Fantastic upgrade. That face will most likely be a template for future AMG fascias. As much as I love the corporate predator-faced bumper graphics that are a current AMG trademark, I think this looks both more solid and sophisticated.
I'm not excited about the jump to mandatory AWD (at least in the states). RWD hooliganistics are synonymous with the brand's caricature style. I think this is an unfortunate move necessitated by everyone wanting better performance numbers. I wouldn't give a fuck about straightline stats and lap times if I was a prospective AMG buyer. I want burnouts, powerslides and loud noise.

Hold out for the BRZ STI or... Rocket Bunny FRS. Update: Scratch that. I've got a 2015 5.0/6MT with my name on it.
