One and a half months ago I purchased an 86 Cimarron and have it pretty well fixed up. When I purchased it the AC was not working and the power windows didn't either. After a month I have the windows working again and the AC is blowing at 46* at the vents.Well to make a long story short..... I haven't driven my STS in a month now since I got behind the wheel of the Cimarron. Wow that 2.8 L V6 is pretty peppy and it has a certain throaty sound..... Ilike it. Man this cars runs extremely well for a 25 year old car.......WATCH OUT STS....LOL.
Really :cloud9: Caddyfat2

It was not R-12 because of the cost but I re-charged it with ES-12a which is a new gas type freon. Check out this gas at autorefrigerants.com and tell me what you think? ( it's as cold as R-12 for sure and much better than R134a)

Hey I am an STS owner too but thought I would just throw a little different curve into our forums. Excuse me if I offended you talking about my lowly Cimarron but like I said if you don't like it don't read it. Now lighten up, relax and don't get your bowels in an uproar over a thread that didn't hurt anything thing or anyone ! LOL

You own a Cadillac. It is a nicely styled luxury car. There is a reason why Cadillac chose not to put on plastic chrome door handle covers, plastic chrome door pillar posts, and ghetto chrome hoodrich wheels. They have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on marketing research to figure out what looks "Classy" and defines Cadillac. After all their R&D, they found that the majority of people (and what is best for the brand,) was SUBTLE chrome accents across the window sills, and in the later year STS' across the bottom of the rocker panel and top of the rear bumper. These were classy modifications. The huge chrome door pillar posts look cheesy, as do aftermarket chrome wheels. The wheels Cadillac chose to offer on these cars, and accessory wheels, look great. 99% of people would agree with the fact that most factory wheels fit this car perfectly. Again, that is due to countless hours of research and design.

Did you know why Brembo calipers are usually red, or an offset color? Because THEY ARE BIG BRAKES. They DESERVE to stand out. They call attention to the fact that you have six piston calipers. Painting tiny little single or dual piston V6 calipers looks foolish. If you like the look of Big Brembo Brakes, get big brembo brakes. Dont get plastic ebay covers that are going to warp and block airflow, that also look fake. This is why I had to laugh.

Also, don't put up a post about your tasteless modifications if you cant handle the negative remarks from other members, who may have a better idea of how things look than yourself. Thanks!

Not my cup of tea, but it's not my car.

Maybe it's just the perspective of those pictures or the wide-angle lens... It reminds me of an old George Carlin bit, "White boys got no ass!"
