Yeah, EWB, or Extended Wheelbase Ghost has been out for a year or so. The EWB is TOO big IMO. It makes the Ghost not usable or driveable for everyday.

It's funny...maybe my 2012 is a late build...but many of these "2013" features, I already have. And I do not see how they could make the already heavy and weighted interior metal door handles (pulls) feel any more substantial!

On a side note...It's awesome (or negative, depending on your view)...but in the past when we've switched between BMW, MBZ, Porsche, Audi, Range Rover, Bentley...programming and getting used to the car could be a daunting project. With The Ghost and 7 Series....a snap of the fingers. I did Bluetooth, Sirius Presets, Driver settings, Car Settings, etc, etc in about 3 minutes. It is almost identical to the 7 Series. Logical, intuitive and easy!!
