I just re did the build with Laguna seats and no technology group. 5k less even with the over priced spoiler. Now, I see the difference in the spoilers, I do like the performance spoiler so I am going to leave it in.

I like the performance spoiler but not at the price. I left that off my options list and going to buy one for $470 swap them and maybe sell the other spoiler for $200 so that will bring your total cost down to $270 for the performance one or less if you get more for the stocker.

I felt the same way... it is overpriced as already stated.... but it just looks BETTER...

And why screw with tearing it off or worrying about it when it can just come that way :D

Each their own of course.... but I'd just prefer to order it that way... (thankfully mine came with it)

Are you planning on dragging it? I think that it's advised to buy the Redeye Widebody if you plan on doing more street driving than track driving. The tires that come with the superstock are trash for roads anyways. I'm not trying to shit on your build, I just want you to be aware that people who have driven both prefer the Redeye Widebody to the Super Stock on the road. I can tell you I prefer the laguna leather. I had the Alcantra at one time, and wasn't a big fan of the suede. The HK system is a must. I wouldn't get the performance spoiler either, it's $1000! Absolute craziness and it almost looks like the stock one.

Oh I almost forgot: Get them red belts. You can thank me later.
I have my super stock it’s a 2020 I got to from koons a little pricey but it’s a very nice cari had a 2015 hellcat it was nice but you could burn the tires off of it this new one comes out of the hole really well I’m very happy with it Rick

Agreed. Overpriced? Yes. But is it really worth the hassle of removing with fishing wire and trying not to scuff things up and installing a new one just to save a couple of hundred bucks? For some maybe but not me lol. Getting lazy in my old age I guess.

EXACTLY!!! That was my point too... I just didn't want to make it come across like doing it the other way was bad either. :D

When I ordered my 2020 Widebody RE I got the hood pins and stripes. Also you don't need the NAV the car has Apple Car Play and you can use your phone for NAV. Good luck.

My thoughts are Dodge is already banging you for a spoiler then double dipping the performance spoiler with not only no credit for the standard but tack on another $1k! It is a little inconvenient swapping them but for me it’s worth it. I gave them enough for the car they are not getting more!

Not mad at you one bit... I did the same on my Grand Prix years ago....It's all a matter of what you view as right. For me, I found a car with it on it, and still managed to pay less than MSRP... so I'm good with it :D

Your last sentence seems to be the general consensus and as it happens law

A note on the SS tires. I know the OP wants to use it as a romp around car... all well and good. Just keep in mind that on the street, drag radials are a performance negative. In almost every respect. Worse traction (due to not being heated up), road FOD sticks to them, further reducing traction, they don't corner well at all, wet driving... bad. Cold climates (under 60F or so), bad.

But, the worst is that if you don't have splash guards installed, it will be no time flat before you have pitting in your wheel flares and quarter panels from all the pebbles and what-not the DRs kick back.

My recommendation is to get a 2nd set of tires for the street and reserve the DRs for the track. Streeting DRs will compromise them and reduce their track performance. If you never plan to track it, I would sell them. This is of course assuming you're not the type of person who cleans their contact patch every time you want to romp on it. On the street, DRs are a nightmare unless you constantly prep them. It's not the car or the tire's fault really... but public roads are highly irregular and nasty. That's not what DRs are meant for, regardless of the DOT certification.

Are not a lot of cat drivers swapping on the Nitto DRs, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires for daily use on the street? I've ready nothing but negative comments about the stock rubber that comes on the "regular" HC redeyes.
