Hey guys. From the title you can tell I am a new owner of a 2000 Catera, actually first ever Caddy. and I have to say I love it. Don,t think I will get another car. Next car will be the CTS. I do have one question though, Does anybody know of a good way to keep the leather looking good? What kind of products to use to clean and or protect and keep the leather soft? My car also when I bought it used did not come with an owners manual. Can the bose system be adapted to XM radio? I just ordered a manual on cd from ebay till then any help would be great. One more question, can the climate control be changed from fahreneit to Celcius? Thanks in advance.

I dont know much about leather care,but on Bose system you can connect those two with a FM transmiter and if you hold down the auto button on the driver side for five seconds it will switch it to C or F or otherwise.

try www.leatherique.com (http://www.leatherique.com).
They make the best products for your leather. I have been using the cleaner
and rejuvenator on several cars and the results are excellent.
By the way, thank goodness the Catera is not a Cadillac. It's just a rebadged
German Opel Omega.
Best regards

Try this site. I got the complete 1998 catera manual. It has the 2000 listed and it's free.
