Glad to read that you are finally in possession of your long awaited JGC.
I agree with your sentiment that the vehicle is great, but the hassle to get the vehicle delivered as specified and without defects is not what I expected.
My only disappointment so far is the standard of fit and finish of the body panels and trim. I have varying gaps and misaligned panels that detract from the vehicles appearance and quite frankly is (to me) indicative of poor quality control and lack of attention to detail on the factory floor. I also appreciate however, that the assemblers are put under very tight time constraints at each assembly station. That is, they don't have any more time than to throw it together.
My bonnet in the closed position was well below the front fender line. The 'fix' was to open the bonnet and make two full turns on the height adjustable bump stops, close the bonnet. Checked the alignment and backed off the right side one turn. All done. Total time I estimate to be less than 90 secs.
Fuel filler flap was an 'interference fit' (hard down) with the rear quarter panel at the bottom. Opened the flap, and using firm pressure at the hinged side, gave it a twist upwards. Two more attempts and it now fits with an even gap all around. Total time I estimate to be less than 3 minutes.
I still have to work out how to get the wheel arch plastic trims to fit neatly with the metal guards.
I think they could have squeezed these 'adjustments' into the comprehensive pre-delivery
Anyway, congratulations Rocksfly. Happy travelling. I'll race you for new Axles.....
PS. My wife want's to relegate me to the Polo so she can have the Jeep
