    early ones had motor issues... I have seen one spit out needle bearings into the oil pan... the ones that have the smaller capacity will starve of oil in an aggressive corner...

    In 2008 the shift linkage was revised, and the steering is a tab bit better too.
    Not to mention that the center stack (console) is the faux carbon starting in 2008.
    But they're basically all the same.

    The thing is they get better every year, becuse they have a chance to fix what they did not get right the year before.

    any ls7 in a hpe event without the oil baffle have been known to have catastrophic failure.
    the needle bearing issue is across years 06-07 with i think less than 3 being reported in the 08 years
