Re: WK2 DownUnder

Took mine out today did over 400km, its very smotth ride a gear changes.
5.7 Hemi averaged 12.9 im pleaed with that as the Hemi is stil tight.
Do any of you have sat/nav and if so doo's your TMC work, i rang the dealer and he was not too sure.
also i could not see the vehicle speed on the sat/nav screen any idea?

We are both very impressed with our new ride and what a great anniversery present

anyone sorced a manual for the nav system?

Cheers

Re: WK2 DownUnder

The TMC does not work in Australia.
I was told this when I bought mine and also when I picked it up.
I have not found the vehicle speed option, but I understood this was only on the 430n units.

Desert

Just got to say. Love the mineral grey.

It is a beautiful colour and it changes so much with the available light.

Good Choice and congratulations on an awesome vehicle.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Enforcer, ACC rocks. Used it all day, up early run up the freeway.
Done 230k today used the ACC all the time. How slow do you dare to take it? I chickened out about 25kmh.

Jaysonf, got the boot protector from the states, that long ago think it was $175.

Thanks for all the great comments. Love the colour now and the saddle.
Was concerned after last week. I built a closed in trailer and painted it with the same paint code, looks a lot darker on flat panels.

Going to Geraldton in the morning (never seen the Sydney memorial grampa's ship) for an overnight trip then back to Perth.
Should clock up just over 1000km.
Booked in for its first service Tuesday morning.

Alan done the tint this afternoon, watched him and his two guys do it in under an hour. Seen car tint done before, like watching artist at work very professional well done. Wife was having fits seeing the car door panels stripped.
Max legal on the front and UV and heat block all round.
Noticed a difference straight away, air-con was blowing fairly hard pulling into his drive. Was hardly on idle on the way home, set to full auto. Same outside temp there and back.

Nice looking ride, i too have Mineral Grey with Black interior it turns a few heads
Its is so quite you cannot hear any wind noise at all and the ACC works better than some other cars that i have driven

The only manual I got was the same as the one I sent to Milous, that can be downloaded fom his WK2JEEP site. I also got the service book, that was it.
As said, it is very easy to use the head unit and navigation. The Uconnect also has verbal instructions if you need them. I do recommend you do the 2 min training as it better understands your voice after it.

DT did you get the windscreen tinted with the heatshield tint ?
My mate is a tinter and I am going to get the screen done with a clear tint, as our car lives outside and I do not want any problems with the leather dash.
