Re: WK2 DownUnder

We don't get the same options as the US.
Not possible to spec leather in a Laredo

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I just got a quote for a "stone white" Laredo CRD; the quote included additional $450 cost for paint. I would have thought white wasn't a premium colour.

Any ideas.

Hi, yes you can certainly order quadralift in Laredo.
I think it's a $3500 option in all grand models apart the overland which ql comes standard. Cheers

Any Jeep ordered to spec will not be seen here until Feb/March next year. You will need to find a dealer with stock to get it anytime soon.
Hey good news Enforcer, 3 sleeps to go eh!

Mine will be ready in Sydney tomorrow and hopefully car carrier to Brisbane tomorrow afternoon with ETA Friday or Monday.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I posted a new thread in the WK2 general forum re Overland trim not being as per brochure / website and there have been many disappointed owners. In hindsight I should have posted it here.

Suggest Overland buyers take a quick look.

Milous, I've just reacquainted myself with my contract as my finance is going through today. I noticed I've been hit with A$495 for "Premium Paint". Mine is an Inferno Overland CRD which was a June / July build.

How long ago did Jeep do away with upcharging for Blackberry & Inferno. If it was pre June / July this year I'll have a reason to demand a contract amendment.
Thanks

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I have the saddle/black in mine, but was told it would most likely have the cherry wood As advised by the state rep. But looking at the new Brochure I would think it is the medium burl wood
