Re: WK2 DownUnder

The dealer is guaranteeing the car to be ready for pickup tomorrow.
Flights are booked and paid for.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Dealer rang me today with good news, my overland is in the yard and should be ready for Monday,
I slipped into the dealership tonight on the way home and was shown my Overland MG it look bloody awesome, with 16km on the clock.
trying to convince the salesman to have it ready firday as we had planned on going away and it would have been nice to have the new vehicle. (can only try)

Re: WK2 DownUnder

My lovely Red Inferno piece of machine was delivered to me by car carrier today.

Let me say, it's just gob-smacking beautiful!

I know I did not drool over my 120 series Prado Grande like this. The Grande is top of the Prado range and even the current model has nothing on this. Hopefully Jeep won't catch on and raise prices.

I'll post pics etc oo the new ride thread but first, I need to know where the engine number is located on the CRD. Does anyone know?

One minor pitfall of buying from an interstate dealer is the rego process (not complaining, I only had approx 45 day wait so I'm still very thankful). The moron at Queensland Transport said she had to sight the number before she could process the registration, I checked everywhere, even removed the top plastic shroud and could not see any part of the block.

I tell you, this country is over regulated with little bureaucrats, it's clear its a new car with a new engine and had if I had someone else looking at it they would have just ticked the box. Too many "consultants" have infiltrated govt and big business and have over regulated life, at some point we have to take a stand and fight for common sense to to reign supreme. Though I'll bang that drum another time.

Would be grateful if someone can point to where the engine number is located. Cheers

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hope it is not like the merc 2.7. Number is above the starter, under the fire wall, behind the intake manifold, under a wiring harness.
I tried for hours with telescopic mirrors and torch, only could get the first couple of numbers.
In WA I would go to a regional examination station.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I would call up Jeep 1800 102 277, I just tried to find it in the manual and it is not listed, only the VIN location. I would look towards the firewall around the bellhousing. For some reason car makers put them in the worst spots.
Glad we are all getting our cars. I feel sorry for you OzTJ, as you have waited the longest and still do not have it
