    Re: The sR Car Thread

    Denny

    I am tired of going to dealerships to get work done on my car because they are over priced. What is the best way to look around for mechanics that aren't a part of dealerships and some sort of things to look for to see if they are good or not besides reviews?

    Also, I have to replace my rotors and break pads on my car. I would prefer to buy my own parts that I want. Is it frowned upon for me to bring my own parts and just pay someone for labor?

    I would replace them myself and have before, I just don't have the time to devote to it.

    Best way to find a good shop is by word of mouth. Ask anyone and everyone.

    Totally frowned upon to take your parts to a shop. It'd be like bringing a steak to a restaurant and asking them to cook it. And if something goes wrong later, there won't be a warranty.

    Fair enough, just wanted to make sure.

    Next, what are some good performance rotors and brakes for a 2009 Pontiac G8, V6? I was using Hawks but apparently they don't carry them for my car anymore.

    I can't really offer any performance recommendations. We use Carquest schtuff at work, and it's solid. For Team Impala, I just got Wagner ceramic pads and Centric rotors. Equally good.

    I thought about posting that, really. But it seems like a dead horse at this point. And earlier

    Re: The sR Car Thread

    I have a new to me Oldsmobile Bravada, a last gen 2002-2004 (not sure which exact year yet) Will post pics and more later. Runs like a top and body/interior is great, must not have spent most of its life in Illinois as there's no rust. I'm super stoked right now, as I've been without transportation for a while. Lots of jobs apps going in, but I'll make time to snag a few photos. Those that don't know, I'm disabled (that OD, he crazy! lol) and am finally going back to work again. Also I just need 1 class in fall to knock out the associates degree with honors (even with a C for the last one as I'm at 3.95 with 61 credits).


    Forward motion again, feels good.

    2003, which tells me my tank size. I will have to be careful with the pedal, gas mileage is... eek. Not really any different than My GMC Sierra got, though this is a V6 instead of the V8 I had.
