  1. As my Caddy was up for its 36mile service I decided to point out to Stratstone in Birmingham the corrosion that I had found on three of the four wheels. This was certainly something that should be covered by the 3-year/60k mile warranty... or so I thought. I spoke to the Service Manager and was told the corrosion was from stone chips! Gonads. I pointed out that the majority of the corrosion was spanning out from the inner hub. The reason for my post is that the Service Manager told me that the importer had gone into receivership and as such he couldn't get replacements. Has anyone heard of this? He told me that he would contact me three weeks later when the Cadillac Claims Manager was visiting the service centre, to get approval to get the wheels refinished (although he said I woud have to pay for one of them as I had a slight scrub on it from catching a kerb). Well, that was over six weeks ago now and I still have not heard anything. To top it all, the driver seat lumbar support just went 'ping' when I was pulling away from my house. I am still well within warranty, but the service is so attrocious at the Stratstone garage, I'm put off from making a claim. Maybe that is what the Service Manager was hoping for... Has anyone else had problems with making warranty claims through Stratstone in Birmingham? If so, how have you overcome them without going to arbitration or a solicitor? I could really do with some advice here... .. .
  2. Bluetooth into BLS Caddy

    OK... I guess I should update you by letting you know how this 'problem' was resolved. After a lot of searching on the Net, I did manage to find the pin-outs for the head unit and even some instructions that looked to have a chance of working... but... I called the Parrot helpline and arranged to have the kit fitted by them. Good job as well. It took one of their most experienced fitters almost three hours to fit it. Crazy, I know, but none of the expected solutions looked to work on further investigation. The cd-unit, is an amplified set-up using Saab kit but none of the wiring had the connections expected (supposed to be Saab wiring loom for the bluetooth but not. I think the best advice I could give anyone looking to fit a car kit to a BLS is to have it installed professionally by people who have a variety of adaptors and a decent warranty.
  3. I purchased a 57 plate BLS 1.9d Luxury recently and am looking to fit a bluetooth kit that came with my work mobile. The main problem I have is that I'm finding it almost impossible to find any info on the head unit. Its a single CD/MP3 unit with aux-in that looks to be very similar to the six-CD Delphi Delco (GM pt. no. 15909952) and it is linked to a Saab amplifier fitted in the laft-hand-side boot (trunk) cavity. Does anyone have info on this head unit, a pin-out for the connections (specifically for line-in and mute) or even fitting istructions? The bluetooth kit I have is a Parrot CK3100 LCD and although Parrott have a pin-out on their site for the BLS, it doesn't identify the head unit model or pins for the line in and mute, although the diagrams show they are there. It also states the diagrams are for non-amplified systems, and I understand the only two types of sound system installed in BLSs are an amplified Bose system and another. As mine is not a Bose system I presume it is the other.Which is also amplified. I'm confused. Help!! Anyone?
