Just took the XLR in for some warranty to work. Brought up the issue of the hot console with the service manager and to prove the point handed him the mailbox key I keep in the console. He didn't drop it, but he wanted to.Was there anything done to control the heat radiating from the cup holders? I read that there was some insulting done, but was it by Cadillac or by the car owners. Thanks G. :confused

I did some research at the Vette sites and found this website: http://www.eliteengineeringusa.com/Thermal_Abs_Temp_Tests.html
I e-mailed them this question: I am having the same heat issues on my 2005 Cadillac XLR as the Corvettes. Do you have any idea if your product would also fit the XLR?
I received this reply: Thanks for your email. I'm still trying to determine if the XLR has the same tunnel area as the Corvette. If so, one of our Thermal-Abs Tunnel Plates will do a great job. In addition, you may want to look at Dynamat or Frost King Insulation.
I have tried to find out if the plates are the same, but haven't had any luck so far.
The cup holders would work good to keep your coffee hot :glolI am in W. Memphis right now at the hotel. While driving up here from Texas I have taken a few temp. readings on the cup holders and console.
The temp outside was 98 on my nav display and the cup holders were 105, drivers side of console was 104. Engine temp was about 195-200.
When the outside temp. got to 108 my cup holders were 115 and the console was 109, motor temp 210-220...
I hope something will work for this.
