I was married to my wife 2 years ago August, 2017. I bought her a 2004 Cadillac XLR for a wedding gift in Xenon Blue with black interior. It only has 37,367 miles and has been slightly modified and usually only drive on weekends and to car shows. So far, it has had only 2 major repairs.
2004 Cadillac XLR (Xenon Blue)
The engine cover has been painted both Silver and Zenon Blue as well as the fuse box cover. The 2 stock air filters have been replaced with K & N Air Filters.
The black interior was too dark and neither one of liked it so for the next 2-3 months I had the interior changed completely from black to the only other color offered that year in Shale,
I also added a XLR-V hood and front bumper grille and a rear bumper from a XLR model sold in 2008 or 2009 called the Special Edition. It has 2 painted pinstripes on each side in pink and light grey.
When I replaced the complete interior, I also replaced all the speakers in the car as well with OEM speakers-11 speakers I believe.
Replaced all 4 electric Bilstein shock absorbers with OEM replacements.
Wheel and Tire
Added new Michelin tires, Premium LTX tires and new aftermarket 60th Anniversary chrome Corvette wheels.
