I'm guessing your looking at the 5.7L based on the fact your coming from a 335i?
Yeah I'm definitely going with the HEMI, without a doubt.

I suppose I will just have to go drive one and see for myself. Thanks for the response.

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

Traded in my 2005 Chrysler 300C. Loved the car in the if the road was dry but if it was raining or snowing it had no traction. I love the Jeep and would not trade it for anything. The ride is awesome and I it has all the features you could ever want.

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

I was driving a 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo until an 87 year old man t-boned me in an intersection just over a year ago. I really loved that Jeep! It had about 250,000 kms on it but was still going strong; Id still probably be driving it if that incident never happened. I attached a picture of my Jeep and his car. Both our vehicles were totalled even though there looks like minimal damage to my Jeep; the support pillar was bent.

At that time, I was doing a chemical engineering practicum about 90 minutes outside the city, so I needed a vehicle bad. I basically had a weekend to pick out a new vehicle and there were no decent used Grand Cherokees in Edmonton. So I saw this 08 Liberty with very low mileage and bought that. I used it for a year until I graduated from college and actually quite enjoyed it. The Liberty just hit 40,000 kms and was 4 years old, so since it was in a good spot yet, I traded that in for my 5.7L Overland.

Though I miss my original Jeep, the Overland numbs the pain quite a bit

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

New here, and my first Jeep. We traded our 2004 Acura MDX for the slightly used 2011 Laredo X. Bright Silver Metallic ext. / Dark Greystone, Medium Greystone int. Not our first color choice, but it only had 7500 miles on it at a good discount over new so Silver it was!

Traded my '07 Acura MDX in on my '11 GC Limited. No regrets (at the same time, no complaints on the MDX, loved that thing).

Traded in my 2000 WJ 4.0L with 170,000 miles and a broken driver's seat bracket. Transmission needed to be rebuilt, so it was time to recover whatever I could!
