    After waiting all this time for my Charger, I was told by the Dealer, if I want my car they can no longer offer the Harmon Kardon system.

    Is this true? Should I wait or just be happy with standard stereo?

    If I accept they can produce the Charger.

    What should I do?

    I checked today and the HK package is still on the "Build and Price" site. I'm worried because the Laguna package is not there.

    A few people having the same issue. I had that dilemma with first the seats and wheels then sunroof when I ordered. No sunroof for me. It may or may not come back on the order pages as the sunroof did. Will not matter unless you find the right dealer with an allocation not spoken for. The dealers have way over sold already.

    How long have you been waiting for your charger?
    Didn't order banks just open in January?

    My journey with this vehicle started last July when I tried to order. Dealer told me to wait and put my order in Jan/2015. But no indication that what was ordered would be such a problem. I guess with all the problems everybody is having trying to get these Hellcats I should be happy.

    Did Dodge/FCA lose the Harmon Kardon as a vendor and I should just accept the regular stereo

    No offense but I wouldn't let the radio decide whether to get one built or not.

    Few people the last day or 2 saying they couldn't order HK audio and also a few others went BX to BG possibly for the same reason.

    I assume they are still available for the Challenger because Harmon Kardon comes STANDARD, where as the Charger it is an option?

    There will be something in place, maybe better, I am not that impressed with the HK. Its overrated as far as I am concerned.

    I'm very impressed with my HK system coming from over 2 decades of sound system upgrades with different aftermarket brands installed by others. Now I dont have to worry about upgrading the system anymore. The bass is great, the treble so crisp and clear I have to turn it down 4 notches below the bar or fiancé gets irritated.

    I love the HK system, have had it in 2 of my Challengers. The HK sound quality is fantastic, the sound volume, however, is lacking.

    The HK in the Charger is configured different. Subs are not in the spare tire well. Different amp maybe too. Configured like the 300s. Brampton Builder will maybe set us straight.
