    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Well my parts have taken soo long to arrive that 1 of 2 options remains and 1 option can be dismissed.
    The parts have not been lost in shipping....
    The parts probably NEED TO BE MADE and thus incur a long waiting time
    Worst case the mfg/supplier of all or some of the parts in the steering rack went belly up and/or no longer deals with Government Motors.

    My other option is to get in contact with an American dealership and see if I can find someone with the part in stock.... crossing my fingers for Lindsay Caddilac.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Man I should just have Luke @ Lindsay cadillac be my surrogate car care guy. I tell him whats wrong he takes care of me by telling the locals what to do and whats up.

    Turns out There are none of the rack anywhere, he's had one on order since June 4th and another same time as me. He knew to put them as "spac" (rush) orders right away and as such is at the front of the line should any show up. At least he was able to find out that there is a past due notice on the part number with an update scheduled for Aug 14th, so I'm definetly without the car all of August now.... Time to squeeze a rental out of the dealership now that I need to do repairs to my DD.

    So much for having a "summer car"

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Oh it is probably a different gear ratio on the base cars. You would think that there would be some racks from V wrecks somewhere? I'd be tempted to put the plain rack in. At least you would have a car. (I've put 23,000km on mine since April. Houston once, Las Vegas twice)

    See, that's what happens when you don't drive it, seals get dried out and leak etc. I love road trips. Great gas mileage 24+ miles per US gallon at 75+mph.
    I think once I was driving 60ish and hit about 27 average for a tank. That's almost as good as my 1975 Vega!

    You are preaching to the converted. I've been out 5 times now and 4drGTZ has been out once.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    I was planning to go to some track day this year, GM seems to have different plans for me. Even my dd backup is out of commission now due to a kinked tranny cooler line while replacing a radiator. My next car will not be GM, they've lost me after the V is gone.
