If they really added dead reflector strips like they did to the Accord below; I am a bit saddened albeit the execution is much improved.

Either way, it looks waaaaaay better than the outgoing model. I love seeing the response across the auto blogs: decisively positive now compared to the hate fest from the original spy shots. These photos should be an example for future Honda releases.

Indeed the rear reminds me of the BMWs, with their signature L shaped rear tale lights.

From these two photos the car looks really good. Thumbs up!
