Oh well
man, those are the best STS'. =P


the interior leaves me with something to be desired, however. For $70k Canadian, there are a helluva damn lot of cheap spots. As a whole, it'* not that quite up to par with its in-class rivals, ie, Lexus, BMW, etc... hasn't really been since the body style came out in '98.

I know exactly what you're talking about with the interior. If I had the money to buy a Cadillac though, it would be a CTS-V with the LS1

You're talking about the interior on the NEW STS? Not the Seville, I'm talking the one that'* called just STS. Hehe, the car mags weren't even that hard on it They said it'* damn close to one of those Mercedes in overall quality, ability and appeal, and for quite a bit less coin, too. Forget which Merc, they're all the same to me, I could care less about them Caddy is coming back, baby

Actually the 3.5L V-6 (in the 2001+ Auroras) is the Shortstar. Technically the 4.0L is a smaller version of the original 4.6L Northstar, which is why it'* commonly also called a Northstar... some Olds & Caddy nuts have still issues with that terminology (same name for 2 different engines), but generally it'* accepted.

Okay, that just makes no sense Wouldn't you think the 4.0L would be called the Shortstar due to it'* smaller displacement than the standerd 4.6L? And is the 3.5 even technically related to the Northstar, even? This is so silly, lol

You really will get better answers to many of these questions here at ACNA. Lotsa folks there know lotsa Aurora-related stuff.

Naw, I'm referring to the 1998-2004 Seville STS.

Its cheap touches here and there *really* add up. But the engine still sounds sweet

I figured, repin. And I agree Although I haven't ever heard it revved up, the horsey and torque numbers sure are mouth-watering But it still looks like ***
