    2008 XLR for sale

    I didn't think the day would come, but I need to sell my XLR. She is a 2008 with 16.8k miles. I have installed 2009 XLR NOS wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport, less than 300 miles and I have the originals as well. Both are perfect with no curb rash. Included is a Corsa system, not installed...

    Interior "Chalking"

    I'm hoping this doesn't make me seem to be ignorant, but here is goes. What aspects of our interiors are leather and what's plastic?

    Interior "Chalking"

    This brings up the fact I need to drive the XLR more and work less! Thanks for your insight Mickeytee

    Interior "Chalking"

    I really don't drive my XLR very much, but recently there has been a "chalky" film on some the the interior leather. Now I keep the car in a dehumidified and keep the air circulating in the garage. In the trunk and interior I keep descant bags. I'm at a loss about this stuff. When I first...

    Car Covers

    I bought a California Car Cover and have been very pleased with it! Not inexpensive and it takes some time to make as they are made to order!

    Exhaust System Part Numbers

    Ya know when I saw the the system on the net I thought to myself, after I put a new Corsa system on it will be used so why not buy a used system! Saved a few thousand dollars. Corsa doesn't send or sell the bolts or gasket with their systems and every parts vendor doesn't show them. My new...

    Exhaust System Part Numbers

    I was able to find a "previously loved" Corsa system for an amazing price. Once delivered it is almost new I was very fortunate. My question is, what are the part numbers for the bolts attaching the resonator to the catalytic converter and the "gasket" at the same connection? I have looked...

    Tech 2

    Thanks for your reply Rexster. My thoughts are that these parameters are not reconfigurable. But I do plan to give it a try!

    Tech 2

    Thanks Rexster, I do understand that the Tech 2 is a very dynamic tool for diagnostic, but can it also change the parameters within the individual computers? For example eliminate day time running lights, speed limiter and other more dynamic setting?

    Tech 2

    Thanks Rexter! There are so may on the market I don't want to make a $300 mistake and buy a total piece of junk. I'm looking forward to the spring and some reasonable weather to bring my XLR out into the sun light...

    Tech 2

    Before I actually need a Tech 2 I plan to purchase one, however there seems to be quite a number on the open market. Could someone give me direction for a past experience, good or bad? Is there a correct part number or is it an order by specific car and what extras are needed for complete...

    Tiny dents in the aluminum console bezel

    To remove this part, is it affixed with double sided tape or something more aggressive? I'm going to change out my door sills and these appear to be a double sided tape. My thoughts are to use a heat gun to warm the adhesive and then, gently, pry them up. Is this the same for the center console?

    XLR Stuck in Gear... Shift Cable Repair

    Thanks for the follow up! My concern is that a cable has a very long life where as the bushing are apparently short. The adjustment of the cable could be beyond normal humans, where the bushing seem to be very straight forward. From my work scope I will have the underpinning wide open, but...
