      Congratulations on the new purchase. I haven't heard anything about improved remote start range. I believe I've read that one member was able to start his from about 300'. I was able to start my 2011 from around that distance as well. Haven't tried my 2017 as I don't really have a need to start it from such a distance. Don't forget to update your profile.:)

      This late in the year and given all the changes to the 2018 I would have waited but each to their own.......I love my 17 Sport, just wish I had the updates the 18 has.

      What in particular do you like in the 18 vs the 17? I really don't like the way the quad exhaust looks...I'm not in the car long enough to utilize the 4G option...just curious is all!!!

      I agree with you on the exhaust I much prefer the 16/17 exhaust integrated into the rear fascia.

      I'm big on the 4G and as well the newer safety features.

      The front clip changes are subtle but I like them over the 16/17.

      The other things are new color choices, new wheel choices, I'm not a fan of my current 17 Sport wheels. I liked the 13-15MY black painted pocket wheels over the current gray painted pockets. Why they market the Sport with a "blackout" package and then change the wheels to gray confuses me.

      Your right its not enough to trade up but if I was starting new I would choose the 18 over the 17.

      I am so glad I waited. I look forward to getting this '18 beast in October when they debut.
      The issue with the exhaust doesn't sway me one way or the other.
      4G? meh. Not a deciding factor.
      I am waiting to see what those colors and new wheels actually look like.

      You can order one now. According to the schedule initial orders opened on the 18th. You likely won't see then in the showrooms until mid to late November since production doesn't start until October 16th. Hopefully someone will have the Order Guide available before then.

      I did with my 2011 Limited in December 2010 because they weren't out yet. Only saw pictures. Had absolutely no regrets.:)
      In a way I also got my current Platinum 'sight unseen' except for pictures. It was a sort of last minute thing and the only one in the colour (White Gold) I wanted was at another dealer in the city and my dealer brought it in for me. Again, no regrets. That colour was new for 2017.

      I am really waiting on the colors before I make my decision. (Sigh...I wish they offered different colored interiors!)
