We have not seen noticeable issues with dataset 47.4 with 2011-2013 cars but yes you might need dataset 47.4 for the cars coming out of production now. Dataset 46.3 was very stable for earlier cars and unless you want to try new features, I dont see you to change over to new set immidiately. This is my personal opinion. Datasets will keep changing in future, that doesnt mean you should continue to chase them.

In reality, most of the people just want few features to be added and once they are done, they dont want further chnages.
Any new features too would only come if you first flashed the firmware on an ECU, as without that, you are using the identical CAFD as what is already on the car.
