    The roof rails could just be mocked up for display purposes.

    This picture looks like it has a spring compressor on the left side of the spring. you can see the coil sitting in a saddle and two threaded rods coming down and the nuts look loose.

    That is exactly what it looks like. As many times as I looked at it in person, on my iphone, then here, never noticed it.

    Yes and if you look at the bottom of the shocks, you'll see a tube that comes out the bottom. I believe this goes over to a control unit that changes the pressure in the shocks based on the setting selected on the computer.

    wow, learn something new everyday. i knew the ccd adjust the damping rate but i thought the spring sysyem was different as well. hopefully they can refine the ride even more than what they were able to accomplish with the refreshed 3rd gens. newer cars/crossovers ride so good and sophisticated now without much detriment to handling.

    "Initially thought they were heating elements but most likely AM/FM antennas along bottom of windshield from the center over to the passenger side. Nothing on the drivers side. "

    I think you were right with your initial thought. These must be the windshield wiper di-icer feature, which in itself must heat the glass to melt any ice on the wipers.
