    Here we go again...Am I missing a panel or soft cover at the rear of the trunk to hide all of the trunk operating system!!
    I hope the picture shows it! I took it to My dealer today and there were mixed opinions by the mechanics and parts guys!!
    Any ideas?
    Thanks...Hubbel

    There's a fabric net-like material that covers all of that in the earlier models... but at some point it was deleted. Nobody knows why... but I understand you can buy the net from an earlier model and install it in the newer models. But to answer your question - in an '08 model, yes you are supposed to see all of that.

    My 2008 XLR-V looks just like the photo of yours too!
    No cover for the trunk/roof operating system on mine either.

    Hey Guys...
    Thanks so much for the replys! Who would think that a GM vehicle with a list price that the XLR V Had would not cover all that STUFF!!!
