    re: Jack Pads

    Many XLR owners are using Corvette jack pads. I have made my own via hockey pucks and screw eyes. You can easily search the forum for more info.

    THE END

    Sorry to hear the XLR is going bye-bye ... Itz such a beautiful vehicle! Unfortunately, I don't see the used car value doing anything but the continued downward spiral it has shown. I'm not convinced people (at this stage of the game) will be willing to pay a premium for a vehicle out of...

    Help! HOW ARE YOUR BODY PANELS AND PAINT

    Although I have a somewhat critical eye, I can easily see some misalignment in a door and fender. The paint on the hood also appears to be blotchy. If I had not purchased it new, I might have thought there was repair work done previously.

    I share your thoughts on this matter. Fortunately, on a real bad snow day, my work is usually canceled.

    winter driving

    Sorry to disappoint some of you, but my XLR is my winter vehicle. I bought it to enjoy and drive daily ... Just like a few Vettes I've used as daily drivers. In the past, I've even been known to drive my midyear 427 on a nice winter day. Gotta love the free horsepower on a cold morning.:laugh:

    binka- Glad you are doing well ... So far. Don't forget to use the manual tranny mode for better starts. If you leave the selector in 5th, you will start off in 2nd gear and avoid more wheel spin. BTW- What do you think of the dry road handling of the tires?
