Speaking of what a joke the al manara centre is - when asking for him to try and find the parts for the black front grill rings and break vent bezels, they tried to convince me that the factory only makes chrome ones and for all black ones in the showrooms, those are custom painted after the car arrives...

I went back in two days ago once I found the actual part numbers and showed him on my iPad that he was full of it. Willie heard me, but Willie didn't care.

I wonder when they recruit people, is their primary criteria a sincere lack of knowledge and or interest in anything even remotely related to cars, their job, customer service, or proper human decency? If the answer is yes - then they are doing a fantastic job!

Gotta love institutionalized monopolies!

Regarding remote start vs. boot - I will use remote start every day during the summer so it seems like a no brainer to sacrifice it IMO. I'll be getting this done (hopefully) on my next service.

It's a pain really, I never spoke to any service advisor that has profound knowledge of my car. And yeah I guess I will be losing my power boot function for remote start. It's disappointing that the car should have both function just like the US version, but we don't get it here.

Re: Adding Remote start but sacrificing the trunk button ?

Are you getting all your money back or are they charging you a restocking fee?

They haven't mentioned (parcel is still on the way to their office). What fee are you referring to ?

On my invoice it says if I send it back (which the dealer STILL hasn't got back to me about), there is a 20% restocking fee.!

The remote start kit I installed from the dealer is the same one I ordered and refunded, not sure why MOPAR representative told me that it won't work no matter what I try. Anyway I got it from the dealer so that if anything failed, they won't put the blame on my parts.

No problem. Im happy you finally got it done.

So you had it installed over there and did they flashed the new key also or you did it somewhere else?

I purchased the same part number for MOPAR USA but a representative from there told me that it wont work here, so I didn't want to take any chances and sent it back. I went to the service center and they had the same part number (oh well) and got it installed. Then I purchased a separate fob with all buttons from justforjeeps and had it programmed by the service center for my car.
