    After my car being delivered overnight before Christmas Eve and my dealer being closed on Christmas Eve, the 2 days of suffering ended this morning when I showed up at the dealer. The first time I fired up the car in the service bay before putting it on the lift to begin PDI with the tech, the sound of the exhaust sent chills down my spine.

    You can watch every video out there, but they do ZERO justice for the insane sound this car makes. You just have to experience it in person.

    It took almost 6 months to the day from the time I put down my deposit in July to taking delivery today. Anyone who hasn't taken delivery yet and is waiting, DO NOT BAIL, IT IS WORTH IT, TRUST ME! This car is amazing, great job SRT!

    Enjoy the attached pics. :D

    Looks like we are twins!! What options did you get? Plans to wrap the hood? Check your under hood vents for wood!!! I found a block of wood in the passenger side of the forward facing scoop!!

    My B5's hood was painted flat black. I'll be wrapping the Hellcat's hood flat black, probably around Spring time when it warms up (today was in the 50s which was nice). The only option I have is the A8 transmission. :)

    Awesome and good luck with the Cat. Tsc, you don't no how many times I've thought about bailing on this car. Then I read another post like yours. And figure I'll wait it out. My only concern it seems everyone praising the car is brand loyal. I haven't had a Mopar since 1977. I usually go for the best bang for the buck. Hopefully the Hellcat is it!

    I've had US cars (Ford, Cadillac, Dodge, Mercury) and foreign cars (Honda, Lexus, Nissan, Volkswagen), no brand loyalty here -- I respect nice cars. Dodge is just hitting it out of the freaking park right now. :D

    There is nothing out there that will offer the sound, power, interior, comfort and driveability (at low or high speeds) for 60k with a warranty, period.

    Too bad dealers are at $80K for a $60K car which kinda defeats the purpose.

    RIGHT !!! Some people have saved and may only have 10k to 20k to put down with the markup it's like they never put a down payment on it :eek:

    I agree whole heartedly tsc! BTW, great looking car; in fact I haven't seen a color yet that detracts from the design of this car. Enjoy it to the max!

    I agree, I hate dealers who mark up. We've been extremely lucky to get #1 spot for both Challenger and Charger, with no markup at all. Hell, while waiting around at the dealer I got them to throw in a Hellcat hat and Hellcat polo they had in stock at the parts area. I figured its the least they could do after plopping down $62,985. :)
