If that were correct though I wonder why the cars in FL last weekend appeared to have the graphite finish...? US brochure does not picture the 18's at all. Maybe they are just becomming available at US launch time...
Satin chrome is also what is shown in the Feb Roundel, inside front cover.
Remember that just because a car is in the US doesn't mean it's totally US spec
