So far first impressions are....
1) fuel gauge shows completely full now..the last indicator light on the fuel gauge of the 09 never lite up when the tank was full.
2) no more whine from the ECU thingy.....
3) lift gate now pops up with more force and doesn't have to be pressed twice like the 09.
4) the automatic transmission in this vehicle is a BEAST.
5) Bose audio is 100% better than the base stereo unit.
6) Call me crazy by it seems that the cockpit is slightly more roomer than the 09. I swear the dash is pushed back a few inches.
7) the ride seems to be smoother and quieter. I cant tell if that's cause of the stock rims or not? I had aftermarket rims on the 09 when I bought it.
8) The automatic seems to feel quicker off the line than the manual was. ????
9) The oil temperature now stays near 200 instead of 220 like the 09 Z... ?????

That's all i've noticed so far...
1) Yep. I think they finally got it to be less error prone as of 2011
2) That was definitely corrected after '09.
3) I had one gradually do that on both my '10 and '11... sooner or later you may need to replace them.
4) Yes it is
5) Amen to that too.
6) That, I think, is illusory. If not, news to me.
7) Possibly. They also changed the suspension in 2013 if your car is that new or newer.
8) Always was
9) If you have a '12+, it has an OEM oil cooler

I had a 2010 7AT and now a 2013 Sport Touring 7AT and both have been wonderful. I have noticed since after an Uprev tune when driving in automatic mode and flooring it the rpms will drop down to 6.5k and the head back up and kind of jostle for a few seconds between the low gears. Even with TCS off it does this. I'm taking it into the shop next week to get the transmission fluid drained and filled since it's now on 82k with no believable history of trans maintenance.
