    I'm talking about MUST HAVES. I have sifted through pages and pages of forum posts and I have come up with (what most people would say) things hellcat owners must get.

    For example:

    Splash guards
    Cquartz/Xpel (on high impact areas)
    Weathermats
    Tint

    Am I missing anything? What things did you get for your car that you consider must haves? This is my very first car of this magnitude and I want to do it right. Thanks in advance guys!

    You can buy insert letters on ebay but I like the paint better.

    I agree. That paint makes them look legit.

    Gas... and lots of it... LOL
    I did your big 4 above but now thinking I need to do some door sills before I get scratched. Wondering if clear bra material may work best as I did not think the Mopar sills in my Ram gave enough protection from kids getting in and out but the look is great.

    No the dreaded gas! I'm somewhat lucky as I live in Missouri so currently it's at $1.90.

    splash guards
    xpel

    both on day 1 if you can

    Nitto's for the backs (keep the fronts stock) and a dealership that wont hack your rims when changing tires

    spray wax works great on the matte black wheels

    oil change at 500 miles and then beat the F out of it a few times

    I put clear material below the sills on the Jeep for that reason. Never had a problem on the Challenger but it could not hurt.
    The sills I have for the Challenger roll over the edge. I think the 2015 sills do not, so I bought the older ones.

    Does the dealer take care of the xpel and splash guards or should I find a third party for that?
