Good for you Kenny. How is the experience? I've heard mixed things about the new LS. I really like the 98-00s that I have been fortunate enough to drive. Wondering about main differences in...

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the response, I actually am in Orange and would love to check out that place. What are the chances of that working out so nicely. AC systems are too pricey to start throwing...

LSCowboyLS

Anyone hear from him lately? Seems like it has been awhile since I've seen him around. He has helped me quite a bit since I started my jouney, I'd hate to see his good insights leave this forum.

Legender that sounds like a heck of a problem, mine with the car off would fall into the appropriate range but only overcharge when on. Yours is high even with the car off that seems really weird.

The weird thing is that it wasn't overcharging before I took it apart to do the bearings. I even ordered a new regulator because I thought that might be it. Maybe the new regulator was bad as well?...

HA-HA. Yes, you will probably enjoy this car very much. With 88k and from a dealer - most places I see charge closer to 10k. Sounds like you got a rockin' deal.

At highway speeds it is dropping down that much? I'm no expert but that does not sound normal. The normal for these cars or at least on our 3, is just a hair about the 40% ticker or third from the...
