Hey guys, I just traded my first car, a 2006 330i towards my first Jeep, a 2014 Laredo E that I picked up on Thursday. As badly as I wanted the limited, I'm graduating college and getting married soon so it just couldn't be done. I do have the security and convenience group with a sunroof, ORA I, and trailer tow packages so it has some goodies. I'm liking the GC quite a bit, the Uconnect system is very intuitive and awesome so far. I had one issue where my seat and steering wheel heaters were greyed out for about an hour or two and once where the music from my Iphone (plugged in through the USB) had that glitch where it sounds like its rewinding or something. It was definitely a bummer but so far they've each only happened once and I knew there'd be some bugs still. It was built in June, I just passed 100 miles on it today, and according to the Uconnect site my software is up to date. As far as mods go, my biggest complaint would be the headlights. I miss the adaptive xenons in the bimmer quite a bit but from what I understand from reading on here, only some wiring retrofit stuff (and a significant amount of money) would put some in my Jeep. After a few unfortunate instances with trying some relatively minor mods in the BMW, I don't know how much I'll be looking to do to this one. I do really want to upgrade the audio at some point though. The stock 6 speaker system is way better than I expected, but I want to improve the quality. I'm looking around to see if there's anyway I can replace just the speakers, maybe the amp, but keep the headunit. If there are any options for that, I'd appreciate a point in the right direction, in the meantime I'll keep searching. Main use for this is DD, but I really wanted the versatility of a 4x4 SUV. My main hobby is shooting (I'm pretty active on m4carbine.net if anyone else here is) and that's taken me onto dirt or gravel roads several times. While a Jeep obviously isn't necessary for that, I still felt like I was torturing my car by doing it. In the spring, I'll be moving to Hawaii (Army) and hoping to do alot more outdoor stuff there.
