Just broke 200 miles on the new XLR - almost caused several accidents as other drivers scrambled to see what sort of vehicle I was driving - quite a number of thumbs up and wow's - the stereo system even with the top down is incredible completely superior to that of the C5 Convertible Corvette that I traded (it had a Bose) and even my 2 Escalades (ESV and EXT). I just love this CAR!!! Hopefully this weekend it will be sunny and I will snap a few picks of the light platinum/shale XLR for posting/viewing. My daughters 12 and 14 really love the car as well - my wife teasingly made a comment indicating she thought the car looked like a Grand Am - perhaps I can check her resale value as well this weekend (grin). Lastly, the XM1 station "The 70's" is simply wonderful as well!!
