    I ordered my 2016 Challenger B5 A8 cat on 10/10 and picked it up at the dealer today pretty much one month later. Dodge certainly seems to have this allocation and production process nailed down at this point!

    I almost ended up not leaving with the car after the dealership tried to add "paint shield" to my bill for $899! We had an agreement based on MSRP plus paperwork fees and out of no where the notorious paint protectant showed up.

    After an hour and telling 5 different people that this was never going to happen, they removed the fee and I left with my car.... Classic stuff. It was pretty funny really. I felt like I was actually in the movie "Fargo" talking about the "True Coat" with William H. Macy. :rolleyes:

    With all that BS behind me, I have to say it is a beautiful car. My first impression is that the fit and finish is pretty darn good, but I need to spend a lot more time going over the car during a couple wash and wax sessions....

    From a performance standpoint I don't have much to report with only a whopping 17 miles on it. All in all, I love it and I'm glad to join the club!

    Dumb question, how do I change my vehicle type to Challenger in my profile? I just realized it says "charger".

    I think you just edit it . I haven't changed anything but I'm sure under your signature you can edit it.
