I know, i know the CRD shipped, but I could not wait anylonger...
So, I pulled the trigger on a lease for a Limited 3.6 with LuxII and Frost/Black interior. Looks awesome in Granite Crystal. I'm happy with the purchase but will have it in the shop next week as the tailgate is close to grinding against the body lights. After have spent a few hours with it it....i love it. Small things that I noticed...yes, I like the details, one metal clip that holds the front window washer hose was bent off. not sure if it is a clip or if it is actually part of the hood. no biggie, does not seem to create any probs.
Oh, and one thing that I will do in short order is to switch out the taillight chrome for the SRT black version. according to the parts guy at the dealership its about $350 to get it done. I'm not a chrome guy. Had an 11 before, so I also noticed that the VVT emblem on the engine cover is gone, i know, minor detail. I guess its still VVT though. All in all, super happy to have left my 1 year old X5 Diesel and back in the JGC.
