Re: WK2 DownUnder

I didn't think Stone White was available any longer (for MY13 onwards) unless you are waiting until January for a MY12?
Should have our Mineral Grey unit in a week or so....

Re: WK2 DownUnder

The MY 2013 colour is called Bright White but I don't know what difference there is to Stone White. My 2012 Stone White order rolled over to a MY13 Bright White (New Saddle with skid plates and 18" wheels) and arrived early September but I knocked it back to wait for the MY2014 (want the 8 speed). I think it might be running around somewhere near Dubbo now.

I think you'll find Bright White is exactly that, just a bit brighter than the Stone White.

I tried to talk Mrs into waiting for MY2014 but seeing as she has wanted a new car since the WK2 was released and wants it for the christmas road trip she won't wait a day longer... hmmm.

hope it is stone white. Saw the difference on a 300C. Very stark and with a blue ting. Stone white has an ivory tone and is a nocer look IMHO

You might want to check that. The first shipment of MY13's have arrived (as has my Mineral Grey MY13) so pretty sure no more Stone Whites are coming. See MY13 threads for colour range.
You might be able to find a suitable existing new MY12 if you really want Stone White. I note there are several MY12 Stone White Overland CRD's showing on Carsales, surely some have to be in stock.

Where is the bloody engine number? I know what it is but the scalies and I couldn't find it stamped anywhere. They did the compliance anyway, but it'd be nice to know where it is.

I remembered this question from a while back and did a search....check out the last post.
CRD Engine Number Location....Anyone?

Yep, slid under mine.....drivers side, from underneath, and can be seen where the engine meets the bell housing - tight fit to get under though as I didn't jack up the QL.
If you are above average round the middle you might not get in there.......

I assume its the same on the pentastar. Thought that might be the case but both of us were hanging for a beer so we didn't want to go crawling around on the ground to find it.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Is there any word on when the 8 speed ZF gear boxes will make it to Australia for the CRD Laredo? I'm trying to hold out on purchasing but I can't seem to find an indicative timeframe as to when it will make it here...

Any solid info would be appreciated!
