We traded in our 05 EXL RES with 47,700 miles on a 08 EXL R&N and the difference is amazing. The ride has improved, the sound dampening has improved, and the fit and finish is better. The floor mats aren't as thick, have less thread count, and they aren't engraved with Odyssey on them. The back of the 3rd row seats are now carpet instead of leather. I like the telescoping steering wheel a lot better and now it's more ergonomically comfortable to drive. Even my wife can tell a drastic improvement between the two vehicles. We never thought we'd like driving or even owning a mini-van, but now we can't live without it. Convenience, room, better gas milage than SUV's, and comfort done well
Telescoping steering wheel, power, plently of room, and the NAV.
