    New Redline owner says hi!

    Hey everyone,

    Last week I purchased a stock 2005 CTS-V in Redline with 29,000 KM's (18,000 miles). Love driving this car!

    Glad to have found such an active online community of V enthusiasts. I know I'll have some questions along the way, thanks in advance to those of you who hang here and are helping us newbs out! Hopefully I'll have a chance to return the favour to the group sometime.

    Cheers,

    Jaz

    Re: New Redline owner says hi!

    The car is originally from the USA, imported to Canada by the first owner in 2006. I bought it local to me in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

    I've been looking at V's for a year before catching this one on an online classified post. Hope that my good luck continues with it.

    Cheers

    Jaz

    Hey a BIG welcome to another Manitoba V owner, I'm just one hour south of Winnipeg on the Manitoba border - got by 2006 V in March. My car first came from the US as well, but I flew to Vancouver to pick mine up.

    Re: New Redline owner says hi!

    I think it was a pretty lucky find. The seller was about 10 miles away from me, and it wasn't in the common auto sales forums. I had a google alert set up with a few keywords that notified me a couple days after the owner listed it for sale. Power of the internet, hahaha.

    I was really looking for an 06/07 LS2 due mostly to the rear diff weakness in the 05's being more common - and I wasn't looking for red at all, wanted titanium. The low KM's on this red devil pretty much a sealed the deal. The red has come to grow on me a lot - it's very rare where I live and I think it helps mask the huge tail indicators on the car.

    The shifter feels really loose on this car (huge east/west play when in selected gear), and reverse is really elusive to hit without a few tries. I hope this is just bushings and a stock shifter upgrade fix and not something bigger like internal transmission issues. From what I've learned about the gen1, the T56 is pretty solid but the stock shifters are common crap and many V drivers upgrade the shifter anyway. I'll have to look around for the current details on that and/or start a new thread later about my shifter.

    Thanks to all for the warm welcome here!

    Welcome!

    Those polished/chrome rims look horrible on it. If you want, I can take them off your hands . . . . if you pay me.

    OP - shifter is easy. Get PISINUOFF version and stay away from others. Also get CS motor mounts. Guarantee your drivers side is going out even at those miles. Anything else, like u said power of the internet. Just search. This vehicle has been around for 7+ years and just about every question has been answered.
