  1. Dead Battery / 4 Digit Radio Code

    QP5 2003-2012
    I had this issue and found out on the 2007 and 2008 QTP EGT that if you remove the ash tray, the four digit code is written on the side with a sharpie.:thumbsup: I had my car stored for 3 months with totally dead battery. Let it trickle charge for 3 days and came back to full power but had the...

  4. '07 QP front shock bushings

    QP5 2003-2012
    I should also comment the reason I changed it out is this shop does all the Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, and Maserati dealership work for alignments. He told me they have done bushing kits before only to find out that the ball joint at the end of the control rod will either be failing or next to fail...
  5. '07 QP front shock bushings

    QP5 2003-2012
    Typically it is the upper control arm bushings that go first. I ended up replacing the entire assembly on both sides (very costly but rock solid now). As a matter of fact I have an extra brand new right side control arm I might consider selling...if interested. The bushing kits cost about $400...
  6. Front License Plate on QP5 Executive GT

    QP5 2003-2012
    I am in Illinois, home of the four incarcerated governors that upheld the most important rule that all vehicles licensed in Illinois shall have a viewable front license plate (most likely so they would have a job in prison:grin2::grin2: Anyway, I am not looking to drill holes in the front of...
  7. 2008 QP TPMS Failure

    QP5 2003-2012
    I am replacing both sides of the front suspension assembly and installing new tires. I will see if that brings about any "new" issues with the TPMS. I cannot believe how temperamental this system is!!

  12. New Tire Consideration for QP EGT

    QP5 2003-2012
    I understand about the summer tires compound composition. That is why I want to wait til summer and try them to compare to the AS3+ to see if there is much of a difference at all. If the tires fit as I have been told I have a feeling that I will just stick with the Michelin as my intent is to...

  15. New Tire Consideration for QP EGT

    QP5 2003-2012
    I do not plan on being so hard core that I will try traversing inches of snow. I own a couple Suburbans for that chore and a Hyundai with front wheel drive. I am more concerned about road noise, comfort, and handling. Tire Rack gives them an excellent rating for all season high performance. My...
