I bought a 2009 XLR-V today! I'm thrilled, it's one pretty machine. I pick it up on Tuesday and will post some pics later. It's Crystal Red Tintcoat with Cashmere interior and chrome wheels. It has 13 miles on it and I can't wait to get her broke in so I can put it through some paces.

Yeah, I kept the Vette. I'm putting a 4 post lift in my garage next week so I can stack the Vette over the XLR-V. I will change the avatar when I get some pics of the XLR-V. I'll be sure to post my review on the car after I get a few hundred miles on her. I got to check out a 2009 platinum edition XLR in the showroom today and that is a very sharp ride as well.

Yeah, when I told my wife I was looking to buy a XLR-V, the first thing she said was "I can't believe you are thinking of selling your Vette". I tell her, "no I have no plans to sell the Vette". Then she says, "I'm not parking my car outside" and that's when I hit her with the second surprise, "I'm getting a lift so we can put all three cars in there". She just shakes her head and says "whatever makes you happy, just don't think I'm parking my car outside". :) She's a keeper...

Thanks again Bruce for your help during my XLR-V research!

More HP

Welcome aboard the V train. Well Tim, after the first of the year you'll be looking to do some nasty things to the V, but there are very few, but I think I can give you a few tips for very little cost. How about 120 more HP for about $500 without changing out your exhaust but still getting a nice sound while idling for only $5.00 and be able to make it sound like a mouse whenever you want. Most know what I've done so if you want to do a PM to me, I can give you some blow by blow instructions with pics. The only other cost will be getting the shift points dropped about 200 RPM's which should be a cheap thing to do at any speed shop. The reason you have to have the shift points changed is because your HP will go to 565 HP and will barbel when you hit the top of each gear which will make it fall flat on it's face then the front comes up like a submarine surfacing but the guy next to you has moved ahead of you by then. We can't have that.
Enjoy your New Year and hope to see you at RIVerwalk in San Antonio in June. That would be or Rendezvous IV, just so happens that the Riverwalk starts with RIV.
Yup... I'm a slow learner, but got it right the second time around... :love: :cool:
