1. (Other than for looks) Not 100% sure of this, but don't alloy wheels allow more air to reach the brake discs? If that is the case, cooler brakes = faster stopping
2. As for power seats, this is the reason for considering them: You get so many settings on the manual ones for how far forward/back you put the seat. The power seats have infinite settings. If one setting on the manual seats is too far forward, and the other is too far back, you want power seats - again, not too big a deal for most of us.
3. The security system: I was going to buy that for my 2007 (my trim level didn't come with it), but the salesman talked me out of it. His argument was that the key already has the chip it in, and that is a good theft deterrent by itself. The alarm part really doesn't get you much, nobody cares when they hear a car alarm go off.
4. 2007 has auto up/down power window on drivers side only. I sure wish I had it on both sides.
