    Motor mounts buy new style UUC from Luke at Lindsay. I do all my own work so I can't help with independent garage. Other hard parts try Rockauto.com they are advertising on billboards here in town. They sell stuff fairly inexpensively.

    Hey I am testing the water with my car. Don't really want a winter car and the Caddy so thinking I should get a car that is good all year.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Had a gentleman in a corvette get my attention at a set of lights, he noticed the black smoke when I was on it hard. (yes I know it needs a tune) and he offered me his services for free (pay for the liscense of course though) I just gotta get the tune files from StealthV if he even still exists..... YAY for grabbing people's attention and YAY for nice car buffs

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Possible new CTS-V buyer here. Has anyone seen a Silver 05 at Stampede Pontiac? Only 32k on it and they are asking $28998. Is that a pretty good price for the year and mileage? Thanks for any responses.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Seems about an average price.... there's a few listed on the autotrader for a couple grand less but have more then double the km's, BigBadBoss101's is significantly cheaper (link above) but has over 110k, so it depends if you're looking for a bargain and will live with higher milage or seems like you've found the lowest milage for a decent price around. There was an 07 on autotrader but $38k and 20k km.

    Might be worth becoming a supporting member and getting your VIN information from the thread in the 04-07 ctsv section, will show more detailed info about any service work done on the car, and well of course I'd also suggest a carfax/carproof for safety (depending if it was an american/canadian car) I bought mine knowing it was beat on and raced but had proof besides what the seller said with that vin check, he blew the first diff at 5k miles.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    I am looking for one with fairly low mileage to use as a DD. I have a new job that will involve another 1000k of highway travel each month. I don't have huge faith in GM reliability and 05s have little or no warranty left so 50k or less.
    I did see the modded black one from Ontario and I am a little interested. But not sure how I would like the modded exhaust noise and I see it has gears which probably makes it a bit worse in the winter. There is also a well priced low mileage 06 in TO but not a fan of the red.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    I use mine for a lot of highway driving. It is stock but for the shifter and CAGS. It is nice and quiet on the road and I get great mileage as long as I'm under 120K. ie less than 10 litre/100KM. Best I did was 27 mpg USA on the way to Vegas in May. I wouldn't even think of using it as a daily driver in the winter though. Last winter I bought a 92 Ford Escort 5 spd for $400. I put $100 into it drove it for about a month and sold it to a guy I know and he is still driving it.
    I drive my truck in the winter (about 9 months of the year!)
    You would probably be able to find one in the US for less money but then you would have to drive it back, open highway driving sounds good to me!

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    I looked at the one at Stampede today. Low K but there was evidence of back seat use, like maybe kids. No big wear of course because of the mileage. It has Pirellis on instead of EMTs and a crack in the front fascia. Some 30k cars are stilll almost like new but this one had kind of a hamster cage smell Still under warranty until April 10 though so I will have to have another look once it is detailed. The warranty makes it a bit more attractive.

    I drove my Jag XJR in the winter and on Pirelli P Zeros so it can be done. That car was a bit heavier and had an auto though. I actually have a winter beater but that was because I have a Vette. Except for rock and salt I can't see leaving the nice wheels at home if the car isn't plastic. Do you park the Caddy to protect the paint or because it doesn't drive well? The factory F1s are the same as on the old Z06 except those weren't EMT. Awful tires except for dry pavement.
    I am from Edmonton where the streets are like goat paths so I am hoping the southern AB roads will be kinder.
    I have bought a few cars from the States but the savings on the CTS-V, once you pay exchange and GST, isn't worth the trouble right now. Canadian prices are very good right now and inspections and shipping from out of country can add another couple thousand to the tab. Last spring I bought my Vette, a supercharged 2002 convertible, from Arizona and drove it back. A really nice trip. I might drive a Caddy back from Vancouver or Winnipeg but that's about it.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    The is V is drivable in winter if you have "knack" for it and dont live on an acerage or up a steep hill. I put rock gaurd on the front and a set of winters on (bliazack LM25).
    I actually enjoyed it more in the snow that my previuos car, a Froester XT with AWD. But I like to be engaged with I drive.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Well my V is gonna be spending a couple weeks sitting at Jack Carter's..... blew the power steering rack a couple days ago and its 10business days to wait for the parts. They were nice enough to honor the warranty wich had expired 11 days prior. Guess thats it for my warranty work though.
