I see you've got your years picked out...out of those I'd go for the '07. The steering wheel controls allow you to advance through the preset radio stations and cd discs and I think the '06's don't. But, the '08 brings in HUD and lane departure feature.There's already three to four threads asking the very same questions. Please take a minute and look through them.
It has a VIDEO jack that you can plug your ipod into, it DOES NOT display on the video screen unless you are sitting still watching a video through the ipod and with the connection from the bottom of the ipod rather than the top. The connectors are at the rear of the console, inside it, but, are not for the rear seat passengers.Cool. Thanks. Does the STS-V have an iPod jack? I read that it has rear seat A/V jacks, I wonder if I could hook it up that way?
No rear end issues or trans issues like the CTS-V to worry about???
I originally was looking for a CTS-V but then found a couple STS-Vs in my price range. I know this is the STS-V forum, but anyone have an opinion or preference of Vs? The main difference to me is the manual vs. auto trans, but I have yet to find a STS-V close by to drive.
I agree with CIWS, both great cars... but a completely different purpose. The only other things i'd like to add is the following: The CTS-V is just that, a base model cadillac with a big motor.... don't get me wrong, i love the car and with it being a cadillac it is still very nice. However the fit and finish reflects my opinion about it. The STS-V was created from scratch to compete with the german 'super-sedans', so there was a different purpose to the engineering put into it. Much nicer fit and finish, much like the competition it was created to compete with. However the one major downside i've found with the STS-V is the ability to modify. The CTS-V has a very commonly modified drivetrain, there are many parts avail. and many people know that drivetrain inside and out so it's easier to get it worked on. The sts-v however has a motor that was only in 2 production vehicles (STS-V and XLR-V) and even those two are different, and both were a very limited production car.I originally was looking for a CTS-V but then found a couple STS-Vs in my price range.

For pure speed CTS-V
For Pure Refinement STS-V Though the new 09 CTS-V is slightly more upscale than the older STS-V
CTS-Vs are pretty common sight but the STS-V is pretty rare sight so I feel pretty special driving one.
