I tried it this afternoon and really liked what they did in this update.

-The car sounds are improved albeit not drastically but noticeably. The crazy tire screeching has been toned down and the wind effects add some much needed sense of speed.
-The far view camera angle (3rd person) is now dynamic which is major improvement over the old static one. The camera pans into the turns and moves as the car goes over bumps.
-Being able to change the wheels on standard cars is huge for me since some of my favorite cars are standards.

Still missing:
-All the cool original tracks such as Valencia! Or at least give us more tracks. ;(
-No damage on standard cars.
-No day/night transition at Daytona Road layout.
-Visible choppy car shadows are still there.
