Hey Milous, any word yet on if they will export them for AUS market? FCA here says they want them but no one can confirm they will come yet.

About time. This is the longest time I have ever kept a vehicle. Looking forward to a change.

If I had to guess, I would say that the only person who could confirm this would be Milous, and I know for a fact that he has the answer...

lol answering in the third person? I knew is was a long shot. If you can't say yes or no directly, can you at least say when we Aussies will find out either way? Either from you or from FCA Aus?

And, if i may be so bold, do you know when the 2017 SRT's will start shipping to Aus? I was told Dec/Jan for orders (feb deliveries), but now i'm told there may be a delay? I was thinking of getting a 17 SRT until the HC comes (maybe in 19) ?
