The only factory replacement style that's readily available is the air shock. There's 2 parts to it, the shock absorber and the air leveling. You can run them without the air, or run the switch, but I'm guessing that all that's wrong with your leveling system is the ride height sensor, if it wouldn'...

KBB lets you add stuff like that because they know people did it, not because it's necessarily an option. Just like they let you add on brush guards and tonneau covers to pickup trucks. It plays into the value some, but not much. Just remember that rare does not equal valuable, or desirable. Yugo's ...

I hope I can make it. I don't have any vacation time at work and I work Saturdays, so that'd be 3 unpaid days (ouch) but I'll try and move a couple of days off or something to make up for it. That weekend works for me though, the GF will be gone June 2-11 or something like that, so this works perfect.

This is where I think GM and Cadillac sorta have a gap. On the Chevy side, going up in size for example, you have the Captiva, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban. Basically they fill every size gap. However, for Cadillac, you basically go from 0 - 60. You have the Equinox sized SRX (since you're lo...

It's pretty amazing how many parts are interchangeable across brands. The hard part is knowing what they are and most shops don't have the time to look into these things. Certainly not for someone just walking in..."You guys got anything like this?". Mechanics and parts guys can work toge...

Looks good Mike!! It's funny (now, to me) that he uses Polaris bearings, as I just started working the Parts Counter at a local Powersports dealership that sells Yamaha, Polaris and BRP machines (including Indian, Slingshot, Star, Yamaha M/C, etc). So, if you ever need OEM parts, I can try and find ...

I called my body shop guy yesterday to ask how much it would cost to paint the GP the same color as my 04 Bonne was, the White-Gold Tri-Coat. Yikes, he spit out that $3k figure without stuttering! Looks like that idea will be waiting for a bit. LOL 3 grand is cheap, I'd have guessed 5-6k. Paint and...

Pretty sure the HUD switch just pops out with some prying. Use a plastic pry tool or a flat screwdriver wrapped in electrical tape to avoid damaging the trim.

Never seen a plate in there, and none of the Bonnes (4 Bonnes, all 2000+) came with OEM cabin filters, at least none that were there when I had them. Should be just a matter of getting the filter with the bracket and finessing it in there. I'd like a picture of what you're working with. How to post ...

GXP has a different sweep for the speedometer, so you'd be off on the mileage, and the boost gauge would read volts but show boost. That's why the chips aren't swappable. Because then the cluster acts like an SSEi cluster.

I had no idea there were G8's in Europe. I knew Vauxhall brought some Holden's over, but not G8's. Please take lots of pics and the VIN. I'd like to know if it was imported from the U.S. Maybe someone in the Armed Forces brought it over and sold it while stationed in Germany or Italy...

He shouldn't have the dash torn out for the ignition switch. You remove the cover and it comes out pretty easily, IIRC?

Throw some seafoam TransTune in there. If it can be fixed by fluid, that will fix it.

There isn't a paper gasket between the housing and the intake manifold. There is an o-ring around the thermostat. Make sure both the face of the intake and the face of the housing are clean and flat, and clean them with a scotch-brite if they're not. You shouldn't need a gasket unless something has ...

Knowing the UIM/LIM issues, and not knowing the history of the car, I'd tear the top end apart regardless. The parts are only $300, and its doable for someone with basic mechanic's skills and tools to do in a weekend. My big thing would be finding a car with no major problems, and no rust. Little cr...
