It doesn't really look that different...
Thank you! I was beginning to think it's a case of the Emperor's New Clothes.
Apart from the two front teeth it looks the same to me.
Can't see what Wheelchair is moaning about.

Looks better in this pic imho, compared to the earlier scans of the 5 door which emphasised more the new air intakes built into grill - I still think that breaking up the flow of the clear polycarbonate 'grill' totally spoils that feature and lacks the design flair of the original, and which made the front view so distinctive.

The graphite painted lower trims should look better though - quite like that, short of full colour coding.

I think it looks ok?........like you said no where near as bad as the press released photo's!! Although I do the think the 'R' grill looks best (I am bias tho! :) )

Don't know why they don't put on the 'R' grill with a silver or chrome badge instead of the RED one???
