new owner, new member
Just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself as a new XLR owner and a new member here. I picked up a 2004 XLR on December 24th - my first Cadillac but not my first roadster as I previously owned a AMG SL500. Currently in my garage I have a Honda Element, Subaru Forester and three motorcycles (BMW K1300R, Harley RoadKing, KTM 640 Adventure). My intent is to use this as my daily driver during spring, summer and fall.
The car looks to be in great condition with only 63,000km on it, but I will know more once I get it into a local Cadillac dealer for a full inspection & service. I'm interviewing both local Cadillac dealers tomorrow to decide which one I want to use going forward. I picked the car up at such a great price (nobody is buying roadsters in the middle of winter in Alberta!) that I won't mind if I need to put some money back into it.
I saw a mostly complete set of maintenance records so there shouldn't be too many surprises, but I do see that the headlamps need to be replaced so that's a couple grand right there. I want to make some esthetic changes to it and upgrade the brakes, wheels and tires.
I'm likely going to initially post at both XLR forums until I get a feel for both and decide on which feels best.
