Re: Jeep service costs

Just got the 20k service at John Hughs. $270.00 after I changed my own oil, filter, and air filter. You can see how they pay for their grand buildings and free coffees!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I am coming up to the 20k Service as well.

Three dealers in Perth, all quoted with 15.00 of each other and 150.00 more than the same service in the eastern states.

Re: WK2 Bullbar spotted in Sydney

Looks like we can't win either way. I expect that the best way to avoid hitting something is to stay of the roads from dusk to dawn.
