Got my new car tonight!!

A month ago today, my SE Turbo was totaled. Tonight, I left the dealership with a '12 Limited Turbo with Nav in midnight black. I'm in love all over again! After driving a terrible Nissan Versa for the last month, it feels so good to "be home" again. Just on the drive home from the dealership, I've noticed that there are so many things about the 2012 that are so much smoother than the 2011. From acceleration to the turn signal switch to the paddle shifters, it feels like the car has a more refined feel. Maybe it's just me. I'll get some pics up in the morning. It's so good to be back!!!

Very nice, I just love mine and although I do not have any history with an '11, I agree with what you said as I feel it has a good feel and driving experience.

My brother said he thinks it looks smaller. It looks the same to me. Is there a difference in screen size between 2011 and 2012?

My wife drove it for the first time this morning and even she noticed the differences. Mainly because the SE had sport tuned everything and the Limited doesn't. But she never notices differences in ANYTHING...so I took that as meaning something. lol

Now if I can just get this bluelink thing figured out, I'll be good. lol

Thanks for the well wishes with it everyone. I hope things work out better with this one than the last!

Yes the 2012's screen is bigger. Not much though... I think 2011 had 6.5" and 2012 has 7".

Anyway, I remember seeing pics of your last one after the wreck. Glad you're ok! Enjoy your new car! Congrats!!
