So the older ones in circulation don't have this issue?

I read that there are two types, a silver one with only the top ring indented (original) and a grey one with top two rings indented (newer style). I wonder if it's the grey ones... Though you'd think the grey ones should have been called V3.1 or something, to distinguish them from the original V3's.

From post 1291 of the Lux thread, old vs. new:
The silver edition in the picture is mine (which is for sale btw). I've had zero issues with it for 14k miles.
