My "new" 2002 SLS


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

A couple months ago a bought a "new" car - a 2002 SLS.

I wanted "as close the same" as what I already had. I really wanted an '03 or '04 STS, but when I found this one, I couldn't pass it up.

I bought it off the 2nd owners. They had purchased the car as an optimum used vehicle with 4-year warranty. As such, the car has always been maintained at the dealership it was originally sold at. I have a printout of the full history, starting with the PDI at 5km.

I paid $6500 certified, and it had just shy of 97,000km at time of ownership transfer.

Some photos of the '02 SLS with my '93 STS:




And the first 100k (no idea how Texas Jim can take such photos clearly at speed!):


So far I love it... Not quite as quick as the STS but its great having a car where everything works *knock on wood*. Really quiet and noticably lower-revving at highway speeds too, which is nice. I've noticed 2-3mpg improvement which I hadn't expected over the STS, and very welcome in the face of $1.30/litre gas.

I've got a few questions that I'll be posting in the next couple days but thought I'd ease into it. Until next time! B)

Thanks guys!

Scott - The car came with new Michelin Hydroedges (and I have Blizzaks on CTS rims from my old STS for the winter). Once the Micelins are worn out, I'll see what 17" STS rims I can find!

Before getting an STS badge, I need to replace some of the trim (woodgrain only goes as far back as the front door handles!). But in reality, I'll probably never bother. Though I would like to find a woodgrain shifter knob.

I'm about to post a "is my front motor mount shot" thread complete with video, please check it out!
