Agreed! I ask, is there a more imortant button in the whole car? Everything else is lit up, cup holders, pedals and even the bum warmer which I'm not ever likely to use.

Hey guys, you could just stick some hair around it, then see if you still have trouble finding it in the dark

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Order a Black Overland CRD on 24/3 and was told mid may only to receive a phone call to say end of August. Car Dealer speak for end of the year if Laredos are being give a late november delivery date. Went to the dealer and seen they had 1/12 build true blue CRD on the floor so took that one instead. Love the color in the end just not the bullshit on delivery times.

I think you got had, they just had that one on the floor for sale and when yours comes in they do the same to the next guy. I have a mate that ordered a silver crd overland early may and was told August delivery. Dealer rang last week saying they had his car and was avail for delivery late next week. There seems to be a few around. True blue is a great colour though.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Is anyone aware of any issues in buying MOPAR oil filters and Mopar air filter on Ebay from US dealers for self install in Oz?

Parts would have to be the same, what are your thoughts?
