Although it is difficult to see the front fascia clearly in the linked clip, nonetheless -- pretty much as expected -- close inspection reveals the R's front fascia will include the diagonal "slats" previously seen on the prototypes. In other words, the R's front fascia is (IMHO) a slight improvement over front fascia on the Mk8 GTI.
Thanks for the link, Carlos. (Oh, and by the way, I haven't seen anyone wearing a pair of string-backed driving gloves in years -- probably decades! I wouldn't mind finding a pair, come to think of it.)
