    The rear vents are fine, and it'd be great without the body color matching strips. The flat front vents are bad, let alone not matching with the design language of the rear vents.

    They are heavily influenced by the Germans, apparently. To me, it's a step backward compared with what the 16-18 had..

    I hope these are real because I'm getting mine in November, and I was promissed by the sales person that I will be getting the refreshed one, the first one in Slovenia (which I doubt, but hey he did say that :p).

    I really love the look, it adds minimalistic things but really cuts the percieved amount of FAKE PLASTIC VENTS by a lot.

    Is does that to an extent but it also adds another element to an already busy design.

    It's because there is no more vented texture to be faked, but a flat plastic panel instead since you all keep complaining how fake it was.

    Congrats! Yes, the Touring wheels are just a fantastic upgrade to the 2016-18 models.

    I just realize they have some interesting update for the refresh in China. A new muffler tip like the Sport in the State, and a pair of side skirts that look like the Sport Hatchback.

    Volume knob is a North America thing, and no illuminated parking brake button as well.
