    image.jpg image.jpg Dropped the Beast off today for CQuartz & tint. Getting 30% on front and back window, 20% on back doors.

    Anyway, I put her in valet. When I walked in he had at least 8 cars there, Lambhorghini, Ferarri, Porsche & Rolls Royce. I kind of fee like a jerk for doing valet mode after seeing that I'm not a super fast or uncommon car there. In fact it was he cheapest car in the place.

    Anyone else feel weird about leaving it in valet?

    Not a jerk. Your car won't be the one they take to lunch.

    Seconded on the post pics.
    I just picked up my Charger Thursday. It was pouring and miserable on Long Island, the roads here are atrocious after this winter and there is sand and debris all over the place. I drove home as cautiously as I could but in four miles the car was a mess. So I ran all my errands in my little "Cat" and made sure she was good an dirty. Friday I washed it all down and I'm looking at the windows and they already seem to have a pretty good factory tint, the rear is darker than the front and the front seemed to have a nice tint too? I added the Laguna leather, so the inside is very light in full sunlight. Anyone else notice this wither their HC (Charger) or am I just blinded by the "Cat".
    I also wrote somewhere on this site I had a little buyers remorse about not upgrading to the "Monkey Brass" wheels. I take all that back. Jazz Blue paint and the black wheels are very stealth and even the badge is quenched.
    So in my short time time with this beast I report the following:
    Those that know what this car is recognize it right away. Those that think they have something get seriously surprised when they can not pull away.
    I'm sorry and I know I'm way off topic here but I took it out for a spin today and came across a GT500, probably a 2014 and I wasn't really heading the way he was but he jumped on the highway. He was looking at the fat "Cat" thinking what a dope. Well he got on and I thought this guy was going to put his head through the roof of his car. He was pushing so hard on the accelerator and staring at me in his rear-view mirror a half car length behind him, he was like what?????? Funny stuff. This car is pisser to drive.
    Then you have young kids that know exactly what it is from a mile away. Driving 30-40 MPH minding my own business in Eco mode. They sit at the intersection to see if it really is what they think it is. I'm afraid to look at YouTube. This stupid car has had more pictures and video taken of it in the last five days than I have taken in five years.
    I never had the urge to get a "Go Pro" but I'm pretty close now. Just afraid, and for all you guys who use this thing, one mistake and it's admissible in court. FYI. Just make sure you run over it or throw it under someone's wheels before the cops show up. Sorry LEO's, no disrespect , but if your reading these post your here for the same reason as the rest of us are.
    Sorry folks, I guess if you haven't taken delivery yet you won't totally understand.

    I totally know what you mean!!! As I was picking up my Hellcat from getting the CQuartz on it, I'm pulling out of the lot and about to get on the main road and a mustang pulls in and I notice him eyeing my cat!! He pulls up beside me, makes the rolldown your window motion and as I do, he blurts out "is that a HellCat??" I say yes, first Charger Hellcat in town and just got it protected. He asks why I don't have any friends in the car and if he can be my friend and go for a ride??? I say "No, sorry, have errands to go run." He asks if he can snap a few pics, I oblige and get on my way home. On the way home, I decided to put a little lead down on the pedal, go past a few people up to a stop light. Look over to my right and there is a lady in a Grand Caravan motioning at me to go!!! I laugh my ass off a bit and put the pedal down when the light turns green. I'm guessing I'm going to be getting this a lot around town..lol

    It's your car so you have to take precautions. Don't feel bad about it, if it was their car they would too.

    I guess we ought to be careful. I mean I'm sitting here with a smirk on my face but I consider myself a sought of religious guy and this cat can be a very prideful possession. I have enough problems in my life and don't want this between me and Him. But even on Easter Sunday a couple of the guys got wind I have this and they were asking about it. I hope this euphoria shakes off quick, before He gets real mad at me.

    I did the same thing when I dropped mine for the CQuartz finest. Did not feel bad at all!

    Getting work done on the Hellcats in the morning when we land from a flight and both cars will be in Valet mode. The place has done tons of nice cars, don't care, still leaving it in Valet mode.

    Ha, all those other cars are pussy cars. I would have told him I'm parking it where you work on it. No key for you. LOL

    Nah I'd do the same. Besides they probably won't even notice and if they do then it's probably because they were trying to get a little frisky with your cat. haha

    I was just going to request that you report back with the results because I may be interested in going there but I keep forgetting you pickup up the car in AZ, you don't actually live here. D'oh!

    Not quite but Michael and Gabriel would probably enjoy it, but they can get around a lot quicker on their own.
