xlr said:Am thinking of trading my XLR and C6 for XLR-V. love the ride of the xlr but not the handeling. and vice versa on my vette.
Anyone out there with some thoughts?
Xlr, i am only 15 but i have riden in all thre the C6 the XLR and the V i love all of them but i love the V cause your right its a sports car wiht luxrey and a great ride but everyone is right it is up to yo but i love the Vxlr said:Red V -
I have a 06 XLR and 06 C6. I have not test driven the XLRV. Is it basically a smoother riding Vette? The problem with the standard XLR is it lacks a sports car feel and handleing for me.
Which do you like better or which do you find yourself driving more?
jhiller said:I own both and enjoy both. My vette is a new convert w/6speed. It is very nice and exciting to drive. My V is a fantastic grand touring car. I like it better than the the Mercedes Sl 55 that I owned and drove for a year. The V is fast enough and beautiful to look at. I think it is the pinnacle of American car building. My day to day driver is a Caddy STS -4 which is a fabulous car too.
I think the XLR-V may be a tiny bit quicker to 60 mph than the Vette but I can't tell for certain
Bob,standby said:I agree with you and believe also that the V is faster to 60 or 90 than a stock Vette, but I'm not prepared to go any higher than that, since my ticket with a helo.
Since I put the switch in to keep my baffles open all the time, I've noticed much more response and by shifting to second at 5200, I get to keep out of the limiter in first gear.
I had a Maserati coupe try me the other day. I think he's at my dealer trading for the V he has on the floor. Really beat him bad
jhiller said:Where did you get baffle switch ?
I like the sound of that
It is just great to have a choice of sound note in a car and all you have to do is click a switch in the center console, like on Bob`s V.standby said:Here's a link to a picture. When you click on it it will take you to a post I put up about 5 months ago, Click on one of the links and it will take you to Photobucket.com where all my pictures are. If it doesn't load, click on the link that should be on your task bar, then click on thr right icon of the three that are on the picture and you will see all my picture posts. If this is to much I'll repost some pics and details. Ask Hans (Harry)from Germany how it sounds and feels.
