    Lovely car! I've washed and detailed a couple of Pearl White cars and was amazed at how cool the finish stayed, even in the summer sun. After seeing yours I'm reminded that I could have kept shopping until I found a Pearlie. Congrats!

    Any major issues as you've approached 100k?

    Re: First Hand Wash!

    Cadillac's white is outstanding and yours is really a jewel. It may be counter-intuitive but white cars look cleaner longer than most. I especially agree with the sentiment; these are loveable cars.

    It must be hard to trade a V.

    Just my blood pressure rising as the CPO coverage expires. I can sense a need for doing the transmission fluid service as gear shifts are a little different than they were 10K miles ago.

    Yeah, I want to do a differential fluid change on mine as I don't know when/if this one was ever done, didn't come up on the report so it's unknown at this point...Glad to hear you haven't had anything ridiculous go on her yet. I'm covered under an extended warranty until 107k for anything major, doesn't cover everything though...ACC or a heated seat goes out, that's on me.
