"The reason I ask is that the XLR rests on a leaf spring suspension much like the current generation corvette(haven't peeked under a new vette yet, but seeing as it shares platforms with the XLR, I assume it's the same). The Sigma platform uses a double wishbone setup. They both share hydroformed railing, but other than that, I don't see much similarity in structure.
I know the Evoq concept was a Sigma vehicle, but I have my doubts that the XLR is..."
gothic you are absolutley right , corvette has always had a transverse leafspring since 1963 , xlr has it also
isnt the cts a unibody ?
if that guy is who he is then i would like to know what a platfrom or arcetecture is nowadays , im old school , i hear same "arcatecture" platform" i think i can take the body off one car and slap it on another (i can put a vette skin on a cts) ....with gmt360 its easy to understand but with epsilon it got confuseing and now with sigma im baffled ...even nissans "FM" is easy to understand
how does sigma differ from kappa ?

CTS is a unibody construction car. Most cadillacs are.

After about 2 months researching everything we were ever told/taught/instructed, I have to come back and post that, not knowingly, I was full of s**t. Sorry!
Seems the real lacking came straight from GM. There is such a confusing array of training information from various GM sources that it seems none of them are true.
So from what I can determine, the CTS and the XLR share nothing as far as underpinnings.
Daddy, am I am man now?

In the Portland area we have a lot of dealers playing the ADM game. I have never started negotiating at less than $1000 under sticker.
The only reason these dealers pull this crap is because there are a lot of clueless car buyers out there. Lots of them are people who purchase the car without driving it and are complete marks for the monthly payment approach.
I have usually found it nigh impossible to find a dealer who doesn't mark up. This last time, I dealt with a locator service after finishing my test drives. Got my best deal ever.

We currently have 2 XLRs on our floor which were cancelled orders. One is Xenon Blue with shale and the other is Light Platinum and Shale. We can sell them at MSRP. Anyone interested can E-mail Charlie at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I just attended a tour at the C-6/XLR plant in Bowling Green, KY last week. The tour was directed toward the C-6 for the most part, but "strayed" a little to the XLR line. They build a new vette every 5 min; the XLR comes off the line every 20. There isn't a XLR tour per se, but GM might start if enough interest is generated. There are two tours each day, at 9AM and 1PM. If you're in the area, check it out!

I was down there a year ago for the c5 tour , very awesome
They had a seperate line for XLR , Gm said nothing about the cars dureing the tour but i could clearly see northstars sitting in vette chassis with cadillac interior peices and diffrently shaped windshield frames

Allen Cadillac at Avery & I-5 in Laguna Niguel where the money is and I bought mine for $1.000 below MSRP and they have two sitting on the floor as I speak. This is a family owned store and I know every member of the family after 6 months of great service and the willingness to help. screw those LA car sharks.
