new features still not available

so it looks like an updated 730n in january, with sirius travel link and some other stuff, wonder if it is worth the wait......

also, in mid november a different power steering system.....


lane change warning in december.....

otherwise seems like all the late available stuff can be ordered....

I think i still wanna wait for everything, and the deals should be much better once everybody has some overlands in stock....

Re: new features still not available

Different power steering system? Kind of worries me.... why do they need a new power steering system?

Probably because of weight, and it needs no belt to turn it. I think it remains to be seen whether it is a better system however. My 1996 JGC went 235,000 miles and the power steering never gave a problem even once.

It says it is electro hydraulic so likely some benefits in weight and efficiency

Re: new features still not available

I like the electric power steering system in my Audis. Aside from being lighter and scavenging less power from the engine (and bump up in fuel economy), the electric systems can be tailored to the vehicle for better feel at speed and reduced effort in parking lot situations. When it's done right, electric power steering is a win-win.

Actually, to be serious, there's talk about an 8 speed transmission in the 2012s.

8-Speed Box Before Long?

The eight-speed box is reportedly all but definite for 2012.
