Going to bite the bullet and try and get one this week.

I've just got a regular TV not an HD one, if I buy a premium package, will I still need to get a different lead for it?

Hope so. My (2nd) 360 is on its way out and want to get it replaced with an HDMI version if I can.

You be fine. Though I guess you might want to get a HD screen for the visuals later on.

My brothers 360 got the red lights the other day. Just took it back to the shop and they swapped it without question. Think it was Woolies. Hopefully everywhere is the same.

I have a wireless broadband router and I was assuming I can simply connect the X-Box into that to go online? Or am I talking bollocks?

yep, just connect it up with an ethernet cable, if you cant do that you can buy a wireless adapter for the 360.
