I'd estimate within the next two to two and a half years you should see the prices drop on '04s; once they hit $40k, I'll start getting interested enough to pick one up. Unfortunately, Cadillac isn't known for high resale value once the car gets a few miles and years put on them. If the XLR was a super-hot seller (it isn't) that might not hold true, but the dealers are having a tough time finding homes for them, with the exception of CA/FL where the better top-down weather and higher percentage of affluent buyers are located. Some dealers (check eBay) are offering them ('04s) for just over $60k with low miles. Be patient, they'll drop soon enough.
