    I am in the same "boat" as JWade. Also in the market for an XLR and would rather purchase a "V" if I can find one (Black & Ebony) in my price range with not to many miles on it. Been watching them and prices seem to very pretty much on mileage and year. Have seen late models 06-09 with pretty high mileage for sale pretty low ( high 20's to very low 30's) and once in awhile a low mileage one as high as the upper 50's. I recently purchased a Chevy SSR (3 years ago) and it was pretty much the same....mileage had a large factor on the price. Both the XLR's and the SSR's are what are called "niche" vehicles...only appeal to smaller group of people than the high performance vehicles like Vette's, Mustangs, Camaros and Challengers (staying with domestic brands here...LOL) that have a larger customer base. The SSR's have been holding their value in the last 3 years....since I have only been looking at the XLR's for a couple month's now do not have any history on them...rarely do you see one go up for auction on tv......I did read on this forum that a few are going up for auction at the Barrett Jackson Scottsdale auction next month but that Barrett Jackson auction is the "Na Na Land" of auctions....most others do not get anywhere near what those vehicles sell for. Too many bidder's there with more money than they have sense.....(just my opinion..I am sure there are others who will disagree...LOL)

    I think a low mileage V will loose a lesser amount but I do not think any XLR will retain its value or increase for another 5-7 years. Stick with the later years 07 08 09 . I think people read about the 04 and 05 having a lot of problems and I just do not see an 04-05 ever being worth top money .That's my opinion. Others mileage may vary

    Sometimes a good car will pop up on one of those sites. I found one on auto-trader or cars.com about 700 miles away but was fortunate to have a friend in the same town who could inspect it for me. There’s always some risk when you buy on-line or try to set up a purchase that includes a one-way airplane ticket.
    The world is run by those who show up!

    That looks like a car well worth the money . low enough mileage to drive it a while without any loss in value. I would follow up on that one for sure.

    Our '05 was pristine condition w/new tires, 36K miles and brought top dollar this year...... Never had any issues. Would loved to have kept it, but too many cars and with so many discontinued parts unavailable, believed I made the right decision.

    May I say this I would closely look at all the electronics in a vehicle like that if you see fog in the headlamps are moisture in any part of that vehicle walk fast there was numerous floods hurricanes and tornadoes within the last year that's why you'll see a lot on the net reasonable prices so it seems until down the road.... out there now I will say this I been on this site for a while I own a silver over black 06 V what would you people out there recommend the fair value for that car it is pristine 8300 miles original down to factory pirelli's what should that bring at auction just a question thanks. jerz........

    12 year old tires are not a good idea IMHO. Suggest you fit new ones. Have a good 2019.
