Thanks, I did a local search and not much around I want even for this highly populated area. If I were to get something new I am contemplating no sunroof as I never use it so I'd probably be ordering.

I have asked my wife a couple of times if she wants mine and I'd sell hers and get something, but she really likes her 2010. She loves flat red and said a redline 2014 is only thing she would want. Still though, she thinks the wk2 feels bulky and big compared to her WK.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I am now seriously looking at upgrading to a '14 SRT.
Just to clarify the AU models and the recent changes.

From what I have read ALL Aug 2013 builds now have ACC with Stop?

Torque Black Laguna Leather Seats is standard or optional?

Can someone link me to what the Torque Black Laguna Leather Seats looks like ?

Any idea when we can order the black spider monkey wheels, as there is no option for this in AU (I am happy to sling a few cases of beer to out JNAP workers if they can put these wheels on for me )

Took one for a test drive on the weekend and I am still smiling, I need some HEMI POWER

No acc stop and go now...or in 15 for the Srt.

No black laguna now or in 15. Not in plans from what im told.


Black chrome spyder monkeys is an option im pretty sure.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

My first post (apologies if it is the wrong thread!). I've just bought a Jeep 6.4 SRT in Graphite Grey with the Pano Roof and Audio upgrade....but I don't get it till mid Dec (on a ship). I'll be using the tracking option to see where it is at. I'm pretty excited to have my first "Yank Tank" after 10 years of 3 x Toyota Klugers! I'm based in Sydney Australia and will have a bunch of Newbie Q's so please bear with me while I wait for my delivery. I've not been so excited about a new car for 20 years and can not wait to get my hands on it! My first dumb Q's
- is there any obvious beginner mods I should look at (the dealer suggested swapping the air box) that will not void warranty?
- the std model comes with Pirelli P0 Run Flats that cost a small fortune out here, and the dealer says I'll burn them out in 20K. What do you guys run?
- does this beast really run on E10? The site says it is compatible but any advice on what fuel to push through it?
- any other must have accessories?
- any Sydney based Drive Course for Jeep SRTs?
- other suggestions to kill the time till I get my hands on this beast?

If I'm no the wrong thread for a Newbie please let me know
Thanks
Nathan

Edit - I was looking for a "Hot" SUV and I can not believe how good value for money the SRT is compared to the Euros here in Oz. My other option was an Audio SQ5 and it was another 20K

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Where in Sydney are you and what dealer did you use?

The only place that "apparently" will do some sort of drive day is Suttons at Waitara, but good luck getting your car from them first!

Congrats!

I have heard the same on the Pirellis - I will be replacing mine with the BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2 when the time comes. They are half the price and I've had good success with those on other vehicles. They aren't run flats, but I really don't care.

I would look into getting a catch-can as a must have accessory. Billet Tech is a sponsor here and has a great product.

How to kill time? Good luck with that! It's like waiting for Christmas when you were a kid!

I'm near Roseville SVM who I ordered the car from. I'll check to see if they organise any drive days.

I hope this issue hasn't been beat to death, but do we have any word on when the rear seat entertainment system with the two rear screens, and bluray player will be available?

That is still the only thing holding me back from pulling the trigger on a 14 SRT.

Thanks in advance for the input.

My two cents worth would be to buy a couple of iPads for the rear seat passengers. Cheaper than an in-built system and more more flexible too. You could even use it for a front seat passenger if they were feeling antisocial...
