    Nice choice man, congrats!

    I LOVED my 2012 392 Challenger! I actually miss that car!

    I thought it had JUST the right amount of power; it was quicker than the 6.1L I owned (2010) but not as crazy/useless as the Hellcat is in the city. It was a nice balance and for the price, was a great value.

    I had an intake, cat-back exhaust, tune and a short throw shifter on mine (6-speed) and that car was PERFECT.

    I had actually ordered a 2015 sublime 392 initially, but then cancelled it and went with the Hellcat. I knew I had to get a Hellcat to see what it was all about and 'get it out of my system', but now that I look back, the 392 would have been more than enough.

    Essentially, all I wanted was my 2012 392 Challenger with the 2015+ interior and gadgets.

    I'm glad I got to play with the 'Cat, but it is totally overkill.

    Thank you. Obviously I would like the Hellcat as well, but the price/tax increments and the regular daily inconvenience would not be worth it. The 392 is as close as I can get without going crazy. It practically looks the same, just add foglights and missing hoodscoop. I can think of myself as having ordered a Hellcat but just lost the red key. :p

    I tend to evaluate each car independently for what it is, rather than being brand loyal/distrustful. This is my first FCA product ever. Would I have bought this car if it was from Hyundai? Absolutely.

    Common purchases in my line of work and amongst my peers (let the stereotyping begin...) are the Infiniti G, BMW 3 series, MB C class, Lexus IS, and Audi A4. I figured, why not be a bit different within the same pricetag? :D

    Congrats on finely going for it. Great color btw. Perfect if you didn't want a hey look at me color. I drive around mostly unnoticed.
    Enjoy your new ride when you get it.
    Maybe see you at an event somewhere.

    Thank you. And yes, trying to blend in as much as I can is what I'm going after. Plum Crazy and B5 Blue are nice, but may attract unwanted attention.

    No snow, but we've been getting iced grounds for the past few days. I don't drive to work, but it makes for a very treacherous walk to the train station. But I'm only 10 minutes drive away from my dealer so it shouldn't be too bad. Fingers crossed.

    Got another call last night that it had arrived at the dealership. Probably aiming to pick-up early next week.

    Per the forecast, we have some snowfall next week. But hopefully it won't be too bad. I ordered mine with the all-seasons and I'm only 10 minutes drive away from the dealership, all on main roads.
