How can one follow on from that...

Anyway, finally got the car on Monday - Maximum Steel Overland CRD. Will post pics soon - having too much fun driving it. Friday's the time for the install of the recovery hook and skid plates (that I've had for months) then on to the rock rails...

Re: WK2 DownUnder

hey all,

have been doing some research and some driving,

drove a 300 v6 yesterday, and can't get over the awesomeness of the 8spd transmission.

I was actually thinking about trading in my Overland for a 300C Luxury.

I'm hoping to walk away with the new car and not spending any cash, but we'll just have to see how we go.

in other news, my overland tow hooks should be here in the next 2 weeks, and my overland satnav antenna is here for warranty fitment.

I'm really keen on the 300 mainly for the 8.4" touchscreen and garmin nav, my uconnect nav is really really getting on my nerves, as well as the fact that the 300C Lux is faster, smoother and uses less fuel than my v8.

I was actually considering leasing an SRT8 (300) cos I can, its just not worth the 6month waiting period, and I find the 300SRT8 a bit tight to squeeze into. Not to mention, its so fast that it'd be boring to drive legally.

thoughts/comments?

All good things come to those who wait:-) it'll be longer than 12 weeks, but will still be worth it.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

wise move to wait. The 8sp is going to devalue all of our 5sp cars very quickly, unless it is a bad gearbox. This is unlikely as ZF usually make the best stuff.
