Yes, it's a big improvement over the MY11-13 cars for refinement and comfort.
Certainly rides better than my MY11 did on the stock suspension and NON-run flats.

Easy to drive too. Either it doesn't follow imperfections in the road as much or they've done something to the steering because it's just more relaxing and you don't feel like you need to constantly be alert.

Not sure if it's the noise cancelling or extra insualtion but it's quiet too.
You do get road noise from the tyres at speed, but it's just so quiet around town.

So there you have it. Easier to drive, more comfortable and quieter.
You can see where they have focused for this upgrade.

My first car with the Recaro seats too.
My MY10 and MY11 had the premium seats and I thought I may have made a mistake with the more sporty Recaros.
Yet they seem a bit softer and than the ones in the MY13 I sat in at the dealership.

Tired now and can't be bothered to take new pictures.
Will probably start a new thread when I do, or add them here.
Sweet thanks for the review, what's the gearbox/software like compared to previous?

Thanks

OK, been for a little drive.

If they didn't copy the Litchfield suspension kit it's a flipping close set up in terms of comfort and compliancy.

It's lost the hard crashy ride down B roads of the previous years and even on the run flats just feels right.
I certainly wouldn't put non-runflats on this for normal use and that's the first thing I wanted with the MY11.

A few pics...

Not sure it shows well as it's dark, but here you go.
DRLs are off as the ignition is off.

Lights look good in pics so I imagine they look a lot better in the flesh... very nice indeed.

My MY10 and MY11 both had the premium interior so I can't do a lengthy comparison as I went Recaro this time to have something different.

Really like it though. Glad I went for the Recaro interior now.
I did sit in Glyn Hopkin's demo MY13 and the Recaro seats seemed firmer so they may have softened them a bit.

There are a few minor things on the central screen and carbon fibre backings on the dash dials too.

But overall not a lot of changes inside.

Congratulations Richard, very nice.
Are the new Dunlop run-flats any better in the wet or is it early days?

Flynn,
Picked mine up yesterday and the only differences to the inside are:

flappy paddles now a dark colour like the wheels.
new stitching around the gear stick
new panel around the gear stick
new menu buttons on the MFD. Instead of A,B... at the top it has icons
new button next to boot release to switch off adaptive headlights

It now drives like an ordinary car over the bumps which removes a bit of feel. Will need to wait a while to see if the pads at the back still rattle. Usually takes a few weeks to show.

Dougie.

My MY11 was running the EcuTek software and it's very similar.
You can catch it out if you put it in gear and immediately press the accelerator, which makes it jump forwards, but other than that it's very smooth IMO.
I've not had a stock MY11, 12 or 13.

At this stage the car feels right, I don't want to change anything.

Lovely car Rich - I guess the my15 will be the final version but either that or an my14 certainly appeals in the future

Yes it's speed sensitive now.

Do you find it needs less correcting where the old model tended to need more work to keep it's heading?

Not sure if it's the revised suspension or steering, or combination, but it's certainly an easier drive now if you are not pressing on.

CT17,
Yes think it's a combination. It just feels refined now which takes away some of the track car type feel if you see what I mean.

Dougie.
