  1. New Toy

    Has anybody heard or used this Bell Vector FX1 gadget? It is supposed to give you your 1/4 mile times and 0-60 times and plugs into your lighter???
  2. Cigarette Lighter (Radar Detector)

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I saw the post on hardwiring your radar (looks really cool), but I have a quick question. Do most people leave their radar detector on if they don't hardwire it when they shut the car off. I highly doubt it would kill the battery if it was left on for a day or two, but I was just curious.

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    This is a general question but pointed more toward member "tomm" as i saw this on his website. Has anyone had any experience with this system? I have an opportunity through my company to pick up the Zr3 package at a VERY low cost but am wondering about its effectiveness. Can any new yorkers...
  4. Killing the Zeta

    Open Letters to Cadillac Corporate
    This is not directed at Cadillac executives, so to say, but more at GM top brass as a way to vent a little anger. So you've killed the Zeta. Now what. You plan on building new trucks instead? Wow, I'm so incredibly thrilled! First of all, you do not need to be trashing a great idea for a stupid...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion

  8. CTS vs F150

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Yesterday, while sitting in a left turn lane waiting for the car in front of me to proceed after the light turned green, I get rear ended by an F150. I had a 28 year old female passenger and neither of us was injured. The F150 appeared to sustained more damage. Progressive, the insurance...

  13. Mustand Gt...HA!

    Cadillac Dragstrip Stories and Track Videos
    After I spent the day detailing my baby, I decided to take it out on the freeway and give it a run. There was a red Mustang GT on my tail for about a mile, then we had to slow down for a stalled big rig. Since it seemed all the cops were stuck there on traffic detail I decided to open her up...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    This is my first post on the CTS site, so bear with me! I've seen the recent post regarding the Escort 8500, and thought some may want to consider the installation I've done, using the Passport SRX. Two sensors are located behind the front grill and a third sensor is mounted on the rear...

  17. What is it with guys?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I have to admit that not everyone likes lowriders but come on. Today I had this guy come up to me and tell me that my cadi's ugly. It's still pretty much stock except for the rims and castle grille I just had put in. But my car is dents, no dings, no chipped paint. Overall I would...
