Picked up my new 2006 XLR-V on January 2nd. Although the car is awesome I have had to remind the selling dealer that a full detail should have been done as well as a walk around inspection. With a couple chipped wheels and a bunch of light scratches found after I got home, I am faced with a 250 mile round trip for the fix or have one of their reps come by the house to pickup for a day or two. Neither choice is acceptable with a Caddy dealer 5 miles from my house.
With all this happening I have managed to get the windows tinted and yesterday had the iPOD interface installed (SMART PARK GMCL21600). My first gen iPOD would shut down when the interface was plugged in but a friends NANO seemed to work. However, not realizing the NANO was in SHUFFLE mode all I could do was track up or down. Not sure how many other commands can be controlled on the in dash touch screen. I plan to pickup a 30GB iPOD; will advise performance. One thing I have noticed is you have to remember to turn down the volume when switching FROM XM to FM bands.
With just 550 miles I jump in the car this morning and just about every warning on the DIC display came up. The top was down and wouldn't move. The gas analog gas gauge was at empty, etc , etc, etc. So I take the car to the local dealer and they think needs a new ECM. Of course they have to order it so I am in a rental all weekend. Hope this isn't related to the iPOD interface install!
Although I just traded in a nearly problem free 2005 Corvette, the XLR ROCKS! Can't wait for the next mod....Come on Corsa...keep your promise!
