    Welcome to the club. You could probably get a disc off eBay if you keep you eye on it or contact people breaking them but in my opinion, really not worth it. The latest disc compatible with your unit is still several years old so you are better off just using a free app like Waze Also, what’s a Clive Sutton limited? I know he’s a car dealer but unsure what’s different on yours. Are you sure you haven’t got a limited (leather interior, heated seats, chrome grill etc) & the Clive Sutton badge isn’t just a dealer badge from when they sold the car? Either way, looks like a clean motor & hope it brings you years of motoring fun
  3. Subscribing. Don’t want to commit as waiting for several parts to come from Italy that only got ordered at lunch time

    Nice, rare colour as well! Does yours have the illuminated side skirts & rear bumper as well? I had to pay a body shop to modify my mudflaps to fit the Startech ones! Nothings ever straight forward lol

    Welcome. Good to hear other Startech ones are still kicking about. I’ve got a 5.7 one & just got a crd one for a mate (although his is missing the alloys but I have a spare set I’m trying to convince him to have lol). There’s another 5.7 kicking about the local area too but outside of here, I’ve not seen a single other with the full kit on the road. Stick some photos up & enjoy your motor :)
  6. I bought mine from auto styling uk. Mine is the shape before yours though & they don’t seem to list them. They are made by EGR & very good quality. I’ve had many parts made by them for cars over the years (mostly Mitsubishi though to be fair) so might be worth an email. I will have a proper look once sober
  7. I didn’t think it was necessary on hid because of the flat beam. I know some cars had a lever where you can flip the reflector for each side but don’t think it exists on jeep. I would be inclined to buy the stickers & just take them with you. I bought 2 lots of headlamp protectors for mine with one lot having the beam stickers. I can now just swap between the 2 without worrying about the hassle of peeling all the residue off afterwards
  8. Does it have HID or halogen lights?
  9. Ok thanks, will wait to see what happens over the next few days I guess :icon_lol:
  10. Hmm, tempting. What's the latest I can book? My relationship is on the rocks so if it goes belly up, I'm coming lol. I assume it's dog friendly as won't get a sitter in time now? Decisions decisions...

    Yep, I have the full kit but also bought a full spare set of alloys so I could have a matching spare. I don't really want to separate the caps but might if you get really stuck. Failing that you can buy an alloy off me lol. I will pm you the details of an English speaking rep at startech so you can get a price as they still stock most things. Just be warned though that the prices are quite crazy. Last week I paid £108 including delivery for 1x LED for my side skirts Keep me posted if you have any joy with a specialist as really want to work on my lump at some point

    Ok cool, well I would start by getting a tuner. Unless you can get one talking to your EUDM spec PCM / ECU, then subsequent mods will be quite tricky. I couldn't find anyone in the UK to touch mine without the hardware first as we have Motorola ECU's, not the more common Bosch ones used on earlier models & the diesels The supercharger kit is kinda generic for the engine, not the car. It might just be worth a look around on the US forums to see what people are using to see which ones are an easier fit as position of ancillaries will vary between models. I've personally not heard of bottom end issues. Most common problem is gearbox with people that fit the SRT engine or top end going if the valve seats fail (especially on PFL models). If you intend on doing the valve seats, you may as well fit a mild cam & uprate springs etc whilst in there. Let me know if you find someone in the UK willing to do it as I have a collection of parts this end I need to get my teeth into at some point

    How much do you want to spend? Headers, cams, supercharger, tuner etc etc Simplest mod to get things going would be a diablosport tuner but be aware you might have to change the PCM to a USDM spec one to get it to communicate. This will give you ability to change shift points, fuelling, disable MDS, rev limiter, speed limiter ext plus allow you to tune to support future mods. Superchips do a version as well but be aware that they have been known to brick the PCM, including mine!
