PostSubject: I'm Back!   December 6th 2015, 2:48 pm

I have gone full circle and now back in to what was my original Modern Mopar. Picked this 15 Charger RT with RT package up yesterday while getting an oil change for my Jeep. Traded in Tammy's 2012 Jeep and she took over my 15. Was cruising past Feeney early last week and saw this sitting on their lot. Been negotiating back and forth via text message all week, yes you read that right, pretty much negotiated the price of car via text, lmfao. I honestly didn't think it would happen as we were a few thousand apart via texting. So as I said, Saturday went for an oil change, saw my sales guy I usually deal with, told him let's make this happen. Went back and forth for a hour or so, and wound up paying $500 more than what I hoped, but still got him down the few thousand we were apart during the week. Car is used and listed for just under $42k new 5 months ago. Guy that owned it only put 1900 miles on it in 5 months. Never thought I would want to get back in to a car, but I rented a 15 Chally RT while I was in San Francisco and after having that for 4 days, I was hooked, lol. Was going to wait till spring but didn't want to pass this one up because B5 is my favorite color and didn't feel I would find a used one like this at this price if I waited, snooze u lose and I didn't want to snooze, lol. So hopefully it will drive okay in the snow, as I don't have a beater to drive for the winter. Regal might go on back burner for now, as I want to do a Hellcat or Scat hood, lowering springs, rims, and some other cosmetic shit. Might do the roof in gloss black to match front fascia.

Thanks everyone, and do me a favor. Keep your eyes and ears open for a Scat hood. Figuring someone is more than likely to buy a Hellcat hood and want to dump their Scat hood. Or at least its wishful thinking.

That is a great looking ride. Was wondering when you were gonna get a Cubby blue car. B5 is my favorite color too. Wish they had it in '13.

As far as driving it in the winter, just get yourself a set of Blizzaks and you'll be fine. Don't wait too long to do it though, because they do sell out.

Pretty sure they are for the Nav which I don't quite get. Aftermarket head units have a small antenna for the Nav

Tints are done
Hood
Lowering springs (I have a feeling it might be lowered already, unless these just feel like they are low)
Rims
Some small misc odds and ends

I'm a huge fan of the 8 speed and have been since my 14 SRT. If u lived closer I would let you take it for a couple of hours to see how you like it.

Belated congrats, saw you posting on LX had to see what you got!

Big fan of that color and of course I've got to love the R/T R&T cars Smile For the seats alone (although I know they have lots of better doo dads these days like the 3.06 rear and extra performance pages etc. along with the bigger roll bar up front etc.)

Every time I see a '15 with the black gloss bumper I think it looks sharp, I want one of these '15 R/T R&Ts in like 2-3 years so you can sell me yours when you get the '18 Track Hawk Smile
