Well, I'm finally getting rid of my '00 328i and getting a '05 Murano SE AWD with all the FACTORY options. I ordered it VPP in October so it should be here any week now. The one thing that I noticed, looking at '05's on the lot the other day, was that the center muffler/resonator does not hang down as low. I didn't get a side by side comparison with the older models, so I don't know exactly what changed. The one thing I can say is that it does not immediately attract your eye when you look at a profile shot of the Murano.
