Hello XLR netters, we are still here, however July has been a busy month for us.There are only two season in the "Great White North" construction and winter. Back from a weeks holidays,& love the car even more. We are still planning on going to CO. Still have not really looked at hotels yet. Driving condtions in late May can bring perfect driving condtions to snow. Hopefully May 2010 will be good.

My one question when using the Adaptive Cruise and you come up on slower moving traffic ( which most of it is right?) and the car brakes it's self, do the brake lights come on the warn the people behind you that you are slowing down?

On a side note, I was not suprised when an 07 Mustang GT 500 Shelby beat me, but he was surprised at how well I kept up. It was a different story on a twisting mountain road, kicked him in the twisties, but what I gained he got back on the straight aways. Either way it was a blast.

Glad to see that you are back. You've been missed. Yes, your brake lights do come on when the adaptive cruise slows you down.
Look forward to seeing you in Colorado.

Kathy :cool:

It has been a busy summer. Every chance I got we drove the XLR. Put a whopping 5,000 miles on it. Now with winter just around the corner it's time to put it away. The white stuff is going to be way too soon. See you all in CO.
