You mentioned previously the possibility of the Harmon Kardon audio, but not 100% on this. My dealer had no idea what I was talking about when asked.

I'm guessing a July build would mean an MY13 car, yes?

Please dont expect the dealer to know anything, except "perhaps" what a Jeep looks like. Beyond that, they appear to have had no training. This is probably a result in most Jeep dealerships also being dealers of several other brands of cars. For example, I was talking to one dealer today about the Recovery Hooks and he had no idea what I was talking about.

Bugger that!!................not waiting 14 months for delivery..............

That's what's confusing me. The thread on the MY13 changes states that the order books open 6th June with production starting 2nd July.
My order went in prior to 6th June but my production will most likely be after 2nd July.

I guess that even though I ordered before MY13 specs were confirmed but the build is after, then it'll be an MY13, correct?

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Correct. Unless Jeep Aust found an unallocated car, that was pre ordered by them and is being currently built, your car should be a MY13. To confirm, request, demand, bang fists on the desk, and obtain an Order Number. Once you have that, all will be revealed.
The way I read it, Jeep US have a backlog of Orders to fulfill prior to commencing builds for MY13. They need those completed by end of June. That gives them a few days to retool for the new build on 2nd July.
In order that they have work to go on with for the new year model, they will start taking orders for them in early June.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Thanks Allan, suspected as much.
My dealer hasn't been allocated an E number yet (not that they found on my file anyway).

BTW, sold your TTG yet?

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Picked mine up at 6pm last night. Towbar was on, rear recovery hook was replaced, but parking sensors were forgotten. Making a time to take it back in for those. Fitting all the bash plates I got from the US for a discounted labour charge to compensate.

Quick drive last night - it is awesome. Got a few pages into the manual before bed. Found the section where it can read out text messages, and reply?? Has anyone used that?

Will post daylight pics and more reviews in the next week.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Congratulations. It was a long wait. Can't understand how they can miss adding delivery items. Leads me to suspect they forgot to order them. Sounds a little like aftermarkets ones too, so check the paint carefully.
I also have read about the Memo function, but have not as yet had a try.
Did you get the old Green Warranty manual, or the current white/blue one? Looking forward to the new colour piccys.
