Ehhh mine didn't come with them for my year model so I don't want them. If I had an 08 or 09 I'd want them on there.

It's almost comical -- I bet Advance Auto is out of them at every store around here.. Sometimes they have the set of three 'round' and even the 'wannabe' stick on vent both -- Popular among Chrysler Magnum, Charger owners, Ford Crown Vics with that truck lift and 30" rims or what not, .. I'm going to stop now before I :stirpot:

I like em better stuck on places that can't even be vented or don't need venting if they were real.

I saw them on the STS loaner I had and the functional ones on the STS-V and I didnt like them at all. Only reason to add them now is to make your car look newer than it is i guess? They made a few other changes to the 08+ like no wood on the ashtray but wood on the glove box area strip etc. Small but noticable changes.

Well until they redesign, which should be around 2011/12 model year. Then they'll almost certainly take them off the vehicles to change the look. Note this last year of the XLR and the new SRX have a different style and those are not there.

Take a GOOD look at the '09 XLR they ARE there:thepan:...they are verticle at the back of the front fenders.

They are not the same kind of vent, as you state it's now a verticle, like on the 2010 SRX :thepan:

Won't matter for us cuz STS is D-E-A-D.
