I had a deposit on the car and finally got it yesterday. (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/misc.php?do=getsmilies&wysiwyg=1&forumid=98):burn: (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/misc.php?do=getsmilies&wysiwyg=1&forumid=98#) It's Black/Light Neutral w/ a sunroof. I have the !CAGS Eliminator and LPE CAIK on the way. I haven't even had a chance to read the owners manual. I bought a new 04 with 175 miles on it for $40K even. The only thing I've noticed is...



The engine cover has 2 scratches on it...where they had to use a battery charger. I would LOVE to buy a new cover so if any of you have changed engine covers and has the Caddy one for sale...please PM me!! :worship:

if you bought it "new", and it came with a defect (aka "scratch"), why not ask the dealer to replace it for you under warranty?

First congrats, welcome to the familly blah blah :D

2nd, sound like a really good deal. Good work.

Go get an 18mm wrnch, remove the strut tower brace, and then take that huge bar of soap looking hunk of heat absorbing plastic, and chuck it. The car sounds better with it off. You also get to see the wonderful...errr..uhh..fuel rails, and associated plumbing. Did I mention it sounds better with it off?

You're gonna have a LOT of fun. Get ready to eat a LOT of rice, at least until you put an exhaust on it (then they tend not to challenge as much).

Ummm the dealer I bought from hates me so I can't go back to him. I don't want to purchase anything other than the Caddy cover. Call me crazy buy I really like it. With all the people buying the other covers surely someone has an extra factory one!

Oh and you need to toss that front plate!

That's not my car; I have a custom plate holder in a unique position. And no, you can't have my Caddy cover - it looks nice hanging on the wall. :cheers:
