That's roughly 2k or 3.7% below RRP. Ok...ish if you can take it home right now. I managed ~10% below RRP for my Overland but have to wait until next Feb.

Warning: My opinion only .... and not many people listen to my opinion

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Ive seen 55k with (aftermarket) leather, towbar (and paint) mentioned around the place. Discussion I had with a dealer recently was with the items above and a factory roof for 57k (driveway). (Wifes gotta have the 'roof...)

PS: Cant remember delivery period - March?? Had considered tru blue but prob now leaning towards Min Grey - or max steel if available in Aus(?)

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just got a call from Jeep, apparently they found a True Blue on the boat, so mine is already on the way.

True blue CRD Laredo, should be here mid January

Which boat? Hopefully not the Aniara cos I was hoping for a Mid-December Delivery.

But that is looking optimistic with docking in Port Kembla scheduled for 3rd Dec, and it still needs to come to canberra

Re: WK2 DownUnder

There is actually a White CRD Laredo on that same boat as yours which i was looking at but didnt want white.

No idea what boat i am on, or any details, dealer literally rang up and said "Your car is on a boat, should be here in January" which i see as good because iw as expecting least Feb, or later for True Blue. They originally said May for the True Blue.

Question Re: WK2 DownUnder

Does anyone know what the margin the dealers are working to?
How do I know what a good deal is? Although i might not want to know, it a bit late now
The Laredo is sub $30k in the US and $50k on the road here and iam sure Jeep Australia dont pay reatail for them.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Xero,
The dealers are not really going to do much dealing as they have a huge demand and no stock.
I would be more worried about actually getting your hands on one more than getting a good deal. Be happy if you get your car within the next 3 months and you only pay retail.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Anyone else read the November issue of "Overlander" Magazine and the story on air suspension including the new Grand? The Disco 4 also featured.

Ill be honest, I'm quite dissappointed. Although I shouldn't be, because all the early videos of them off-road showed virtually no wheel travel.
Was sorry to see the Disco system so superior in wheel travel.
