What do you see in the new Convertible images?

Taking a look at the recently released convertible images, what do you notice that we haven't seen before?

Mine:
1. Headlamps for sure
2. Still see the fake front air inlet

Others:
3. that small rear spoiler
4. No bowtie on the grille
5. reflections or air inlet on the top rear of the hood?
6.

Crease or whatever between fog lamp and side marker light at the end of front bumper, lower front fascia and larger lower vent area. Fog lamp slightly larger? Grille looks more like concept grille. I think once there are some larger hi-res pics we'll notice a few more minor changes.

^What they said and:
It's a vert with the top up and It has a different antenna on it than the others. It has different wheels than I've seen before.

I could be wrong, but being a convertable, I think I see what could be the required third brake light poking out just befor the spoiler. I'm sure in the coupe, it will be on the inside rear window. And not to doubt what you have pointed out, but until we see better photos, can we really asume that the air intakes are still 'fake'? It's all too dark to really see that kind of detail yet.

None of the wheels we've seen have exactly blown me away.

I'm trying to figure out just where the turn sigs are. Is that orange glow in the headlamp the parklamps or just a reflection? The wheels look like something that would be offered on a V6...not outstanding, but okay. looks like the grille has an indention where the bowtie goes. The headlamps look like they have halos. Halo lamps for the "halo' car. I still can't tell if the scoop is fake or not. Iwanna see MORE!!!!
