  1. 2009 STS N* RWD 1SE w/HID?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    I keep getting asked. I keep saying no. However, since my used car saleman seemed to indicate otherwise, I have to ask. Do these headlights move? That is, do they follow turning? Headlights: TT6 - HEADLAMPS, HIGH INTENSITY DISCHARGE W/WASHERS TQ5 - HEADLAMPS, INTELLIBEAM-HIGH BEAM CONTROL...
  2. New Mercedes S63 AMG---- A FORCE TO RECKON WITH ?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Just noticed the new 2011 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG(sedan) is sporting a new 5.5 liter bi-turbo V-8 that is available with either 544 HP & 590 ft-lb of torque OR 571 HP & 664 ft-lb of torque! Sounds like it could spell trouble for the unmodded V's out there?
  3. The Wall Street Journal on the CTS-V Coupe: "It makes German rivals look like taxis"

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    The Wall Street Journal on the CTS-V Coupe: "It makes German rivals look like taxis" Leave it to the WSJ to provide an eloquent rejoinder to C&D and Motor Trend's CTS-V vs. M3 vs. RS 5 comparison with a review that highlights all the awesomeness and swagger of the V...
  4. Newbie here...I have a few questions

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    New member here so hello to everyone, I'm researching a 06-07 STS and have a few questions. First off I'm coming from an Infiniti G35 and having had nothing but sports cars in the past I am really getting tired of the constant jittery ride. My question here is does the V8 model and V6 model...
  5. how many of you have Vs without a sunroof?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I've just found out that "sunroof delete" is an option.
  6. The end of the DTS?

    Cadillac DTS Forum - 2006 through 2012
    I have always loved Cadillacs. The first time I rode in one back as a child and I felt the plush leather seats and the smooth powerful drive, I was hooked! The only other car that came close was the Towncar. I was reading that they have stopped making the DTS and their new flagship car is a V6...
  7. Why are the rotors replaced also whenever the front brake pads are replaced?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    My dealer explained but I did not understand well. Can anybody explain plainly?
  8. 93 STS hesitation at lower RPM's

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I have a 1993 STS with 153k on it. 4.6 NS. I am having a hesitation while driving at lower rpm's. Anywhere from 1500 which is rare to usually around 2k r's. I have tried to nail it down, and best I can tell, it is when accelerating and then taking the foot off the gas, coasting downhill and then...
  9. 2003 CTS, 3.2 engine, oil filter housing removal

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Housing gasket is leaking. Removed two bolts which mount housing to block. Appears to be a third which may go through to the block, if so it would require a large allen or torx wrench to remove. Don't want to do anything unnecssarily, but after removing the two bolts it does not want to let...
  10. Adding insult to injury: Motor Trend picks M3 & RS5 over V Coupe

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I'm sure this was mentioned in the other thread, I thought I'd mention it for those not keeping up with that thread. I don't see the article on line yet, but just got the hard copy in the mail. Main knock on the V is the crappy auto trans. V out accelerates and brakes the others. But, came in...
  11. CTS 2008 3.6L Luxury, I need your help on navigation system

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Hello, I live in Belgium (Europe) and I have a 2008 Cadillac CTS 3.6L bought here in Europe. I am a diplomat and due to a new assignment, I will ship my car to Central America in September 2010. But I have some concerns about the navigation system of the car, these are the following: 1) Are US...
  12. Fleet maneuvers

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Had a little extra time this afternoon when I went to get the ETC, and since I now have a halfway decent camera in my phone, I thought I'd take a few pics of part of the fleet: And while not with the rest of them, here is the white RMW at an I-44 rest area after walking Beretta. Am...
  13. Behind the wheel of Cadillac's flagship

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Parked conspicuously at GM's Milford proving grounds during a visit there a few weeks ago, the Fleetwood looks dignified. Its sheet metal could easily be described as edgy though boasts nothing that could be called daring, but its anonymity is at best discreetly handsome and at worst not in the...

  15. I Think I Might Have A Problem... Bought Another Jeep

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I simply couldn't help myself... It was just one of those moments. I had been keeping a vague eye out for an old Cherokee and actually overlooked this one for a couple of weeks. Glad I finally stopped to really check it out. Snapped a couple pics on the ride home. 1993 Grand Cherokee Laredo...
  16. Hood Ornament Tale

    Cadillac DTS Forum - 2006 through 2012
    My confusion is now complete! OK guys I read all the hood ornament threads I could stomach and now I've got to bother you for some help. I have a black on black 2007 DTS Luxury II. I wanted a hood ornament and my wife when to the local Caddy dealer Parts department (the same dealer we bought...
  17. 2011 Infiniti QX56.....say whaaaaat???

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I saw one of these last night at the local Infiniti dealer and had to make a post about it. Big luxury SUV's need hard-edged, square lines to really look good. When Infiniti tries to apply it's swooping curves and lines that work well on the G & M, it doesn't work so well on a 3 ton...
  18. The very worst car you ever owned?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Most of the cars I have owned were rewarding in some form or another, so I don't regret having bought any of them, with one exception. In 1985 the Audi 5000S was the auto press's most highly touted sedan. They couldn't say enough good about the cars. So in a moment of irrationality (I had many...
  19. Cadillac CTS or BMW 328i

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Assuming you are 50 years younger than the average Cadillac driver (aka 25), which would you rather have? My friend is looking at both and I think it'd be out of place for him to get the CTS since he is so young. Discuss.
  20. Look What I Ended-Up With.....It's a Ford, Now What?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Ok I won't get in to the whole story as to why I have ended up with this thing but I can tell you that it is an all original 1979 Ford Thunderbird with a 302 engine & just 26,400 miles on it......I am still not sure what to make of this strange bird in my Cadillac barn. Its going to be for sale...
