Re: WK2 DownUnder

Noticed this Limited diesel with ORA, trail rated badge and all in the dealer at Narellan. Still has all its protective covers so must have just arrived. It must literally be the last MY15 ever built. If you are in the market....

It's not that hot in New South just dry, windy and high fuel loads. Last week we spent two miserable nights camping with frosts on Barrington Tops at about 1,500m. Icy southerly winds were blowing all the way from... Victoria

Re: WK2 DownUnder

My insurance covers the screen. I still think it should be a warranty issue, but it's easier via my insurance. Arranged over the phone on the run back to Sydney today and they will fix it at my home tomorrow.

This has actually been the least of dramas over the last few days. Buy me a beer sometime and I'll tell you about the trip we have just had......

Re: WK2 DownUnder

The guy is here fixing the windscreen - he has scratched the paint on the front guard but will arrange for it to be repaired - seems like a nice guy and pointed it out to me without drama. Needed to slightly wedge the guard up to slide the screen in, forgot to remove the wedge, opened the bonnet and just caught the edge of the guard and scratched it. Bugger.

Interesting that when he took the old screen out there was gaps in the silicon from the factory - said he wouldn't be surprised if there was wind noise caused by the gaps. Jeep quality!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

By the way - it's an aftermarket screen. Interesting the NRMA (my insurer) crap on about using genuine parts in repairs. I don't really care, I suspect they all come out of the same factory in China anyway - just interesting.
