well my thinking would be I would rather cooler air pass around the engine from both sides rather than pass over from the top?

The more narrow grille is offsetting the proportions of the rest of the car. The windows are the same.

Just you. A refresh is just minor changes like the different hood, bumper, etc we see in the photo posted. Changing the "green house" is more of a major change.

I like it, but it's not enough for me to trade my SS.

I like it, not more than the current design, but it's nice.

Just an optical allusion. I mean - I could be wrong, but I really doubt a refresh would include raising the roof line. For all we know the picture that was posted to the Kelly & Michael might have not kept the correct proportions when it was downsized so the whole picture might be taller than it should be which would make the windows look bigger.

I did not tape the show, several did and hopefully will be posting pictures soon. No online clips yet either.

Still undecided. I will make my decision by the end of this weekend. Need to see more. Not waiting for a 2015 but there will have to be something crazy awesome about this 2014 that hasn't been revealed yet for me to go that route judging by what I see now. A new blue would make me get a 2014 cause there would be somebody on here willing to switch bumpers and hoods with me. Really curious about how a 1LE would look like this. Also want to see the rear end.

with that small squinty upper grill it looks like a 3rd gen T/A.
Placing my order for a '13 1LE today.

To your point - either the photo is of a car with a sunroof or the reverse mohawk is missing on the car...?

Well I haven't seen the back yet, but the only two things I don't like about is the hood and the chrome. The hood vents are too small and the chrome just looks cheap.

That hood is horrendous. That better be an option.

I highly doubt they'd modify the roofline or height for an MCE. All of that is locked in until the 6th gen.
