2012 or 2013 850 touring

I am looking to buy an 850 touring in the next couple weeks. I want to buy new but am more of a fan of the bronze color offered in the 2012 model year.
Other than the color options, is there anything new offered with the new 2013 model that I should consider that is different than the 2012 850 touring?

I bought my 2013 in the sunset red because it was the same color as my 2009. As far as equipment between the model years I am not sure as my 2013 is the LE. That bronze color is very cool and I recall seeing a pearl white color at my dealer last year that looked very sharp.

I don't think anything changed from 12 to 13 except color. I also have the LE and would have perferred the bronze or a black. You wont care about the color once you squeeze the throttle.
