    Re: New to the LS community!

    OP congrats on the V....hopefully the codes that are popping are an easy fix....

    BTW...threee kiddos at 23...God Bless ya....I just turned 35....and my wife just downloaded our first. I could only imagine....

    As far as the 3 kiddos in the backseat...shouldn't be an issue at all.....

    Anyways...I'm looking forward to strapping my little one into his new Recaro Baby Seat when I get back to the states in a few months....

    Enjoy your V and drive it hard....stay safe....

    On to the car, its got Long tube headers, high flow cats, and corsa exhaust. its got a Hochkis rear sway bar, as well as rear bushings i guess. Car has 67,000 miles on it, and i paid 18,500 for it. Oh, and its got the red corvette FRC's on it.

    Its got some little black box in the front lower grill that i cant figure out. It almost looks like a radar detector maybe. Will explorer it some more in the day light.

    Current plans are to black out the grills, consider blacking out the rims. I want to cam it rather soon, (hence the name). It looks to me as though the headlights are aftermarket. Crappy thing is, the passenger headlight is cracked. But the dealership told me they are going to replace it free of charge.

    Enough with the chitter chatter, here are some pictures of the car.







    I'll break out the T2I this weekend and get some good HD pics of her.
    Hello Camdcad,

    Welcome to the forum! This is a great site to learn about your Caddy and get great advice from other members. Your CTS-V looks great with the silver color! I am glad to hear your car feels amazing. I see you have a headlight issue and stated the dealer is going to fix it free of charge. Have you been able to take your vehicle in yet? I also read about the code that had you worried, and you were able to go to a shop who informed you there was nothing to worry about? Just want to check on your vehicle status and make sure everything is well. If you ever have any other concerns or questions you would like to discuss, we can be reached via private message.

    Sincerely,

    Laura M.

    Re: New to the LS community!

    The car has an appointment to go into the shop on wednesday afternoon and have the headlight replaced. As far as the CEL, the only code they could find was one for the cat telling us to replace the cats.

    One other thing i learned last night is that my passenger rear TPS isnt working, when going threw the little digital read outs, my right rear tire shows "---"


    Would it show that if the pressure is too low? or would it just show that if theres something not working with the sensor?

    Hello Camdcad,

    I am glad to see you made an appointment to go into the shop on Wednesday. I am not a certified technician so I am unable to offer technical advice as to what the issue might be. This is something I would wait to bring up with the dealer when you are in. I want to stay involved throughout this process and make sure your vehicle is taken care of. Please let me know after your visit!

    Sincerely,

    Laura M.

    Mberisha, where did you get your recaro baby seat? I really want to get the boys a matching pair of car seats, and then see about getting the newest one some sort of sporty looking infant seat.

    I bought it off of Babies R' Us website....I think it was around $240 with free shipping....

    It's a pretty legit car seat....

    Your tpms should work to the point you can visibly see that the tires are low. When I got my car two this were in the teens from sitting for months. I filled them up and they've maintained pressures fine. I believe I had one with dashes and it took a few miles of driving to d start reading.

    I talked with the dealership last night, they're going to take a look at the tpms tomorrow as well as replace the headlight. Car goes in at around 1ish tomorrow.

    Other then those couple little things i've been tickled by this car. I started looking for a short shifter last night. I saw uuc, kaetech, and b&m were the popular choices, but no one mentioned where they bought theirs from?

    Quite a few on here enjoy the PISNUOFF shifter. I just ordered some bushings from him to take out the slop in some of the linkages (I use Katech).

    Brought my baby home from the hospital in his blue Recaro baby seat in the V.

    Actually drove my Blazer TO the hospital... didn't want water breaking in the V nor did I want the V sitting in the parking lot. So I then went home and swapped cars when it was time to come home.

    walmart.com has the recaro baby seats too. They are large seats but they have excellent reviews and look cool.
