thanks! This car does not show the signs of her usage, I still drive like I mean it, and definitely don't ***** foot around anything! Hopefully I can get some axles installed, and get to launching like I should be!

On a serious note, congrats! I hope mine makes it that far.

Thats why I slowed down!

As far as maint history, I bought it in december at 164k (I think) with a CEL, and a couple abs codes. I have no history before that, other than it was daily driven in MN including winters. Maintenance since then I have replaced all 4 O2 sensors, and retro-fitted my starter solenoid to work like 99% of the starters (since I could not buy the cadillac solenoid seperately), and I replaced a wheel hub. I need to do the diff bushing, and motor mounts yet. Other than that everything still works as it should. Not sure if its the original diff or not..

Very impressive:thumbsup:!!!
Do you have any exterior shots, would like to see how the paint/body has held up?
Also, at 250K miles I am thinking GM/Caddy should place you and V into an advertisement proving the reliability of their vehicles, your compensation should be any GM product you want.

If it wasn't snowing, I'd get another picture, but this is the only one I have on my phone...

Not yet, but my cat-back is ordered. Hope to get around 450 to the wheels eventually, but I've had issues with having a modded dd in the past, so I'll keep her stock-ish for a while, unless I have a reason to rebuild it, then I will probably spend more than I need!

Nice, that car can go another 175K, you seriously need to think about contacting GM/Caddy, as not only has the motor performed well, the exterior of the car looks great, CONGRATS!!!

Sadly, I think the last year LMB was available on any Vette was 2008, it was replaced by JSB/JetStreamBlue, which looks almost as good. The CyberGray is da tits!!!

Yeah my friend who is a used car salesman said there was a CTS-V going through next week with 215k on the clock. I wonder how much its worth at that point haha.

Whoa! 175k and 213k. Gonna turn 50k soon myself, and the way it feels, 200k sure seems like it's a real possibility. It's a testament to the whole auto industry and, in this case, particularly to GM on how well built cars are these days.

Remind me not to trade mine in on a VW anytime soon. :rolleyes:

Must be easy to keep your car reliable when all you do with it is drive under 3k RPM and do a parking lot burnout on that rare occasion.....
