Someone Backed out and I have taken there spot

I have got an order in, in Freehold, New Jersey 10-10-14. I am 2 of 2 of their allocation, got the Build sheet and a VON number. Lime Green with Nav, black hood, they claim no more Sepia Leather is available. Anyone seen the Standard Premium Leather? I hope I won't be disappointed. This should be an upgrade from my 1971 Cuda with a 528 Hemi 5 Speed with 600 HP 600 ft/lbs of Torque. I couldn't imagine if this car can actually get traction. Great to be on the site with you all

I know, I feel duped. If they had told me that suede stuff was my ONLY choice, i wouldnt have cancelled my first order and I would be one of the people waiting for the carrier truck!

Tammie it would be funny to some extent if my hellcat and magnum's hellcat got here before yours did :p
You know, that is EXACTLY what will happen. There will end up being some issue with the red paint causing some b.s. EPA issue that also blocks radar and the cow used for the red seat was not processed humanely so it will have to be removed and replaced with faux leather and repainted with water color paints.LOL;).

Thanks, that's what I was afraid of. This suede stuff is ok but it does not hold up well with age and it spots really easy if anything wet gets on it. Real hard to keep clean because every little speck of anything wants to stick to it. I really didn't want suede but if it's suede or no cat at all I will live with it. Thought about just having the seats redone with leather inserts myself. Maybe go and rustle one of Tammie's Laguna cows!

Tammie, since you have seen the standard seats. Is the suede really leather? Or is it some kind of fake suede leather or cloth? They call it Alcantara inserts so it was leading me to believe that it is not real suede leather.
I am guessing it is fake, but I don't know. I will do a little research later.o_O

That really sucks, that you dropped your first order over this seat BS. My dealer told me yesterday that I was right on the bubble of getting one or not depending on what happens. When I put my money down on 8-27 I was the 5th pre order. I thought about ordering another one somewhere else as a back up order but I didn't, I figured this dealer would get at least 5 allotted to them because they sell a lot of car's but now I'm starting to wonder if I will get one.

The SRT 392 has the same seats. I drove one yesterday and the seats were comfy as heck! It had the suede insert. If your dealer has one of those, you can check out the seats. I thought they were really nice, but I'm not that picky, I am all about the engine and supercharger!;)
I was told by my salesman that the "standard" seats were very similar to the seats I currently have in my 12 SRT. I like my current seats.

Sounds like that Cuda will hold it's own with 600 and 600. Happy for your Hellcat new.
