Re: WK2 DownUnder

I'm fine with you liking it, I'd still suggest a trip to the dealer to see if they have one (or a Voyager) painted that colour.

It really is gold, not sure why they use the word white at all. lol

And there you go, I've seen a Dark Charcoal/black leather at the dealer, and it was very much to my taste, much nicer if it was available with the "correct" colour wood trim that the Overland's are/were supposed to have!

Although, having said that, I think I'd go white or silver again, it tends to hide little marks well, and nearly always looks clean (silver esp).

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Anyone with a dealer fitted tow bar?
Any photos?

The one shown in the accessories catalog is of a different model, not the same bumper.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi All,

First time post here so be gentle lol

I ordered my Overland 5.7 with our local dealer on the 7th May ansd was told that delivery would be about 12 weeks.
Today i dropped into the dealer and asked if they have any news on expected build dates, i was advised that it could be August with expected delivery in October.
I guess that my main question is if the car is to be built in August/September will it have the 2012 spec (6 speed gearbox)?

Most likely not, as Milous has said all 2011 orders will be built as 2011 until all orders are done.
