'07 began traction control and dropped the electric servos. Added Xenon lights in U.S. as well as the tire pressure monitor on later year models, which was sporadic as their wheel distributor went bust. Some seat improvements showed in 3rd quarter as aftermarket couldn't keep up with painful first-run seat.
'08's are built with whatever they had leftover - airboxes too. They also toned down the CG color with a bit of eco-friendly green to satisfy the dang CA CHP who go monkey-nuts when the see the CG color. Least they don't have a red color. <damhik!>
During '07 they also began to offer the Stability Control. It was special order only!
Just thought I would throw that out there!
