  1. Tire replacement time -- leaning toward summer tires (Southwest US)

    I live in Wisconsin so I do swap them out in the fall/spring. I've driven them on a few 40 degree mornings since getting them put on and didn't have any issues.
  2. Tire replacement time -- leaning toward summer tires (Southwest US)

    I highly recommend Firestone Indy 500's. They are a summer only tire but are great in the rain and provide better braking and handling than the all season tires that came with my Regal. It's my second spring/summer with them on and I continue to be impressed with them. However, even a high...
  3. 2020 Regal Sportback/TourX - What's New

    That is the wheel used on the base model LaCrosse. Probably just a mistake like 4wheelforay mentioned. Otherwise, they could be using up extra stock ;).
  4. Spring Mods

    Very nice! Can't wait to get my summers on in a couple weeks. I have the Indy 500's as well. Great tire for the price!
  5. 2019 GS First 800 miles thoughts

    Very interesting. Such a weird omission. BTW that picture you posted is such a good angle of the GS. Gorgeous car! What did you have done that they gave you a CTS loaner? I've never been offered a loaner ever lol. How does it compare to the GS handling wise? I always regretted not...
  6. 2019 GS First 800 miles thoughts

    It's really sad to see they got rid of some of these simple things such as the interior trunk release, 20" wheel option, physical recirculation button, or extending visors on the 2018+. My 2016 has all of these things. I guess these were the things that couldn't make the budget considering you...
  7. Remote Start

    The basic OnStar plan used to give you 5 years of the remote start via the app but I just recently found out they don't offer that feature on their free plan anymore after discussing it with a coworker who recently got a new car. You have to pay a minimum of $14.99/month to get it now.
  8. Chocolate Metallic 2015 Regal Premium 1

    Congratulation on your purchase! Definitely not a color combination I've ever seen on a Regal before. It really is a shame that the GS had limited color options and a black only interior. I'd love to see some more pictures of the interior. The saddle brown is really unique.
  9. New Grill

    Yes, it does look photoshopped on haha. Nice grille, will definitely give it that unique look here in the states. I also prefer the Buick grille to the European grilles but to each their own. How hard was it to replace?
  10. Todays the day!!! Goodbye to the GS 👍🏻

    Sweet collection! I'd love to have all of those Pontiacs to choose from ;)
  11. Todays the day!!! Goodbye to the GS 👍🏻

    Nice Solstice and G8 drools. Would love to have both of those in my garage, in addition to a CTS-V and a 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero :p (I know I have weird taste haha).
  12. Restoring GS 20s

    Aside from the deeper scratches they look good. They aren't ever going to have a perfect mirror finish, that's just how polished aluminum is.
  13. GS Auto Transmission

    As BoostedRegal mentioned the GS will hold the gears at a higher RPM in some situations if it detects you are driving more aggressively while in GS mode. I've had this happen to me while accelerating quickly when going onto a highway on ramp or while accelerating into a corner after I let off...
  14. Todays the day!!! Goodbye to the GS 👍🏻

    Congratulations on your purchase! The CTS-V is a gorgeous car (my dream car haha)!! You'll have to share some pictures when you get it.
  15. Restoring GS 20s

    All GS 20's are polished aluminum from the factory. Detroit wheel and tire buys wheels that need to be refinished and does them in PVD chrome. As long as you have factory OEM wheels they will be clear coated. You could use a compound and polish just as you would on your paint to try and...
