I just wanted to tell you that I said goodbye to my old Weber today when the new one arrived. I knew it had been here a long time, but was amused when I found the old "grilling guide" and receipt. We bought the grill on 12/16/1997 and the new one came today - 12/18/2013!! The old one has been in use for 16 years!! Pretty impressive! We DID put a few new parts in over the years, but stil - I'm pleased that it lasted so long. Hope the new one continues to please as the old one did!
Thanks for being reliable and professional!
