Super excited! Some of you will remember my story from a while back...quick recap: I bought my V on Mar 24th, was hit on Mar 26th, went into the body shop on Mar 28th...several delays, hassles, and apologies later, I'm finally pickin' her up tonight! Yeehaw! Goodbye 108 hp rental, hello 400 hp Caddy!!! BTW, I'll post pics before and after, and give feedback on the body shop for those of you in the SoCal/LA area. Thanks for letting me vent! :thumbsup:

OMG, I would probably go insane. 3 weeks was bad enough driving a normal CTS.

Congrats dude, glad to hear you're getting it back !

Yeah, when I had my engine replaced I had a 2.8L CTS loaner- Got back in my V after 3 weeks in the loaner and almost killed myself.

It's amazing how quickly your foot gets trained.

trudat! my rear is now bigger and wider! It was done by a vigorous and potent weightlifter that I met on this forum, who hammered at it mercilessly without any protection other than a welders mask. He had me lift my rear in the air so he could get at all the nooks and crannies...he probed me with his tool of destruction and lo and behold, my rear is done.

Vigerous and potent weightlifter, lol. You get to drive it yet?

I hated not having the car for 1 day. (I've gone longer) There is just a sense of relief.

Doug has driven it countless times....says its time for new rubber. He says it just plants and goes, no hop, no wiggle, just squat, plant, burn.

Sick! It might've been worth the wait if new toys were being installed...anyhow, Got'er back last night! It's slightly bittersweet at the moment. Car is still a blast to drive, BUT...it has to go back. I knew that Redline would be a bia*%& to match, but still hoped for the best. Well, their best wasn't good enough. The bumpers are a hue too bright. Nonetheless, it'll be fixed. May just have to go another day or two without her.

Better to get her done right the first time. Atleast you can enjoy for the weekend. Post pics when you get her back finally.
