I agree the 2008 is better equipped. As long as you are getting a major component warranty with the vehicle, I would go with the lower miles and more options.
Never thought about the tint and how it might help and it definitely sucks to jam your front lip into a parking block. I would still prefer the other optionsver just PDC, but good info for OP to consider.
