cambodian tire never seems to have anything for my car around here, i tried to get side marker lights when they burn't out and they never had them, they also never had an oil filter or a transmission filter. I'll try again, is the connection for the bulb only in caddy or is the socket type the same in more gm vehicles?
i'd go led but the question is WHERE DO I GET THEM?

Well you can order them online of course. Or you can try Auto Source or Princess Auto (both in St. James dont know where any other ones are) those places have a better selection and could quite possibly have LED lights too. The socket connection is a generic gm parts bin type so its not caddy only. Not sure if the manual has the parts number cause you can usually find bulbs that will meet that socket type and work in the car.

The oil filters for our car wont be anywhere in Winnipeg youll have to pretty much order them online or from a gm dealership.

Kind of a side question but do you have your DRL's off already or do you run with them on? Just wondering if you have had an issues with the po-po in the city stopping you?

thanks, i will try those. atleast if i know the socket goes beyond caddy i can tell thet to the auto parts guys, they can't seem to find anything without a parts number or a model.
ya i have my drl's disabled, no problems with the police, i can always turn on my fogs if i'm feeling the pressure. before i had the clears i had my drl's tinted really dark, still never had a problem with police, my side markers are virtually blacked out too.

It is not illegal to have no DRL. Alot of makers have them implemented, but it is not illegal.

If you want LED info, you can do a quick search to find it out.

$10 for my turn signals. Sylvania Silverstars, they look like purple/blue when not lit... depends how light is reflecting. I like them alot.

Disabling DRLs does not disable the turn signals. FYI
