    Finally pulled the trigger and got it over with. Not an Infiniti, Acura, Audi, Jaguar, or any of the others.

    2016 Dodge Charger 392 SRT with 485hp.

    Over/under on a speeding ticket in the next month?

    I'm guessing high/high. :rofl:

    Nice car. Congrats! Will you be driving it to Alaska with your case of sunscreen? If not and you need someone to watch the car while you are away, I am local.

    Put a couple of cheap antennas on the deck lid and the cops will probably leave you alone. If they still stop you - just cry.

    Nice choice - be safe. That's a lot of car right there.

    Ticket around the 4th of July, give or take a couple days.

    Would love to have something like that....Something around that 500hp range. Drove a challenger rental a few years ago, back when it was "only" around 400hp. Good times!

    Couple months ago could have leased the hellcat for around 550$ a month nothing down. I was extremely tempted.

    Nice looking car.

    It's definitely not girly or refined, so it's right up my alley. I already have the Ram, so the Dodge controls weren't too hard to suss out. There's some oddities (to me), like a gas cap button on the inside of the door, instead of just being able to open it. Bluetooth sync to my phone is nice, don't have to deal with the radio any more (my truck is oooold). So the truck has been put out to pasture for when it's needed.

    My reaction was better imagined than told. :rofl:
