    I have read some posts about issues or concerns when taking delivery of Hellcats. Dings, scratches, bad tires, etc. What are some recommended things to look for before signing on the dotted line? I'm supposed to take delivery on 3/17.

    My wheel was nicked from what I believe was a strap they used to secure the car for shipment. Additionally the fender had some superficial scratches that needed a buff to remove. I told the dealer I want the wheel perfect or replaced. So, I would do a good look over on the paint. Bring a flash light. Second, check the wheels closely to ensure nothing was scratched. Hope this helps.

    Wheels are a big one. The powder coat doesn't seem to be very thick. Plus the above recommendations. Congrats and enjoy your drive home!:)

    Look in the trunk under the trunk mat and ensure all the areas are sealed (similar to caulking) from the outside elements. I know I saw that by one forum member early on. God knows where the photos are in whatever thread. But its here some where.

    Front spoiler on mine, they are replacing it and not the best paint, but I'm not going to let them mess with the paint yet.
