New TH i4 in LA

Hi there folks
Purchased the last B new 2016 white trailhawk in the LA area. It's a i4 ,which drove me crazy the first few weeks. Thought really hard about selling it and getting a V6 but alas... wouldn't make sense financially to do so. From what I read around here, the i4 seems to have a better gear ratio for off roading. The mpg is a letdown since it seems like the difference is almost nothing.
I must say though that the more it stretches her legs the better the throttle response is. I dont know if its placebo or I'm just learning to put a lil' more input on the go pedal.

Still in the honeymoon stage that I catch myself staring at the car everytime I walk past it. Mesmerized by the modern Jeep look.

Anyways, great forum and really enjoying the fact that it's greatly geared towrds the KL which makes reading alot more car specific.

Ghost, Live in Arcadia. Where are you guys headed? Planning to o dirt bike riding already fior the weekend but if we end up in the same OHV then maybe I could properly introduce myself and maybe indulge on a cold one.


Thanks everyone for the welcome!!!

BTW...here she is and I don't know if it's a setup but when I called the dealer that I want to see the car , she said great she's right in the showroom floor. So when I stepped in the dealership and saw it, I had to grip my wallet real tight. hehehe
