Re: WK2 DownUnder

Yep. Mine has the same problem. Looks like the bumper was installed over the headlamp. Waiting for service to have it fixed

No LED's in the mirrors for indicators, instead we get a guard mounted light
Brown wood in the Overland even though the brochure shows it should be grey.
We get the 731 RHP audio system with Nav and uconnect
We only have the Hemi and CRD as motor choices in the Overland
Kumho tyres on the 20" wheels
Rear foglight
Different rear bar that does not have the tow hitch built in
No 110/240v power in the rear on DVD optioned cars
No saddle trim option (thanks but no thanks)

Thats about all I can think of, but add to the list if you find anything.
I have the saddle trim.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Yep, passenger side just under the headlamp where it meet the chrome grille.
Off subject, anybody ordered and fitted the stainless Mopar Ebrake/foot brake. Can see them in the US for around $18USD but haven't yet enquired about postage to Aus. The Mopar pedals look great especially under the aqua footlights, but thinking the E-brake pedal might finish off the job.

After seeing Scotts install instructions of the E-brake I thought about getting it but the site I found them at had postage at something like $80-$100.

So if you find them from somewhere with a reasonable postage I'd be interested in knowing.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi,
Anybody purchased a windscreen sun shade? If so, can you let me know the details. There's a custom fit one in the US (Pro trim) but mega bucks to ship Downunder. Cheers.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

....we're nearly half way through October, November's only 30 days long, December will fly by due to the festivities, January will be here before you know it,.....only 11 weekends, and my bet is you'll see it before January anyhow....mine was due 30th June and I picked it up late May (same VIN I was tracking etc...) No offence to the MG's out there but extremely happy with the Stone White....a great colour against other white's out there. Hold out Get on the tracking site and get some screen grabs of it passing though each of the ports and the Panama for the family album

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I think the Stone White is the best colour for the car by a long way. I am going to hold off for it.
