Re: WK2 DownUnder

Frog, also page 53 of the manual states:

"ENGINE BREAK-IN
RECOMMENDATIONS
A long break-in period is not required for the
engine and drivetrain (transmission and axle) in
your vehicle.
Drive moderately during the first 300 miles
(500 km). After the initial 60 miles (100 km),
speeds up to 50 or 55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are
desirable.
While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration
within the limits of local traffic laws, contributes
to a good break-in. Wide-open throttle acceleration
in low gear can be detrimental and
should be avoided.
The engine oil installed in the engine at the
factory is a high-quality energy conserving type
lubricant. Oil changes should be consistent
with anticipated climate conditions under
which vehicle operations will occur. For the
recommended viscosity and quality grades refer
to “Maintenance Procedures” in “Maintaining
Your Vehicle”. NON-DETERGENT OR
STRAIGHT MINERAL OILS MUST NEVER BE
USED.
A new engine may consume some oil during its
first few thousand miles (kilometers) of operation.
This should be considered a normal part
of the break-in and not interpreted as an indication
of difficulty.
Additional Requirements For Diesel
Engine — If Equipped
During the first 1500 km avoid heavy loads, e.g.
driving at full throttle. Do not exceed 2/3 of the
maximum permissible engine speed for each
gear. Change gear in good time. Do not shift
down a gear manually in order to brake."

Are you serious? That car was supposed to have been transported early last week.
Are you sure it is not sitting in their showroom?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I just received my buildsheet.
If someone already has had one of these, can you advise where the upholstery colour is mentioned?
I have looked over it twice, and cannot see any reference to the interior upholstey colour.
I can confirm that the radio has a 40Gb HDD with 20gb available (XREP) code

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I looked under that Optional Extras section, and can see
*GL: Leather Trim Seats w/Edge Welting
-X9: Black
As I ordered Beige Seats, I suspect somone stuffed up and the seats are in fact black.

Good Luck with the pickup. I was stuffed around just as much when picking my jeep up. It dissappeared at prix car for a while, then they wouldn't release it to the truck driver, then the dealer took they're time fitting the tow bar.

I know it doesn't help you get your jeep quicker but atleast you know you aren't the only one, coz I know it felt like some kind of conspiracy and they just didn't want me to have the jeep
