Aah, got ya.. If you mean will the "Tron" looking faceplate light up like that on an '08; having never actually had either personally I can't say 100% but looking at the '08 housing and LED placement, I'd say some of the lines won't light up because they'll be blocked by the housing..
Also more importantly there are some lights down the center of the faceplate that won't be on the replacement one (traction control check engine, high beam, etc..), and the little oval lights in the speedo and tach wouldn't be there.
