    Saturday is the day I finally pick up my Hellcat Challenger, from a dealer in MI a few hours away!
    It's been a long wait, a bumpy ride, optimism, disappointments, anxiety, elation, and now it's finally here!

    I was on the Bob F von hell ride when I finally threw in the towel with him in Feb, called numerous dealers,and finally found mine in D1 thanks to a lead from DeputyDog, in exactly the configuration I wanted. Torred,auto,ruby red seats.

    After 2 months in D1 purgatory, it was finally built on the 20th of April, and delivered last Monday, but can't pick it up till tomorrow due to work.

    I will be there bright and early, meeting my salesman who was kind enough to save all documents for me and has kept me in the loop these past couple months.

    Now, it better not f***ing rain! :(

    Quick question, as an out of state buyer, does anyone know how sales tax works for MI?
    I bought a car in Ohio once, and I paid sales tax here in Illinois when I got it titled and plated here.
    Is MI different, because dealer told me I pay MI tax then Illinois for the difference?

    Just don't want any surprises on a joyous day!

    Pics are from my salesman, mine will be posted tomorrow.

    Yes you need to pay MI sales tax. What happens in IL is beyond me for tax

    Some out of state dealers will give you a temporary 15-30 day tag and you will pay taxes and license fees when you register at your local DMV . Two dealers from out of state said this is how they do it.

    Nice, have a great day getting that car.

    I think you can pay the tax to the state that licensed the car, I don't think you have to pay it twice. but you will find out and can give us all the update. ( along with photos )

    Congrats on the delivery of your Cat! I have a similar Bob F von hell ride story that turned out to be successful. Hoping for my delivery some time in June. As far as taxes and my understanding, one is only supposed to pay sales tax in the state you title and tax your vehicle in. You can't get double taxed that I'm aware of, and I'm sure your state of residence would not be okay with MI getting their taxes unless MI sends it to your state of residence.
    Enjoy your Hell Baby to the max!

    Congrats! Remember tonight, breath in, breath out and try to get some sleep tonight.

    I bought a couple of cars from MO and they tried to charge me what the tax% for IL was. They were a little low so our great Sec of ST sent me a bill for the difference.
