    The problem with the Mercedes SL55 AMG is getting it to the strip to race. If it gets there without breaking, you will lose. I don't think by much though... I know the STS-V is a little quicker than the S55 though.

    Read motortrend yet, XLR is just as fast to 60 and they test a "preproduction" V I can tell ALL OF YOU I have now owned this car for 30 day's have 1100 miles and its broken in and getting faster eveyday. Nothing has held a candle to it yet, NOTHING and let me tell you they are all trying, last one came charging up on me at about 75 80 I waited it he was right next to me and matched his speed and took off to 115 like it was nothing WOW. Its truley an amazing engine.

    On the Z06, all you have to do is pull a fuse to get the exhaust to stay open. It's under the passenger floor mat, bottom right, and it's marked "spare." Wonder if the XLR-V is set up the same way. For my Z06, I bought a switch from LG Motorsports and now I can turn the exhaust bypass on and off as I wish.

    Sounds like a kicka$$ ride Dan. Congrats! I wish I could have something like that. But right now Im fine with the Eldo. Start modding. The basics. K&N, exaust, etc. Just enough to take that AMG on the other side of town A suggestion to everyone: I recently bought the turbonator for my Eldorado. Im getting about 4 miles more per gallon and I have noticed a improvement in acceleration. Its only 60 bucks. www.Turbonator.com

    And you better watch out, those guy accross the net at www.cadillacowners.com, I see they like to come on here occasionally. Beware of the Mark VIII's, according to the Lincoln guys over there, they're the fastest cars on the street today yah know Better hope you don't pull up next to one of those. Haha.

    FIRST: I have allways had fast cars, from Trans AM's, G35 Coup, Corvettes C5's and Regular XLR , THIS THING IS SCARRY FAST. I have never driven a car like this before. NEVER.

    Second: Its like night and day compared to my 05 XLR (silver) . The build quality is getting better, Not that my 05 is bad in anyway The "V" is just tighter. They differenc in the ride and handeling is amazing ( not to happy with brakes at 30 miles but the Crossed drilled ones need time to break in now it stops on a dime now that they are broken in.

    Third: The engine sound is just to die for, PERFECT in evey way to refined and quite to WOT WOW WOW WOW the muffler bypass works awesome.
    Power delvery is just wow at 2000 rpm the car pulls to 60 get on it just a little and tap the supercharger and your in the seat.

    Fourth: The SEATS the inserts keep you in the seat amazingly like velcro. The interior ( i have black ) is awesome. The seat heaters are by far hotter then the 05 Xlr i have. It was 43 degrees out tongiht and we drove with the top down and the seats on and the heat at 85 with no jackets and never cold even at 70 mph. Its gona suck in the summer but owell Hope the cooling is even better. The hand stiched dash is cool. The "V" on dash and sills is cool. The car is the same but just different enough to let you know its a killer.

    Fifth: The new TRANS is the best they have every made, its still learning "ME" but adapting quickley, 6 speeds and you can never tell what gear you are in. the 6th on the high way is gona help MPG and there is no way this thing is not going to or get better on the highway, For the short time I have driven it. Its getting 13.7 MPG and thats with stopming on it from time to time.

    Sixth the adaptive lighting at night ROCKS every car should have this its amazing.

    This list will go on and on but its 2:30 and i have driving it since 5:00 and I am ready for bed...

    Will post more or answer anyones questions. IF you have one on order hang in there it will be in soon. ITs worth the wait and the MSPR. best of all Its american made performance! Finaly GM has gotten this one right. It will be a AMG killer. NO doubt. 0 to 60 Feels like 4.0 sec flat. and no power fall off when it shifts its like the never ending power band.

    THIS IS THE "OTHER" Z06 just with a lot more manners.

    Danny
    I read this three years later and realize how happy i was with this car and how UNhappy I am with the 2009 CTS-V I think I need to get a XLR-V again,

    Why are you unhappy with the new CTS-V? Can you point me to your discussion on it? Actually, I found it here:

    Shouldn't you wait and find out if it's an issue with your particular car vs the model before wanting to go back to a slower car with less room ? Even if it's not just your car and perhaps a design of the 09vs exhaust that you're not pleased with, why not just have the exhaust changed or modified to your liking vs crapcanning an entire car that otherwise you don't seem to have issue with ?
