Less then 3k in this as you see it. Radio works! cost $466 to get it aligned and get the new body module reprogrammed.... locks aren't working yet, but that's almost a given in my life (go cheap, buy twice).... that said, I'm sure I could get my money and then some out of it - however, I wanted a 'rental' - a car to loan, drive in sketchier places, it needed to be something fun and ride nicely. It does that in spades, that said... it ... is.... very .... slow.... yeah, I might have to do something about that.
body has 100k on it, engine 57k

It is my first Opel, so I imagine there's lots of stuff on this car that's different. My 06 GTO (Holden) didn't have this design - but that was a T56. It's a fun car
There shpuld have been ine on the driveshaft. The t56 uses a normal slip style yoke with a giubo on it. I have 2 gto t56s both have ut

New brakes and flush of the brake system

the rotors were absolutely trashed, but had new, rear pads (which I replaced because I didn't know whether they were ceramic or semi-metallic)

sooo.... about the door lock...
QX3ID0hh
it really wasn't a terrible task
2wVuWc1h
but it really didn't fix anything
so the trunk won't open - either. They claim there is a valet switch - but I have no idea where it is, where they say, it isn't there.... I've done my bit, I'll take it to Cadillac to resolve the last problems - remotes, spare keys, trunk issue.
