Re: CRD oil on special

MS11106 is the one to meet. It is similar to MB229.51 but adds tests for high temp deposits. Nylon claims their oil meets the requirements, but no actual approval.

Re: Jeep service costs

They say sealed for life, but I think the general consensus is 100k or sooner if towing a lot. It costs about $1k for the service, but I'd be taking it to a ZF specialist.

Re: Going in for an early First Service, 7500 Km's

Fiat Chrysler Australia specify it or else no warranty. They say Australia's harsh conditions make 6 month servicing necessary, though it's no harsher than the U.S. So it's really about money.
