If you are logged in, page 6 has "new nose" photos just before the Wayne Gerdes entry. Look closely at the bottom center and compare it to the "old nose" photo at the top of the page. You can just make out the sliding air inlet and the newly covered inlet slot that was at the front edge of the hood.

60 mpg hwy highest, 50+mpg lifetime
TDi=fast frugal fun
