Material wise, I would say its more than a cosmetic. Slowly, carbon fibre would extended to other parts of vehicle, stronger, less weight.

Hi Snuke,

thanks mate you're a legend! The update fixed the cutting balance issue and, although it may be my imagination, the sound quality seems a lot cleaner - much improved surround sound and equalisation.

It's a shame the service guys just shrugged their shoulders when I brought the issue to their attention on the 1 week check, but I guess the increasing complexities of vehicle software & electronics make their job more and more difficult.

Cheers,
Steve.

wow. My Overland is just under 3 months and I don't think I've done 3500km yet! We have to take Mrs OzScot's Tarago when we go anywhere far with the kids, dog, pram, etc

Cheers,

I would have liked them to spend an extra $30 on the revere camera lol. I can't wait to give the truck a good workout my first 4x4 trip this weekend.

No. The carbon fibre windscreen, with heads-up display on the non transparent surface incorporated with the Active Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning systems is on the boards. This will also interface with the rain sensing wiper system as well as introduce a wiper washer system on the inside of the screen to avoid static dust buildup. The carbon fibre is to come in 2 colours, being light black and the other dark black.
