I don't know, I have mixed feelings about this bonnet, but overall I think they did pretty decent job  ok (I've changed my mind after close inspection) but Car looks masculine for sure.
I don't know why they used liftarms instead of panels in bonnet section and overall gaps galore in front doesn't really work for me.
Dark Blue Rims instead of black? They've just killed any usability of those Rims in Moc's

I’m also slightly disappointed by the stickers and the shape of the hood. But still want to see it in person before I make a final decision.  

I don’t want to be here two years from now regretting not to have bought this by some minor things. 

But I do want to know what the other features are before it’s going to be final...

I'm more than certain that MOC'ers will fix this thing. It's a matter of weeks after release. I'm also disappointed by the fact that once they've started working on this project they could've easily design a new panel to fit those gaps especially in the bonnet. Moc'ers and Technic enthusiasts would appreciate new technic panels especially with curvature on it instead of using standard liftarms which is a let down.
It's likeable but for the price you can't really let them go with this design choices having infinite amount of resources.
They have lego system bricks to complement gaps galore.

Well, I do like all those; so maybe I just have to not think too hard about it and just jump at it...

What´s the rush? It will be out for 2.5 years and it is not a SAH exclusive, so you´ll be able to get it for much less cash next year.

£329.99 in the UK - 'avin' a larf!

Expect enormous discounts like the much better and more accurate Porsche.

That´s about 375 euros in post Brexit money - you can´t always expect to have Destiny´s Bounty price pairings!

I pity the fools who are going to have to stump up 400 plus euros for one.

$350.00 here in the US, that’s not too bad. I thought it was going to be closer to $400.00 originally ?

But that seems fair with all the extra parts I guess...

My LEGO stores are only 15 and 25 minutes away here in San Diego; I’m getting awfully “itchy”, this is going to be a huge testing of my willpower... ?
