Well, I always wanted a V (or a 650I Convertible).....so tonight I picked up a 2007 V, and all I have to say is WOW. This car is AWESOME!! I am very happy with my purchase, and it's ONLY been 4 hours since I have owned it.

Its a 2007, has 27k miles on it, bought it for $29K....infrared in color, light cashmere/dark gray interior, and all the options they came with - moonroof, navi, leather, memory seats, DVD, XM, On*Star.....I love it!!!!!!!!!!!! I purely love this car!!!!

Are there any concerns I should have with this car, or preparations to make so things don't wear out faster on it? I've heard about the rear diff bushing and the seemingly infamous 'clunk' noise....is there anything I can do to help alleviate that from happening?

Thanks for any advice and help. I am new to this forum, but am looking to be here for a looooooooooong time.

Welcome, Chris! Congrats on the new ride, too!

Now, go out there and get CAGS eliminator and a shifter. These are as necessary as fuel in the tank will make you even happier than you are.

Welcome

Memorize the FAQ almost every answer is on there.

Then come back to the forum and every answer that wasn't on the faq is in the depths of this place, so use the search or use a combo google search with this forum as the domain.

Besides that if you are married open a secret account that the wife doesn't know about and start mod hell. Enjoy.

Thanks for the welcome.

I like the secret account....I'm not married yet, but will be in 4 months. I'm not new into modding trucks, but this is my 1st car in over 15 years. I've only had one other car that I drove in the early 90s and THAT was NOT worth modding. LOL

I'll check out those FAQs and those other sites.

Thanks again.

If you think you're in love now, but a blower on it and see what happens! I was actually accused of loving my car more than my girl. Of course I lied and told her no but, my baby and I know the truth. lol

F the CAGS and get a Wait4Me PCM. For $160 bucks he'll open up that extra hp AND disable the skip shift. Not to mention you'll have an extra PCM.

Oh yeah and...:welcome: to the forum.
