As a previous owner of a cadillac ( 94 deville ) I have learned the joys and the not so joys of owning these cars. This site has helped me alot and while the new isnt a 4.9 ( 302k miles ) and isnt as bullet proof ( that 94 wont die) I got tired of not having heat! So I got me a 1998 Cadillac El Dorado with 58K orginal miles as you will see for the pictures its clean!

The good: ITS CLEAN WITH SUPER LOW MILES!!! Newer tires and brakes, bose sounds system all the bells and whistles really. its a retail value at around 6-7k ( i paid less than half )

The not so good: Needs a driver tailight lens ( already bought one off ebay but the guy seen it was cracked so got refund), a passenger back up lamp lens. Refrigerant is low ( i can take care of that on my own ). The one thing that is bugging me ( but i havent looked into yet ) The driver corner lamp was always on and the passenger wasnt. Thought it maybe was sposed to be that way and the pass was blown. Bought new bulb replaced nothing so just disconnected driver side. Now on my 94 the cornering bulb is only on when the turn signal is engaged, so idk not a huge deal that ill figure out eventually ( hopefully )

Much easier said than done. Done properly at a good shop, that'll cost him half what he paid for the car.

The whole car is at the same angle to the camera. The hood and left fender definitely look a whole lot lighter in the picture you deleted.

Not "hate", just an observation.

Im sorry you arent able to comprehend anything more than your eyes see. Your " observation: is a 100% wrong bucko. When your able to photograph pearl white with a camera phone let me know champ

I did. I see a twilight picture of the opposite side of the car, and one of a post it note in someone's leg. Am I missing something?

Your attitude leaves a whole lot to be desired.

Your reading comprehension skills seem to be lacking a bit too. I said the same angle TO the camera, nor AS the camera.

your a moron!
I'll bite my tongue and let the mods take care of that bit of misinformation.

Did you not read post #3?

The link doesn't show the same picture, and the re uploaded image looks exactly the same.

Im sorry you arent able to comprehend anything more than your eyes see.
So what sense would you suggest I use to SEE a picture?? My ears? I guess you're right, I can't hear the different shades of white...

Your " observation: is a 100% wrong bucko.
perhaps you should look up the definition of that word.

Uhh, you point the phone at the car and tap the screen. A camera phone typically has lower resolution than most digital cameras, that in no way makes same color objects appear as a different color.

Casually stating my observation on a color of a fender and being called a moron... Yeah, I'm definitely the one with the attitude issue. Good luck in life.

I'm laughing and being a smart ass cause the car is all the same shade. This genius who has never seen the car seems to know it all!

I wonder why you hate so much

sorry if your feelings are hurt - :crybaby: -

I don't think so -
it sure looks like the entire front clip has been repainted -
does the car have a SALVAGE title?

When your able to photograph pearl white
with a camera phone let me know champ

every MORON knows the color is NOT pearl white -
it is WHITE DIAMOND -

Well there's a lot of sun glare, but below the glare, the lower part of the door still looks darker than the lower part of the fender directly in front of it.

Regardless of any picture you post, Bass and I's comments were based on the one picture that you provided in your first post. In that picture, there is a very obvious color difference. What the car looks like to you in person is completely irrelevant when you're the only one seeing it that way, and everyone else only has a picture to go on.

Not perfect picture still but you can enter your foot into your mouth anytime now. Or are you going to come up with some other line of crap! ROFL :tisk:
=================================
White Diamond IS a difficult color to match PERFECTLY -
the angle it's sprayed will change how the metal flake lays down -
and that changes how light is reflected off the surface -

anyone with an experienced eye
can plainly see the difference in color
between the front clip and door -
even in this pic -

I understand you don't want to believe
your "treasure" isn't quite as good as you thought -

but fact is fact -
it's a 17 year old car that's been hit and repainted - what's the big deal?
it's not a "classic" - and far from a "show car" -
just drive it and enjoy it for what it is -
a low-mileage - 17 year old - used Eldo -
well worth the ~$2500 you paid for it -

----------

Ignorance is bliss my friend
you gotta be one blissfull mofo!
Rock on d bag!

oh - you should knock the hostilities down a notch or two -

even if you don't like the answers/responses you get -
name calling is unacceptable behavior - :tisk:
