The biggest difference you will feel is the ride and handling. The multilink fully independent rear suspension on the 5th gen is a significant upgrade over the solid axle setup on the 4th gen.

I'm pumped to say the least, wanted a 1LE but didn't have the budget, next time!
I can't wait to post Pic's.

You can get a lot of the goodies that come with the 1LE in the aftermarket for a relatively bargain price. The 5th Gen suspension is pretty easy to modify and upgrade.

Tasteful appearance mods. Looks great! Can’t tell if you have the Heritage grill or not but it looks nice and clean especially with the red.

Beautiful ride man and congratulations. I am always very happy that another person gets to experience what it is like to own and drive one of the finest cars built.

Just make sure you take care of her!
