Hey moff tarkin,

Love the pics! Don't forget that you can access your owner's manual online here, as well as print service coupons.

Always here if you need me.

There is no longer a D-pad to control the entertainment center menus on the steering wheel. As you mention, that control now has the functions of the Sync paddle on the '12 and '13 models. On the '14, the entertainment center can only be controlled via the touchscreen (MyFordTouch), or the D-pad on the center stack on the MyFord/Sync models.

I personally think it's a serious downgrade. I use the right D-pad for the menus on my '12 all the time.

Yeah, there's no longer a right paddle. There are stereo controls which are also used to make and end phonecalls.

You can also use the physical controls (vol, source, track up/dn, etc.).
I use them often.

Two years now down the road with my 2012 and after just doing the snorkle delete I am one happy person.
In conjunction with the K&N filter (I have had for a long time now) the car is way peppier. All around more. Just more apparent power.
So the snorkle delete and an aftermarket filter really make the car better.

I would not get an exhaust as I like the quiet exhaust. but the air stuff do not really add much noise. (a little you can hear starting the car. and at big throttle/high RPM like getting on a freeway.. but usually nothing loud)
So still happy as can be after two years and going...

Right. My point was that many options that the D-pad allowed control of from the 2012-13 steering wheel can only be controlled from the center stack in the 2014.

It's hard to miss something you've never had.
