  1. Left rear wheel "whine"

    This started earlier this past winter when I had my winter rims/tires on...basically it's a low pitched "whine" coming from the left rear. I thought it might have been one of the winter tires and wearing funny, but I swtiched to my summers this weekend and took it out for a spin. The noise is...
  2. 2013 resale value is terrible on the GS

    I'm sure this has been posted before....but good God the resale value on my GS is absolutely dreadful. For a car that stickered at $39k and change new, I would be lucky to get $20k on a trade in according to black book. I've got just under 30k miles and she's in excellent shape...I know the 2014...
  3. Got 26,000 out of my Brembo pads...looking for a low dust replacement

    Took my GS in for a few small things to get fixed the other day. I had noticed the familiar "warning screech" as I was driving about a week ago. I knew, given what I've read on here and the softness of the OEM pads, that I was probably due for new ones. 26,000 miles isn't too bad considering how...
  4. Ridiculous G35...wasted

    So I am driving north on I-69, when I notice a blue Infiniti G35 in my rearview. I see it has ground effects, and what looks to be those stupid cambered tires. I move to the right lane and my suspicions are confirmed. It's a ridiculous looking G35 with giant rims, cambered out (I hate that look...
  5. Almost got into the wrong GS today

    So we all know Regal GS sightings are pretty rare...at least they are in my area. Today I had to run into the grocery, and when I came out I went to what I thought was my car. I had a lot on my mind and wasn't paying too much attention, and tried to get into another white diamond tricoat GS! As...
  6. We know about your Regal... Whats your other ride?!

    2007 GMC Sierra 1500, nothing special...work truck, bare bones. Now this is worth sharing. 2009 Pontiac G8 GT. I love the big V8, and the exhaust makes it sound great. Not overbearing, but enough to let the BMW snobs know I have a little something for them. Fun to drive, good highway MPGs...
  7. Finally...my winter setup

    Got them done today. GT Radial Winter Pro. Konig Crown rims. I thought they would be 55 sidewalls, but my guy went w 50's (235/50R18) to keep overall diameter close to stock. 55s would have left too little clearance. Plus he threw in TPMS at a nice discount. Total cost was $1000 and change...
  8. I cried "Uncle!" Winter setup Friday

    With no end in sight for this terrible winter (not to mention the potholes that won't be fixed until mid April)...I had to make the tough call to finally get a winter setup. Going with GT Radial Champiro 18" 55 sidewall tires, Konig Crown rims. It's all I can afford right now, but I also can't...
  9. Coefficient of drag and MPG...observation.

    Today I had another roadie from Indy to Fort Wayne. I filled up before I hit the highway. I did a little experiment...at various speeds I noted the instant MPGs. What I found was quite interesting.... At 68 mph i set the cruise. I was averaging 24 mpg, ranged from 20-25 given the slight hills...
  10. My car is cursed! Paint help please.

    Well, my tire issues are well documented. Two replacements in one week. Now this. I have a tight garage and backed out yesterday morning, and the weed eater fell on my car. I think I caught it and it dragged for a second. As soon as I saw it come down I stopped. And got out and saw this. Great...
  11. This deserves its own thread! (Potholes)

    So I am driving to a meeting...and on my way there, I hit something. I was boxed in and it looked like an ice block. I couldn't avoid it without causing a massive wreck! Anyway, I get a warning that the left rear is in trouble. It counts down the pressure...PSI going down fast. I get it to the...
  12. #=@$! Potholes!

    Smacked a pothole today...narrow road and no way to miss without going into oncoming traffic. No bent rim, but the tire has a sidewall bulge. Not good. Luckily I have a friend that manages a nearby Discount Tire. He can get it replaced for $150 and warranty the other tires. If you haven't done...
  13. Hello from a new GS owner!

    Hello everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Matt, and I just purchased a 2013 Regal GS. So far I love it. Went for all the options, and got a great deal as I bought it on Dec 31st and am GMS (Dad is retired from GM)... I thought about the '14, but the changes weren't enough to...
