difference between 2007 and 2008 D3curve

am checking this out on ebay a D3 curve which is a good price for the UK

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DAHON-CURVE-D3...QQcmdZViewItem

but it is a 2007 not 2008 model - so can anyone let me know the difference if any between 2007 and 2008 models?

You can be certain that the main difference will be that the 2008 model will be much more expensive.

It seems like the only difference is the hinge, it is new for 2008. I would get a 2007 if the price was right.
In the USA, there is a large price difference between new 2007's and 2008's. I think the lower value of the dollar has a lot to do with it.

thanks everyone for helping me out with this.... I am not sure the price differential once you factor in shipping and having to pay someone to set up makes it worthwhile.... Will try and find some dealers with models and do more comparison shopping.
