  3. Interior Trim Kits?

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    I really like my new SRX, and think it looks great. I have the black exterior with the black/gray interior. It looks sharp... One question, I really do not like the wood grain accents on the doors? (why they added this is beyond me). Would like to continue with the brushed chrome, or a...

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Hi All, Recently purchased a 2000 Catera with low miles (45K) confirmed by CarFax. While it had the timing belt campaign performed on it in 2002, I'm going to replace the belt, tensioner, the two idlers and the water pump. The local Saturn store is doing the work, even though I've told them...

  14. Easy Question: Volant Intake on an 07'

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Is it possible? I don't see a Volant intake listed anywhere specifically for the 06-07 model years, which leads me to believe that the 04-05 version will not be a direct bolt-on because of the different throttle body sizes. Can anyone lend some insight on that? Also, does anyone know if there...
