I didn't to be honest. I can't see anyone not liking this exhaust better than the stock one. It is not that loud just a beautiful tone.

I even reached out to senior management at FCA. They said they would get back to me which gave hope, but after a couple of follow ups that has also gone quiet.

Such a good product, great ads...poor info sharing globally and the website is showing old vehicles. They have a way to go.

Thanks.
Hi all,

Just a quick update...I did receive a reply from senior management of FCA. Credit where credit is due and respect for taking his time out to reply.

I had my hopes up just seeing a reply, but the bottom line is that the Red Vapor is not a viable product for them to bring out to Oz. Oh well at least I got a response in the end. The standard package will do just fine and I won't suffer wondering if and when the RV might or might not come out.

I did however suggest that they survey existing SRT customers to gauge levels of potential interest. Could be useful for their future decisions.

Cheers

Re: Sydney SRT Club

So finally after more than a year of following the 2014 SRT and dreaming about it from a distance...reading countless reviews and watching heaps of YouTube clips. To then getting excited about the 2015 Red Vapor SRT and then deflated with it not being available in Australia...and then getting newly excited at the stock (nothing standard about it, mind you!) 2015 SRT, I have finally put a holding deposit for a White SRT sitting on a boat on its way to Port Kembla. To say I'm excited would be an understatement.

I'll be kinda sad leaving Subaru after back to back turbos in a Liberty GT spec.B and more recently my Forester S-Edition, but the current models simply don't do anything for me. The Subaru seesaw of sweet looking cars to weird looking ones continues in my view. The Liberty and Forester looks weird for now - sorry Subaru.

...but by all my research here, something tells me I'll soon forget the word Subaru the very moment I press the 'start' button on my SRT.

I'm not telling many people I know about the car until I have it, so I thought this would be a good place to share my thoughts...busting holding onto the news

Now the waiting game

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Yeah. I'm a PITA it's a February built vehicle. I'm sure the late '14 ones are fine but i'm picky.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Just wondering if anyone knows what the story is with the differences in listed power output.
Jeep Aus lists power as 344kw but that equates to 460hp . US lists HP as 475 but that's around 350kw a 15hp difference ?
