    I don't think you'll get an authorized Hirsch dealership to do it. I've seen at least 2 or 3 folks with their "signature" say "9-4X Aero Hirsch" ... whether they are USA or not, I do not know. I will see if I can spot them again for you.

    How about our Russian friend? Isn't his Hirsched? I know that's Russia and not the USA, but maybe he can tell you if it was a legit Hirsch tune?

    So you're saying they still have the Ice Pearl one?

    Cars.com (not AT) lists an Aero for $30,990 for sale in Ice Pearl. 12,640 miles. VIN 3G0FNUE69BS800207

    Good for you ... that was a sweet price. Congrats!

    Still looking for an Aero in that price range. The red one in Memphis sold, but that was too many miles for one year. Houston is only 4 hours away from me right now. We'll be back to DC next summer though,

    Ah gotcha, most dealerships are not trying to haggle on the pricing hence why I went for this one so def good luck (maybe sales will go slow soon and they will start to haggle).

    Ordered an Extra Keyfob from Hendrick Saab at a Very Reasonable $111!

    Also Ordered Weather tech Digital Fit Mats that fit flawlessly.

    I did Try to Read HP Tuners Data How ever no luck, but it does use the E77 ECM (no access at the moment) so it seems like it maybe only Hirsch that can actually flash it for more power.

    So As part of a new car I decided to replace the filter (Air Intake) and I went with a K&N Filter.

    I can confirm K&N Part # [FONT=verdana,arial,helvetica]"K&N 33-2444 High Performance Replacement Air Filter for 2010 Cadillac SRX 2.8/3.0L V6"


    Does fit perfectly Fine

    One Interesting Tidbit was the installation and removal

    Installation:

    Take off engine cover
    Remove Snorkel Pike Connected to the intake box
    Unclip Air box (Yay no more hex screws)
    Wiggle the box out of the way from body trim and take air filter out
    All you need are your hands and no tools.

    The interesting piece was the stock filter had some foam extra filter attached to it that seemed to trap dirt etc

    I wonder if removing this unit for replacement with a oil K&N filter will damage the MAF sensor or anything along the lines of that because I am removing the filter element

    Anywhose see the pics and make opinions.

    Will tell you butt dyno results soon
