    So I waited 3 months for an allocation to open and finally Thursday it happened only to be shot down on no Sublime green. So Friday I hit the phones and started on the Dodge search from closest on out. I called 25-35 dealers with all but 3 snickering and saying no I don't have any unspoken for. To finally one saying yes but the owner wants to drive it for the weekend at least and then he might sell it to you Monday. Yah right I said 100 miles of throttle beating miles. Nah. One was $1800 over with everything but the Laguna seats and finally one was 10k over but the sales guy right away said throw them an offer all they can say is no. I said MSRP then he laughed said I know they won't do that so I said 2k. He called back ten minutes later and said when you wanna pick it up. So Monday we're taking a 700 mile round trip to Sullivan Missouri to pick up my new Cat. All options which I wanted except this things got Red seatbelts. Who the heck puts red seatbelts in a green car with black seats. Oh well if I don't like them they're easy to change.
    Already ordered the KW springs for her. I'll post pics Monday.

    My question is is there anything that can be done thru the dealers about the terrible paint match on the bumpers. The front looks ok in the pics but the rear looks a mile off

    Congrats on finding the car at a price that's acceptable to you! Don't sweat the bumpers ( you're better off not messing with them ) because after you see the car, you'll likely forget about that issue. It seems common for all plastic bumper fascias when compared to painted steel. Secondly, I didn't order red seat belts because of the same concerns you have. They came on the car anyway and after seeing them, I'm glad that it came that way. You're going to really love the Hellcat! Enjoy it to the max!

    i would love to swap you seat belts if you wish...mine has 1,000 miles on it, so the belts are mint?

    if its an easy swap id swap you

    most sublimes have mismatch bumpers....accept it....no one notices accept the owners

    congrats on finding your car...ive been preaching your method for 5 months now with most people saying they just cant find one using it....its exactly what i did......its cool it still works

    Check out the paint in the light. Photos may exaggerate any color difference. My fascias are extremely close in color to the body. Congratulations!

    only if your dealer doesnt have 10 people in front of you
    only if your dealer can get any built

    many who ordered didnt get one, they sat and hoped and got nothing

    Yeah, I think that when you see it in person, your gonna love the seat belts. And like it was already said, the paint should be fine.
