The XLR is a great car! We have an 04 Satin Nickel that we love very much. Have you driven one yet? There is a lot of information for you to access and learn more about our great cars! Have fun shopping. Mea
The XLR is produced on a continous improvement platform, which means during the model year, many improvements and upgrades are added as the vehicle goes through it's production process. Since you are looking to purchase an XLR the outward looks pretty much kept the same look from 2004/2008 (non XLR-V). The interior had a few enhancements in 2006 and the chassis, suspension and transmission were upgraded in 2007 and 2008 had some interior enhancements as well.
Regardless of which year you decide on if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
