Adjusted tire pressure down 1 psi front and rear. Drove to/from work, ran a few errands - post office, pharmacy, FedEx to ship an old tire we sold, etc etc. Went WOT in 2nd gear a few times to test grip of new tires. Washed and dry when I got home from work, went over car with instant detail spray - it's been a while and it was nasty. Thought about where to mount my camera to capture the rear wheel(s) while WOT in 2nd gear to monitor for tire slip/loss of traction.
Went in garage later tonight just to admire the OBM paint and the cool velvet textured rubber side lettering on the Sport Cup 2's sidewall. Its just SO cool looking. Now I don't even like to put on tire dressing as it covers up the cool effect.
Installed my SRP gas pedal with spacers for easier heel/toe, removed the front bumper for LED DRL's, installed my C/F wrapped trim.
Plastidipped the grills, fog buckets and shrouds, purchased replacement fasteners for ones missing/broken. Bought a foglight HID kit as well.
Next up is: repairing the bi-xenon solenoid wire (mine broke inside the headlight), light pipe LED swap, blackhousing headlights, LED signals, D1S bulb swap, clearcoating the pitted fog lenses, installing the mirrormount & door cup clearbra.

Belt is on
Fuse is good
I did just disconnect the battery and reconnect, I dont know why but figured it couldnt hurt
Has anyone successfully read Ethanol % using Torque Pro? It is not working for me. I read some post in another thread that says that "Flex Diagnostics" need to be enabled in the tune. Any ideas? Anyone know the PID number?
I just wanted to post this as this seems to come up often and the answers are usually about does it fit in the wheel well. But the real answer is stock rims are 9.5 (sedan) and a 295 is the largest tire that fit the rim.
If you want larger than 295 you need larger rims, then rim size, offset...
Hello fellas, and gals...new to the site and Vs too. Looking forward to my first V in the very near future.
Ive run across a silver 2011 coupe im very interested in, but im a little leary about it. First off, the owner claims to be out of the country . Second, he claims the car was his recently...
Hey guys, I've been leaking here for a bit, and I've been eyeing 07 CTS-Vs, but it seems as though 2nd gen Vs are slipping into my price range. I initially never considered it (wife will be driving this car fairly frequently, and she's not exactly down with close to 600hp), but I've done some...
