    As per your last sentence. One of my bucket list trips is to cruz on Rt. 66 that's on my bucket list too. Hopefully before something major happens to my baby.

    I do come to Dallas but just bought the XLR. So it has not made that trip with me yet. If I do, I will let you know. Beautiful car BTW.

    2006 XLR's in this color is called Infrared. It's the same paint code as Red Jewel Tintcoat. Is that an aftermarket grille you got on there?

    Default New grill

    [QUOTE= Is that an aftermarket grille you got on there?[/QUOTE]
    It's the 'V' model grill. It was on the car when I bought it, but I probably would have put it on anyway. I like that mesh a LOT better than those Venetian blind slats on the base models. Also have it on the lower grill.
    Have added Magnaflo mufflers. Curb sensor. Heat shield under the center console, and wind deflector. Red's getting pretty close to what I have in my mind's eye. Still would like to add backup camera, and upgrade the navigation system (the standard one SUCKS!). After that, maybe a little paint chip repair, and he'll be PERFECT!

    What did you use for heat shield and did you install under the car or did you remove the console? I have been wanting to do something about that - you never have to worry about a coffee going 'stone cold' in an XLR

    Here's what I got (2 of them). I JUST had these put in and have not driven Red enough to really test it out. So I can't give you a definitive report on how well it worked - or not. As I get some input, I'll let you know.

    Yeah, I get asked all the time, "How fast is it?" My stock answer is, "A lot faster than I'm brave enough (or crazy enough) to drive!"
    I didn't buy it as a racer - that's what 'Vettes are for. I got it for enjoyable top-down cruising. And anything over about 60 is NOT enjoyable top-down.
