Welcome and congrats. Supply does seem to be freeing up a little. Nice colour too!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Jan delivery? That is super fast.
Lucky for you, your car had already been built, and was unallocated. You could very well have been waiting till June next year.
Get the VIN and you can track it's location.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Did he say which year?

As Overlands, let alone CRD versions have been in short supply in the past then you are Super Lucky. By a Lotto ticket as well and when you get the six numbers you can share it with all your friends on the Jeepgarage Forums.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

It was most likely a cancelled order from someone who gave up waiting.

Easier said than done. Once the dealer has your deposit there is no incentive for him to do more. All he has to do is wait.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just had a chat to my dealer,

Car has not arrived at "Pre-Car" yet, I hope that he is referring to the "Pre-Delivery" section of the dealer, and not the place in Minto. (Otherwise it will definitely not be ready for Thursday's delivery).

What is good though, is that I am still enjoying the White Gold V6 Laredo that I am driving in the meantime. I've already put around 300kms on it, taking the total to just over 450kms.

Everytime I get a chance, I sneak a look, This reaction occurs

Re: WK2 DownUnder

looks like the date I was told it was going to arrive at the dealer (19th) is near the mark.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I think you will find that "PRE CAR" is in fact PRIX CAR.
If that is the case, I think it is absolute BS from the dealer. It would have gone to Prix Car within 48hrs of disembarkation, as they do not have the room to store those cars at the wharf. They want them out of there as soon as possible.
I wonder if a call to Minto , asking them if they have the stock from that ship would provide a response?
Anyone in Sydney have a car on the ANIARA?

Hmm, either way, it doesn't really help me if my dealer is saying they're not at Prix Car, and it actually is.

Now that I've got the demo v6 laredo, i dont really care, i'm racking up the kms on their own demo. The onus is on them to give me my car sooner
