I'm tempted...though I'd really love to find a Saks limited edition in white diamond tricoat
If I had a silver or white ELR, I’d mimic the Championship Edition look. Gunmetal Gray grill, deep purple (instead of maroon) mirrors and accents along with gray, silver, black, and white stripes.I would black out the chrome trim, wrap the roof black, black out the grill, no front plate, black rear plate and I would keep the stock 20's and paint them gloss black instead of having 22's.
But this thing is totally striking. A true head turner. Once my Volt is up in January it's either an ELR or a used Tesla. ELR is very tempting though... even though I'd prefer more EV range... I've been looking at them every day for the past few weeks
I’d be willing to trade my 3/4 ton Suburban with tons of ground clearance for your ELR. I’d accept the occasional scraping for the sexy look of the ELR any day. 5 years after my volt purchase, I really regret not holding out for a discounted ELR as I could have waited 2 years for prices to plummet. I had no idea we would be empty nesters 3 years earlier than planned - that tidbit would have sealed the deal.I couldn't handle the ELR being any lower. I already hit or drag all the time going anywhere in Florida no less. My FIL house in NC I could only get up the driveway in reverse AND slicing it sideways to not just drag but bottom out and nearly tear off the front end. Backing out straight even the back end was going to scrape. took 2-3 minutes of careful work anytime I needed to leave to navigate it without damage.
I'll second that opinion,,really glad I got my 16.and as said,,I couldn't imagine going lower around here.hell,I'm doing my driveway and will be modifying the end of my driveay.car scrapes 90% of the time now.So, Get one.

I’m of the mindset that I’m not going to throw away a perfectly good car just because I want something else. Decades ago my wife and I made the mistake of trading in a new car that she drove for 2 years, and the dealership made money off of us coming and going. Never again!!! Today we drive the cars into the ground, eeking out every bit of depreciation we lost in the transaction - so effectively, we pay 100% depreciation at the purchase. So the only way I part with my volt prior to the end of its useful life is if it gets stolen or t-boned and totaled. This mindset has prevented me from a lifetime of leasing or borrowing beyond my means to get a new car every few years (a bad habit most Americans have) allowing me to join the double comma club well in advance of retirement. Delaying pleasure to achieve long-term goals will mean compounding interest is working for me, instead of against me. Don’t worry, my vehicles are still very nice, and someday i’ll likely blow 6 figures on a supercar or two. I’m just waiting for the nest egg to double one more time. Given how the market has done the last week or so, hopefully it’s sooner rather than later.So, Get one.
Nice... if you blacken all the chrome, then I could say “Lord Vader, your vehicle is ready”<excuse to go get a pic of my car while it's raining and looks clean >
