    I think that looks too soft, almost looks "cheaper" than the base model. It needs a more aggressive look to it, and a side skirt or something related.

    I think you both need to add the mesh grille in the bottom air dam

    I agree. With the grille detail gone, it just looks too plain. It would have to look a whole lot more special than that.
    The base model looks awesome as it is already.

    I also don't like how he photochopped-out the LEDs, which is the biggest front-end news of the decade, maybe.

    This is the only car at this price range to get LEDs, and will likely be one of the first cars--period to have them as a standard part of the headlights.

    I am not sure why anyone would want to change that.

    I don't think there are LEDs there.

    Looks good but the base model looks more agressive
