Cool Jeep Newbie

Hey all, just traded in my 2008 BMW 335i to move into something a little more "family friendly". So here was my move

To this guy

While I miss that awesome little car like crazy, I have to admit I do rather like this new JGC. Trying to hold off the modders bug as much as possible, but poking around on here a bit I have a feeling that wont last long...

Unlike most CUVs and SUVs to include the X1, X3 and X5 the WK2 handles more like a RWD vehicle than most. You can chase apexes with a WK2 and trail brake.

I also had a 2008 BMW 335i before my current Jeep (mine was a sedan though). Overall, I'm happy with the switch I made. Welcome and enjoy!

Thanks! I do miss that little thing, but so far the Jeep has been a great vehicle so far. The first thing I did to it was take the GRAND CHEROKEE chrome bling off of the doors. It looks a lot cleaner now.

^I did the same thing when I first got mine. Except mine was a 2011 and imo the door trim is even worse looking.
