Judging from the last set of photos, I'm not a fan of how the back door, wheel arch, and rocker panel come together. There's this wierd triangle created with the body lines and seems like it could flow a little better if like the MK5 in just this area.
And again 1.1" lower, where? Looks like its as high as Mk5 and 6 still. Unless they mean that one of the trim levels is lowered.
