Hmm, aehhh, yes... turned it into a little "how much does the sales manager know" game without him noticing anything (he did try to be very nice after all) and he did ok except for the more tricky questions

The car is very nice and lives up to my expectations. Already did 250km and did not notice anything unusual, no rattling and even the satnav behaves and I have not found any mapping issues yet.

Asked about recovery hooks and sales manager did not know anything at all. Promised to check with Jeep and assist. I will pursue this further.

Currently it's just a standard GC so pictures are not very fancy.
Only addition so far is my WeatherTech cargo liner which fits perfectly and has a nice lip all around to contain any dirt or fluids.

Looks very nice. Congrats after such a looooong dramatic wait.
I like that boot liner too.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Guys, is it worth the hassle of tracking your order etc, given that I will have no influence on poor processes at jeep Australia + dealer.

I began tracking it too late and yet I still found it worth it. The build sheet you get also allowed me to confirm what I ordered was what I was getting ...excluding that is the front recovery hooks.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi there
Just a short note the NAV-TV lock pick works on the RB2. Good quality vision on the screen. I have factory rear camera and a front camera plus two on the rear of my van, one for reversing and one for vision whilst traveling. I will add futher info on the forum tomorrow plus on the other ones as well. Took a while put I finally bet the can bus system.
David Scott.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I read that 8 speed for CRD going to be out next year and the orders for 2013 models open 6 June 2012. Can anyone confirm if its possible to order the 2013 8 speed in june 2012?

(Disc: I have already ordered )

Re: WK2 DownUnder

If you order a CRD in June, you will get a 5 speed. However, if you wait possible till June 2013, there is a good chance you will get an 8 speed.
If you look at what is planned, you will see that the 8 speed is scheduled for Spring 2013. i.e. Apr/May

I read milous' post on my13 changes differently (albeit optimistically). It reads to me the CRD will get the 8 speed from start of production whilst the pentastar will be late availability.
