    So this is the first weekend with my new cat and I have decided I am taking it for a run up to Daytona Beach on the "redneck raceway" also know as I-95. This way I can get the first rock chips and scratches out of the way and move on to the enjoyment phase! I may even park it in a public lot and risk the door ding. But unlike my other cars I obsessed over (to the point of not driving them) I am going to get my moneys worth with this one!

    When I bought my 2013 SRT8 I couldn't enjoy the car for the simple fact it might get a scratch or worse,I still will not drive my Cat on a wet road,I couldn't enjoy the car so I sold it.When I bought 2014 I bought it to enjoy and I did until my Cat came in,I will not bring it out on a wet road,It is not my primary vehicle,I have put over 5000 miles on it since Memorial day when it came in.The car is undecidable to someone that has not driven 1.My advice from experience is to drive the car and enjoy and appreciate what it is,the most powerful off of the showroom car that you can own.It is a marvel of power and technology that will be a once in a lifetime experience,drive,enjoy.I dont look at as an investment,I look at it as a CAR THAT IS TO BE DRIVEN and enjoyed,drive them and enjoy the attention they draw.

    Have fun with it and drive the crap out of it. My cat is my daily driver I love her so much that I hate driving anything else.

    get a clear bra and dont worry about stone chips
    dont park next to people and dont get door dings (park waaaay far away)
    scratches will happen, but can be minimized

    my only stone chips are on the rims

    i got clear bra at 500 miles
