  2. How did you pick out your Buick?

    My search was similar to others, in that it basically involved finding a unicorn (sedan with a manual). I had been looking for a couple months casually until I found this one. A 2015 (last year for the manual) with <13,000 miles. The dealer had it for the better part of a year and made a...
  3. Tune after 120k miles?

    Just to add, I have the BNR tune and it's definitely worth it. I'm sure the Trifecta tune is similar though. With 120k miles, it's really just about making sure any regular maintenance items are done. In addition, anything that may be on the horizon. I don't know which engine you have, but...
  4. Camaro Wheels on GS

    I would have done the same. My #2 choice was in Oregon I believe. That would have been fun. Good choice! Don't get me wrong, I generally like the people here and of course, my family is here, but winters can be brutal. I need to move somewhere else that skips the bad seasons and keeps the...
  5. Camaro Wheels on GS

    Oh man, I could probably do a write-up on what it took to find this car. Knowing full well that 2015 was the last year for the manuals, that's all I searched for. I probably had every car app on my phone at once, along with using every website I could think of (shout out to AutoTempest). In...
  6. Camaro Wheels on GS

    No, they're actually the 20x9's, both front/rear. I think it might be possible for the 20x10's to fit, but I'm not sure if you would need spacers or not and I didn't want to go that route.
  7. Camaro Wheels on GS

    Here's my 2015 with the Camaro knock-off (Voxx 20x9). If you can get a deal on the actual GM wheels, I'd say go for it. Just don't buy the knock offs, unless you only drive on well-paved roads. The Voxx wheels were soft and didn't hold up well. DiscountTire was nice enough to give me a...
  8. Service Suspension System Light

    I took a shot at that SandyBlogs URL. Found an old copy via Web Archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20160315114934/http://sandyblogs.com/techlink/?p=994 Not sure if that will fix your issue, but there's the page as it was ~March, 2016.
  9. Viewing Turbo Boost with an Android app via OBD adapter

    Yes, it records anything you can view in the "dash" portion of the app, but what it records to the log file is configured separately. If you're not already, start familiarizing yourself with GM's PID's and which ones give you the info you're looking for. There are some GM PID's available via...
  10. Viewing Turbo Boost with an Android app via OBD adapter

    Torque is what I use and I think most others. It's highly configurable and I think it's mostly accurate. I believe it's $5-$6 on the Play Store, for the full version.
  11. 2012 regal: replacement key fob only works when I rear cupholder

    I had almost the exact same issue you did with an eBay key, but with my 2015 (so not exactly comparable with a 2012). The fob would operate everything in the car, the key was cut correctly by a specialty locksmith that dealt with those keys, etc. However, it would NOT start the car...
  12. Intake

    Definitely re-check all your connections, but the short answer is: you need a tune. Now, I cannot confirm, since I did my Injen and tune at the same time, but my understanding was that you should not add an intake without a tune on the LTG. I have not thrown a code since installing the Injen...
  13. Android tablet install

    Any idea if this particular model interferes with the passenger airbag indicator or if it's duplicated somehow? In looking at some of the ones available, they mention not using it with models that have a passenger airbag indicator. Honestly, I didn't think vehicles existed without that...
  14. Has anyone answered the LSD question for F40 manuals?

    While I know there's at least one thread here about it: Possible LSD for 6MT Regals I don't think that really answers the question either. From that thread, the general consensus was that it was unnecessary. However, I don't agree, at least from a technical standpoint. It honestly should...
  15. Audio and Visual traffic alerts showing up

    I got my first traffic incident alert from my Regal today. Had it almost a year and never seen it do this. I'm only just curious why it started today. Also, no XM subscription and it cut in to my bluetooth cast to warn me (would otherwise be fine, but was odd).
