bought one of these for my Z3 before, and it looked like the little chrome half tube things with adhesive on the back.

    Any idea before I spend $30 on this crap?
