The 2014 refresh is pretty much a step forward in every single regard (some very important regards, particularly the transmission) except in my opinion aesthetics, which is a shame because if they kept the looks the same the 2014 would pretty much be absolutely perfect and there'd be no second thought as to whether or not I wanted to get the 2014, unless the price was a lot higher.
But again, as I've said before, I'm reserving final judgement until I see the final official hi-res photos. My fingers are crossed. Anyway I always have considered myself to be a function over form kinda guy. I just don't want something that looks turrible...
