Hopefully the US reg are more relaxed for the 2018, the Intelligent light system (ILS aka moving headlights) already exist for the 15-17 bixenons but not implemented due to regulations or cost cutting.Well, I will confess to a bias toward the 2017 45 since that is what Pam and I have, but I am envious of the LED headlights (the current lights are marginal in the mountains and in the snow and in general ... hopefully the new ones are dynamic and can be retrofitted), the 360 camera (that I believe would help Pam but I doubt that this could be added), and the hands free hatch (what a pain to find a third hand when walking up to the car).
A heads up display (future?) as mentioned might be nice, but possibly distracting. I'm still not sure about that.
Progress or not, change is inevitable!!!
typically a manufacture will use the same frame/model for 6-8 yearsI like the changes, they are a nice direction but certainly nothing that makes me wish I would have waited.
The around view and hands-free hatch would be very useful but not necessary. Given the small size and the rear camera with front and rear sensors, parking is pretty simple. LED would likely be pretty expensive and at least for me not worth it. I like the new styling but it's break even for me in terms of current to new.
Somehow, they still kept the horribly ugly door pins. I guess we'll have to wait for the full update for that massive upgrade.
All around a nice refresh, I guess we won't see a full new model until 2020 or 2021?
So since the 2014 was the first year then it would be a 2020-2022, somewhere in there? That will make for a perfect time to upgrade with my lease.typically a manufacture will use the same frame/model for 6-8 years
sorry to break this to you but even the 100+ thousand dollar E63 comes with plastic pins
