  • Production # for 2006? October 21, 2021
    Can any one tell me the VIN production number of the first XLR/V off the line in 2006? My car has a date of 04/06 on it and the production # is either 3511 or 511, so does that mean 511 (or 3511) XLR/V chassis rolled off the line by April of 2006? Thanks!
  • Fascia Upgrade from '07 to '09 October 20, 2021
    Thinking about a front refresh for my '07 XLR-V, my understanding is that the new bumper fits on the older model. Question is, where would one source the whole fascia with a good price and shipped internationally? It seems difficult and hard on the wallet to go with OEM, as some parts are discontinued. Appreciate […]

However, not right. I plugged in the Tech II and it has a diagnostic function that displays a mis-fire counter for each cylinder […]
