2006 4.8is vs 2007 4.8
Assuming I don't care about the 3rd seat, can anybody give me their personal pros and cons between the two vehicles - assume 10K miles on the '06 for the low 60's and a standard deal on the 4.8 pretty loaded (no active steering) which I guess would be about $75.

I am not sure what options are available in the 2006....

I like the 2007 for the comfort access and push button start. Plus the new body style is awsome!

As you know, everything is std on the 06 4.8is. So, a fair comparison from a pricepoint persepective would be approx. $72K for a new 07 4.8.

I've seen 06 4.8's on eBAY, etc for around $57K.

I ordered an 07 because it's slightly bigger, had the new gadgetry, etc. I also couldn't stand the black on black (clean freak).

Most importantly, I could afford it. If $'s are an issue, and you don't have kids (I like the 3rd row/space) grab the 06. Peformance wise, differences are minimal.

Good luck.

I agreee..... I love all the tech stuff they added in the 2007.

I really like the look of the large wide wheels/tires on the 4.8is-- it separates it from the 4.4 and every other SUV on the planet. Even the Cayenne Turbo S wheels look small and narrow by comparison. Does the 4.8 have the wheels as the 4.8is in terms of size? From the look of the 4.8, the 4.8is wheels appear wider.
