Is there much of a change in 09 coming? I really am not wanting to spend over 31,000 on one.if youre deciding between 06-08, id go with 08. theres nothing significant that changed. one of the selling points for myself on a 2008 model would be HIDs (almost always standard) and the liquid graphite finish on the 18s.
also, if you purchased used youd be the second owner, kinda sucks for resell, so id go with new. according to a few salesman at my dealership nows the time to start buying the cars before the 09s come out.
Sterling always came with black (in the ISx50 anyway)On sterling too.
Hi... I'm getting myself in the IS350 market (determining if a used or a new car is best for me), but I wanted to know the following:07 to 08 changes-
Added liquid graphite finish to wheels
Mid-cycle change in 08 to use black carpet in cashmere interior cars instead of cashmere carpet
Hmmm... I've gone through the used cars through out the USA, and found a striking contrast of Breakwater Blue with the silver and liquid graphite finish:I don't know the build date change for the carpet, though I'm sure there must be one.... My car was delivered first week of October and had Cashmere... I started seeing reports on the forums of black carpet a couple of months ago though.
All the wheels are graphite for 08... but you might find a dealer willing to swap wheels from a used 06-07 for you. If not I'm SURE you can find an 06-07 owner on here willing to do so as most prefer the 08 finish.
Off the top of my head-Anyone have info to update this to 2010? We are looking at low milege 350's.
