I recently ordered a new Baratza Vario, but it seems to be old stock because it has the faceplate without the letters and numbers. Should I return the unit or have them send me the new faceplate? My concern is that Baratza may have made subtle improvements that I will miss out on.

Thanks!

Edit: Disregard. The vendor is replacing without any hassle thankfully.

Hi,
  They might send you a new the newest faceplate (perhaps in exchange for the other one).
  They have made at least one minor change, summer 2012 as far as I know from my correspondence with them. They've beefed up the plastic tabs that hold the top burr carrier in place, this makes more accurate shifting between espresso and filter/coarser grinds, overall improved accuracy and stability. They sent me this new part as I had an older one with some accuracy problems on a refurb I had just bought from them. It really holds the top burr in there tightly and they've since made a burr removal tool to make it easier to get the top burr out (sells for $10 on their website).
 I just noticed you are returning it, well then you should have this improvement!
