    Had a 2015 Z06, just got an ivory cat with black hood and red interior. This one stickered at $73,465 and I bought for $67k from an older man I know and it had 890 miles on it.

    I work for an auto group so I called two of our Dodge stores and they told me since I'm an employee, they'll sell me one at sticker... I can't/won't pay sticker so I went used. The guy is pretty anal and broke it in with Joe Gibbs break in oil etc so hopefully I made the right decision. Thoughts?

    Oh yeah and then I bought his extra set of last years forged SRT wheels that you see in my profile pic with a set of Pirelli winter tires for an extra $1200. So far I put in an installed radar detector w/ laser diffuser and a set of Mickey Thompson 305's on the back.

    If it is an A8 you got a fairly good deal....not sure about the break in oil but guess it wouldn't harm anything. You said he is an older man so he probably still thinks old school about break in..

    Yeah he said it sealed whatever better and gives them more power. This was his third hellcat. He has bought 43 Chevrolet's from us and counting. He has a Z06 on order.

    A very nice car - congrats. Now on the break in oil, it has a lot of zinc which isn't good for the cat converters and it may not be syn--as what came in the car. I still don't think you'll have any problems. Enjoy the car.

    Thanks everybody! He said he only used the break in oil for the first 300 miles. Then he told me the only place in town to get the Pen Platinum whatever...

    Yeah - buddy was obviously old school. Since only 300 miles there won't be any issues thou I'm sure

    Curious - I always like hearing comparisons from guys that own both a Z06 & Hellcat...do tell :)

    This car seems faster... it just keeps going and going. The Z06 definitely felt more stable at high speeds and handled a lot better though.

    I would say you got a hell of a deal!!! I have the same car as you but no black hood and had to drive 500 miles one way to get it at MSRP. If I had found this deal back then I would have jumped on it with both feet and give a yahoo!!

    I don't car for the black wheels so got the deal to swap for a set of the SRT hyper black wheels. Like them much better. Also traded with a guy for his chrome gas cap and he got my black one. I'm old school and like shiny I guess. LOL
