OK, I'll start. The windows are too photoetchy.
There's a time and a place for photoetched parts, but too many manufacturers are slapping over-scale pieces on window apertures with no indication of detail. The trim around windows was three-dimensional and these parts are way two-dimensional. Perhaps these prototypes will be further refined and the windows made more realistic in production. Let's hope.

If modest Premium X models can do chrome, why can't models costing 2-3 times as much use this process?
