    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    This happend in the winter and the car was cold, i didn´t wait for the front windshield to warm upp and it was fogy. Somone left that benz 190 on the side and i crashed into it :( but it was easy repair. I bought some replasement parts like fender and bumper and the front lights, but i think...
  2. Fingers crossed everyone....picking up the Brougham after work.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Okay, So in follow up to my earlier post about the slugfest that is my Brougham going up a's at the shop for a full tune up today. The mechanic took it for a drive up and down the escarpment access and said it was misfiring at lock-up, whatever that (lockup) means. I know I was...
  3. V-Series Performance Academy or V-Series Performance Lab?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Because the V-Series Performance Academy on my chosen date is full, Cadillac is offering to allow me to attend the V-Series Performance Lab on the next day. Does anybody know what the difference is between the "Academy" and the "Lab"? The webpages look identical...
  4. Want to upgrade exhaust

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Looking to upgrade my 09's exhaust. While I'm at it "thinking" adding headers and modified (sufficient enough to get me thru inspection) cats too. There's a lower pulley upgrade in the future. :yup: Knowing the Corsa's have low drone technology, having used a set on my 03 C5 Coupe, at idle I...
  5. Should I wait for a 2011 SRX?

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    With the addition of the free maintenance, the key fob auto unlock of doors, controlling your vehicle from your smartphone and all the problems the 2010s are having, would I be better off just getting a 2011 luxury instead of a 2010 premium? I'm sure 2011 will have issues, but the horror...
  6. wait... my warranty doesnt cover WHAT?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Just got the call from the dealership. My loose steering is a worn out steering gear. And they say that the CPO warranty doesn't cover that. Also, my nav won't keep correct time. They say the whole unit needs to be replace to the tune of 1200 dollars. What's the point of a warranty that...
  7. For those who factory ordered a V Sedan (2009 or 10), how long was the wait?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Just trying to get an idea of how long I may be waiting - I ordered last week. White Diamond, manual tranny, recarro's, polished wheels. I'm assuming the dealer I ordered from has allocation, based on what they told me. They are estimating end of August... does this sound about right? Thanks

  9. Worth the wait.

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I just got my car back about a week ago and I must say it is very impressive. I originally had a lingenfelter pulley upgrade with a ported supercharger snout and mail order tune installed on my car and I thought the car was fast. After a while I became used to the power so about two months ago...

    Well, that's it. I've finally made my decision and after ten years of driving BMW coupes and sedans, I've put a deposit down on a Raven Black CTS-V, sunroof, Recaros, polished wheels, sueded steering wheel and shift knob.

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I tried to start my car as usual. I put my key in and turned the ignition on and nothing happened. A message flashed and said wait 3 minutes to start. I did and again the same thing happened. Help. I need to get my car started.

  14. The Wait For Cadillac Parts

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    My engine light came on and the dealer figured out the code and he said that I needed a new timing chain which he didn't have so he ordered it. That was almost 3 weeks ago and it still is not in. My question is, is anyone experiencing an abnormally wait for parts?

  16. Starting disabled, wait 3 minutes, etc.

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Just a helpful hint. If your Caddy doesn't do anything on the first couple of turns of the ignition key but then starts fine, then a few days later you get the message "STARTING DISABLED", "WAIT 3 MINUTES", don't panic. The first thing to try is your spare key. This happened to me a week...
  17. Zaino new car? Or wait a year?

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    I just got a new 09 CTS in Diamond White Tricoat. I bought Zaino the same day I bought the car, but a friend of mine said his dealer (BMW) told him not to do anything to the finish. The clearcoat is apparently the best protection for the first year. I know WAX should not be used, but Zaino...
  18. Wait for me performance- buyer beware

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    WFM or ANY vendor-proceed with caution In my humble opinion we should all be careful of any promises made by any tuner or vendor on this forum regarding any tune, part or promise of performance and good customer service - I have a CEL on again after being assured by WFM performance to take a...
