I got the call today. Dealer has an allocation.
The allocation is for an M6. I ordered an A8. The question is, should I flip-flop?
And the answer is. . . . .
If you are happy I'm happy
Not many M6's which could be good for you and if they'll haggle otherwise it's up to you and you should get what makes you feel warm and fuzzy.
I placed my order 251 days ago, on Friday, Sep 12, 2014, the first order at a small dealership. I was a diehard for the A8, but after all the wait and then the question put to me, I flip-flopped. And only took me about a minute to do so. Since I have the Scat Pack with the A8, I know what the automatic is all about. I am looking forward to experiencing the Hellcat with M6. Plus, I get the other options I wanted . . . Torred exterior and Premium Leather seats. This is an MSRP deal.
I'm not sure that they looked at ALL the options, however, the dealer indicated that the only restrictions are "no auto" and "no sublime".
Unless your car is going to live at the strip & your knees are good, I think you'll have much more fun in a manual car... IMO, those paddles on the A8 will get old compared to grinding out your own gears....
I think part of what convinced me too was Tammie 's recording (Challenger Hellcat Exhaust on the Freeway).
Tammie was whipping her hellcat proud of her
My left knee is not 100%, but I think it will hold up well enough.
My knees say A8
SRThellkitty - I like your Racer X avatar. I actually have a 1:18 scale Shooting Star and Mach 5.
Your going to be very happy with the M6. Very smooth shifting and the rear gearing makes it very functional. The rear gearing in my 14 SRT8 had me shifting out of 1st gear a lot more often and sooner. Congrats!
i vote for the A8 and 2016
