Re: Sydney DCR Sandwich!

I know there is a thread somewhere, but I think the US95 is about the same as our 98?

I've only tried LC once and got wheel spin on loose ground so backed off. Way too hot ATM to try again though.

Re: Sydney DCR Sandwich!

I got a 5.3 sec on my first go not even taking it serious. My second run I got 5.7 but the best I got was 4.8 sec. I was estatic. Then when I updated my UConnect it wiped all records. Guess I gotta try again.

Also, I got my front side windows tinted at 20% by Tint Me Up in Campbelltown. Took them 20 mins and only cost me $100 with a lifetime guarantee. No waiting for bubbles to evaporate or anything. I'll check the cut lines in a couple of days but so far a very tight job. I'm impressed.

What was funny though is I told one of the guys how much kW the SRT has, he responds "that's only about 500HP" I looked at him amazed and said "only!?"

Re: Sydney DCR Sandwich!

I got my front windows tinted today to "match" the privacy glass (may not be strictly legal ) also $100 from Forest Tinting at Brookvale.

Edit - we did discuss tinting the Pano but decided against it as while he does several every month he did get a "memo" from one MFR saying not to do it. He has only heard of one sun roof that was broken by the tint however. One too many for my liking!

Re: Sydney DCR Sandwich!

Does it match well with the rest of the tinting? That's what I was worried about. I actually was going to go 30% but decided real 20% would do the job and allow me to see things in the dark. I don't know what my last car was but I reckon they were about 15% or less. I could barely see though it at night and because my seat were white leather they reflected really bad.

The only thing I hate about the new tinting: increased reflection of the silver A/C vent when you're looking at the Driver's side mirror. I might have to put some type of dark vinyl around it. Brushed titanium maybe?

Yup (to my eyes). The guy said it will never be 100% due to the backs being grey glass and the fronts clear but it looks the same to me.

Re: Sydney DCR Sandwich!

Hi guys. What version connect software did you guys get your car with. I got mine a few days ago with 7 oct. Build. Version was 13.36.2

No issues with it at the mo except for the srt page coming and going at will.

Anyone updated to the newest and any diff? Or new issues?

You are two behind, current is 13.43.7.
You can download it here : http://www.jeepgarage.org/f219/uconn...vip-69087.html

This and the one in between fix several things and speed it all up.

Re: Sydney DCR Sandwich!

Hmmm. I did tell them to ensure all upgrades were done before delivery. Lol. So much for that.

The new black beast is awesome though!!!!!!

Re: Sydney DCR Sandwich!

But they sure as hell should have had 13.39.51 installed instead.

Re: Sydney DCR Sandwich!

Hi. You guys with aust delivered srt .... Have you noticed a mild drone or muffled exhaust sound or resonance at idle? It almost sounds like the exhaust is blocked. Blip throttle it goes away. I did start a thread but not many replies in the negative or affirmative. Just checking with the Aussies.

Will go in at the 1000k service to get them to have a look. Only done 100ks.
