Thanks yeah i prefer it well over the 370. If they put the 3.7 and the new interior in the 350z body id trade in in a heartbeat. I thought about trading up but id rather just mod the hell out of mine and love the way it looks.

Any thoughts on the revised 2010 Cad SRX?
post #93 of 1112
the problem with caddy is the fit,finish and materials are an insult for what they cost imo.

you can run a cts up to $55,000. i think that is absurd. of course then they discount it $20k. i like the way they look but they just feel cheap. look at the fuzzy carpet in the trunk. in cars for that price i do think the details matter.

an acura,lexus,bmw,mb,audi etc. is more car for your money in my opinion.

however, the gmc suv's are nicer than caddys i think. i do kind of like the gmc's.

If I had the money I would trade my 370Z for a CTS w/ the Vette engine in a heartbeat!

oh yeah the one with the supercharged z06 engine! that one is ok lol. who cares if it blows it's own doors off then haha. really it is a bargain too. the zr1 is way more money and can't take your family to dinner!

Some lovely cars here.

The MGB is stunning. During the summer I helped a mechanic recover a 1965(?) MGB in red. It had only emerged from the barn about once a year and was in really nice condition. The owner asked me would I consider buying it but sadly there is no wa I could afford that.

I get around in a 1991 Land Rover Defender. It is cold, leaky and slow but I'm strangely attached to it.

Haha most people would! The CTS-V is a huge step up from a 370Z in pretty much all categories in my opinion.

Oh yeah definitely. To be honest, I didn't know the first iteration of the CTS-V even existed before the current one came out and got rave reviews from everyone.

I actually just bought one. Mazda 3 SGT in graphite with far too many bells and whistles. Seeing as I was driving a 2000 Protege up until now, it's pretty fun.

shopping cart into my 2010 s65 it does not matter if you got a new kia though. in a few months someone will spoil your party! i know no one will have pitty for me i don't expect any. a car is only new untill the minute you drive it off the showroom floor, i know this.

took it to a high end bodyshop. they said they'd pull the dent and paint the entire door. the guy said "honestly this car will be worth a lot less with that much bodywork than it will be with the dent!". so thats that. the first of many to come! enjoy the ride!

How fast was the cart going to cause enough damage to require "that much bodywork"?? I've had my car get hit by a cart but it's never caused more damage then what a little PDR could fix (If I could be bothered to get it done, which I can't ).
post #104 of 1112
is there a diy pdr?

i could try "dent busters". body shops always want to do what will make them the most money. at least this guy was honest. the dent is maybe 1/25" deep and 1/8" wide. indeed i drive the "anal" folks car and i guess i am being that way.

As long as the impact didn't break the clear coat, a good body shop should be able to just pull the dent out. Not sure what the damage would be for a Merc but for most cars I'd assume around $100-150. It's worth it for a new car, on a ten year old car like mine, not so much.
