First off my father owns a new xlr-v in infared and it is a great car, but I think that cadillac missed the mark. The car should have more power and torque. Yes I know the car is lighter then an SL55, but I feel they should have found a way to keep the 469 that the sts-v has. Also, the cars brakes aren't that good. I can't figure out why as the Z51 brakes on the vette are awesome. The pedal feel on the V is the worst. Also, cadillac should have a panoramic roof. While the interior is nicer on the V it is still so far from the europeans it is not even funny. Don't even get me started on the tires and wheels. There is no reason why the backs are only 255s!! They should be at least 275 maybe wider. I am a little let down by how the car has turned out. Anyone else share my views?
