I have a 2003 era Weber Genesis that is still going strong and I grill on it at least once a week. The hinge for the hood rusted through around the 10 year mark and Weber sent me an entire new hood for free. Huge thumbs up to their customer service. I went ahead and refurbished a few smaller items like the gas igniter and also upgraded to some custom made stainless steel grates. The grates are similar in design to those found on the Summit series, but even more heavy duty (almost 10mm thick). Surprisingly, my original burners are still working great.

I agree that the side burner doesn't get much use. The only time I turn mine on is when I'm getting the WSM ready and need to light the charcoal chimney starter.

Searing burners are a must have in my opinion. I personally don't have one -- and it's my only regret with my grill -- but I've used them on other people's grill and they do a fantastic job with steaks. You aren't going to get a perfect crust on a gas grill without one. I guess this is less of a dealbreaker because you also have a BGE and get the job done there.

I am a lifelong fan of waiting if you have to to end up with what you really want. The instant gratification stuff we've all grown used to is nice. I have found for this simpleton that waiting sometimes to get exactly what I really want is even better. YMMV
