    I have never owned a sports car. (already planning to leave my ego at the door and attend a professional driving course. I think I owe it to myself and the car)

    I have been a Dodge Cummins fan ever since I could drive. Sold my 13sec 5.9.

    Just placed an order for a Hellcat 6 speed torred, no other options.
    I'm out of the country and will be back in Colorado in early march. We shall see.

    I will also be the proud owner of a kia rio 5 speed with 99,000 miles on it.


    Being that I'm a first time new car buyer this website has proved invaluable. Almost felt "armed" when enquiring to dealers.

    Cheers

    -Aaron.

    Tammie,

    I chose those options due to I guess its the "fastest" way to get one.

    I'm glad you like yours the way it is :)

    ...yeah that sublime cat in colorado....damn shame. That's the exact reason I plan on using the black key for awhile and getting professional instruction.

    Well looks like I won't be getting one.

    I was quoted 5k over.

    I sent the deposit

    A day later I ask what is the final out the door number

    "92,000"

    I told them some things that are not repeatable and canceled the check.

    They email back saying the email was a mistake. They were giving someone else a quote for the same car. they said they were sorry for the confusion and want to sell the car at 5k over to me. I told them it wasn't right to quote someone 92k either (anyone's guess if it was an actual mistake). Told them have fun staring at your one hellcat in the showroom.

    I don't care. I'm taking my chances and waiting till spring to find one at or below MSRP.

    Welcome Aaron, I want to see your HC when it comes in. I have some spots you can take it to get work done. Next time you ride in mine, I will have to open it up a bit more for you!! No more neighborhood cruising.

    Wow! That is some shady dealer service there! Sorry to hear about your experience. I'm glad you joined the forum. There is great information here and a few finding them at MSRP. I'd like to think the greedy dealers get it back two fold for not treating people right, but I think it's wishful thinking on my end. I really hope you find a Hellcat just like you want it and good for you for throwing it back in their face. I am glad my dealer took good care of me because I was one of those people that wanted my car so bad I would have let them probably jerk me around for $5k. I'm not proud, glad it didn't come to that.o_O

    I never updated this thread, Yeah screwy for sure.

    I switched dealers and ordered dec 23rd 14

    I got an email today from the dealer. Got my VIN!! Car is pretty much the same but I switched to an A8. After more research that A8 is not the run of the mill auto and will bang gears faster than I ever could.

    Off to D1 limbo now! I have hopes it will go fast (pun intended) because I pretty much have a base model car.
