The #1 thing that bothers me about the redesign is the fact that it looks like they deliberately left off some details and I'm already awaiting the facelift in 2022 :p

Frankfurt show is 2 weeks away and is where the W464 was rumored to be launched. So we should know more soon. Surprised they aren't making some sort of special editions for the last MY of the W463.
