    I am currently station in Germany and might win a drawing to buy a Phatmon Black Challenger Hellcat A8 so my question is should I wait until I return to the states in 2017, hoping to be able to buy one or buy and have it shipped to Germany? Worried about the servicing since there is no dodge dealers here. Any thoughts.

    With No dealers there why would you want any Dodge?

    I'm worried that they will stop making them when I rotate back to the states. I will baby it as much as I can. I change get the basic services done.

    But you need to convert lighting to Germany's spec and then convert it back in the states and add no dealers to me just not worth it but that's me.

    Here on military orders so I don't have to convert anything. Don't have anywhere in the states to store it.

    I would wait....I was in the army for 5 years...not worth the paperwork headache. Also not dealers, these things are HUGE engines with more moving parts than anything they've seen in Germany....these hellcats will be here in three years I am sure of it! Good luck and thank you for your service!

    Storing a car in the states is very easy, there are storage places everywhere.. Or ship it and enjoy..but don't take the chance of missing out on a car

    Don't do it. It will cost you money to store and depreciate. By 2017 they will also be readily available used with low mileage for bargain price.

    First of all you have a chance its not a for sure thing, second it would be awesome to have on over seas, but probably not the smart financial thing to do. You can save your hard earned cash and get one or something like it or better in a couple years.
