Is this a 2010 CR-V?

TOV reader "Puttz" sent this cell-phone photograph to us a few days ago but unfortunately it got caught somewhere in the tangled web of spam filters. Fortunately I saw this message in one of our earlier newsitems and went sifting through my spambox to see if I could find it.

Since it is cellphone image, the details are scarce, but you can see that there is indeed something different with this CR-V. There appears to be a lot more brightwork around the grille area. Here's the report from "Puttz":

Jeff, I'm a daily visitor to the site, it is good stuff. I frequent a restaurant in Dublin, Ohio (20 minutes from Honda's Marysville plant) which is a favorite of Honda associates. I noticed this CRV in the lot yesterday with MFG plates and different wheels than my wife's '07 CRV. The wheels were similar to those on the RDX sketch just posted and the front end has a two piece chrome grill and an odd chrome strip on the lower grill. The pic was taken with my cell phone, so not the best quality.

I would have posted it on my own, but I don't have the time right now to figure out the mechanics of posting pics.

Feel free to post, my TOV user name is Puttz.
