    Re: New 2007 Imperial

    No.....No tranny nor suspension troubles. I think I had enough, regardless.

    I have no trouble with my '03 T.C. Limited, and I like it very much. However, there is one car that a friends has, that I drove for an extended time period, and I fell in love with it, and I really really want to order an '06 {the final year}. I love the 4-wheel steering "feel" asnd the power and the power reclining rear seats, and the style of the interior, and the uniqeness of the exterior and the overall "feel" & responce of the car. But, I REALLY don't want to patronize a non-domestic car company, and would rather buy a homeland product, and also the car is just too expensive for me, at $ 64,500. It's the "Q" at Infiniti > Q45.
    My son does & buys & gets whatever he wants, even if I am against it. My wife does not spend too much, she is good that way, but outside of cautious spending habits, she damn well does whatever she wants, even if I don't like it~ MAYBE, I should follow the examples they set ???

    Actually there's plenty of aftermarket companies that offer coil kits that it's not worth playing around with used stuff. We did a coil conversion on my son's MKVIII ourselves in a couple hours and it was a snap. The whole thing cost something like $500 as I recall, and you can chose your trim height. My son went with a 2" drop I think.

    Yeah and It would ride almost as good as the air bags would.

    Actually, the car rode BETTER than with the airbags IMO.

    Re: New 2007 Imperial

    Yeah. Could be that the new stuff we installed was just that, NEW. Who knows though. You ever take a car with 80-90K miles and put a new set of 4 strut/shocks on it? The car feels like new again right? That's kind of how this felt, except that it felt a little tighter to me. Still had a smooth ride though, and now looked hot because of the lowering.Those look REAL mean after lowering.

    I own 8 Imperials so I feel qualified to make the statement that that car is butt-arse UGLY. The front is a failed attempt to add an Imperial hallmark to a 300 and the rear looks like it's off a Kia (I forget which one)...not to mention it's way to SHORT.

    The Imperial should be sleeker not so chubby looking. As for interior, a butter cream with exterior color piping. Forget the suicide doors, just make the locks like a Mercedes, and use an air suspension. The engine should be a 383 based engine rated at 300 HP.

    As for bringing back the Fleetwood, yes as a more contemporary Full Sized Cadillac, with classic styling and better handling, and engine displacement Fleetwood 5.0.
