    I am new here today and I am happy!

    Two weeks ago I sold my 2006 Subaru STi with 400 AWHP and only 12,000 miles. It's acceleration was impressive, but anything else was meh! Yes I own an FJ Cruiser too. Today, I was looking for my local dealer to locate a CTS-V 6 speed manual for sale. Two days earlier my wife and I drove through the Caddy lot and saw the car I just bought and was like no that's out of our price range. But, three days later we return to find out it's a guy I know (that takes care of his cars) and he's a salesman and the V is for sale! I got a hell of a deal for this 2012 V 6m. All the chrome blacked out already and an AirRaid intake to boot! The V had 9,000 miles on it and man, I never thought I'd ever own a Caddy in my life. My God this car makes me happy!

    It finally stopped raining here and I had a chance to wash and wax the car. It took me 4 hours to do. First I clay bar ed it and used Poor Boys EX sealer and their Mattie's red wax. The paint is now outstanding. I used to use Zaino for years, but Poor Boys is way easier to apply, lasts as long, and is way cheaper.
