Heated Steering Wheel!

I had a heated steering wheel on my Infiniti I35, and I really miss it on my XLR!!!

I also heard the Escalade has heated AND cooled cup holders. Why can't they offer that on the XLR?

I'd like a button for accessory mode separate from the off switch.
Best of all would be a six speed manual transmission.

"XLR" emblems that don't snag cleaning cloths! Some idiot designed the current ones and how they're mounted. It's a miracle we haven't ripped one off considering the number of times we've caught terry cloths on them.

Best regards,

I removed mine, rear and sides. I think they're distracting

I'm sure this is for safety but a button in the car to close the trunk. I'm thinking of wireing one off the button in the trunk.

Windscreen

How 'bout a pop up rear wind screen - like the one on the Bimmer 6 series.
My ball cap is getting gamey...

I love the idea of a six (or seven) speed transmission, but how about paddle shift on the steering wheel?

Scroll on Nav

I'd like the ability to scroll across the Nav screen. Every other one I have has that function.

Also, I like the other mentions:

Wind screen
Bluetooth (although this would lead to competition for Onstar)

More for me:

a better function and visibility of back-up monitor (or rear camera)
autostart
raise or lower top remotely

I can usually close the trunk from the car by pressing the switch to raise the top.

Tell me more! You mean if you push the raise the top button the trunk will close? What do you mean usually? I'm assuming you mean you have to have it in park? :party

I opened the trunk as normal from the rear, then got in the car and put it in accessory mode. Pushed the top up button, both side windows went down, the trunk closed, and then I got the "BEEP". Then I opened the trunk from the button on the dash, and went through the same routine, and everything worked the same. And by pushing the top up button again within 5 seconds after the "BEEP", both side windows went up.

You are right I just did the same myself. Great info. Thanks!

1) Rearview camera - display either in the Nav LCD or a Rearview mirror mounted LCD. I really miss that from my wife's Infiniti.

2) More use of the HUD - navigation information for a start

3) Better voice recognition (include "top down" assuming the voice recognition is accurate enough)

4) Bluetooth connectivity

5) Remote engine start

That's about it for me...
