There's always one in the crowd... The pics were taken and edited on iOS 7 including the filters.

Agree with others - Narellan is very good. Natasha on the desk and Scott Tidyman is the service manager.

Last week I did take my GC in to Castle hill for the problem with the airbag light, a small warranty issue. Their service manager - Neville Bennett has gone and young rob, who has been there from Holden days, is now the manager. Young girl Summer on the desk - we should send her down to Narrellan and have her trained up by Natasha. Can someone arrange this please?

Must be a problem because the car still appears as white, and the wheels black.

Perhaps Summer needs a Spring in her step?

Thanks for the suggestion of listening on youtube, I've already done lots of that, however I want to actually hear it for real. There's a world of difference between hearing something like that for real and having someone with a cameraphone record and then upload it to youtube. It's also very difficult to get a sense of volume from a clip found on the web.

So I'll ask again, if anyone has a 6.4 Grand Cherokee with an aftermarket exhaust fitted, I'd love to hear it. I'm in Sydney and happy to travel somewhere nearby to have a listen.

Cheers,

GB

I really love the sound of the billy boat exhaust for the 6.4 engine in the 300C, though they've not released one for the GC yet. Mike at B B suggests early next year for theirs but I'd like to hear an ATAK when I can so I can make a call on whether I really like it or whether I should wait for B B...

Have a search through the SRT threads. Borla also make an "S Type" axle back system that is slightly less overt. From all reports I have read, there is no drone with the Borla systems. Remember, they are axle back systems, not cat back. Another popular option is Magnaflow cat backs.

Borla Atak is what i'll be getting, 'coz i'm still a big kid lol.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Can someone explain the logic behind designing a capless fuel filler? I am no fan of this as I cannot wash the fuel filler area without concern of water going into the fuel tank. However, if someone has another take on this, I'm happy to listen. Thanks,

The logic, in the states there must be alot of people who forget to put the cap back on....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Use paper towels, it's a connivence thing.
I like it, I just make sure I shake it well before pulling it out.

Remember, more than three shakes and you're just playing with it.
