The DOD lobes have slightly more lift. This is said to compensate for a little lost motion in the DOD lifters so that all cylinders make the same power.

Here is a thread with a pic of the key: http://g8gt.com/t654/

The G8 comes with one key that is a flip key and one that has a fixed key blade.

Remote start is standard.

Rumor is that if you can buy fleet/non-retail, the 09s are being built now. I already know one member on another board that ordered through Entreprise fleet leasing.
