I thought I'd like GFG, but it's just got too much variability for my taste, but I do agree that gold works really well on it. Apparently this car is local to me, but I haven't seen it around. I have no idea what's on the hood, looks like an oven mitt.



It is. But it's an artisan oven mitt, unlike all the other people driving around with regular old oven mitts.

eh I’ll depart from you on the “or any black rims for that matter” part lol. Only some black wheels look good. They have to have an easily discernible spoke design, otherwise you just “lose” the wheels in the wheel wells. Personal opinion, of course...
No, I can agree with that. They need to have some definition so they stand out from the wheel wells. So yeah, I think I can dial back the "any black rims" statement a bit.

So it took 2 days to do it, but drove it 1300 miles to the black hills mountains of south Dakota, just to slide off into a ditch at the condo......

No pictures, was dark when it happened so I dont know if its hurt or not. I'm hoping it was software enough snow that it didn't hurt it. Will follow up tomorrow. What a way to start off the work vacation .....

That sucks. I hope there's no damage.

Thanks man. The main thing is the family was fine. Wife's nerves was shot, but fine otherwise. Hopefully it will warm up in a day or 2 so I can take it into town and wash it.

I had a similar incident over Christmas with our Suburban. Got attacked by a deer visiting family in Ohio, and just finally got it PDR done today.

$680 later is almost like it never happened, and the headlights are refinished too. Still need to buy a piece of trim and have it painted

Hopefully yours isn’t hurt, but if it is there’re cheaper solutions than a body shop if you’re lucky

New OEM PCV and upgraded ECS breather hose, because I loathe the connection on the OEM breather hose to the inlet pipe.

Yes, my engine bay is dirty. Out of site, out of mind.

So you got the new ECS PCV hose to work with the CTS TIP after all?
