facelift model from Month 5 2005 must have my spec in its top spec.
Because AS-G also have grades. Lowest grade ASG only have 1 LCD and 2 power doors.
Lower than that is basic AS with single CD, power/not power doors

Give me the size of the wheel and what color is the wood panel.
If 16" AX, 17" AS.
If wood panel is red, the it's AX, if Black then it's AS.

Basic model like AX AXL MX AS MS dont came with VSC. Top end models AS-G MS-G MZ and MZ-G equiped with VSC.
ALL models come with ABS.
HID (AFS HID) not Include in most AX AXL MX. But include in AS AS-G MS MZ and MZ-G.

2nd semester of 2005 its the beginning of the facelift Alphard. Month 5 exactly. Just look the headlamp, the facelift has many square reflector inside (the old one is round), taillight have 2 white line for turn signal (old one have 1 white line).
The new one have little side mirror in the front left side.

In the interior, look the center AC ventilations in the dash. New one has vertical lines!!!!!!!!!! old one has horizontal line. Wood panel in the old one is red wood, in the new one is yellow orange wood(AX AXL MX MZ MZG). The black wood is the same(AS ASG MS MSG)

Now came out new Version of 2007 Alphard AS and MS.

It's called AS MS "Prime Selection"

The different is in the interior, AS MS "Prime Selection" wear 2 tone Black over Beige interior instead Black over Grey. Orange Wood panel instead Black wood panel, Beige seats instead black.

It combines the sporty appearance and luxury interior.

O6 and O7 alphard dont have any difference in the MAIN line-ups. AX AX-L MX MX-L MZ MZ-G with Royal Yellow wood panel, no bodykit, 16" wheel. AS AS-G MS MS-G with Black wood panel, bodykit, 17" wheel. ALphard Hybrid with Black wood panel, 16" wheel.

But now Toyota offers special edition Alphard AS/MS 'Prime Selection' on CUSTOM line-up, like i mentioned before. Body of AS/MS with bodykit and 17"wheel, interior with Royal Yellow wood panel instead of black wood panel. Seat with Alcantara leather.
Actually it is the 2nd editon of 'Prime Selection' The ist is for 2002-2005 models.

The 18" wheels are Aftermarket Wheels.

Yes, MZG has cooler box and seat heater.

Entry level Alphard is AX 2.4.

MZG offers spacious space more than estima, and it is one rank above estima. So the price is also high.

Estima 3.5 full spec has similar features like the MZG puls auto parking. The price similar to MZG since it's has new 3.5 engine and new gearbox.

Resale value :
AS and AS-G have better resale value, since the look is sportier.
Second is AX-L.
