  1. I hope this feature is locked out when the vehicle is in motion or at a least some form of disclaimer that the passenger is interfacing with the system; this is entirely too intensive to be doing while driving. Also, where are they getting this gasoline for a buck and a half.
  2. Panamera Turbo or CTS-V?

    Even if money were no object, and even the CTS-V is too high of an admission price for my household, the differences between the two vehicles (except performance) is a no-brainer. Personally I don't like the looks of the Panamera so the Caddy gets my immediate vote, secondly I lean toward domestic. If I wanted a Porsche I think I would stay with one of their two-seaters (keeping it pure sports-car performance); with the CTS-V, I get a sedan, but one that 'cooks' as very few can. These, just some random thoughts. And as to my prejudice towards domestic, I'd be having a Corvette anyway.
  3. Cadillac CT6 @ 119 mph in a 65 mph zone

    So, I don't know; CRUISE CONTROL. Sounds like a lot of garbage to me (her reasoning). I wonder how'd she rule on a speeder (in her court). p.s. kudos (to the car)
  4. CT6 - 4 Ways to Enjoy it

    Silver, my second choice.......................................nice ride Bruce. Classic styling IMO too. I think it (the styling) will age well.
  5. CT6 - 4 Ways to Enjoy it

    My 'flavor' would be the 3.6 (LGX) in the Luxury Premium; I know, kind of middle of the pack but the fuel usage would be good, the equipment almost top of the line and the price high but not stratospheric. Oh, and probably in white/pearl and the lightest interior color available.
  6. Cadillac lagged across the board (for September) with XT5 the only bright spot. New stuff is coming but it just isn't coming soon enough. The Luxury segment is very dynamic; Cadillac seems to be a little 'spurty' (great stuff then they tend to let is stagnate a bit. The "V's" were/are terrific but not much new and they are giving the competition the chance to catch up and exceed in some cases. JMO
  7. Sunday morning dew...

    Photobucket has gone from free photo hosting to charging 39.99/month; naturally a lot of users have forgone that expense (and thus are now getting that message).
  8. If you are looking for a dash cover, here's a link:
  9. There is a new Buick Regal GS coming out for '18; it is to have the HF (high feature) 3.6 L that is in the XT5. The Buick will also have a nine speed tranny; I can't see the Cadillac with less. The non-GS '18 Regal will have a four, so maybe the Caddy with also offer both (or maybe more) depending on trim level. Link on the new Buick:
  10. Johan D. announced that at the next model cycle, '19, that the XTS, CTS and ATS will yield to a new vehicle, called the CT4. And subsequently a new smaller sedan, I'm guessing CT2 or CT3 will be introduced. The alphabet soup sure is getting confusing.
  11. Johann has specifically denied that the CT6 is on the chopping block; I don't know if he was as candid for the XTS.
  12. 31 Cadillac V-16 Roadster

    I built one of these (in plastic) when I was a kid; never forgot how cool it was/is.
  13. Oil filter suppressor?

    Pretty slick; thanks for sharing that Bruce.
  14. Costco gas is toptier so that shouldn't have been your problem. Sometimes a nice highway stint will clear a 'stop and go run' vehicle of a lazy 'cat'.
  15. Your a/c compressor (clutch) is unengaged when the engine is off so you are not going to see that pulley locked-up with engine-off/belt off if you have an internally broken compressor. Do you recall whether the a/c produced cold air when you were running your test (and you were getting the squeaking belt scenario). Just some random thoughts; good luck with your repair.
