That's my point. There probably are some upper eschelon people like you who will be brought into the fold. However, the SRT brand is only around in 2011 because of JEEP/SRT enthusiasts. Not people like you. And they crapped on them with this unexpected price hike.

So are you getting one?

BTW, I am getting mine at 1.8% below invoice, to me that is a good value.....

whining about it is not going to change the situation.....

very simple, if it is worthed to you buy it, if it is not then there is need to preach here about how much of a rip off it is.......

Good day.....
LOL. But, the WK1 is way nicer looking than the 2006-2010 Cayenne, on the exterior which is most important, to me. Especially when the WK Grand Cherokee Limited first came out in fall of 2004 - it was the nicest looking SUV available.

Right now, I am up in the air. I haven't canceled yet, but am actively looking at some other options. It's possible I will keep it and suck it up and stop whining.

1.8 below invoice? How did you work that?
