Thanks!

I like the shift plate and metal-looking ring on the seat.

It'd be a pain to do rotations since the wheels are directional?!

Everything else goes to the 07
Additionally, also prefer the '08 in for the lighted door sills and relocated fuel/trunk buttons. Otherwise the other stuff is take-it-or-leave-it...

I can't believe that they are still using Yokohama tires on the '08,after all the complaints.

I want to buy the side mirrors of the 08 and put them on my 07. Other then that, I cant really see any big differences that would be noticable to people

Default 2008 vs. 2007

Do you guys realize how much these small changes would cost on a Mercedes or BMW? At least 2 grand or more. The lighted Lexus sill would be a $500 add-on alone. The auto-dimming side view mirrors? Another $500 minimum.

The cost of a new 2008 vs. a 2007 is only about $1500-$2,000 more. Money well spent in my opinion based on these upgrades. I do agree the extra chrome in the front was a down grade for 2008. The steering wheel seems just fine to me and I prefer the 2008 version (my opinion).

Overall more value for just a few dollars more (MSRP) than 2007. Nice job Lexus.
