    Picked up car today. Is great. 2 miles on it when picked it up. Great experience with dealership. Drove home 30 miles got out to some smoke. Didn't smell like fluids no puddles. A bunch of curled brown stickers on exhaust. Can't find another source. Anyone else with similar?

    Yes the exhaust will stink for 100 miles, it's a good old smell from way back;)

    Mine had a little oil smoke when it was started the 1st time. I say it is just a bit of oil what I call " the new" burning off the headers, exhaust etc. I say give it 100 miles and if you smell something then be concerned.

    Really nice man, congrats! That jazz blue is starting to grow on me. Can't help you with the smell or smoke. I did notice that it has an extremely pungent new car smell though. Huggytree told me to pay attention to that when I picked up my vehicle.

    Congrats on the Hellcat. Check your oil and give it a 100 miles to burn off all the crud on the hot parts...

    Mine had funny smells and odors for about 400 miles. That's to be expected.
