On mon my shorty spilt orange juice all over the place, I left some cologne in the door panel & it leaked out, last night I scraped the bottom of the bumper at a drive thru, and today makes 2 weeks I 've had the car.

Harsh, man
I've had my CTS for 3 weeks, and I've been pretty strict about having no food/drink/smoke inside. So far it's paid off :D

At least the cologne makes the car smell nice

No food or drinks allowed in our Caddy either. I remember one time we went to macdonals, JUST ONE TIME, we ate in the Cad, and for one week, its smelled like french fries mixed with leather, and believe me its not a good smell. Turns out there was a medium fries behind the second row seats, and thats when we agreed NO MORE

That's pretty funny 03escalade(while nasty at the same time) But the escalade is pretty big you could problem lose small children in it too.
Yeah that sucks Amg I haven't gotten new rims yet but I had tons of problems w/ the potholes out here in Ny w/ my last car. I definitely don't want to go thru that again.
The scuff I got is really unoticeable, but I know it's there.
I wanted to run and go get it fixed but I'm gettin a body kit soon and it comes w/ a front lip so my body shop guy can fix it when he puts it on. Now I have to wait:banghead:

About a week ago, I got back home from work and I had a craving for Taco Bell drive thru. My girlfriend was gone with my other car (Cavalier), and I didn't want to use my Caddy, so I just had to make a sandwich at home. That's discipline :cool:

good tip, I'll need to save on gas since I've been pumping premium into the new car. Makes me miss my old Grand Am a little.

You sacrificed a Taco Bell meal for the sake of the Cad! I wish I could do that but when I'm hungry for something I really particullarly like, I just have to have it, especially if its Taco Bell. I love the Mexican Pizza there, but its to fatty. Another of my favorites is the Subway Italian BMT. A little healthier, and it wont stick up the car as bad, since its mostly a salad inside a bun.

OK.... Dont complain about putting premium in...... I get 14mpg city, and I enjoy ever minute of that gas guzzling experience...

Second, premium (at least where I live) in only about 10c more, so when I fill up with my 20 gallons (when i run it low), it is only $2 more than regular....... I know it adds up, but $2 more/ fill up is pretty insignificant considering your driving such a good car......

Third, I have heard friday is the worst day to fill up (demand for gas... travelers on the weekend)..... usually tues-thurs is the best day to fill.......
