    I noticed that one of my exhaust tips is not aligned very well with the rear bumper so I took a look to see if it can be adjusted. I was glad to see a bolt on one side that looks like you can loosen it and change the angle unfortunately there is a fairly large tack weld on the other side. I was going to try to file the tack weld down to make the adjustment. Does anyone else have a better idea? 2014-11-30 19.58.27.jpg

    Loosen the bolt and you will be able to manipulate the alignment... Been there, done that on my '12 SRT... Same style

    Take it back to the dealer and order another Hellcat

    In the mean time, I will buy it from the dealer while you wait for another
    new Hellcat that has the correct adjustment. LOL

    It doesn't seem to move due to the tack weld. See the photo. Maybe yours wasn't welded.

    I mentioned it at the dealership. The service manager got under the car and says "It can't be moved because it's welded." I wasn't looking at it with him so I assumed that it was welded all the way around. The car is stored right now so I can't take it back now. Sometimes things just work out better if you do them yourself.

    If you're super particular about a car, don't buy a Chrysler product...Hopefully and maybe they will have the build quality issues worked out for the next run.

    Nope, mine was welded just like yours... It will move, trust me. You will have to put forth some effort, but it moves.

    I assume that I have to loosen the bolt first. I will try it tomorrow.
