    Looks like 2003-2005 is the best looking. Why did they screw it up in 2006, it looks cheap

    yea 03-05 is the nicest on the LCs. But 03-05 on the LXs doesnt interest me...i like 98-02 and 06-07.

    For the LC, the chrome grille (03-05) is my least favorite. I like the 98-02, simple and elegant.*

    I guess I'm the odd ball! I prefer the '06 LC grille over the '03-05, but the chromed version. For the LX, I prefer the 03-05, then the '06-07. For rear lights, I like the '06 LC LED's best.

    I like the 06-07 in pics, but have never seen one in person. Is the interior unchanged from 03-07?

    Looks like its a good thing we all have choices :). Only problem for the guys with the new ones is that most citizens can't tell a 98 from the 07 model.

    I think we're all ready for that re-design. In fact, I was at the Auto Show last weekend, and I sat in the new '07 they had there. I was surprised at how much it was like my '01! Sure, the nav was there and the trim was a bit different, but the changes are really only incremental. From the outside, I really have to think about which is which.

    I'm the same way and we are nuts about these LC/LX's. Normal citizen doesn't see any differences and if they do they can't ID which ones are the new changes versus old changes.

    yeah, its a good and bad thing. People always say my truck looks so new, one guy even thought it was a 06! I always tell people mines a 2000 and point out the differences. I aint ashamed...we got it new. Had mine before many people :D

    Nah, makes the cluster look like a barber shop pole, or a candy cane, IMHO. :grinpimp:

    I like the 98-02 in both LC and LX. The only detraction is they are not as new as the others.

    Might as well throw the LX's in this thread too.

    1) '98-'02
    2) '03-'05
    3) '06-'07

    While we're on the front grilles, we may as well show the rears and wheels.
