First they got the higgs mass wrong (according to 2 independent measurements) but later they found a way to get the correct mass (after the mass already had been determined via LHC).

The geometric picture that emerges is that space-time is the product of an ordinary spin manifold (for which the theory would deliver Einstein gravity) by a finite noncommutative geometry F. The discrete space F is of KO-dimension 6 modulo 8 and of metric dimension 0, and accounts for all the intricacies of the standard model with its spontaneous symmetry breaking Higgs sector.

This looks too good to be true to me.a main advantage of the model is that it gives a geometric interpretation for all the parameters in the standard model. In particular, this leaves room for predictions about the Yukawa couplings, through the geometry of the Dirac operator.
