I like to know if there is a differences in size between the 2007 and 2008 steering wheel. I know that the 2008-2008 has a different center that is used in the CTS and maybe other later model Cadillacs. But I thought the 2008-2009 steering wheels is much thicker around and the circumference is also smaller. Also, the steering wheel is heated. Am I correct? Any other changes that I forgot to mention?

The steering wheel in my 08 XLR-V is different than earlier years in that it has 3 buttons on each side ... and yes, one of them is to turn on the heat! Bill

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your reply! I wanted a smaller steering wheel and was hoping that the 2008-2009 models had a small overall circumference. I looked at pictures of the two and it seems that the 2008 and later; the wheel is smaller but of course it is only pictures.
