what did you order options wise?
Yes Melbourne. I got comfort, visibility (but without laser), oak grain trim, tyre pressure monitor and drive recorder. Black with blue stitching, Portimao blue.

Just had a 15amp plug installed in the garage. Will attempt to charge without paying for a wall charger.

What’s your plan for charging?

Awesome, I look forward to hearing about yours when you get it! I didn't realise it was possible to option the Visibility Package without laser, mine is coming with laser. I was a bit 50/50 over getting the drive recorder, wasn't sure if it was worth it from what people have said. Will you put a dash cam in?

I haven't thought that far ahead with charging, I was going to use the 'granny cable' as that should be sufficient for most overnight charges. What was your reasoning for a 15A plug installed, from what I read the 'granny cable' can only output 10A?

Apparently 5.5 hours from a 10A domestic socket or 3.5 hours from a dedicated wall socket (car can only accept 3.6kW).

Same here, and I decided to get it as
  1. A dedicated Dashcam doesn't look as nice (they're better nowadays!)
  2. Dash cams dont have 4 angles like the drive recorder
  3. Hooks into in car telemetry, just more integrated

On the downside, the recording time limit is annoying. And I'm not sure if it works upon impact/while car is parked like you can with some dash cams.

I went without the laser because I wanted to save some money at purchase, they’d be way more expensive if I had to replace them without insurance. It’s not a feature I’d need because I hardly drive at night or on country roads.

The 15 amp was suggested by the electrician. It basically makes it more robust for long term use. Who knows if that’s a thing, but it wasn’t much more money. He said he’d come back and replace with 2 10amps if I want after the car arrives.

Exactly my reasons. Really liked the idea of side cameras too.

I actually haven't picked it up yet, that's a sneaky pic from the dealer a couple of days ago! I'm picking my little baby up at 1PM today though!!

It does take a while - my car arrived on Tuesday and they even needed today morning to prep mine. So basically 5 days here and that's with me nagging the dealer constantly.

It will be worth the wait, trust me!!

Haha congrats mate I will need to hold on a few more days really looks like I'm going to be getting after Easter... need to hold on a few more days and sleeps haha. Going to pick up the car and then I will loose it so I can get ceramic coating/window tint done and then blackvue 900s with battery installed in the car! So excited once all this is done.
For those who got tint done what percentage are all of you doing on your beasts?

Ooh lovely, so nice

I thought about the spoiler , but its a bit inconspicuous and I like to see it a bit more, so did not option it.
I was wondering about the MSport differential option thought but for like an extra $2500 it was just too expensive to justify

I like the M seat belts though, but maybe a bit too much.

My arrival date is 26/05 so not to sure that yours will arrive 22/05 as I think it gos to Port Kembla first
Did you check on the Hoegh web site?

Hi baturbo

Have a look at this link

https://www.hoeghautoliners.com/sail...ate=2020-03-01

When I put in date range from 01st March 2020, destination port Melbourne it does not list Hoegh Trigger scheduled to sail to Melbourne.

The only ships sailing at this time period are
Hoegh Trotter,London,Dignity Ace and Serenity Ace.

So maybe it's not on the Trigger?
In my previous posts I entered each port on that web site as a destination so I could see what ports the Trigger stops at and Melbourne was not listed

These estimated dates are old now, so new end date to Port Kembla is 25/05/20, below are the ports the Hoegh Trigger stops at.

Antwerp 21st March

Bremerhaven 23rd March

Southampton 26th March

Santander 29th March (Current Location)

Baltimore 07th April

Jacksonville 12th April

Kingston Jamaica 15th April

Auckland New Zealand 06th May

Port Kembla 14th May


You may need to check your dealer gave you the correct VIN number possibly.
