Hello,
I have a couple of issues with our 2004 xlr.
The car has 16000 miles.
The only modifications we have made are Corsa exhaust, and K&N air filters.
We love this car, and would not trade it for the world.
The first issue is with the original wheels.
I just came in from cleaning the car, and noticed that 2 of the wheels on the same side, seem to be pealing their skin in a couple of places, about the size of a quarter. Are these wheels clear coated at the factory? And if so, has anyone else experienced this problem?
Is this a warranty issue?
Second, whenever my wife drives the car with the air conditioning on, she notices a strange odor when the ac starts up, even after turning off the the air recirculator. It goes away after 15-20 seconds. Anyone else had this problem?
Well, that is about it. We have had the usual top problems, along with the DRL burning out, but it is a labor of love.
Thanks for the help.

Scott,
I for one have after market rims on my 04 and my 06-V so I can't fully address this issue, but I would think they are coated, but a nice touch would be to chrome them. I would think with only 16,000 miles your dealer would address both problems without hesitation.
Others may follow with advice.

I would expect the wheels to be replaced under warranty.
Your inside cabin air filters should have been replaced at 10,000 miles, if they wern't that may help the odor problem. this is a free service.... with your oil changes. Good luck

Have you heard from Volant or is this a no go?
