I enjoyed my first Cadillac XLR, a 2004 model, so much that traded it in for a new 2005 model! I have been a Chevrolet Corvette nut for many years (from 1965 on - and have owned several). The XLR fits better for comfort and style. Instead of the old Corvette wave, the XLR demands the ogle of admiration from those who see it on the road. There still are not very many out there.
The looks and sytle, it grabs attention!
Give it bigger trunk space, I cannot get my golf clubs in with top down, like I could in a Mercedes-Benz. Put the XM antenna in a better location and make it look nicer.
