One of the biggest things I miss about living in Melbourne, especially my time in St Kilda is going to the Astor Theatre.
If you have a night free or a just into some great movies check it out. The Astor Theatre

If you have ever considered seeing the 4hr version of Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet, it is on this Sunday at 1. Well worth it.
Damn, I would love to go there on the 15th.

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

Hello all. I live in Melbourne CBD and this is definitely a good idea to get together.
When is our first meet?

I want to do mods but I want to see some in the flesh and also ask some tips and pricing etc

Welcome dpaps,
I live and work in the CBD as well. I am still waiting on delivery of my srt but it is meant to be arriving next weekend (fingers crossed). So far we haven't made any plans for a meet but I would be keen to arrange a meet with yourself and few of the other guys in the near future. My initial idea for this thread was to start collecting a bit of local knowledge for modding our rigs as there seemed to be lack of modding support in Victoria for our particular rides and to be honest I wasn't really expecting any responses from anyone to this thread so thanks to everyone who has shown some interest. Hopefully we will all soon be able to start contributing some knowledge and organise a meet in the very near future. Ive started to notice a couple of Melbourne based shops starting to take stock of a few exhaust systems and other items in the last couple of weeks which is promising. I have also ordered an Injen short ram intake and some other visual mod stuff off eBay so hopefully I can post some picks and give thoughts on them.

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

Hi there fellow Jeep SRT8 owners, just ordered mine last week. Its Granite Crystal with spider monkeys and optioned with pano roof, HK sound & rear entertainment. Currently on a vessel and have been told that will be arriving in about 4-5 weeks. Cant wait! Have been a jeep enthusiast for past 15 years. My first was a TJ Wrangler which I had modified for off roading, then I got married, wife complained about getting in & out (too high), so I went for a little luxury and bought a GC WJ Ltd 4.7. That was unfortunately written off in Melbournes 2010 Hailstorm and was paid out by insurance. My next jeep was a GC WH ltd 5.7 Hemi and recently sold it to update to my new wheels. Always wanted the WK SRT8, have been waiting for the 8 speed for sometime now.

Anyway, bit about myself, would be very interested to keep in touch with you guys to discuss mods and what type of experiences we may all have in getting parts and finding performance shops etc.

Bye for now and hope this newly formed club grows!

Cheers, Batzi.

Welcome to the club bro. I remember that hail storm. Luckily I was between cars at the time. It has caused me a little paranoia every time I'm driving and see some storm clouds coming.lol

A few things.
1. Seemed to have good reviews on this forum
2. The price and performance seemed good and I may want to go with volant or another brand once they are available, so I didn't want to waste to much cash if this is the case.
3. I wanted the Bwoody but I don't want to the hole washer bottle thing and it seemed rather expensive and had so many extra parts to order along with it so this seemed the next best choice.

Thanks HammerTime. Have a question, I am wanting to do some mods in the near future. Some would be lowered springs and exhaust (cat back). Do you know if either of these mods void the jeep warranty?

Rear entertainment wasn't an option when I got mine. What do you get? What was the $$ on top for that option?

Cat back shouldn't be a problem, my dealer even gave me the name of someone who I could call in regards to getting my exhaust done and said it won't mess with the warranty. I'm not 100% sure about lowering springs but I'm sure that they are fine judging by what others have said on this forum. Best thing to do is talk to you dealer that performs your servicing and get their word for sure because jeep can be a bit difficult with resolving issues in regards to warranties. Let's just say that you have an issue in your suspension area, your dealership may use your lowered spring as an excuse for any issues and not resolve the problem even if your issue had nothing to do with your springs. It won't void your warranty but it could give them an easy excuse to make you go away. I'm not bagging on jeep but their dealerships are know for being a bit clueless at times.

Hi dpaps, they have only just started being built with the rear entertainment system. Another thing I was waiting for before I bought one.

Had an aftermarket Alpine system in the rear headrests in both my previous GCs. Never got used in my WJ (bought it with it installed) Now have kids and they really enjoyed it in the WH, so had to have it again. Cos the WK has active headrests, hard to find aftermarket screens and I much preferred it to all be factory. I was really lucky when I ordered, cos the colour I wanted with the exact options, happened to be on a ship. All dealers I went to said they haven't seen this option in Australia yet, so I guess I'll be one of the first. In fact all dealers said wasn't available yet and weren't sure when it will be. By chance, the dealership I bought from happened to ring, in front of me, to see what stock was being built and coming to Aus and was luck enough to land this one. Exactly what I wanted. I guess it was meant to be.

Regarding cost, off memory, it was a 2.5k option (pretty good, considering would cost around the same for after market, which wouldn't be as good).

Another option I was considering was the Sepia interior, not a lot of them around with this, got to eventually see one, IMO looked awesome, but is a 2k option and I would have had to wait 4-5 months to get delivered. The one I'm getting is only a 1 month wait.
