Well it ended up costing more because the 60 was the plate and then the Caddy logo had to go on it. By the time I was done it was not to far from 100.

No No No

On further review and reading the owner has made these, then blowing up the picture, these couldn't even be parked in the same driveway with my plate. I'll have to take a picture of mine , now that I have a 5.0 Pixel camera, then I'll put the setting on macro.:nono :nono :nono

No doubt but at 20-25% of the cost that would be like comparing any 20-25K car to the XLR. I've seen ones like yours for $350. but for hanging on your tail pipe some people might not want to spend several hundred and if it looks good, and lasts even half as long its is a good deal. :lurk

I don't quite understand. Why would anyone buy an expensive car and then hang dingle dong balls on it, mud flaps, and doggies in the back window that bob their heads & cheap imitations of good products?

I guess my answer would be, hang that plate on a 20%-25% car. I personally don't believe it belongs on an XLR. Bob

I understand your point. Just like the first out of the shoot will pay more to be first. You paid more for your exhaust plate and are enjoying it before anyone else. Now they are available for 40% less than you paid. But you enjoyed it. To each there own. Some buy Rolls Royces and don't keep them clean because to them it's just a car and they most likely made there money qwick or easy. Other's value an expensive car because it took a lot to afford it. Some believe that any modifications detract from the car. Hey these plates are all over the rear ends of Corvette's that cost 55-65K. And some who own XLR's are trying to figure out how to put Vette performance parts on there XLR so it doesn't bother them to do that. :lurk

Bob whatever. If you feel good about paying $600. for a chrome plate around your tail pipe that no longer shows, Great. Some will be happy spending $100 on there exhaust plate. I'm just glad everyone can be happy driving there XLR's! :lurk

First of all, I think we are in the wrong place to be discussing this subject. I wish it where daylight here, but I will take a good picture with my new 5.0 pixel Cannon camera, so you can see my $600 dollar exhaust plate that can be seen by anyone behind me, like SL500's. There was a day when I couldn't afford the first one out of the box. I'm sure some day you will too.

This was a thread I started to tell everyone of an exhaust plate that was available on Ebay. You jump in and turn it into defending your $600 exhaust plate and how it is the best. I don't know if you are trying to convince yourself or everyone else. If it is to convince you then fine if it is everyone else then give it up. To turn this entire thread into a debate about your wonderful best there is exhaust plate, well is ridiculous. Then to show everyone how little class you have you make the comment that someday I will be in that position not to afford the first one out of the box, is crazier. That's rich man envy talk. How immature at any age. Anytime I post a thread about exhaust plates you always jump in about yours. Well guess what I've seen yours. You offered to sell it to me for $600. and I did not think it was worth it and did not buy it. Now get over it and stop trying to convince the world about your exhaust plate. Move on. Why do you feel the need to insult me? All is said was you can no longer see yours and that was what you told me and posted here. Save the camera you bought yours and no one else thinks its worth $600. or it would have been sold by now, its only been a year! :banghead

Don't be discouraged Upstate, Bob can't help himself. In fact, I'm willing to bet Bob's plate still has the price tag attached so everyone will know he paid $600 for a $100 item.

Hey Bob - it's 5 megapixel and if you read the logo on the side of the camera, it most likely say "Canon"..................

I never was trying to sell it. Your the one that wanted to try and buy it, and you tried to steal it from me for a ridiculos price because you couldn't afford it, and can't afford a new XLR and had to buy a used one, like everythinbg else you buy. I have the pink slip, do you?
On top of that you accuse the dealer of ripping you off.
Still can't see this exhaust plate?

My God Bob, you really should follow your doctor's orders and take the pills every day. I read somewhere that it helps with the mood swings related to your Alzheimers.

I'm glad you posted the pictures for everyone to see. It looks a mess. Kind of the the person who couldn't deside which hat to wear so they wore both. Or better yet the person who wanted everyone to know they were rich so the husband and wife each drove there car to the party so everyone could see they had two nice cars! Trust me, people who have to go around telling everyone they're important aren't!
Oh and buy the way why do you repeatedly bring up the fact that you have "the pink" slip. Is it your first time to have it? Act like you've been there before Bob.

P.S. Bob no need to reply, we really don't care.

At the risk of "piling on"...

Bob-
You really shouldn't try to fight with everyone. Life's too short and its just not worth it.
