    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    This topic has probably been hashed to death, but as a new member, I've got questions. I've had 2 White Denali's since 2001, and a Red Suburban prior. White seemed to be clean looking at all times, except when muddied. My new '07 is Black, and I'm getting frustrated trying to keep it...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    I detailed a Gallardo yesterday (yes I got to drive it) it was black and the owner complained about how their were swirls in the paint already.

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Just got my '93 Eldorado out of the shop for a problem with rough idle that ocaisionally ended in a stall, usually at the worst time, in traffic. It seems that there was some carbon build-up on the intake throat and valves that had a tendency to "sponge" (absorb) enough fuel to fool the sensor...
