attention SRT owners from Perth Western Australia

hi guys - dropped my SRT in for a 12K service today at Osborne Park JCD

had a long chat with their service Manager - Matt.

bottom line is that he's keen to sell and support modifications *some, not all* e.g. supercharging excluded but just about all else included

we spoke at length about the mods to my '14. he wants to take some of these mods to market as an aftermarket add-on supported by the dealer.

i obviously encouraged....

i also suggested that he get the ball rolling with a dealership supported race-day at Barbagallo. thought that was a reasonable idea.


so stay tuned but if you're going anywhere for service, give these guys a try. it would be great to get some dealership/factory support for us SRT owners

peace

Boz

Re: attention SRT owners from Perth Western Australia

They must have changed when I was looking at getting a SRT the sales attitude was slack and I couldn't do a test drive so I went elsewhere.

Re: attention SRT owners from Perth Western Australia

Hi guys,

Couple of things to ask.

Have got a price from Mandurah jeep. Will go to Melville jeep as well. What other Dealers are going to be interested in doing a deal on a SRT8..... Looking to go for White colour with Sunroof.

Spoke to Marks Workshop last week about the RIPP SC he installed on a SRT8 earlier this year and looked at the YouTube kit. Looks promising and something I would be interested in. Do we know if the SC jeep is a member on here. Some unbiased feedback of the RIPP system would be nice.

Where are we getting exhaust systems from. I have looked at all the videos and reports online and as per normal, not sure which way to turn for exhaust. Like the Borla Atak and the GTHaus has that Ballsy sound to it and like the idea of using the remote to switch on and off.

You guys must have had some good experiences with company's out of the States shipping gear. If it's anything like my dealings with aftermarket suppliers for my Harley's over the years, there normally are only a few good company's to deal with and the rest are crap. Do some of the company's look after you with invoices and Customs declarations

Having a hard time deciding on Rims. Any decent company's over here in Perth to help.

Fire away guys. New to the forum and not even ordered my ride yet, but sure plenty of opinions and help on here. Hope so anyway

>> i've got a white '14 SRT with HK stereo and moo roof. looks good as long as you get 20% tint (from Tint-a-Car)
>> I bought mine from Mandurah but i'm a fan of Osborne Park

>> http://www.summitracing.com is your best best for Borla or Corsa
>> i've got the Borla S on mine
>> IMHO the Atak and GTHaus are too aggressive for legal road use

>> try direct ship from SummitRacing per above otherwise (for wheels/tires) i've used Http://www.ustooz.com

>> ustooz do everything
>> another great vendor is blackopsautoworks.com

>> i'm getting the Concavo CW5 with VRED's. they're on the water at the moment. check out https://www.flickr.com/groups/stance...lightbox/?rb=1
>> i like them coz they're a clean, bold look and will be pi$$ easy to keep clean. also will show off my X-drilled rotors and brembo's really nicely!

Re: attention SRT owners from Perth Western Australia

Update on my buying exercise. Went out to 4 Dealers yesterday and in the evening. Maddington good experience, but couldn't supply car. John Hughes was John Hughes. Couldn't supply car. Ozzy Park was good experience and they have car on boat at present. Waiting for price tomorrow. Melville. Really good experience and car arriving tomorrow. BUT, sales manager was interesting character. Spent 20 minutes confirming car details and shipping and then wouldn't give me a price, because I wouldn't buy there and then. This was made very clear to the sales manager initially. I did tell all salesmen that I would make my decision by next Friday the 31st. Shook hands and walked out.

Been reading and researching my mods list and prices for last couple of nights. Plenty of good gear available. Pity it's all on the other side of the world and shipping and the declining aussie dollar don't help lol.

Re: attention SRT owners from Perth Western Australia

SRT has been ordered. My local dealer in Mandurah wanted my business the most as customer of there's from my diesel Grand Cherokee I have.

Didn't shop prices between dealers. Told mandurah what I wanted to pay and deal done. MY15 White with pano roof and hk upgrade and scored the black spider monkeys in deal. Lands in Perth early December.

Have ordered Supercharger from Marks Workshop in York. Will be here in time for car. Have ordered the Ingen CAI and the 87mm throttle body and the catch can to help with the SC.
Mufflex exhausts on order and hopefully shipped soon. Red 392 Hemi badges sorted as well.

Have spoken to Chad at Black Ops and ordered the thermostat, Mid Level springs, End Links, Rear adjustable control arms and Hawk brake pads all round as I'm not big on cleaning brake dust off rime, especially the black spider monkeys.

Hoping to have it all installed by Xmas just in time for the holiday season and get some shake down runs out in the country side
