Re: WK2 DownUnder

I have my Jeep - 3000Ks so far.

What a car!, unbelievable price for the car. I got out of a Mercedes E350 and I am not missing any comfort or luxury. Its quiet as a mouse, QL suspension is awesome, and the uconnect is the best phone syste I have ever used - it smokes the COMAND merc system. Rear seats are great, tons of room when they are down, love the keyless entry and start and just cant belive it cost so little. The guys at my office all drive Toyo Playdos's and call it my H(j)eep but i can tell they are shocked at paying double the price for their rides... :P

Things I want but cant find - AEV wheels and the right size offroad tyres (MTZ/ATZ or SCII maybe), Mopar Rock Rails in AUstralia, a Trail rated badge not available form my dealer and neoprene or canvas seat covers. Also dead keen on front bar with winch.

Cheers
Oh and I am geeting 10.6L/100K and I commute every day 60Ks each way highway+city. Wow!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

My Dealer called me today, was very excited to tell me that my car will definitely be here early November.

It is still in PR on Milous's tracking page, so I am skeptical hippo, but whatever. Just want my car now! :'(

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Spentan I assume that was Rolfe motors? When did you order yours? My tracking states 7/11/2011 although it only shows order yesterday.

Yer Rolfe motors in phillip. I ordered back in mid-may. I was first promised end of august, but then was told I missed out on the allocation and it would be November.

I have ordered the white gold with the new saddle interior, which has been confirmed several times. The dealers also confirmed that it will be an MY2012 v8 with the 6spd auto

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Look's like there is 95 other GC's on the same boat as mine on they're way over to us. Assuming similar VIN's means similar vehicles??

It stops in Auckland first then Brisbane, Port Kembla then down to Melbourne.

If the first part of the vin is the same then they are jeeps.
2011 position 5 is 2=GC RHD
2012 position 5 is J=jeep

Don't know why they changed.
but could also be wranglers, Cherokee's. not sure where they are built.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Noticed some thing today.
The power steering pump brand "Toyoda".
What I can find is Toyoda was the family name of the founder of Toyota.
Toyoda is a subsidiary of Toyota.

So our HEMI jeeps have Toyota components? LOL

Don't know about the electric steering on the V6.

By the way, I think by today more than 50% of the car parts come from "all over world" market.
