    Actually, i've had alot of compliments on the red calipers. But, to each his own. I'm trading it in on a Touareg AWD. Absolutley love my LS but can't handle the sub-par brakes, Finnicky transmission, and ridiculously low ground clearance. I need more room in the carge area and the trunk is...

    2005 LSV8 Ultimate for sale

    Tag, yes. We designed them ourselves. Wanted something more modern and wanted to stand out. Something kind of cool for the kids too. Allows us to be more "approachable". Plus, most of the public does ot recognize it as a traffic unit while at speed on the roadway, allowing for easier traffic...

    continuing cooling issues

    Check very carefully for a leak. Inspect around the waterpump and the entire radiator. If no leaks are present, then you must be losing coolant into the engine. Blown head gasket or intake gasket. Have you noticed alot of steam on cold morning when first starting the car or even after driving...

    Won't start - speakers pop

    That hold-down bolt is a piece. I had new battery installed at Ford under factory warranty. After leaving Ford, I inspected the battery while pumping fuel and noticed the bolt was not tight. I could actually pull up on the bolt, causing the battery to slide a bit. Turns out, the bolt had...

    Best Brakes for Stock Use?

    Ordered my Akebono's from, not sure who else carries them. Tirerack also has Valeo buy one get one free on wipers. Great wipers, even better price, same as Bosch Icon wipers. Get a set of the wipers when you order your pads. It's like ten bucks to turn a rotor. Find a brake shop or...

    Upgrading Thermostat?

    Leave the t-stat alone. They have been engineered to be perfect. They are high temp for a reason. Too low opening temp and the water doesnt sit in the radiator long enough to cool. If you remove it and run without one, it will overheat because the water doesnt stay in the radiator long enough to...

    Very Good Read on Oil

    Not a total believer. Wear at start-up is due to all the oil being drained into the sump. Also, nearly all oil pumps are mechanical, only operating while the engine is turning or running. Also, when an engine is cold (ambient temp), the different types of metals, alloys have a certain tolerance...

    IIRC, there is a sticker affixed with the code printed on it. I believe the sticker is somewhere under the driver's side column, affixed to the pcm, or some other box.

    how far do you drive to work?

    Approx. 8 miles each way. I have resorted to parking my LS and riding my bike. Honda CBR that is. 60 MPG versus 20 MPG. Plus, keeps the mileage down until i can buy the extended service plan. I must admit though, i miss driving my lady.
