The loan agreement also states that the vehicle is limited to 80MPH but in my case this was not true. The VIN is something in the mid 13k. More than 10k vehicles after mine was produced, and is brand new. I was peeling off plastic sticky things as I left the service center.
I was well overdue for my 12.5 service and have been waiting way too long to get in. But it finally happened!
The first thing I noticed was that the door handles felt different. Like they actually pull out a bit when you open the door. Then upon entering I noticed that the center console wasn't carpet. It is gloss Obleche with rubber runners down the center. To match the wood in the rest of the interior.
The best improvement that I could tell was that the hood has significantly more mass to it. Its definitely thicker and stiffer. Mine sometimes almost feels like it will crumple unless I am careful to close with both hands. The new ones just don't have this issue. Or at least the loaner that I received.
As I was driving it, it also felt very stiff and zippy. Like it had more power and was just so fresh and new. The power aspect was likely only in my head. But it was very good feeling. And didn't have any of the roof creaks!
Anyone else notice these things? I haven't really been following the threads, but definitely thought that this was interesting.
Also, it came with floor mats front and rear. But they are not as nice as the premium mats in the store. By the time I had driven home, the passenger side had already flipped over.
