Yep, this is the place in Yarraville. I have just shot them an e-mail asking if they support the Brembos on the 2014 SRT. I would say they would - but don't see Jeep GC SRT in their list. Will let you know when I hear back.

And yeah, Spider Monkey wheels would be even worse to clean!

Been noticing A lot more Jeeps on the road too. More GC my13s but My14s of other models. They do seem more common then the Holden's. only saw my first VF model on the road today to be honest. I wonder where they are all hiding ?

I upgraded my membership and contacted Milous for the build sheet. Couldn't believe how quick he responded! Awesome service

Found out my SRT is already built and will be loaded on the ship this week. Should arrive 5th Oct
Had a look through the build sheet and yep NO spider monkey rims Upset to say the least because I specifically asked for them. Not sure if I should go have another chat to the dealer or wait for the car to arrive to crack it I highly doubt the rims would be changed when it arrives?

I missed the perfect photo shot last week. I parked in the local shopping centre... and when I returned... another my14 was parked next to mine.

Id ask them politely to confirm your order in writing. Then when it comes, crack it and try and get free stuff thrown in as well as the correct wheels fitted at the first service.

You lot are playing an adult version of 'Spotto' or 'Snotto' as my child calls it because he likes green more than yellow.

(For any US folk reading this thread - Spotto is a traditional Australian car game played by children that everytime they see a yellow car on the road they call 'Spotto' and whoever has the greatest number at the end of the journey wins)

I'm the only '14 Overland (or any other '14 variant) over our way at the moment, which surprises me. All the '13s I see (which is only a handful) I've seen for at least 8-12 months - no new ones spied as yet.

I always found Punch Buggy to be a much more fun game

I remember playing that game in the mid 70's in the back of a toyota mark ii on our yearly trek from sale in victoria to mermaid beach on the gold coast (but for us it was car makes not colours) so this looking for my14's is yet another thing I can blame on my parents .... now it seems more important for the majority of kids to either play their psp's or is ghst pps's or watch dvd's while in the car.... thank goodness the jeep has 2 usb ports in the rear to keep everything charged

We play yellow car, punch buggy, pinch mini and a new addition since we have had our Jeep - slap wrangler. My wife hates that game. Didn't realize there were so many wranglers on the road.

Well I just learnt something new tonight courtesy of Wiki. Never heard of it before which is not surprising because growing up in NZ, we just counted sheep. (At least we learnt to count up to the tens of thousands)

Holy crap - Vic to Qld in a mark II.

I do remember though going from Christchurch to Queenstown (not the best roads back then in the '60s and we have mountains and stuff to go through) in a Humber. They must have been built like the proverbial brick sh..house when I think about it.

Ohh... I like the sound of slap-wrangler. Yes, I pass a few of them. What are the rules?

Rules??? A game created by a 15 year old boy needs no rules!

First to see a wrangler yells "slap wrangler" and slaps the closet person to them. Simple.
