There was nothing on the write-up that said that the '08 was going to have an IR key.

Is that just a picture of the Mercedes key in a Magnum?

I might be wrong but I believe the Penta-star logo is the logo for Chrysler corporate. Chrysler the car will probably keep the badging as we have now.

is auto start going to filter down to the Aussie models :p
There has been debate about this in the Aussie section. I believe the ADRs do not allow "Auto Start", much the same as turbo timers were outlawed some years back.

If my memory serves me correctly, there is a member in Brisbane who has it fitted from an imported kit.

bah, ADR always interfering with our fun,

Considering that Chrysler's Factory Accessories brand (MOPAR) do a remote start, can we tell cops here, that Remote Start is a factory fitted option?

was just wondering, because in 40degree dry summer heat, theres nothing worse than burning yourself on your beautiful leather.

The redesign is coming even earlier than mentioned, thats what the rumor mill is saying that the interior will be refreshed in 08 overhauled in 09 so that means the auto shows in late 08 will have a totally new interior, a total overhaul and even more new then the 08 refresh coming up next month.
Here is a story that kinda backs it up :
Chrysler says its interiors will get more attention - Autoblog

The most sensible comment I saw:

I've come to the conclusion that all of you must drive Bentleys, Rolls, A8s, 7-series, and S-classes. Last time I was in a Camry, what did I see? Plastic. Last in an Accord? Plastic. Hell... Infinity, Acura, even the mighty Lexus - PLASTIC. 95% of the cars manufactured in the world have a dash with a big "expanse" of... PLASTIC.
Bob-omb @ Aug 7th 2007 3:52PM
Oh boohoo. Of course car interiors are acres of plastic. That doesn't mean a thing. Chrysler interiors are badly designed, use unpleasing colors, have sharp corners, and are poorly put together. It's in practically all of their products, no matter how "upscale" they're supposed to be. It's not focused Chrysler bashing, it's just pointing out the obvious.
^ I praise Chrysler for not being gutless like everyone else and being different. Those dashes that are all organic make me feel like throwing up, if anything they make me seasick.

dan @ Aug 7th 2007 1:31PM
The LX cars have more legroom than almost anything else on the market. That's a more important interior feature to me than how hard the plastic on the dash is.

If only they hadn't ruined them with a belt line up to your neck. Way to go, exterior design department.
^ Yeah. Let's do what GM did with the CTS and make the windows go down as low as a camry on the sides. In fact, let's make it look like a Camry.

You got me chuckling with that comment OoTLink.

That's one of the things most 300C owners like about the design, the chopped look.

Maybe you should raise your seat :dunno: :laugh:

'08 model - light refresh
'09 model - slight tweaks
'10 model - all-new vehicle

I didn't know ford was going to have the large sedan ready for 09. Too bad they don't have balls and it won't even resemble the interceptor.
