Picked it up last night
 
First pix. Putting on about 300 miles over the next 3 days, taking it to the track on Saturday AM. Hope to have more pix soon. First impression is that this vehicle is very different than my '06, will update.

Jeep Thoughts by Jack Handy

55 miles
Air conditioned seats!!
A dead pedal!
More room (a 27" iMac now fits comfortably on the back seat floor on its base)
I can finally control my iPhone from the steering wheel!
Love the backup camera, I definitely need it.
I've already accidentally downshifted via the paddle, haven't had occasion to use them yet productively.
Speed is very deceptive, of course I'm comparing a nearly 6yr old daily driver with 67k mi to a brand new one but.... Everything is quite a bit quieter, except the stereo which is amazing with the right source material.
I can't wait to get this guy on a road course, the handling is amazingly better, I knew the limits of the wk1, need to find this one's.
The lack of steering feel, road feel, road noise, all conspire to disconnect me from the experience of driving vs the wk1, definitely will take some getting used to.
Brakes, woah!! The wk1 was great, these are phenomenal. I'm gong to have to be careful when I drive my wife's car now.

would love to see some sunshine pics...but I know you guys are like us with all the rain.....not seen the sun in days!

Love the color too, looks like a very deep grey. I got black with my wk2 but if I bought a second or went back in time and mineral grey was an option I would have had to think harder.

Sweet That is the color I would get if I had lots of money.
