    Never have I owned a car and been so content. Never! I love the looks, the power, the wheels, everything. I continually question myself what can I do to make it better and get nothing but crickets...I am soooo happy with this car!

    While I totally agree with op on the overall awesomeness of these incredible machines, there is always room for improvement!
    From fixing the bean counter compromises (driveshaft, lug nuts), to personal styling and functional changes, I'm seeing my baby as a continual work in progress.
    I honestly don't know if I'll ever be done, but it's only been a year now!
    I have my whole lifetime ahead of me and tend to enjoy every minute!

    Good post Hb hellcat!

    I agree that these are great cars but the "bean counters" or someone in the management team made some decisions for various reasons like a smoother or quitter ride or to save a few pennies. The drive shaft is a common new "pony or muscle" car type of driveshaft (although my 14 GT500 has a one pc carbon fiber unit) these two pc shafts are smoother and can improve ground clearance but they are weak. I also expect that there could be a little more "blower whine" inside of the car but for the sake of a "friendlier" car there appears to have been some work put into keeping the sound away from the inside of the car.

    So a few changes are coming to my car!
