Yea, I just need to hear one in person. I actually really enjoy the 'timid' sound of the Jeep for my daily commute - it allows the stereo to shine. My Camaro is absolutely ridiculous with sound, and as much as I enjoy driving it, it gets old. I must be getting old

What did I do to my WK2 SRT today...?

Well, first things first, I took delivery of my new truck!!! Which was something I was looking forward to since ordering back in... March!

Debadged front and sides by the dealer before applying a teflon wax.

What a change from my WK1. The 8-speed gearbox is amazing, and I need to spend some time setting up a couple of things on the EVIC and the Uconnect and finding out about what command does what on those headlights (not sure exports are the same as the ones sold in the US... we'll see).

The interior is such an improvement over my '07, and the truck being so much quieter, I get to speeds I would not expect to reach without a lot more noise...

First mods will be underhood appearance and catch can (orange, from Billet Tech) and a full set of weathertech floor and cargo mats. Probably a couple of LED bulbs too

I am already eyeing towards changing the exhaust and maybe an Injen CAI, but this will be after the break-in period.

Oh, and I need to change my signature and avatar!

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Congrats on the new car! and I hope your export version isn't the same as the ones we have here in the middle east, you probably still wont get the full Uconnect functionality (xm radio, media apps and the uconnect remote start feature), but I hope you can at least adjust the DRL settings to how you want them
looking forward to the pictures, don't keep us waiting too long lol

Thanks all!!
I do believe they are the same as in the Middle East. The only app I have is the Performance Pages. But without built-in connectivity, there is not much more that I expect. At least the Performance pages came pre-loaded (I seem to remember JDR8 didn't have them, in Canada). No remote-start either, which is to be expected in Europe (where I believe it is somehow illegal).

DRLs: so far my observations are from the reflection in other car's rear bumper... so not very reliable. It seems the bumper LED "bar" is on as DRL, but not the headlight halo. I tried to activate the parking lights but it did nothing... and later, with lights on "Auto", the natural light having decreased a bit, the parking lights icon came on (on its own) and I believe I reached the holy grail of driving with LED "bars" and "halos" at the same time. I will need to tinker more with these.

Weather is crap for pictures, I should be able to take some tomorrow.

Oh, and despite a thorough check upon delivery, it's only when I was at home that I noticed that on both tail lights, the inner portion (mounted on the liftgate) is the non-SRT bright chrome version... So it will go back to the dealer at some point, soon.
Strangely, on "settings/lights" I cannot get the box to stay ticked to get the headlights to follow the steering... so the dealer will need to have a look at this too.

I see the t stat is right upfront but nobody has done a right up. How did you bleed the system etc.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

let it cool....removed the 2 bolts and changed it quickly...very quickly...LOL.
Then I just started it with the cap off and each time the level dropped I filled it until it stopped. very easy and took 10 minutes.

I also FINALLY got my half covers and fuse box cover back....just installed those as well. Grille rings and the 2 lower rings should be here tomorrow.(fingers crossed) LOL! Been 3 months!!!!!
