    Hello all, new member here waiting to purchase a HC. I'm currently residing in San Diego, CA. I've been here for a year now and can't complain not one bit. The weather is amazing and just the overall atmosphere.

    As the title states I am in search of a Challenger HC specifically. I'm in a bit of a situation with Dodge buying back one of my vehicles. It's at a local dealer for its 6th repair attempt and they can't figure the issue out. This has been happening since the beginning of the year. So now since that process is rolling I'm now looking for a replacement and low and behold, I want a Hellcat, lol. It's unfortunate this is happening honestly. But regardless I'm choosing to stick by the brand. You think requesting invoice pricing or employee pricing on a future Dodge vehicle is a stretch considering what's happening? That idea crossed my mind!

    I've owned roughly 8-9 Dodge/Chrysler cars from the '05 Neon SRT-4, '09 Challenger R/T, '12 Charger R/T, '10 Challenger SRT-8. I traded in my '12 Camaro ZL1 for a '12 300 SRT8 which I currently have as my DD. A '02 Z06 also shares a garage space with the 300. I love all brands but I always end up going back to Dodge/Chrysler.

    I will say I'm truly amazed on what Dodge has done with the Challenger. I had halos installed on my SRT8 from AAC down in New Orleans back in 2011 and fast forward to present day and now they come stock. So the Hellcat definitely appeals to me with the overall exterior enhancements and now overall performance.

    I've already learned an abundance amount of information about the car here and looking forward to giving some knowledge as well.

    good luck on finding one for MSRP this late in the race, might want to go ahead and find a dealer now for MY16 with high enough national sales to get Golden Wonka Allocation tickets

    If you are willing to buy from NC or AZ I can put you in touch with two dealers who only do MSRP. Can't say if they can get you a 15 but they could set you up for your 16. PM me.

    PM sent.

    Thanks. Coming from a '12 ZL1 to the 300 I will say it's a complete different experience, lol. I needed some extra room but didn't want to sacrifice the speed with a drastic change. The 300 has the best of both worlds while maintaining creature comforts. Mine is fully loaded and the deal I got I couldn't say no.

    After driving the Charger SRT8 at the SRT experience this year I will say the Charger feels much more responsive with an advantage going to the Charger. Around the track it just felt quicker/responsive with better handling.

    Thanks,I wrestled with the decision over which to buy... I never really had the chance to drive the 300 srt, it has a bada$$ stance though.

    What are are you looking for? Manual? Auto? Leather? Color?

    Welcome! Will keep my eyes open. Have seen a couple manuals.

    Yes, I love mine. I'll post some pics when I get my APR splitter installed which should be soon.

    I made a seperate post for this in the other section. But I will say I'm looking for A8's in both color choices.

    Bright white: black/ruby red interior, red seat belts, black hood, 8.4an NAV
    Torred: red seat belts, black hood, 8.4an NAV.

    I stopped by Rancho Auto in San Diego. They have a sublime challenger and an allocation which they want a $20,000 adm. The search continues...
