Everyone knows that white Kappas are just primered awaiting their final paint coating. Red, of course, being the fastest color, probably 5 MPH faster than yellow, silver or grey.

2267 is the number of Redlines produced in 2009, but only 178 Olympic white Redlines were made.

So you're saying that they may have taken some of those 178 to paint them depending on the demands?

I guess you guys already know about this VIN explaining website?

Painted Polar White first in order to get Sunburst Yellow.
That is why the (Sunburst) Yellow SKY Kappa's cost more then the others...
Even Norm from Norm's fiberglass charges a little more on Yellow body parts that he sells...

He knows that there are suckers born every minute and figures he's got a better shot with someone who'd get a yellow one.

Good price on those filters assuming shipping was reasonable!
BTW, Pennzoil Platinum meets warranty spec and is frequently on sale at Walmart for $25. It's as good as Mobil 1, which is rarely below $30.

12.95$ S&H + 23.25$ 6 filters = 6.03$ each.
didnt want to buy Fram or these other brands that GM might spit on.
ACdelco seemed perfect for a GM car.

Thanks for the tip for the oil, I'll check it out, I already created a "sale alert" on Canadian-tire's website for Mobil 1.

Whenever you take your car in to the dealer, make them inspect it with you before leaving it to sign off on there being no cracks etc.

Whenever you get them to change the oil, inspect the work order before picking it up again to ensure that synthetic was used. We've seen several instances of dealers wrongly using non-synthetic oil which would violate warranty. If you see you've been charged for non-synthetic, tell them to put it right back on the lift and change it again, and you will only be paying what you would have had they done it right the first time.

EXCELLENT, looks like you are set for at least the next 2-3 years..
Also looks like you over paid a little for the oil.. Walmart has it cheaper.. I make a special trip to wallyworld just for my oil..most other places charge from $5 or more for M1..
