    As a Sublime owner.....I would not. I might be tempted to trade for a 16 Hellcat and a decent amount of cash though. Otherwise it is Sublime all the way.

    I did it. My Tor Red cat will not be mine very soon. Same type of deal. I net a new car, plus sunroof, brass monkey, full leather seats and engine block heater. I got a hell of a deal on trade in, new car below msrp.

    Well, I think so yes. Just dumb luck. Dealer rx 4...5 allocations (somewhere I around there it was more than 3.) They started talking to me a few weeks b4 deal sealed. Deal not right I said no thanks When we sealed it they had 4 hours to input which was about 3 weeks later. I think they wanted to ensure they were speedy to sell to ensure future allocation or who knows what. I've sent them business and done some pr and charity stuff for them. Maybe it was a combination of those things.

    I also ride motorcycles with one of the Deboer kids. With Lithia Corp within 20 miles of me that didn't hurt either.

    From what I've seen between a 2015 and 2016, the end of MY2015 had better paint than the start of MY2016. It could be better now that a few weeks of builds are going. In all, the radio and PCM updates are TSBs for 2015.

    HK radio update was released as of October 28th. New - HK AMP Flash RRT 15-102 | SRT Hellcat Forum (http://www.hellcat.org/attachments/000000003b9b8419-pdf.28498/)
    PCM update here - TSB update 18-035-15 REV. B | SRT Hellcat Forum

    I hope that 2016 QA/QC is better as they reduced the warranty from 100,000 to 60,000 mile powertrain warranty.

    Slowhand...they will trade your used 2015 for a new 2016 even up? Seriously? They have a customer willing to pay sublime or something? Why would any dealer do it otherwise?

    It just occurred to me, if I took the 125% deal, put it on a 2016 Hellcat, then repeated that a couple of time I could make some money. But I doubt it would work a single time.

    Let us know how that works out for you. ;)
    I got the 125% letter multiple times during my ownership of the 09.

    They won't honor it for a hellcat, They are trying to get people with shit cars to come in and then just tack the 25% of the value into the price of the car.

    You Sublime owners are lucky, that is the color period, don't do it you will regret it, PCP in 2010, 2013 and 2016 couldn't get Sublime on my Charger
