7) Flip glass in the trunk
8) Power folding mirrors Aussie export

Just my two cents
Yeah we have 3 of these standard and one as an option plus active exhaust system standard on mine

Well unless there has been a significant change we don't know about you don't have;

5) Lane Departure warning Aussie export (we have blind spot monitoring if that's what your thinking of.... but so does US)
6) Dual opening panaramic roof Aussie export available We have a dual pane sunroof, but only the front pane opens....but so does US)

Please explain how you have an active exhaust system?

Yeah my mistake, that was what i was thinking with 5. I miss read 6 with Dual Opening.
The active exhaust is mentioned in the brochure, and my understanding of it is the 2 spring loaded butterflies on the exhaust system, which adjusts depending on how much exhaust pressure you have

I would like to see the Bluetooth selector button as the first option or at least on the first page on the media control interface.

The option of locking or unlocking the doors from the rear door handles with keyless entry.

Automatic folding mirrors (already been said)

Heated seats/steering wheel time out and also decrease from hi to low while in use after time in use.

Spider monkey rims are hard work to clean, another option would have been great.

There is a different set of wheels called the goliaths that are avaliable.

Ahhh yes well the brochure likes to exaggerate a bit, but I know what your talking about. I personally wouldn't call it active, but it supposedly helps with fuel consumption (pfft as if lol).

Re: what would you change on the 2014 Jeep SRT?

What's the difference between blind spot monitoring and lane departure warning? Mine has the lit up orange triangle in my mirror if a car is in my blind spot then give a loud beep and drops the radio volume if I put on my indicator if a car is in my blind spot?

Re: what would you change on the 2014 Jeep SRT?

Blind spot monitoring is exactly what you describe but lane departure warning can tell if you are straying out of your lane even if there is no car in your blind spot. Basically if you drift out of your lane it will alert you.

Blind spot monitoting is the feature you described. This will display the yellow triangle if a vehicle is in your blind spot. It will also alert you audibly if you turn on your turn signal with a vehicle in the blind spot.

Lane departure is a feature that will give you a warning if you start to drift out of your lane, whether on a highway or single lane road.
