I think they did a "rush" launch to make use of the Rudd 50% depreciation allowance.

I was told that I could not take home any of the stock Challengers as that was all there was until late Jan and that they needed them for test driving.

Oh well, good things come to those who wait

I imagine once the first big deliveries come in late Jan early Feb MM will do a add blitz. I have yet to get my delivery date.....

Just looking at the accessories catalogue, The Rear Air dam makes the car look pretty good, anyone getting that? Also there is the front air dam, which I am not sold on it.

The accessories I will be getting are
rear air dam,towbar,Rear spoiler,Ipod Adaptor for MMCs, Scuff plates and Cargo linder.

Yes well as we know they are all diesels anyway. But interesting to see his comments in the Herald Sun Drive section today on the Challenger. I'm sure he said he didn't drive it, his wife did . So don't know how he can comment on it.
Anyway will have an XLS for five days ....we will see what it is like on and offroad

Good luck with the test drive Pickle. I look forward to reading your comments. Particularly the differences between the Trition and the Challenger.

Yeah should be interesting. The Triton is not a bad ute at all.....but thats it, it's a ute. And you certainly know about it offroad with nothing in the back. On road still a bit quirky but I would put that down to tyre size. Going a bit wider to a 225 certainly would have improved on road manners.
The Challenger is a whole different ball game. Will be on 265/65 17" and a coil arse end so expecting a bit more sedate ride.
What to me will be intersting is I have a good choice of tracks for testing what it is like offroad. My main criteria will be the difference between leaving the difflock in or leaving ASC on (traction control) working on some of the harder tracks.
