I love my Islander.....
Silver 6sp..... I think the Decals look best on the silver.....
Mine is a DD as well.... Tires are pretty quiet for what they are ....
Bit of noise around 65mph and up but not really noticeable......
They stop pretty well too from around 40mph (almost cruised through a red light but stopped with some howling before it mattered)

Wow! $300 ded for a windshield????! What was the total? I've never seen a windshield cost more than $200....
OP Congrats on the Islander! Don't forget to wave!

|JRose73||The tires are quiet and the ride is smooth. You can hear them if you're making a hard turn and the windows are down, that's about it really. I've had mine for almost 2 month and love it. Except the $300 deductible I just had to shell out for a new windshield. You'll love it too!.|

After going back and forth with my dealer I am finally getting the Islander by the end of this week (hopefully). I had wanted my new ride equipped with side airbags but the Sport Unlimited's they found- the dealers weren't willing to trade. My question is this- it will be my DD and family hauler. Will I be happy with the Rubi tires?? I haven't driven one with those tires but have been told their pretty loud and ride a bit more rough. It won't be seeing much off road initially. The dealer said they would swap them out if I didn't like them. I got the silver one, hoping I'm going to like the decals or they will come off real soon.
Thanks again for all the help.
