Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Mine is going on the transporter from the dealer today. Unfortunately I won't have it for the weekend... just. Looks like Monday or Tuesday now.

To be honest I do not know how long it was between ship and dealer. I had a deal where the dealer in NSW would transport it to my door in Brisbane (with a full tank). He put it on the transporter Friday afternoon, I am still waiting for the transport company to tell me when they will get it here. The dealer is only less than 3hrs away. I hope to hear more today.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

FINALLY! It arrived this afternoon! A nice stream of torque from the CRD and my 2yo loves the "TV" in the back.

Now I am trying to ascertain whether I am being pedantic of whether I have a genuine gripe. When I removed the rear number plate (to install my personalised plates) I found they had drilled two holes in the liftgate above where the large square holes are. This to the point where I had to drill holes in the rim of the number plate to have it clear the camera above to get the number plate cover on (see photo). Is this what everyone else has experienced or is this dodgy?

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

my car was unloaded off the boat today too. I got a call from the dealer last week saying it should be ready for pick up around the first week of November.

Dodgy, but not uncommon. Dealers are idiots. Looks like the holes line up with the factory ones anyway so I don't know why they removed the black rubber and drilled in the metal. I got Lakin plate brackets for my personalised plates and told my dealer multiple times not to install plates. I'd be pissed if someone drilled holes in my car and would consider making them replace the lift gate.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

If your number plate fits the factory holes (squares- which I assume had rubber grommets) I would be very upset, and would be presenting myself at the dealership to complain and demand a fix.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Thanks guys. I'm not exactly sure what was supposed to be in those top square holes to mount onto (anyone have pics?). I found a little kit in the car which had rubber pads for the bottom and some large screws all of which were not fitted. I fitted the bottom pads and used the small screws the dealer used in the rim of the number plate. Not entirely happy though.
One concern is rust could develop then what..... A case for a new liftgate?
