2004 Black XLR
Hi Folks,

I just got a 2004 black on black XLR with 46k miles delivered yesterday at 6 pm. It is as close to perfect (so far) as possible. I joined the forum to learn as much as I can about modifications and kick everyone's brains for what works and doesn't work on these cars. I was on the forum for about two weeks every day before I decided to get this car. I thought that the XLR's are extremely undervalued and probably will shoot up in price over the next couple years (hopefully). I think it has enormous potential.

I plan to black everything out (chrome, grill, wheels and badges), I would also like to blackout or wrap all of the wood in the interior (please don't hate me) , update all the lighting to LED, update the entertainment and navigation system, add a set of 20 inch staggered wheels, I may go 19 in front and 20 in the back with 8.5 fronts and 9.5-10 in the back. and I want to figure out a way to add a spoiler in front and rear. Also tune it, Magnaflow exhaust and add a rear sway bar. I know it may seem like a pretty long list but you gotta have goals. I AM OPEN TO ANY SUGGESTIONS OR IDEA'S. I do not want to repeat anyone mistakes and I don't need to learn the "hard way". I would also like to save time and MONEY so feel free to send me suggestions.

I will try to document my changes with pictures and will post them as I take them. I will be doing most of the work myself so I realize it will take time and I am not in a rush

About me personally; I live in Studio City California and work as a Chiropractor in Beverly Hills. I am Very happily married with 2 great kids, an 18 year old boy who is a freshman at Chapman University in the business program and a 16-year-old girl who is a junior in high school. So obviously I can take suggestions and criticisms without getting mad.

I look forward to reading your comments and suggestions.

Dr Dan

Welcome Dr. Dan!

There are a couple of SFV locals that are in this club with us. I live up in Granada Hills but I'm in the North Hollywood /Studio City all the time. I have an '06 Series also Black/Black.

I don't know about investment potential, but I have never enjoyed driving a car more than my XLR.

Here's to many years of enjoyment you. Perhaps our paths will cross one day.

Stay Cool [emoji267][emoji41][emoji267]

Welcome Aboard

Welcome to The XLR Net! Great cars and good folks here. After bouncing around the country in past years, I emigrated to Colorado from Westlake Village CA. For too long I was part of the subculture on the #5 and #405 going in and out of Civic Center 2X's per day. Again, welcome Doc.
