Maybe one of these isolators can be used to "reboot" more easily ...

Re: Almost into a Jeep

Basically just gotta find the best deal I can now on an Overland CRD.[/QUOTE]

Most dealers won't stray too far away from RRP plus a few throw in accessories. However, as Enforcer warns you could be in for a 6 month wait which most folk on this forum will agree is excruciating!

Beware of any dealer who'll throw in an accessory or 2 to lock you in on a long, long delivery time.

Just weight up your options, you may be much better off paying RRP with no freebies if you can get into it 3-4 months or much sooner. Also, look outside of the Melbourne market.

I'm in Brisbane and the 3 main players here had no Overland CRD, 1 tried hard to get me into floor stock another wanted me to sign up for a +6 month wait. I had already sold my Prado so I needed something sooner. I then called a dealer in Sydney (Suttons) who confirmed they had an Inferno Red that had just come off the line in Detroit and was untagged and was about to board a vessel. They bought it for their own dealership probably for the DP to drive around in. I put down a deposit and 5-6 weeks later I was in it. I was fortunate and happened to make a call at the right time

The point is the "best deal" as you say may not be the best option for you particularly if Overland CRD's may not be readily avail in Melb. You may want to check the Sydney & Brisbane markets to see what's around before you commit.

Pretty sure there at least two Overland CRD's needing good homes within the next few weeks. I would recommend finding the contact details of the main Australian dealers, Vic, NSW and Qld and requesting details of stock availablity. They can usually look ahead a month or so. Take a look at carsales. There's 9 available right now across the country. Unless you are after a specialised colour (reds, blues, greens) or trim (saddle, light frost), this might be the way to go.

Re: Almost into a Jeep

Maybe I should sell mine, due for delivery within a few weeks, and order another one?

Ha Ha. Maybe I should club myself over the head.

I've got an idea, I could sell mine in advance (due June) and buy the one offered by the dealer due next week for the extra $3k he wants. Can I borrow the club after you!

Re: Almost into a Jeep

Ordered an Overland CRD. At this stage it is Mineral Grey but may change it to Maximum Steel, need the weekend to mull it over.
Got a good price for it too ( I think) and will also be getting the towbar and roof bars fitted as part of the deal.

I almost bought one from another dealer that had one in stock but in True Blue, which wasn't on my list of favourite colours. Thought about it and decided that this will be a keeper so didn't really want a colour I wouldn't be 100% happy with.

I've decided to wait for one. the lease isn't up on my current car until the end of June and it's not like I need to replace it straight away. We currently have a spare car so I'm advertising both and I'll drive whatever doesn't sell first until the Jeep arrives.

It will come around soon enough.
Cheers for everyone's input. I look forward to hanging around.............may have to join now so I can track it too....hehe.

Matty
