Hey Jay my car isn't faster than Nick's I get spanked every time especially now that he has done all the crap to it.
If I wanted to be faster I should have got an Eldo but then I can't haul my friends around with me.
The STS will spank the SLS and the ELDO....The only benefit of an SLS is maybe a smoother ride, because the STS has a sport tuned suspension....thats it........Interior styling is nicer in the STS too, more wood grain, Bose Audio, etc.
And I beg to differ on the whole STS will spank an Eldo mine sure as hell wouldn't I think you are thinking 93-97 because the 98-04 is a pooch compared to the good years I just like the technology in mine I would trade to get back my 94 that northstar was a freaking beast !
I'm most familiar with the ride of the Deville, but I really like the body styling of the '98+ SLS/STS. hence my choosing the SLS after reading posts on this forum, the better fuel economy was a plus. We're looking at retiring my Chrysler in about 5 years and by that time I'll be looking at the 07'+ DTS/DHS.
I also really like the non-painted bottom trim of the SLS, while the painted STS trim is pretty, the dirt roads I have to drive on don't make lower painted trim look good!
The SLS has lower horsepower AT PEAK. But more horsepower through must of the RPM range, and TORQUE. The STS definitely lacks torque. I'm sure my '01 STS would beat my old '97 SLS down a 1/4 mile, but the SLS would have it off the line. I've even thought about swapping the 300 hp cams out of my STS and installing the 275 hp cams. There's really that much difference.
If I had to do it all over again, I'd buy an SLS AJ to hook me up witand install the 3.71 transaxle and get h a PCM to accept the change in ratio.
TarQ! Holy crap man... I haven't seen you in forever... well I guess it has been forever since I've posted in the Sebring forums... how funny is that that we consistently buy the same vehicles!
Anyway.. I was just about to post my first post when I saw this one and felt it specifically applied to me. I purposely chose the SLS. It is cheaper to insure, has more torque at a lower rpm, and has more of a "Cadillac" ride. I don't care what any of you have been smoking but a normal person will not be able to feel an extra 25hp. Plus if you get one like mine that's fully optioned out you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two if it weren't for the "SLS" on the back.
All of that aside, there is no need to be snobbish amongst ourselves... regardless of an SLS or an STS it is still a Seville.. it is still a Cadillac. Just look at it this way if given a choice between a SLS or say a Lexus, MB, etc... which would you choose?
I'm glad you posted that. It needs to be a constant reminder on this board. There are a lot of folks who look down on others for not having a particular TRIM of Seville or Eldorado. It's all Cadillac...and we're all here for the betterment of the brand and of the Cadillac community! :thumbsup:
It started with me wanting to program a key fob,, when i get to the part in diagnostic ..where the RFA is.. it says NO RFA DATA .. I already checked the comfort fuse in the trunk.. i have the back seat out now ..is there a relay that controls the RFA .. .......... is there a way to check the RFA...
I'm really having a hard time with this, top worked for the first couple of years i had it ('17-18) but quit last year. I've not been able to fine a fuse that feeds the hydraulics (thinking it's an electrical problem}. Is the fuse 'in line' or would they have used one of the slots in the fuse...
When the parking brake is pushed down it does not retract when the car is put into gear. I assume that there is a spring that is not working... is it near the pedal or in the parking brake assembly in the rear disk? When the car is in gear I can pull it back to the right position but it takes...
2000 ETC. I have read all the forums. I did the VATS bypass. I have been driving (exclusively) and working on Cadillacs for almost fifty years. Can't figure this one out.
Addendum: Had to junk my 94 Eldo' last spring. Am I going to have to junk this one too?
