I love all the eye candy at first glance. Not sure about the colors in a "long term relationship." Looks futuristic. Can't wait to see what actually turns up.

Another "iPad stuck in the dash" design -- albeit, an elongated rectangular version. Wish they'd integrate the display into the dash in a more "framed-out" maner, and maybe use a curved OLED screen. Not liking the illuminated air vents at all...distracting in the cockpit, especially for an interior component that might be better off unseen altogether. All that shiny metallic trim might also be annoying in bright sunlight, especially the seat backs for the rear passengers.

Waiting to read about the first accidents caused by OCD drivers cleaning fingerprints off their 3-feet long touch screens...at 85 mph.

Good point. Many TFT displays have a hard time when it gets too cold. The "Magic Sky" roof in my SLK was very slow on cold days back in Connecticut (the Dark Ages).
