Of course, the real thing always has more of a visual impact. The only thing I'm going to nitpick are the taillights. On the side profile of the render they look correct. They are horizontal on the end, but on both 3/4 view they are slanted. Hard to time, but in the low quality spy shots they look like they stick outwards like on the Zupra.Wow, it looks like the render, but in reality it looks even better. Like the IS, they'll make an amazingly good looking facelift.
They moved the licence plate in the rear from the trunk to the bumper, I like that.
