Re: WK2 DownUnder

Carmen is docked. Torino is anchored.
Two ships at once.
Carmen was supposed to dock in Brisbane but must have been diverted, Port Kembla then Melbourne.

Well I am now told, almost 3 months after ordering, that my Overland is scheduled for build 31 August and delivery 15 November. I wonder if it will be a 2012 model? Can't decide wether to crash the contract or fly from Darwin to Sydney to take delivery when/if it arrives????!!!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Looks great, not the real painful wait happens to actually drive the beast.
It will be one rare car in NZ, well done.

I was given the exact same dates and asked them to make sure it was a MY2012. The dealer confirmed it will be and will have the new 6 speed gearbox and any other changes they make for the 2012 model.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I am confused by the talk of a six speed gearbox as I have been told that there will be a new eight speed by ZF introduced late next year. This box will be standard across the newly updated 300c range being released later this year.

Cheers Chris
