I have the XLR V and it's an amazing car. It really hugs the road and has more power and ease than anything I have ever driven before.
Pros: HART TOP CONV, HEADSUP INSTRUMENTS AND THE POWER.
Cons: TIME IT TAKES TO OPERATE THE TOP.
Advice: DRIVE IT AND HAVE FUN. IT DOES NEED BETTER SOUND, SO CHANGE THE EXHAUST.I HAVE BACK PROBLEMS AND STILL FIND THIS CAR VERY COMFORTABLE. THE PERFORMANCE IS EXCELLANT, BUT I WOULD LIKE MORE HORSEPOWER. THAT IS JUST A PERSONAL THING. IT HAS PLENTY. I DID CHANGE THE RIMS AND TIRES, BUT I CAN'T GET AWAY FROM PEOPLE RUNNING OVER WHEN I PARK OR WHEN I GO TO THE CAR, TO PRAISE AND GET DETAILS ABOUT THIS MACHINE. I THINK THE CAR IS JUST BEAUTIFUL AND TEENAGERS TO OLD LADYS AGREE. I EVEN HAD SOMEONE ACTUALLY RUN ACROSS THE PARKING LOT WAVING THIER ARMS WILDLY, JUST TO ASK ME ABOUT THE CAR. I LOOK RATHER INTIMIDATING, BUT THAT DOESN'T STOP THEM. WITH THE TRACTION CONTROL OFF AND THE LARGER TIRES, IT IS JUST BARLEY GETTING TRACTION WITH FULL THROTTLE. YOU CAN HEAR A SLIGHT SOUND OF LOOSE TIRES AND TWO LIGHT BLACK LINES ON THE ROAD, IF YOU HAVE TIME TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR. IT TAKES ABOUT 30 SECONDS THE PUT THE TOP UP OR DOWN. THAT SEEMS TO BE ABOUT AVERAGE COMPARED TO OTHER CARS, BUT I WOULD LIKE IT TO BE FASTER. IT IS A VERY, VERY FUN CAR TO DRIVE, EXCEPT FOR THE ONLOOKERS. I ALSO HAD TO CHANGE THE EXHAUST TO GET A BETTER SOUND. THAT AGAIN IS A PERSONAL THING.
