FWIW I'm guessing minimal changes because of all the upgrades they made to the 2011..new motors, new trannies, revised suspension and brakes.. Not much more to do in the short term, maybe color and trim changes. I believe they'll hold off on DI till the 2014 50th Aniversary model. JMO

I'm really hoping for some better factory wheel options. The current offerings are very uninspiring when you look at the competition. I like the 19" wheels which come with the Brembo package, but don't want or need Brembos.

I think there are some pretty nice factory wheels options, like the Brembo's as you said but also the ones on the GT/CS and V6 Performance Package all 3 are 19".

They may be 19's... but they're not for everyone. I consider the brembo pkg necessary 90% because the wheels look the best. I don't track the car, I'm pretty sure I'll NEVER need the upgraded brakes, but the wheels look nice, the brakes look sweet, and resale value should be there.

Probably little more than bug fixes and paint/stripe schemes. Remember they have the Boss as a special edition for 2012, so i wouldnt expect much more than whats listed.

I didn't expect (or want) any changes to suspension,engine,trans since I have half a garage full of parts I have been buying to put on my 2012. I hope the clutch pedal issue is put to bed and hoping for a better clutch. The one thing I am holding off on is the CAI. I want one of those new intakes FRPP is testing and the CAI for that would be completely different.

They could do some suspension modifications, but I agree that they probably won't do much at all except fix any obvious F/U's that came in the first year. Why blow their load so soon when that "special" year is coming up?
