Please keep watch how your climate system behaves Lewie. There are a ton of people who are hoping for a solution to their hot/cold lucky dip and maybe 13.19 is the magic ticket.

Maybe it's just got more of the SRT stuff like the drag stats and extended gauges? Well, even the CRD could use that occasionally

Cheers,

On the way to work this morning, had drivers side on 21 deg and passenger was on 22 deg. Drivers side was fine but the passenger was blowing very hot. Had to reduce passenger side right down to low before it cooled down, then bought it back up to 2 deg and seemed to be ok. So, looks like it doesn't fix the air con issues, but at least I can use the VR to play song "it's getting hot in here"....

Hey check and see if you've got a Low Range button where your Launch Control should be

This is actually a test to see how much o the forum you've read. It will otherwise remain an "in joke"

Cheers,
Steve

Hi Blakey, Rizzuto

Adelaide City Jeep have advised that Prix Cars should be delivering to Adelaide 25-28Aug13 (sourse Jeep Aus), so that DD should be before 5/09 Problem might be that Prix received 2 ship loads within 3 days. (of cause you did hand over required $$s to Veronica for early delivery, )

Lol... Yep, launch control button there, ready and waiting for the run in period to be completed.

Your joke wasn't wasted... This forum has kept me company during the long long wait for delivery (since May, not as long as some)

Sheesh... if I'd been reading that long I'd have cancelled our order

Joking guys, but the "squeaky wheels" still scare the cr@p outta me, particularly because we've bought as many of the bits which seem to fu(k up as is possible!

Ciao,
Steve

Pointless comparison in my opinion.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Finally got my E number today.

Sent the details to Milous and in less than an hour had the build sheet and tracking details. What an incredible service - thanks Milous.

Looks like the car is at Curtis Bay already. Starting to get excited.

It is an unusual comparison, but I was surprised how well the SRT did against the Audi, as Carsguide are generally are only for Euros.

I would love to see a Diesel SRT with the Lambo's version of the Motori v6.

My dealer wouldn't give me one. It was only after ringing Chrysler Customer Service. They said they wouldn't release E numbers until the vehicle actually existed and then told me my vehicle was built so I asked for the E number and was given it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

They must now be checking that the order was correct before releasing the E number. I guess they have screwed up so many orders that they are now trying to reduce the bad exposure. If a car comes off the assembly line, and found to be with the wrong options, they will most likely have another car built and assigned without the owner being aware of the issues.
