    Finally worked out how to post -
    I am now proud owner of Sublime Hellcat awaiting UK DVLA test so that I can register it for UK roads.
    my Cat will live in Surrey UK
    Here is picture of him/her outside North London dealer fresh from the port.
    Of course it is raining it is the UK
    Why else would I have waited months for the ultimate muscle car in a country where fuel is $10 a gallon and the roads are overcrowded by about 100% - but who cares at 3am through the Hindhead tunnel driving a proper V8 though! (you might want to google that one)
    I welcome any comments/recommendations and interest - I have had classic muscle up until this one - so more excited than I was aged 10 on Xmas eve.

    Any running in ( break in) tips ?
    Dodge warranty invalid outside US so having paid rather a lot more than US prices very wary of not doing something wrong - will follow manual of course but any good ideas welcome - I think oil change at 500 a must

    Welcome aboard from a fellow UK Cat owner. I would advise you follow the break in process. By the time I picked mine up, all UK registered it had almost passed the 500 mile break in. I did the first oil change at 1500 miles. I guess Clive Sutton have provided you with some form of warranty. In truth you could be lucky and not ever have an issue. I've nearly 4000 miles on mine and it has been pretty good. It through a check engine light about six weeks ago that related to a crankshaft position sensor. Seems to have fixed itself. Currently it looks like I have an issue with the bearing in the supercharger snout. I'll get it fixed and move on. Put it down to first year model run teething problems.
    Most importantly enjoy your Cat. They are a real blast to drive :D

    Congratulations on your new Hellcat ! Welcome to the forum.
    I don't know about how others refer to thier Hellcat but for me it is "she"
    Wow I didn't realize gas was so expensive in the UK ours is not that high around $2.39 a gallon. Not sure what everyone else refers to their car as but for me it is "she" probably because of the way it shows off!
    Be careful driving her on wet roads till you get accustomed to the handling of the Hellcat.

    Rhincodon, great to have you with us!! We're very excited about our brothers and sisters across the pond and wish you the very best with your new baby! She can be finicky, but worth the attention she'll get. Stay safe on the motorways and please send pictures especially if you link up with others on the main land and/or throughout the UK. Lord Hellcat is pleased I'm sure!

    All the best and some of that fine ale all around!!!

    Welcome and congratulations! The very first thing to do is take a peak and see if your cat "he/she" is in fact a he or a she. Lol!:D mine is a she. Enjoy.

    PW, hello and welcome from South Georgia, USA! Grtz on the Hellcat, it looks sinister! My Cat is male, and his name is Dante (yes, I name all of my cars, LOL!). I had my first oil change at 1500 miles, and I hope you have the same luck with your Cat as I have had with mine. Dante is my daily driver, drove him home 12/17/14, and at 4100 miles I have had no issues thus far. :)

    Welcome, Man I'm sorry to hear that is costs you $180 US to fill your CAT. If it was like that here, I'd be down to 1 day a week driving her. Have FUN!

    Thanks for that advice - I gather because of driving them to IVA test they can pick up a few miles - I will keep an eye out for the niggles you mentioned
    Clive Sutton have given me a warranty and I have dealt with them before - very good people
    Cheers
