I did...and I'm not...I'm just diggin it. I wanted a V when they came out and didn't want to wait no 2-3 years to get one after the price went down. I've been driving mine for nearly 3 yrs now and you guys are just starting.:thepan: I typically keep a car at least 5 years, 10 years if I like it. I would like to keep my V 10 years or more, but if not...it's been real:cloud9:...get it..."V 4 REEL"...is what my license plate says.For such a rare car the resid on the STS-V sucks. If I had bought one new for $80k in 2006 I would be vomiting in my mouth right now.
