    I might be interested in the product you describe. I have a 2008 Sky and was just wondering if I needed these clips. I have no problem at the moment but because they are out of production should I keep a set for the future? If I should need them how much would they be? I'm assuming they would fit into an envelope and could be mailed by the USPS to me in Canada.

    Rob, I was driving down the road the other day and saw a GXP Fastback. I had forgotten how striking they look. Are there any for sale on the Forum very often? I am paging and searching through it now but thought I'd ask. Thanks. Don Knowles. Thedonknowles@yahoo.com

    Rob it looks like the decision has been made to sell my Solstice to CarMax because my wife will no longer put up with the transmission suddenly shifting down at low speeds. I understand replacing one of the Solenoids might be a solution, but since there is now a gorgeous Corvette convertible in my garage and the Solstice has been literally kicked to the curb, I don't feel like there is much else to do. Anyway, a quick question so my drive to CarMax and their test drive goes well before they make me an offer. Can I reasonably expect that if I disconnect the positive battery cable for 30-45 minutes before I drive there that the car will perform as expected without the downshift rearing its ugly head? I don't really want to replace the solenoid at this point since I am not really that mechanically inclined and I am just selling the car to them anyway. I'll look for your reply, and I thank you so much for all your advice that I have read in the short time that I have owned my Solstice.
