Is there any way (other then carfax) to find out the previous owner's name? I just want to be 100% on what is and isn't on my car from this point forward.
I'm guessing he worked in Chicago, but lived over by Rockford.I would think it was a trade in and the dealer didn't bother to (or want to) sell it off their lot, so just sent it direct to auction. Doubt it was repo'd.
That 2011-12 owner certainly put some miles on it though. 23000 in 11 months... wow! At least they must've been highway miles.
I want the Paul Harvey on this...vendor and parts. Sounds interesting. Have you had your car to 88mph? Just asking...So if I can't find the PO, I thought maybe I could at least find out who did some other work to it.... (nothing in my signature!) I have contacted Solo, and they were so courteous and went above and beyond to answer my questions... So I contacted another vendor in Tilley Alberta, and had a HORRIBLE experience. He wanted to play 20 questions with me about where I bought it, how I got it, how I knew it had certain items, etc....and when I had enough, I politely asked him to answer the question again about whether he supplied the work....he got a little hostile and told me he didn't have time, but had time to email me 6 different times....He also stated that his items did things that are not possible in our cars.......ummmm...wrong!!! That he had stuff other vendors didn't....yeah...right.
So I'm gonna try a few others and see how their attitudes are!
Bottom line, be careful of the vendors you use....especially if it involves certain items....
I found out tonight that I do have a tune in my car. I know someone that was able to give me the "part number" or tune number for my car. In the first 2 segments I have the normal GM tune of 12612664 and 12619548. But all of the rest have the number 82537428. Does anyone know who uses that number? I know that I don't have a Trifecta as I've already contacted him trying to find out if Vince tuned it. I was told Vince didn't tune it. The guy that found this number for me told me that aftermarket guys will use the same number for every tune usually.
Also, I'm trying to figure out my exhaust. It has no name on it anywhere that I can see. I know Borla usually puts Borla on its exhaust somewhere, but we were unable to find anything when we had it on the hoist to look it over. Where should I be looking? I know usually at the tailpipe, but there's nothing there. It is aftermarket....it's too loud and throaty to be factory....
Any help on this is appreciated!!
