    Hi all,
    I am new to the forum but not to the HC. Have been hanging out with a local group (Detroit area) of HC owners and am learning about these awesome cars. Have driven a Charger as well as a Challenger (6 speed). Debating whether to get a '15 or order a '16. I have noticed on several '15 Challengers that there is a hood fit issue, especially on the right front corner (when facing the car). What can anyone tell me about this - is this something that FCA will fix under warranty? Is there a recall for this? Also, where can I learn about the option packages for the '15s (e.g., 25R, 26R) and production numbers for each of the various colors? Were there more automatics or more manuals produced and what is the general experience with each of these transmissions? I'm concerned that the manual may be a handful in typical city traffic. Anyway - enough questions for now - I look forward to getting involved and thanks for all the info I'm sure I'll receive, in advance!

    Welcome,

    I noticed my hood on my low number 15 is that way, but not horrible but it does stick out if you look at it.
