2005 Cadillac XLR Axle Back Exhaust or Less Expensive Options?

From centexXLR:

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to express my excitement that I just joined this forum. I just purchased a 2005 XLR (The ruby red color – sorry didn’t look it up) with my father at a Mecum Auto Show last weekend. This my first post.

At any rate. I wanted to ask – as one of the first mods my father and I will be changing the exhaust – is there an axle back system that is able to be purchased? So JUST the two mufflers with tips – nothing past the first break in the pipes after they come down from the axle to the straight pipe.

OR perhaps a less expensive option than the 1800 Corsas that I am finding is the only option for the 2005 … maybe a used set if anyone knows?

Do the c6 corvette mufflers fit on the XLR’s? I have not been able to find the answer to that either …

Please let me know what you guys have seen or others have done.

Thank you,
