    Looks like the front (faux) CF lip will need constant TLC to keep it looking shiny.

    How is this "faux"? It's black plastic, it's not "trying" to look like CF. I much prefer this than a fake "FAUX" overlay wrap.

    From various pics of the prototype and in Geneva, the front lip looks to have patterns resembling CF, at least that's what it looks like to me. Granted, it's not mentioned in any specs about the material of the front lip. Or did I miss something?

    If you look at the picture of the front the left side of the lip definitely has a carbon fiber weave look, but the right side looks like straight plastic

    It looks pretty ugly. Why did they decide to do the white decals???

    Maybe it looks better in white since they won't be as noticable...

    I think he was being facetious about the protective tape used for transporting.

    Damn, all the salt spray covering that thing just made my heart skip a few beats. I'm going down stairs to take inventory of all my detailing supplies. Doesn't look like the US will be getting lane watch; How does that make any sense?

    If this is in fact a "actual production model and not like a pre-production model or test mule, then it would appear that the US is not getting lane watch as it is not on the mirror in this image.
    That dirt on the car is driving me crazy as well.

    If the usdm version doesn't come with the extra gadgets that just means it will be lighter which isn't a bad thing imo.
