I'm assuming that the hemi works nicely with 98ron? My 300c 5.7 used to love 98, hated 95/91
My dealer put a full tank of 98RON, I went with her to fill it up.
HEMI loves our 98RON

This weekend done 1500km one fill-up there was no 98ron, had 91 only.
lost 2.5lt/hkm in economy.
Filled up today with 98 80lt and done 200km gained some of it back.

About your delay.
Read somewhere that some export GC were shipped without their black trim, and the trim was sent to the dealers/PD to be fitted.

Haha, my dealer is a stinge, I think they have a bowser on site (and therefore its 91),

How much range do you get from the Hemi with 98RON?

Mine wasn't really delayed (or were you talking to Swampy), having requested an MY12 with the Saddle etc, It wasn't just an "off the shelf" kinda order.

Hopefully will get it in a couple of weeks zomgz

Re: WK2 DownUnder

How much ipod control do you get with the head unit. Or does it simply see the ipod as a hard drive?

Like do you get all playlists and stuff appearing on screen?

This is for base model unit, 430 or 431 or whatever it is

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Aniara status underway, to Brisbane...been in some serious holding pattern looks like a few false starts on the tracking website.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I saw it was on a mooring off Point Cartwright for the night. But is now heading towards the Docks.
Your car should be on the dock this afternoon.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I must be bored. I am watching this ship "Ariana", which is currently waiting for a Pilot to board it in Moreton Bay, and I dont even have a car onboard.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hey Sege,

When in May did you order yours? My Silver Overland 3.0 is currently on a boat cruising down past Georgia towards the Florida coast! Delivery into Adelaide is 5th Jan!

Cheers, Don
