    Re: Greetings from Russia

    Welcome! The 80's and 90's Cadillacs are very rare outside of the US because Cadillac did not do any efforts exporting the brand really and the cars became less desireable/special than the local competition.

    Tip: If you order from the US you might want to stick to FedEx. They are very quick and pay the customs in advance. So you should have your order within 3 days to a week for not much more money than going USPS.
    If you need heavy stuff try Sweden and Germany first.

So we take our cars to special american club services, there's few of them in Moscow, but they have more reasonable ways of treating these cars.
    Yeah, I am aware of that. It's like that everywhere. At least Your Caddy is less complicated to service than current Cadillacs so You can avoid visits at official repair shops.

    Yes that's true unfortunately. GM/Cadillac completely neglect markets other than U.S; China, Russia and Middle East.
    That's ridiculous because popularity of car brands in those markets is seriously affected by European buying habits.
    From what I see on the basis of Cadillac Russia FB, it's not that hard to open a few good-looking sales/service spots and organise a few events for potential/current customers. There was even a U.S. trip organised by Cadillac Russia Club. Your compatriots even visited GM headquarters and talked to Don Butler.
