    Year? New? Used? Challenger or Charger? Make sure any recalls or TSBs have been addressed. There's more I'm sure, but he beauty is in the warranty!

    You don't say what year Hellcat you are about to buy, but for 2015 there are a lot of software updates, recalls, and TSBs. For 2016, there are a few software updates depending on when the car was built. Check out the Hellcat Wiki sections for good information, the SRT Hellcat TSBs section, and read through the Active Topics for things people are talking about currently. There is a lot of information on this site. You have to do some reading for a while. Have fun and welcome to the board.

    Depends ... Is your ability to stand on the A8's accelerator with your right foot "quicker" than my ability to shift thru M6 gears with my right hand. ;)

    :cool:

    Other than they are much more fun with the A8 I think he means. Getting stuck in a hour long traffic jam with a m 6 is not fun it sucks

    I live in Germany where an hour traffic jam (stau) is a daily occurrence with many going 2, 3, and more hours long.
