The warranty is slightly better as well...

No Need for This. Waste of your Money.
Rather buy beer.
Bonnet is designed to be dropped from about 6 inches.

It just looks different. However all of the struts now slow down and come to a soft stop at max extension. The old version had the same openning force for the whole travel of the strut.
