Got my MY15 two weeks early

Picked up my new white MY15 last night. Had to go interstate for work at 6am this morning unfortunately, so haven't done much other than drive it home. Hope to get the Pirelli's replaced by the weekend for better ride comfort for some nice windy B and C road action over the weekend.

Re: Got my MY15 two weeks early

Always a good omen when ride turns up early and makes for a happy customer. Pain having to travel and not get time in the hot seat.

Will be interested in your report on the new rubber you are getting fitted. Not sure I want to be replacing mega expensive Pirelli rubber potentially ever 20,000 kilometres.

I checked on mine this evening and still end of first week December.

Re: Got my MY15 two weeks early

Thanks everyone :-)

Had a load of trouble trying to find a tyre outlet that were in anyway helpful. Tried 5 tyre shops in the vicinity of my work, all of them among the larger retail chains, not one of them had 295/45R20's in stock. 2 of them even tried to tell me that the Pirelli's were the ONLY make of tyre that would fit my car. That 5h1t may have worked before the invention of the Internet, but in this day and age when anyone with basic computer skills can do 5 minutes of searching and find any number of options it really does them no favors. They immediately make themselves look either incompetent or deceitful, either way I'd never deal with them or recommend them to others.

Ended up finding a small, locally owned and brand unaffiliated shop that were able to get me 4 x 295/45R20's in for fitting on Friday. I was going to go for a set of the Toyo Proxes S/T II 114V tyres, however they couldn't source a full set. Ended up going with a set of Nankang SP-7 114H as that was the only complete set they could source overnight. Perhaps not the best available, but they seem to get ok reviews and are noticeably smoother on the bumps than the Pirelli's.

Did about 200kms yesterday up through the Macedon Ranges just north of Melbourne. Managed to achieve an 11.5l\100km average with very tame driving and Eco mode off. Pretty impressive considering they are windy and very undulating roads through there. That is very comparable to the 2011 Toyota Rav SX6 that we had before the Jeep.
