I had a few people that wanted to put the Carbon Fiber into their IS350's, and to do all the parts on the inside, it was over $4 grand !

That looks great...wonder if there is a way to get that on an 08!!
You can but it would be very pricey. It involves having to replace the whole center dash cluster. That alone is $5k.

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.

The 09 really is nicer but I could save about 10k on the 08 so I thought it wasn't that worthwhile as long as performance is not different...

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 :(

Adding my 2 cents...

I love the '08 moon roof controls. Also, if the center console is shiny (which is what I think when I hear "piano black"), is it a fingerprint-magnet? That would drive me nuts.

I also dislike chrome -- if I had my way I would have liked the shifter to have a brushed metal finish.

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!!
