    Scratches, flaking, easy to put a hole in. I just think of the old discolored ones I'm used to seeing. Even when I wash it, I like the feel of the metal. Plastic grille = plastic clips and I just hate those type fasteners. My lower wind shroud came off because of those damn fasteners. No powdercoat option.
    Just my .02. I don't want to piss off BigJim. It will save weight.

    I do not think it's been mentioned that the plastic might also have been required for airflow reason. The grid on this plastic screen looking grill seems much more open and smooth. Pretty sure air will flow way better through thos plastic one than any wire mesh. Just the rod shape of a wire mesh is not good in the first place. Plastic can be shaped to create less obstruction to the airflow.

    A lighter color headliner makes the cockpit feel more open, roomy, airy.

    Yup.

    Ebony and Titanium Interiors will have a Titanium headliner. Ebony/Cashmere Two-Tone will most likely have a Cashmere headliner.

    Re: Who has the latest dirt?

    What, don't like all the crap just tossed in there with little forethought? No worries, they'll just put a big ugly plastic cover over it. One of many reasons why it won't/can't command M5 money.

    I'm lightning in a bottle.

    A picture of a preproduction mule with the STB installed backwards and the underhood lines not routed cleanly is not indicative of final production. Mules have all that "stuff" sticking up everywhere and not tied down so it's easy to get at and make adjustments to or take readings from.

    Price and value are two different things. So it costs less than an M5- so what? When the '09 V shows up stomping M5s in the magazine comparos, we'll see how many people still think the M5 is worth $30k more.

    The question comes up of how long BMUU will go before they beef up the M5. Of course they won't do it without also beefing up the price, probably getting near the 100K mark.
