Re: Right hand drive WK2 in the UK today.

I noticed that the shifter is on the right side of the center console as it has switched sides with the cup holders. In the WK they said tough shit and left the setup for LHD orientation. I know Marlin can attest to that!

You are right. On my SRT8 I find it difficult to see the left side auto position for the air con. It is definitely set up for LHD.

Just an observation!!!
If it weren't for Winston Churchill and the Battle of Britain pilots, we would all be speaking German -- Brits and Yanks, alike.

On appearance the interior is a match for the German marks, not sure if the knobs and dash will feel German like though.

You, my friend, are one of the reasons why Americans are given a bad name, and laughed at.

You complete buffoon.

Re: Right hand drive WK2 in the UK today.

There are heaps of Overlands in Australia.
When I ordered my CRD Overland on Friday, they had 3 black, 1 silver and one grey on the floor. This si the Jeep dealer in Mosman.
All sold bar the black Overland without the rear DVD. I could have paid and driven out same day (well almost). The CRD I ordered should be here mid to late July as it is on the next boat apparently. Interesting that all the Overlands they had in stock were March 2011 build.
