"We will have a diesel demo here within about a week we think. It landed last week but we wont see it until all dealers get one"

They can't be that far away ????

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I am on a waiting list to drive one. (Melbourne)I was told by a dealer that there was 3 coming end of June early July and the were going to be put aside for media days but due to the demand they may be re deployed to fill customer orders. Depending what happens with them the dealer may get one of them for demos so I may get a drive.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I was told my dealer will have a CRD by this weekend that I can drive. Still no news on my order, but I might not return it on the test drive, just go straight to the RTA and transfer it to my name and drop a cheque on their desk

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Did anyone notice my post that has the CRD with the black wood interior ?
The V6/V8 still has the cherrywood, but it is black wood for the CRD apparently.

yeah, I saw that, so jealous in a way, but then again, I think the cherry wood has grown on me, kinda lightens up the black interior (sorta).

I am so jealous of you getting yours so soon.

I called my dealer a couple of days ago, apparently he said he'd touch base before the end of the week as he has good news for me. I can only hope it'll be on the same boat or something. Sydney ey, hopefully there is one for a Canberran :P

(EDIT: Saw your location)

The web still has the old brochure.
Does anyone have a link to the new one?

Looked at the revised jeep website pricing for the overland gone up $5k.
Glad I am locked in with a signed contract.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Well its been a week since i took delivery of my WK2 and ive already done 2000KMs and enjoyed every single one of them! I even went and did some driving through some tracks up Mount Tamborine on the weekend.

I have to say im actually really happy with the stereo, found it better than i had hoped. The best results are obviously playing music through the hard drive, ive been very impressed. The bluetooth streaming doesnt sound the best but i guess that is to be expected.

The whole voice recognition system works fantastic and as previously mentioned the auto wipers and high beam are flawless.

The heated seats which i though would be a waste of time in Qld have been sooo good! I love this feature and so have my passengers.

I came out of an FG XR6 turbo and was really worried about how i would go with the power in the 3.7, however i find it great.

Ill post a couple of pics of the last week driving around.
