After quite a bit of research, visits to dealers etc., I pulled the trigger on a new Deluxe 28 SHO yesterday. Initial observations are good so far except for the headlight, but I knew that before I bought it - the stock headlight will be replaced by LED's, just haven't decided where to put them yet. I was a little apprehensive about Auto-Turn, but after playing a bit yesterday, so far so good. It's certainly a different feel, but I think it will be OK. We are supposed to receive 15 cm of snow today, so I'll have a chance to try it out some a little later. We are supposed to have a more substantial storm Wednesday/Thursday - can't wait to try out the new machine on real snow. I'll try to post a review once I've had a chance to really try it out.
