    The old one or the new one ?
    I simply love the new one, looks sleeker, and I am glad they got rid of the nose-cone everyone hated :p

    I like the new one better... However, I'm miffed that it now makes my Classic S look older. o_O

    Depends on the colour. I have the same reaction as I do on the X. With white it's "ew." With blue it's love.

    I love the new one. I'm just sad we can't get away without a front license plate in Germany, IMHO the new front looks better without a license plate.

    Hey, some of us who possess grey hair take offense to to that list sentence. As a matter of fact, I'm going to tell my grandchild that I am not 'old', I am 'Classic'. :D

    New one looks great in red with silver 21" wheels.

    Like the new look and don't mind it dates our Model S (because we leased) will be trading it in on a new one before too long

    I'm very glad I locked myself into $600/month bmw 335 lease August last year. I would broken down and gone for this updated S for $100k, 90D. Now I can hunker down for the long, long wait for the more affordable Model 3.

    Red with silver 21" wheels looks awesome!

    I find it to be color dependent. I think the white paint with new front end looks strange. But I rather like the darker paint colors with the new front end.
    I'm sure I'm biased by the fact that I have a white car with the old front end...

    I've been long awaiting the nose job, and now we got it.
    I prefer the new look over the cone.
    One less excuse for me not to buy.

    The thing I'm not liking so much is the bottom trim color matching the body color. It makes the car look chunkier, less streamlined, less sporty.

    I tend to gravitate to the darker colors, so not such a big deal for me personally. Just an observation.

    New one is better. It looks more futuristic, modern, sleek and aggressive. I can't wait to see some new S's with the new nose.

    New one looks like an EV I prefer it to the antique/relic/vintage/fossil one... :D

    It completes the car.

    While I do like the new look better, I'm curious as to how this will affect things like battery access (classic cars have 12V battery posts directly behind the nosecone). Where are they on the updated cars?

    Thanks for vocalizing this.

    The other, related thought I had on this is how some folks had magnetically mounted their license plates. (Or the rare few that had one nose one for license plate and another without.)
