Good question and don't know. I know my grill is diamond shaped. I think RLs are too. That was an early picture of the RL from GM (IIRC) and that may have just been something they did for that car/picture for whatever reason.I noticed in the forward, redline , picture that it shows a rectangular grill insert. Is my diamond grill an after-market add on?
The 08's had the rear cupholder - deleted in the 09's, but the 09's had Bluetooth. The USB radio was an (later?) 09 option and surprisingly few actually got it.the 08 should be identical to the 09, other than the radio (I think you could get a 09 with a USB port) and maybe color choice, I can't think of any other real difference in the base NA model.
I do have the ability to check your vin and see what it's production date is and where that falls in relation to other Sky's sold in the US. Note this isn't an exact "production number" since Sky's sold to Canada and Mexico were produced on the same line but not included in the data I have.I was wondering if there is a way to check the Vin. # to get the production number? I bought my 2009' Ruby Red Saturn Redline I guess it is a special Edition (it has a carbon stripe) in Colorado back in Sept. of 2008. I love my car and just want all the info. I can get. I have not ever saw one like it until I finally found one online. I appreciate any infh yes, the color is ruby red.
