Presumably the new engine makes use of the revised hood, which is said to have a functional hood scoop.


Some will want to wait for the new version, others will want to get the current version while they are still available.


Wow! These are nice revisions! https://www.google.com/search?q=2017...isch&tbs=isz:l

If you want it, can pay cash for it, get it. If you can't do a cash deal don't get into more payments just to take care of a temporary boner.

aka108 good advice but not the normal way anymore. Normal for my thinking and today the economy is having issues from across the sea to make your case ever more true.
