Most dealers never got that memo. I went through hell to get a deal done. So many dealers pulled bait & switch on price or the car itself w/wrong options, had some try to lease me a SRT 392 when I asked for Hellcat. $600+ for a SRT392 lease? Then there were the countless dealers that wanted anywhere from $800 to $1,200 per month.

Nice! Maybe my next DD. If you don't mind, what kind of deal did you get? I need some baseline numbers to take to my dealer.

Thanks!!!

Good luck, it was hell to find a deal. Many dealers played games & many more wanted outrageous prices. $679 per mo. 36 mo/15k mi. 1st month down.

This dealer has an Octane Red one left so go get it!

Just 1st month down as a drive-off? 15,000 miles is great!
Thanks!!!

It really is crazy how big these things are... i've worked on a few and they look big and somehow get bigger when you're driving them around lol.

Congratulations on the new ride!

Not a bad option for what's pretty much a poor man's M5. The cheap interior just doesn't do it for me, but I have to say it's hard to beat the $$$ to fun ratio with a Hellcat.

The Charger Hellcat is awesome. Spent a week driving one from Seattle to LA when they first came out, was simply superb. That noise!!

I prefer the brass monkey wheels too or even the 392 Daytona wheels.

I came close to picking one up on a few occasions. Congrats!
If your in the market try tuttleclick in irvine.

Dope ass car OP. I seen a demon in action lol that car is just stupid licking good.

not bad. im on the fence following break-in. I think I do it because I'm paranoid, but my oil change is 3 months late. (3k miles and been garaged for 4 months since last oil change).

Like i know damn well people doing ED don't follow break -in

I've never once done a real follow the "break in" rules on a car (or a motorcycle).

Put over 100k on many of vehicles and never had engine problems.

Of course I dont go bouncing the engine of the rev limiter every time I get in them either.

I just drive it like normal and if I feel like punching it, I do

I also noticed the wording changed on my latest Yamaha motorcylce purchase. (Bought a brand new FZ-10 last month).
It stated "Do not go over 6000rpm for extended periods for the first 600 miles".
