Wanting those of u in the North that r awaitng your XLR that the car is 100% superior to my 98 vett conv when driving in winter conditons. So don't be afraid to take it out in the winter, u will be pleased!
All I can say is it's like night and day between the vette and the XRL--and even better I have my Vette stored till spring so I don't have to deal with here in the Windy (and extremely cold and snowy) City
There is a bright side. All of you in the warm states have already had it all with the car. Those in the snow belt have yet to have the top down, which come spring will add an extra dimension to an already cool ride. It's like the car is really great, and it will get even better. Plus, this week we can drive snowmobiles on public roads, I don't that's happening in Florida.
:nopity I'm with 1_XLR out here in warm and sunny California. Those things that Ex.SLer mention sure beat tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, hailstorms and salt on the road, etc. By the way, I'm an ex-SLer too.
I drive my 03 Corvette Coupe in all kinds of weather, including snow, with no problems whatsoever. The tires are the key. Goodyear makes a winter run flat tire for the Vette. I have them on my C5 and they give me tons of traction. Don't forget to put about 50 lbs. of added weight in the hatch area and your good to go.
