The trick is to put your left foot on the foot brake and give it a bit of gas to wind up the turbo, then when the lights go to green - away...

Here is a demo :



Not that I would do that myself....

Not long now..
Reading the German specs looks like the diesel has 184kw v our 177kw. Is this a Euro specific tune or is there an engine update for the MY14? Not that a few kw will make a noticeable difference.
Cheers

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

The Salome is about 20kms from Port Kembla. I'm in Port Douglas at the moment and flying home to Sydney this arvo so I probably won't be able to see it unload. I might be able to catch a glimpse of 'my' new car tomorrow if its still there... If anyone happens to see any of the cars being unloaded, I'd be keen to see any happy snaps of a black SRT ;o)

Yes, I'm starting to feel like I did as a child on Christmas Eve.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hello Milous,

If an order is at D1 Stage, how long (Days) does it take, approximately for the following to occur:

1) How long does it take for the VIN number to be issued?
2) How long does it take for the build sheet to become available?
3) How long does production take to build the order?
4) How long does it take to go through quality control before release?
5) How long does it take to get to the docks for shipment?
6) How long does it normally take to ship to Australia?

Appreciate an idea of the timeline.

Thank you.......Josephr

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

At last I feel that my GC Limited is on the way. It passed through the Panama Canal last night on the Tamesis, and is due in Melbourne around the 22nd.
