New SW Stella

 Well well. I have just heard that after a mere 5 years the SW Stella 20000 is being replaced with a new model plus a 30000 as well in 2013. Very interesting.

This link has some info worth looking at. Nothing confirmed yet! I'm more interested in the runout sale. Might get myself a couple of 2008 models when they go for a steal!
