Re: WK2 - remote start down under.

It was only a JC, can't remember the model, smaller centre screen, no navigation, cameras etc.

Re: WK2 - remote start down under.

Yes I agree, I tried but it didn't work. They loved the exhaust and the sound. They reckon they haven't seen one.

2785kms, heading to Sydney in about half hour, looking forward to a decent run in her.

Re: WK2 - remote start down under.

Nice do you have to bring it in after the break in period or did you just have some stuff wrong with it?

Sydney would be a good drive going up on the 20sept so lolling forward to that. You can try out the adaptive cruise aswell.

Re: WK2 - remote start down under.

No was recalled for boots on half shafts, was waiting on stock to be available and the software update for the body module which was released the other day.

No break in period 1st service. 10k or 12 months is the first service. Have been using ACC town and love it.

Re: WK2 - remote start down under.

Is this recall thru a letter or something. Is for 2014 models. Sounds serious.

Re: WK2 - remote start down under.

I got an email from the dealer last week about the half shafts, when I dropped her off yesterday he said they would need her longer as they would update the software. Give your dealer a call they will soon tell you if your half shafts need doing etc. Mine is a 06/14 build.

Re: WK2 - remote start down under.

when you guys say it wont work with 2014, are you refering to my14 or cars produced in 2014.

I have a Jul 2013 build which is a MY14 and I am guessing this means no remote start for me?

Re: WK2 - remote start down under.

I think it will work for you. 2014 builds are from June onwards I believe that don't work with the aftermarket remote start. I will have a 2013 remote start for sale for a srt, just waiting for refund from audio shop.
