Well, maybe. When the Ford car plant closed at Liverpool, I had a pal who worked there in the gearbox assembly workshop. He reckoned you'd be fool to buy any of the last cars built cos they used all the leftover scrap to complete them.

The point I was making is that when something is coming to the end of production all the gremlins have been ironed out - with a brand new product it's often the customers who are the guinea pigs!!!
