hmmm...raises the curiosity level a few notches...70eldo said:Also did some work there illegally (well, i was apparently not the only one).
so what did you find? where did the limiter kick in?70eldo said:The Autobahn is a driver's paradise... I actually get the chance to test the CTS to its own speed limit.
Ok, atfer my study (actually, thesis for my Polytechnic at a California company) I went back to California to work there, using my contacts I made at that company. It didn't work out the way I planned, but it was a hell of a life experience, including doing work for $7 an hour and sleeping on the bare carpet for 2 months. Just what I needed, because I was accepted at the flight academy and i wanted to get some more life experience before I would step into e serious life as an airliner pilot. So, in that I succeeded. But I had no green card, so it was not legal...TripleOught said:hmmm...raises the curiosity level a few notches...
I had it tick twice at 250 kmh (155Mph) in the beginning. But since it was serviced for the faulty AC compressor it ticks at 240. Have to say it still handles very good. Better than my 70eldo which also can go over 130Mph but starts acting very instable at those speeds.TripleOught said:so what did you find? where did the limiter kick in?
Love aerospace also..and if it wasn't for this law thing I would be an airline pilot myself...still have my FAA ratings though....couple of my buddies are ATPs...I stayed in the aviation game though (former in house attorney for largest US aerospace insurer, firm used to represent Airbus here in the states...currently represent P&W jet engines, helicopter manufacturers and aviation component parts manufacturers)70eldo said:Anyways, I am a technical design engineer and I love aerospace. In fact, I was almost an airliner pilot for KLM.
Welcome...and the best looking sill I've seen is the one DubbedStealth has on his CTS. Here is a pic of the front. He used the sills that are on the STS...Check out his page on cardomain and you'll see the ones for the rear....He is linked to my page on cardomain also, as well as SDMarineguy and some other forum members...you can get some ideas of what we've done...West Coast style....lolrm2077 said:I am looking for a good quality door sill in a brushed finish to avoid scratching with logo if possible. Anyone who could give me some good links for any accessories would be appreciated.
Where in So Florida? I'm in Cape Coral (Fort Myers).rm2077 said:I am a new member and a new CTS owner. I have lived in S Florida all my life. Took deliver on Friday before Wilma hit us direct. I parked the CTS between my other car and truck hoping to keep it safe. A six foot tree was sticking through the other car when I walked out after the storm. Unfortunately my 3 day old car now has paint chips from the broken glass flying from the other car in a few spots.
I bought the car for my wife as we both just fell in love with the CTS. Cadillac has found the perfect balance between performance and comfort with this one. I bought it for her but I manage to pry it away a few days a week.
Now I just need to start adding some personal touches. I am looking for a good quality door sill in a brushed finish to avoid scratching with logo if possible. Anyone who could give me some good links for any accessories would be appreciated. I am just starting to research my options and do not know many reliable companies to deal with.
