Haha, I'm in a similar boat, I ordered May 13th, and delivery is expected this week, so as of today, I've already waited 7 Months, 7 Days from Order to delivery.

And counting...

But yeah, nothing I can do, apparently the cars were held up at PrixCar, so meh.

nar, not sure.

My dealer has been very clear that they will let me know as soon as they receive any update on the car,

I'm personally hoping now that it is not delivered before Friday.

Because, that way I don't have to pay for my Jeep to just sit in my Garage while I'm on holiday in Perth from 23Dec-2Jan. (It can sit at the dealer instead), and I can keep my monies 'til then :P

In the meantime, I'm getting together a list of mods.

Thinking about the following, so far.

Volant CAI,
Tow Bar
Side Steps or rock rails, haven't decided yet, what are your opinions? (I'm 6ft9in anyway, so doesn't really matter to me, but I was looking into something that juts out, so that I can put the car to OR 2, and then no-one will ding my door in the Carpark).
Shark Fin Antenna - (Has anyone ordered this? I couldn't find the Jeep on VisualGarage)

hmm, I'm sure I could come up with more, but haven't thought about anything else yet. :P

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just got back from the dealer. New is that 4 cars from the shipment have been help up in customs due to grass seeds. No news when they will be released, obviously includes yours Spentan.

lol yeah, thats what his story for mine was too. But that was including the fact that it was still on the boat, and hadn't been offloaded.

So I was a bit of a skeptical hippo :P

Re: WK2 DownUnder

or just delays at Prix Car, I'm sure there is heaps of pressure on them to get as many cars complianced as possible before Xmas.

My dealer was adamant that it will be delivered this week, so we'll see how we go.
