  1. I think you mean the kind of cd player that needs power& ground and taps into the antenna? I've already go two of those in other cars. You are probably right. I suspect the best place for it is in the right rear of the trunk near the antenna. What would be the safest place to pull the power?
  2. Hi All From the pictures i've seen the optional CD player went in where the little storage box below the radio is in the standard equipment car. Also it appears that the standard cassette tape player is part of the CD option. In other words the CD player looks to be "added" to the standard radio package. Is this true? If so how difficult is it to find an original CD player and "add" it to the car.
  3. Reatta 45 "At night is the system that dims the instrument panel working?" Yes the dimming function works fine. To all on the Forum: I gotta say that driving this car makes me feel like a million bucks going down the road. I don't have lots of money in my car but the bang for the buck is fantastic. Do the rest of you get that too? I'll bet we enjoy these cars more than most of the original owners did.
  4. At the time the Twilight Sentinal started to give me the Headlights Suggested annunciator I did have a dash mat in place. The first thing I did was pull the dashmat back to see if it was blocking the light. Pulling back the mat made no change. Is it possible that the system is sophisticated enough that there is a time delay so that the lights don't go on and off if you go under a bridge or somthing? Also someone on the forum mentioned that it is unwise to pop out the headlights at highway speeds? Any experience with that theroy?
  5. Hi All My 91 coupe has the Twilight Sentinal option and has seemed to work OK up untill yesterday. (I've only had the car a month) I was riding down the road with a bright sun in my eyes and the "Headlight Suggested " annunciator illuminates. So I make sure the slider is all the way to OFF (left) and the yellow light stays on. So i turn on the headlights and turn them off and the annunciator goes off and stays off for 2 minutes and comes back on. Is this common and if so is there an easy fix? If not i would just as soon disable this option and forget it. As far as i'm concerned if you ca
  6. Hi all, My new to me 91 Reatta coupe sure has a personality all it's own. When it has not been run that day it will start and stop. On the second try it will start and continue every time and run smooth. Should I mess with it or accept this quirk? Also the car seems to like to be run. After it has run for 5 minutes under a load the idle improoves and is perfectly smooth. It seems to me that it is running a little on the lean side when cold. That is the extent of my knowlege. Is there a fix or is this just a quirk? As everyone recommends I had what I think is a pretty good shop do all t
  7. Hi All, My car came without the leather binder and manual etc. Does anybody have this stuff for sale? Could sombody post some pictures of what you got with a new Reatta? I'd like to see the pen and tire guage etc. Wasn't there somthing else in that binder? steve
  8. I believe the wiper and washer share the same fuse. Wipers work so fuse must be good. I really didnt want to take out the structural member. My car is a 91 coupe. Man that spider is creepy!
  9. There is a tail light listed on ebay today. sorry. i think a crash is all Reatta owner's worry.
  10. 63Viking Is it necessary to remove the brace in order to pull out the widshield washer tank? I hate to remove a structural member if it can be avoided steve
  11. Will a Riviera drivers seat have the same style and color upolstery as the Reatta? That sounds too easy. steve, 91 white coup
  12. So all i really need is the Driver's seat? I can't sit over on the passenger seat anyway! thanks!!!!!!!!! I want what I want but the money is limited of course. I've been told that the leg extension thing is really comfortable. Yes? steve 91 white coup
  13. Hi All Today I left my first post and two of my questions/problems are solved already!!! I really wish my new car had the 16 way seat. I know it was an option. My original seats (saddle) are in great shape however i'd still like the better seats. Were both driver and passenger seats 16 way if you got the option? Has anybody removed the standard seat(s) and replaced them with 16 way? Is the wiring compatable? (plug and play?) Will a change like this increase or devalue the car in the future? I may be Reatta crazy now. Other than an original 55 Chevy Nomad the Reatta is the only car I ev
  14. Bought a Reatta an am happy as a clam. Should have bought a new one years ago but they were expensive. I wanted a Reatta since I first saw the ads on TV in 88. I bought the one listed on ebay 190139124929. 91 white coupe with 65000 miles and runs great. Confirmed it has always been in California Paid $5500. Was that a fair price? Just about everything works and works like new. So far i've changed some light bulbs and repaced the old tires. Does this car have different brakes than the 88-90 models? Anything different that is better or worse than other models? Any suggestions as to how to
