Was just perusing the March, 2007 Corvette Magazine and on page 50, there is an article entitled Balancing Act. It's supposed to be a comparison between the Z06, a BMW M6 and the XLR-V. In reality, it's a comparison between the Z06 and the M6 with just part of a page devoted to the XLR-V. Most of the verbiage about the XLR-V is negative. They cite poor fit and finish, use of cheap materials in the interior despite the price of the car, stiff suspension, weight versus the Z06, lack of paddle shifters and a slow transmission. I also noticed a link on the XLR-V forum on cadillacforums.com that points to a video that's not very flattering, either. The link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgZNj7JcTlM. Anyway, Il haven't driven my V that much but so far, I really like it. Was just wondering what others thought about all of this negative publicity. If I recall, the Corvette wasn't perfect 3 years into its life, either, and it's taken it 50+ years to get where it is now.
