Oh and nice to see a member from another forum I frequent (LS1tech.com).
Yeah I think I will see about picking up those used XV's. My only concern is I am 99% sure I'll want to upgrade them at some point...and then it's $500 on top of about a $200 time/money/effort estimate of going and getting them...(I swear that's how the # worked out before this started going down haha) which puts me even with a new, fully warrantied pair. Does the warranty re-up once you upgrade? I'll ask Tom...
I ran away from LS1Tech in a hurry. I actually specifically bought my current car because there was ZERO aftermarket for it...because I know how I am...I had about 5k already planned out in upgrades before I had the car I wanted, thanks to ls1tech...and if there is one thing more than HT stuff my wife just doesn't get the need to spend money on...it's car parts lol. I nearly fully bolted/tuned my last car and managed to get out before the big upgrades came (bigger turbos (and all the supporting mods for that)). Issue with all of the above? I should've just bought the car I wanted because I've managed to find the only two mods for my Genesis sedan (exhaust...K&N lol) and I can't take it anymore. Should've got the CTSV wagon in the first place and been done with it. I'm only prolonging the inevitable...if I talk anymore about selling my car and buying that wagon...my wife may actually stab me haha...jk

Additionally he doesn't oversell his products (I can in fully ready to get dual XV30se's and he talked me down to xv15se's based on my situation).
Of those choices, personally I would either grab the xv15's and stick with the original hardware, or just buy brand new xv15se's (nothing beats brand spanking new!). Either way talk with Tom about these options and he will provide great insight for you.
Happy hunting sir!
Edit: regarding upgraditis, I've determined that never goes away, no matter what I get there is always that nagging feeling there is "more". Just look at the guy here that has four Triax's!
I have talked to Tom a few times now; and he's been most helpful. He also suggested the XV15se vs the XS30se route. My room is actually pretty small, and even when we open it up by knocking the wall down it will only grow to medium.
We just got our escrow refund from the house we recently sold...I swear I have 3rd degree burns on my leg
Anyway, I tend to be a bit long-winded. Thank you for your advice, gentlemen. good day!
