We are getting a (rebuilt) 1916 Mason and Hamlin AA grand and getting a live performance lx installed. The rebuilder doesnt want to do MH anymore and only wants to do Steinway, so we are getting a heck of a deal.
Yum...nice keys! (I also play, but only have my beloved Kurzweil...no place for a grand in the house)

Re: 2014 diesel production

Seeing lots of ride and drives the past week in EcoDiesels... Spoke to a General Motors Sales guy this morning who got to test one out. A lot of them seem to be "Around"

I am Santa, at least my Niece and Nephews think so; regardless, I need my new Black CRD Sleigh to deliver their Christmas presents. .....another 4 iPods I guess this year. Or Maybe 4 iPad minis...

Ecodiesel as in Jeep Ecodiesel? I hope that's not why ours aren't shipping, because they're using them a sales demos. Not sure which is worse, the test track or sales demos... :-)

Yikes.....you guys are scaring me. Since me, Shannon, wk2, and AMR have had ours sitting in the yard for a week or more, that's a lot of test drives. If I have 200 miles in mine when I get it, a used car discount will be demanded!

Definitely worse as Demos.... I do my "testing" in demos

Demo is one level above rental car

I doubt that is what's happening. But more than a couple of miles on it, I'll not be taking delivery. They can send me a new one. I've already told the dealer I want to know miles comming off of the truck, and I don't care if it's the first one they get, nobody gets to drive it further than the gas station (about 400 feet). This is a sold vehicle, it's not theirs.

I was going to let that ride for a while but no.... these were built months ago. Well prior to customer production.

They seem to be appearing at "Cherokee" sales training events in many cases.

That's an unrealistic demand. Good luck.

They are required to drive it as part of the Pre-Delivery Inspection.

Also they may drive the vehicle at the factory as part of the quality testing.

So there will be more than a "couple" of miles on it, but that applies to any manufacturer. Frankly the shuttle movements of the vehicles from one yard to another would give you more than a couple of miles.
