08 trim levels?

So, if I'm reading this correctly, there are only 2 trim levels in 08:
2.3T and Aero, and the only real difference between the two is the two-tone seats and sport suspension. Brakes are the same, right?

The only option packages were the visibility package and the navigation, right?

There's no arc, linear, aero crap?

There was just 2.3T and Aero. The Aero got the suspension and seats (typically), I think they had the same brakes and they reverted back to the tiny rear brakes in 2006.

-edit-

Long story short, there is far less of a difference between the Aero and non-Aero cars 2006-2009.

'08 Got sport seats standard.

Aero means much less in '06+ cars, especially '08+ with the seats. Mine with Aero seats and upgraded suspension makes it an Aero lol.

That's what my research tells me too.

I did hear somewhere that non-Aeros from '06-'09 have engine software extracting only 220hp even though ALL 9-5's from those years share the same hardware.

Not true. Arcs had 220hp an model line that was before 06, 04-05 only. All 06-09s were 260hp.
