Re: WK2 DownUnder

John47,

If you get a car in Feb 2012 from a Sept 2011 order I will be envious!

Placed my order on 30th May and expect delivery in mid Jan 2012. The car is on a boat now heading out into the Pacific (tracked it the other night as it approached the Panama Canal and then swapped to a web cam to watch the ship sail into the canal).

Have been seeing a couple of jeeps around Adelaide in the last few weeks and just cant wait for mine to arrive!

Cheers, Brig

What did you order Brig? Any customisations?

BTW, Operation Jeep is commencing today for me, I am sending my parents car back to Perth today (I was borrowing it until I get my JGC), and Rolfe Motors are going to provide me with a loan car until I get my Jeep.

It works out well, because it also puts pressure on them to give me my car, while I'm using their rental.

Will report back with what I get, it will probably be a 1995 Chrysler Neon or something hahaha.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Spentan I was just called from Rolfe and told that the all vehicles on that ship won't be at Rolfe until the 19th, so a 23rd Dec delivery is expected. What story did you get.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Sorry to hear you Canberra guys are having to wait the extra week to get your delivery. Must be frustrating to know the cars are simply sitting around in the Minto yard.
I am assuming the ETA at the dealer is simply an ETA and not a definite, as once the formalities and inspection are completed, those cars would be shipped immediately, and we know it is just 3-4 hrs from Minto to Canberra.
Would be interested to know whether any other cars off the Aniara have yet arrived at Dealers. Anyone????
As a consolation, you could imagine my GC, It is probably still sitting in the ground as iron ore, yet to be mined.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I just came from there (about 15 mins ago), and Aaron showed me on a computer that the car will be in on the 15th of Dec and hoping for P-D on the 16th, and delivery by then too. I told him about me going to Syd on the 16th and wanting it for then, and he said if it comes in by 9:30AM on the Thursday (15th) then they will have it P-D'd for me ready by that afternoon.

Which means I will most probably be taking their rental to sydney. ah well, 600kms of constant cruise control speed may not be too good for the car so early in its life anyway.

It is a bit frustrating, but yeah, what can we do, the dealers have us by the balls.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

As i mentioned earlier I got the same basic timeline, 16th would be earliest, dealer will probably get it on the 15th, then gotta rego and add stuff.

Apparently they need to put the rear camera on mine, i dont know if this is because of the tow bar getting fitted or it needs to be done to all of them

yer, My dealer said he'll organize for rego on the 14th, that way I pay for an extra day of rego (kinda), but its all ready to go as soon as it arrives.

I thought you were getting a Overland. Not correct?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi Spentan,

I have a Bright Silver 3.0CRD Overland. Went for the Offroad Pack basically to get the 18inch wheels. Dealer will be adding a tow bar for me but apart from that its stock standard.

Problem with delivery delay might have been because no one could find Adelaide on a map!

Cheers, Brig

That's understandable. Don't you just hang a left at Broken Hill?
