    Re: 2009 Xlr-v

    Some of the things that make it different are the following:
    Exhaust Manifolds are much different. The XLR-V's exhaust manifold has a wicked kink on one of the banks. Very pinched off system!!! The STSV for the most part is pretty straight forward with its exhaust manifolds. The XLRV also uses a slightly different tune. You can very easily pick up that 26 HP through a tune. Also the air intake system is different. XLRV uses twin filter design located on the front of the car and the STSV uses a single filter. Those are just some of differences to why one makes more power than the other.

    Just FYI - From a tuning standpoint we can actually make more usable HP & TQ with the XLR-V application!

    Thanks,

    Don't they have the same engine and drive train?

    Why is the XLR-V down 26 Hp?

    Thanks,

    Ok, just got a confirmation from the dealership in AZ. They already had their 2009 online maintenance book for all vehicles. Definitely showing the minor exterior upgrades, but the interior is identical except for Bluetooth being added. NO MENTION of engine modifications or suspension or other performance upgrades. Only notable change was what is already known exterior-wise, and Bluetooth….

    There are several interior changes for 09- new wood trim, redesigned window switches and mirror controls (ditched the old "rocker" switches), Corvette style font on the gauges to replace the BVLGARI, and a few others.

    My sources tell me your NLRGD FNT button is stuck, but maybe I'm just drunk and I've fallen forward...

    what do the discounts on 2008's look like nowadays?

    my 2002 SL500 isn't thrilling me like it used to, and i'm liking the porsche cayman S, but the XLR-v still owns my heart ($5/gallon gas be damned!).

    Re: 2009 Xlr-v

    Hello,
    Just my .02 cents....I see XLR-V's everyday. Living in socal I also see the Porsches quite often. However ANYTIME I see an XLR or XLR-V on the street it ALWAYS commands my attention because it is such a dynamic looking vehicle. If you can get your hands on one of those, that would be the way to go IMO.

    Good luck!

    Thanks,

    Dr. Design

    Don't know why, but I've always assumed D3 was located in Michigan. You guys are in So. Cal? If so, where? I'd love to pop by your shop and see what you guys do to V-series cars in there!
