Not so sure I agree with that. It looks different. I like the brushed silver accents on the door pulls and the sides of the console. True, I have never seen an '09 in person, only in pictures, but from what I've seen, I'm completely happy with the interior of my '08. I do however, prefer the controls for the moon roof on the '09, and the lighted outside mirror controls would be nice.
Actually, I sat in an '09 at the dealer's last week. Maybe, I'm just used to mine by now, but, IMHO, I like the interior of the '08 better. The center stack is too shiny and is now darker than the dash cover, the chrome trim is a bit much, and I do miss my brushed metal accents. As I said, it's just my opinion, but I'm very happy with the interior of the '08 - except the Moonroof control. In that regard he '09 is better, as well as having the lighted outside mirror control.
Personally I prefer the color of the '08 center console, but wish that I had the moon roof controls the '09 does.
Any idea how much it would cost to just upgrade the moon roof controls?
Anyway I'm new here I bought mine in early 08 then got stationed in Korea at the end of the year and wasn't able to bring it with. I started missing mine so much I went looking around and found this place, now I can live viciously through you guys till I return in 188 days
Lou that's very nice to hear. In Qatar I won't be seeing any 08s or 09s when I receive my F it'll be the only one in Qatar. I know there are about 3 or 4 in the Emirates all 08s though and they're selling them at crazy prices one of which was sold for about 115k!!
