    Air Intake Shroud 001 [1024x768].JPG

    This is a picture of the part label on the underside of my air intake shroud/cover.
    The number on the label is: #3090111.
    That should be the part number.
    Good luck!

    Those look nice! Much improvement over the dull black pedals. Does the floor cover make it slippery at all?

    Thanks for the compliment.
    I think they look much better than the stock pedals too.
    For a $100K vehicle, Cadillac should have included them.

    Actually the shiny textured heel guard w/domed inserts aren't too slippery at all.

    CORSA INSTALL OUT 2.jpg[IMG][/IMG]CORSA INSTALL TAKING OUT THE OLD.jpgCORSA INSTALL OUT WITH THE OLD.jpgCORSA INSTALL OUT 2.jpgCORSA INSTALL ONE OF THE NEW.jpgCORSA INSTALLED 2.jpgCORSA INSTALL WITH BRACKET FROM ORIG SYSTEM TO FIT FACTORY BOLTS.jpgTo continue the saga...I had the complete Corsa System #14156 put in Friday! It took about 2 hours and the only snag was they had to cut the bracket from the origional system by the H piping and Mig weld it ahead of the Corsa bracket to meet the factory hanging springy bolts!!
    Also the day before that I installed the D3 Stage one intake system using the origional accordian rubber tubing to hook it up! Piece of cake!
    It sounds a little loud when I push it but perfectly quiet when cruising! Very well designed! Score another one for CORSA!

    Well...The XLR V rides a little stiffer and has the perelli run flats which seem to ride harder anyway! It does not spin the rear tires when I get on it...It just goes!!
    I wouldn't mind finding tires the would give me a softer ride, but these are so new it wil have to wait!
    It also so sits verrry low and is a project to get in and out!
    Since these are so rare...I get plenty of looks!

    Congrats, looks awesome!

    Love the windscreen, but I've had trouble contacting D3cadillac about buying a windscreen... Seems unprofessional to me, wish we had more options or companies willing to work on the V series.

    BOYCHIKS,

    Try Windrestrictor.com.
    They made the windrestrictor for my XLR-V.

    You deal directly with the manufacturer and have many options to choose from.

    The WindRestrictor looks and feels like it belongs with the car.
