Hi guys and girls, just about to take the plunge and am a bit stuck 3ltr V6. looking at 2006 to 2008 models. Budget up to £11000.

From what I can make out the 2006 onwards has the 7 speed auto box but was the facelift that huge in 2008?

Bombard me.:|

Different engine in the 3.5l. Different front and rear spoilers. Slightly different interior. Most easily spotted by silver buttons on the earlier and black buttons in the later. There was a balance shaft problem in earlier models which ended at the end of 08 I believe. You can check affected engine nos on this site. Its a $3k repair.
