    And I'm in love. I unfortunately had to go to work after picking it up, but still managed to put 100 miles on it.

    One question I have is what is the best bet to protect my new cat from theft? I don't have a garage, but I do have assigned off street parking. And I have someone coming out tomorrow to install lojack. But, on a brief look through the forums it looks like there is factory installed gps with uconnect. Is that correct? Do I need the lojack still?

    Also I'm thinking of getting some locking lugs for the wheels, any recommendations?

    First off, congrats! 100 miles is not bad for a day. Took me a couple days to hit that no thanks to my work hours.
    Regarding the locking lugs - I installed these a couple weeks ago. I have the black wheels and I prefer this look over the OEM lugs.

    Theft is unavoidable. If they want it bad enough, they will take it. That's the good thing about insurance...

    Way to go! Congrats on the Cat. Smith & Wesson is an effective theft deterrent. ;)

    Congrats on Rock'n the Red Charger HC! Welcome to the forum.

    I picked up the 20 locking lug nut set. Gorilla brand. They are holding up ok so far.

    Uconnect can tell you where your car is located. Free first year, then an annual fee.

    Congrats! Regarding theft locking lugs may help deter some, but a pro thief would more than likely be able to remove them still. Personally I'd be more worried about vandalism than theft parking outside all the time. I would say you could cover it but that might cause more attention to be drawn to it.

    Congrats on the Cat!

    I would suggest getting a paint protection package for the car, especially if it's sitting outside all the time.
