My overland went there on 28/2 and there is still no indication from them when they will get around to putting a compliance plate on and releasing it. Must be a pretty big backlog.
Could you kindly share with me how you found out, your vehicle was moved to Prixcars ? I'd be surprised if the dealer volunteered to provide this info.

I have not heard of those shipments being yet released from PrixCars. Maybe your news is that they have been released.
Milous confirms that mine was unloaded at Port Kembla on the 13th March, about 5 days after the dealer informed me that the vehicle is on its way in the cargo ship.

Yes it's standard on all AUS models, but not ex-factory - they are all fitted at the dealer, I believe.

I rang AQIS at Port Kembla who confirmed it had been released on that date, along with 59 other jeeps. They gave me the number of the port authority who told me jack because I wasn't their customer. Later that day I was talking to the dealer and told him it had been released from customs. He checked the computer and confirmed the vehicle had physically been collected and was at prixcars.

You can expect a wait of approx 2-4 weeks after the cars are disembarked off the ship. Melb and Syd seem to be the worst.
Generally the cars get cleared from the wharf within 2 days, then go to Prixcars for quarantine inspection and the fitting of compliance plates. That is where the holdup generally lies.
Once the cars clear Prixcars, it generally takes a few days to reach the dealership, and another few days for the dealer to fit any accessories you ordered.

Yep the reversing camera is part of the standard package for the Laredo - except I understand for all Australian Jeeps the cameras are fitted by the dealer in the predelivery - don't know why they don't come fitted from the factory.
It certainly looks an integrated package and works great.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

The dealer rang me today and has been told that my car will be released from Prixcar today or tomorrow morning and transported for delivery. Looks like I will be picking it up on Friday afternoon. The dealer was also extremely apologetic regarding the delay and grateful for my patience, so he offered to compensate me for the delay. I wonder what he has in mind? Pretty decent of him as the delay has been out of his control. Goes to show that stamping one's feet and whining doesn't always get results.

He's previously agreed to slushmats. What should I hit him up for? I was thinking maybe sidesteps or discounted servicing. Any other suggestions?

When you arrive to collect the car look totally shocked and say.... That isn't a SRT8 !

Overlands come already fitted.
Think it is only the laredo is not fitted. They are not standard on the US model.

Thought yours is the flat pack version?
With chinglish instructions for you to assemble with.
And allen keys that don't fit anything.
