Hi Mahme,mahme said:Hey Harry,
Where do you bring your XLR for maintenance, parts... Over in France, we have to go to Opel. The open next to where I live has just started offering Cadillac service, but it takes a while to get appointments because of all the Opels....
Hi Aviator,aviator said:Interesting....service being done by Opel.
I suppose the connection is through the Catera - now Cadillac CTS, was originally built by Opel in Germany.
Here in the States, the average GM service techs at Cadillac dealers are seeing so few XLRs that they can't possibly have any familiarity with them. The exception of course is "our own" Allen Kuberish (Mr XLR). While not a service tech, he is certainly goes the extra mile in knowing everything there is to know about our cars. This forum is full of posts about service experiences where the tech was servicing his first ever XLR.

For that reason, I think our EuroXLR drivin' brethren (like Harry) lose nothing by having Opel maintain their cars instead of Mr. Goodwrench
