2007?

Input on whether or not the 1st model year for the R was "badged" with an "R Design" emblem?

Looks like the 2007 has side mirrors that matched the exterior color of the car vs the 2008+ got silver-aluminum mirrors, like that of an Audi S-car....

Also appears that the 2007 has the roof racks vs. the 2008+ losing the roof rack....

Anything to be on the lookout for when considering the V8?


Any information/ input is greatly appreciated!

Thanks....

Not really, but your dealer can ask their factory rep and he/she could probably find out.

Yes.

That is a serious bummer for those wanting a 2013 R-edition. I think the 20" Cratus wheels are PHAT.

The 19" Ixion isnt bad, but its not nearly as distinctive as the 20" Cratus.

I think the Savile Grey is awesome.........would look great with the beige interior.
