So I guess that video confirms that the show car here is Imola (is that individual only now?)

Also what color is the pre-LCI in that instagram video... looks awesome.

Why do the front bumpers all turn up like that? It looks ridiculous and cheap. The previous bumper has a much more aggressive chin line.

Assuming it has to be a safety regulation decision. See a lot of performance cars with that these days. I dislike it too

The M performance version looks amazing! Still not liking the headlights though. What you guys think of the new front bumper design?

Pre-refresh looks so much better. Not a fan at all of the new refresh.

I'm pretty sure the model they showed was a competition - maybe because there are approximately 75 competition badges on it...

I'm curious to see this in person. The taillights seem worse to me than the headlights. By adding all the black trim I feel like they stand out more when I would prefer them not to be a focal point. Also want to see how much bigger the screen is when you sit in the car. It looks gigantic in that video.

I'm actually really content now with my 2019. For the first time I don't have a need to upgrade to anything.
