  1. Catastrophic maggie failure

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Well, low and behold. A day after I was bragging about how well the car was running... Driving in stop and go traffic, I hear a click then a progressively loud thud thud. So loud I'm thinking to myself it's a loose rod, maybe a lifter went. Manage to get the car home. Oddly the thump/thud is...

  3. An old dog found his way home.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I bought back the first car I was handed down, when I turned 16. My dad bought the car around 1997, when a local gas station that sold cars, was selling the land. They auctioned off all of the cars, and my dad was the only one to bid on this 1983 DeVille. He just bid on it for fun, and...
  4. Need help!!!!

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I currently own a 05 Nissan Maxima loaded out with every option and I have been eyeballing a 05 black CTS with every option minus navigation. My Maxima has 60k miles on it and the CTS has 63k miles on it. My question is would anyone recommend trading into the CTS or keep the Maxima? My Maxima...
  5. Introduction from new Catera owner

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Hi Everybody, I've been on here reading up on Cateras and then recently picked up a couple so I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm in the Seattle area and my regular job is race car fabrication. I've been looking for an interesting project car for a while, and I've always been a fan of...
  6. It's a lot more fun to drive a slow car fast ....

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Rick's comment "It's a lot more fun to drive a slow car fast, than a fast car slow" has alot of merit. I certainly have enjoyed driving some slow, but with stick shift, cars fast. I can't say the same for fast, stick shift cars. My 1983 Scirocco didn't have a very high terminal velocity but with...
  7. Just another Proud V Owner

    Cadillac XLR-V Series Forum
    I have been trying to hold off with this till the Chicago V meet in August, but I just can't resist anymore. I pulled into a gas station on my way to Chicago last weekend and pulled way up past the pumps cause I saw an STS-V just on the other side of the same pumps. As I get out, I notice the...
  8. Do you own an STS-V and live in Maryland?

    Cadillac STS-V Series Forum
    Last night I was driving home from Delaware to Baltimore on I95. But there was a 1 hour bumper to bumper backup, so I set my GPS to take me home off the highway. While following the GPS I made a wrong turn so I had to turn around. I pulled into a totally random driveway, and parked right in...
  9. Finally had some fun this morning

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    :burn: Finally through the break-in period... Heading into work early morning with empty road encountered riced out Nissan Sentra SE-R, you know, the one with the coffee can exhaust (I know, I know...not worth the effort, but since I just passed my break in miles, thought I'd play). He floors it...
  10. Working on high mileage cars are fun!

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    My magnaflow exhaust arrived, and I was giddy to install it before work today. With 177k on the clock, I knew it was going to be fun! I ended up snapping a stud on each cat, so it leaks at that connection. Hopefully I can find some replacements quick because I would like to enjoy my purchase...
  11. What did you do for fun today ?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    For my interesting noon hour I tried to remove the first joint of my left ring finger. Opened the engine box on the boat, rolled it over for oil pressure, turned on the fuel line petcock, hit the choke and brought it to a fast idle. Checking the hoses and oil filter for warmth. For one stupid...
  12. Fun little CO track/meet day!

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Well it was great to meet you Tweeter and Unsafe. Very awesome V's. Sadly I don't have any videos but hopefully Tweeter will upload videos of them racing around HPR. Colorado/surrounding states we need more meets and cruises this summer! Lets try to organize some events!
  13. Got the codes now the fun begins!

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Thanks for all your help in pulling the codes. 2002 DTS w/95K Miles on it. There were lots of codes - 25 or so - but only a half dozen that were current. So I cleared them all and drove the car about 20 miles...just got home and pulled codes again: The one that bothers me is U1016 "lost...
  14. Got bored and threw a front OEM ZR1 wheel on my V today just for fun

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    For those wondering on fitment, no dice. Visually, the offset reveals about 1" sticking out of the fender (without tire), and inner wheel lip is extremely close to the upper control arm (tire would probably hit). Caliper is pretty far back fron the spokes too. Shame, cause I love the look. Was...
  15. The Awesome Roo and Matt themed Florida Meet

    Southeast
    Okay, so we're looking at doing a big meet in FL. I mean, sure, a get together is nice and all that, but we want to do some good stuff too. :) I'm thinking sometime in July is good (summer and such). We can do a fun cruise on the beach, get some food at an outdoor type place and maybe find a...
  16. Just for fun

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Watch this video. It is very interesting: Warning - it has bothing to do with Cadillac.
  17. What a fun car this has been!

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Coming up on the 6th birthday of my trusty 2004 V.......and after much consternation, I've decided to replace it. BUT, only with a 2010 CTS-V. After lurking for a while on the 2009+ forum, it seems that they have the few kinks ironed out of the V2, and the comments from others who have sold...
  18. Headers Fun!!

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I think everyone that has installed headers on the CTS-V and tell all of us that it is the best mod to do are sitting back ROTFL!!!!!!! This is a nightmare!! I would rather put a maggie on again. Driver side was easy, maybe 2 hours. Passenger side is hell!!!! My tuner said he would more than...
  19. Anyone else test drive cars for fun?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    It's something I used to do from time to time....just find a nice car on carsoup or autotrader and test drive it just to see what it drove like. I haven't done it since buying the GS, and now I kinda wanna get back into it again, but I always feel worse about my car after doing so.. I'm not in...
  20. Photo Shop Fun

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
