Through facebooks xlr net site the allante /xlr club will be going to Howey-in-the-Hills area. I just looked at the map and it’s on the northwest side of Orlando and around the winter garden/mount Dora/de land area. I’m thinking of attending. But not really sure. It’s oct 24-28th. It’s just a little over 2 hrs south of where I live. Just throwing this out for the other xlr owners that live near or in the central or southwestern part of Florida. Has anyone attended one of these allante xlr events here in Florida.
A friend of mine is looking for some sts original wheels. He thinks they are the same as the xlr but not sure. He wanted me to ask the xlr community. He really doesn’t do Facebook or social media that much. He wants to get his sts looking original. He said he has a scrape or I think the other owner replaced the wheels with non original.

I guess I have gremlins again. I’ve noticed the last couple weeks that everytime/sometimes when I open the trunk my trunk lights don’t come on. But then when I open the doors they’ll come on. Has anyone notice this or has this happened to yours.
Well after a year or so of looking and waiting trying to figure the right time and waiting for cooler weather [emoji38]([emoji23] yeah right Florida weather isn’t cooler). I finally bit the bullet and got to cleaning my floor. Because I have a left foot accelerator mounted in the car I didn’t want to tear up my good floor mat. So it’s been a little more then a year since I went with a floor mat that I had custom cut around my pedal opening. Then I opted to get a better made one that’s easier to release. So the floor carpet looked very dirty almost black around the edges. I went to autozone and picked up this bottle of tough stuff with attached brush. I spent a couple hrs sweating in my open garage with a fan going on this hot and humid Halloween day. It looks about 90% better but still have some scrubbing to do. On another note I’m getting the side plastic piece that supports the seat and side adjusters replaced and the glove box handle piece replaced. My dealership called and told me the parts are in. I have a scratch/rip on the front section of my passenger seat. So I’m getting that repaired on the 13th before I get the parts installed.
I know it’s not xlr related but most of our members here probably have iPhones.
Haven’t tried this yet because I just got alerted to this today. The feature has been the subject of renewed focus recently as protests against police brutality continue across the U.S
So here you go iPhone users
Well after seeing at a post on Facebook on the caddy xlr site I went out to take pics and post them there. That in turn made me see this.
It might be a little hard to see in the dark. But I’ve noticed on my amber lens it is cracked. Then that made me in turn chat with A xlr owner in penn. he and I think the lights might’ve been left over from 05. Then I pulled out my car fax and read it It shows that back in nov 22 if 05 it was sold to Ed Morse in Delray Beach Florida. Then the odometer was reported and red Florida motor vehicle dept cockeysville md. On the 22nd and 29th. Registered as a commercial vehicle serviced Jan 31st if 2006 Ed Morse bayview caddy in ft Lauderdale
Then on 7/22/06 the title was updated and registered as red.
Moral of this story is the lights probably were 05’s brought over to soon to be 06 model.
But back in late 2018 I had the driver side parking/daytime running light changed because bulb was out. The passenger side is lit still but slowly going out. The lenses are both showing heat melt. But the passengers side I noticed has a crack going in all directions (north south east and west). Will look at this more closely tomorrow in the daytime
06 headlights have the 10 wire connector. They articulate. The 04-05 do not . the burned upper lens do this on all the lights no matter what years. 06 -09 lights can be made to work o n04-05 but 04-05 lights will not work on 06-up. And yes some have made them work by cutting up a light and installing the articulating motor under the fender but basically they do not work. 04-05 lights are bad about the outer lens developing mini hairline cracks in the plastic look like chicken feet scratches. The 06 lights are known for the outer lens coming loose from the gray/green reinforcement and allowing water in the light before finally blowing off completely.
As stated before a recall on the 04-05 lights replaced the bulb holder which would get hot and melt the back of the housing on the headlight. This can be told by seeing the heatshrink on the wiring of the drl bulb socket
