I think the motor vehicle carriers like the Aniara are a little different as they are RORO (roll on Roll off) and it takes a lot to reorganise a well packed ship. Certainly container ships are a lot more flexible with the loading / unloading.

lets hope we see her in the Brisbane river tomorrow!

Maybe someone with a build sheet for a STD CRD Laredo could confirm?

I have a laredo std and the build sheet shows the 230mm axle and the 3.45 diff and HD brakes.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

If it is scheduled to dock at Brisbane 30/12 and Port Kembla on 4/12, is there any way delivery is possible in Canberra around 14th December?

I've got a trip to Sydney on the 16th which I wanna be able to take the new car up. :S

You'll be close. I have been told delivery for mine will be 9th Dec - 9 days after docking - It needs to be trucked 2 hrs from the Port to Toowoomba (similar to Canberra) the only difference is I think they run through the compliance at a yard near the port rather than being trucked to sydney then to be trucked back down the Hume Hway.

On a side note: I saw two new JGC's in about two minutes driving around at lunch today, a Brilliant black and a Stone white both looked great! Also followed a White gold through the northern suburbs of Brisbane on Sunday - so new even had the flipper glass instructions still on the back door!

Spentan, not sure what experience you have had but Rolfe motors hasn't provided any update since I ordered the car. Thank God for this site..

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I think Spentan will find that the car goes from Port Kembla to Minto, then from Minto to Canberra.
If they are running as per normal, the car will be at Minto for about 7-10days if there are no issues.

Yeah, I know it'll be close. FFS, why oh why did Jeep make such an awesome product (can't find anything else that I love more).

Hope the White Gold one wasn't mine with the New Saddle/Black Interior. I'm gonna scream if I don't get my car!

Dean Milton/Aaron Nixon were my salesman/sales manager, and Dean gave me a call a couple of months ago, to tell me that it'll be here in November. Haven't heard back since then. I'm waiting for a callback from Dean, basically I want them to hurry it up once it gets into Aus.

Once it reaches Aus, there's no more available tracking is there? Hopefully it is not more than 10 days, I'm hoping to get it before the 16th of Dec. (ETA for Discharge is set as 4/12/11).

Ah well, nothing we can really do apart from heckle our dealers. I need to get Premium Paint removed from my contract (was originally Blackberry), I hope that they will not change the price of the car (ended up getting it for about 72k+ driveaway (Hemi Overland))

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just looked on the 2wglobal web site and the arrival date of Aniara into Brisbane has been put back by 1 day to 1/12. So it looks loke we will not be seeing her in teh Brisbane River tomorrow as hoped.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Once the car arrives on Ozzie soil, it can then be tracked by the dealer.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Took delivery of mine recently and it took 18 days to get from Port Kembla to the dealers, then another 5 days to fit extras. Would appear compliance was done as I was advised would be an October date but shows November.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Looks like pushing a XMAS delivery is that is the case for those on the ANIARA like me..

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Mine took over a month from landing at Port Kembla to pickup at the dealership. Was suppossedly held up at Prix Car but who knows the real reason. Everything on the Car looks fine except for having the wrong wood trim... But at the same time somebody else on here who had their GC on the same boat received theirs within two weeks.
