    Hi Guys and Gals… I've been watching and waiting for a long time now. Been wanting a Challenger since 1970, when I was still a kid. Never have had a new car. Nothing ever fell into place and when the '08s came out I promised myself I'd get one soon. Still had to put things on hold due to family matters and life itself. When Mom passed on last year, I figured I get a '14 as I was born in '57, turned 57 and aways used 57 as a race#.

    So then I hear the rumors of the new Chally, and then the rumors of HP. When they announced the 707 in July, I went straight down to my dealer and gave him a K to be 1st in line. He has always promised MSRP. Unfortunately, I'm stuck on a sunroof (Torred, M6, Nav, red/black), so here I sit as 2 have passed by. The GM has been great with me and will continue to hold my spot in line. Hopefully the glass will make production soon. I think I won't wait too much longer tho.

    I just wanted to Thank you all for a great Forum. Totally enjoy it. I hope I can add something to it one of these days.

    Welcome, great story and I hope you get your order processed with the sun roof someday although if I'm not mistaken the sun roof may not be available any longer.

    As the prior poster mentioned, I don't think there will be sunroofs in the two-door Hellcats, just the Chargers. I suggest re-thinking the necessity of a sunroof, and don't deny yourself the pleasure of this incredible vehicle over an option.
    Best of luck in the quest, and thanks for joining the site!

    Welcome, it sounds like you race? If so you can live w/o the roof for your helmet.

    Good luck. I think the rumour is July for the sunroof. But I would not take that as gospel as it seems to be a rather big issue. Personally I would rethink going with the roof as you could be waiting for a very long time and it might still not happen.

    Thanks everyone… Well, I've know it all along and sometimes I have too much patience. Sure would be nice if there was an official date, statement, something to confirm one way or the other. "Late 2015, 2nd production run" ain't a whole lot of persuasion when you see them go back and forth with the hood, colors and such.

    Went down to the dealer again yesterday to see if they had any more updates or if they could possible get any info outta the company. The GM has tried. Nadda. Said the next Allo' will be in a couple weeks, so I will wait at least till then since I have to anyway. Tough going down there tho as the #1 car (color change from what I want) that was supposed to be mine sits there with my name on it. My dealer really has tried hard.

    I suppose I could always just get one without and then trade it if the factory ever makes up their mind.

    I think the the last 3 trucks I have had a sunroof and where never opened,the last 2 Challengers have had sunroofs and again never opened, The sunroof option or satin black hood would not stop me from ordering a car or if you could find 1 on a dealers lot, the only thing Im not going to do is pay $5,000 to $20,000 over MSRP.I found a dealer that had cars allocated to there dealership and I ordered the car I wanted at MSRP plus my options.
