Welcome back, couldn't have picked more of a beauty.

I would be torn with that car myself, I like to change things, but that will ruin the future value of this rare one.

Can you share what you paid ?

I have a few plans for some mods but I will be sure to keep the stock stuff. Other than exhaust most of the mods will be small cosmetic items.

I took a look at that one online a couple of weeks ago..... the golden unicorn!

I'm curious to know what you paid for her as well.... looked like a beauty, and I think they were asking $31-32K???

Enjoy!

Hope you had a great time at the track today. I have mixed feelings about what to do with this Magnum. I can't leave any car stock for long. But I think other then a Mopar exhaust and some interior and engine bay dress up stuff, I will keep it stock. As far as racing, I think I can be talked into that.

I know is a rare one but it will be driven and mod'ed (conservatively).

The Magnum has arrived and it has a lot of cosmetic issue. 2" dent in the roof, 2 dents in the rear bumper, a dent in the front bumper which shifted the bumper, cracked paint on the right rear fender in front of the tail light and lots of touch ups spots on the front bumper. Inside looks good except for a hole in the panel below the steering wheel. I am guessing it was a switch of some type. So far everything seems to work inside. So much for the perfect, no dings, scraps or marks on the paint the salesman promised. Not sure what I am going to do right now. I need some time to calm down before I decide what to do. Not sure if I would have bought it if I had known. But for the price I paid I guess I should have expected it. Never again will I buy a car without seeing it. At least I still have 9,000 miles and 8 months of warranty. I will post some pictures soon. I guess I got my answer about the integrity of the DeVoe dealership.

I have started to bond with the new Magnum. Played with the mygig, loaded some music and took a ride one I485 to open it up a little. After a year and half in the Mini the Magnum feels much bigger then my last one. Going to a shop Friday to get an estimate for the cosmetic repairs and then I will start the negotiations with the dealership management. Not sure if I will get anywhere but they will know about the way their salesman operates. Going to the Dodge dealer next week to have them go over the mechanical stuff to make sure all is good there.
Let me know when the next get together is and I will try to attend.

Don - which dealer are you taking it to? Stateline Dodge has a Hemi specialist, Viper Dan, that is one of the only techs I'll let touch my car. He does lots of high hp modded Jeeps and LX's.......

Yep, Don, Stateline is a really nice dealership.

Take it there.

Congrats on the '08 MSRT. Like you, I recognize its a rare breed but I can't help myself from enjoying driving the car on a daily basis. Its a big plus knowing you won't see another one like it on the road.

I normally do not see a lot of Magnums to begin with but I don't think I have seen any 08's. It will be my daily driver also. I have already started with the mods (took off the Magnum letters and Rams head off the rear hatch). I promised the wife, no mods that cost money until I sell my Mini.

Only mods I've done are K&N CAI and Corsa exhaust. Factory exhaust is pretty lame. Good luck selling the Mini.

Still working with dealer. I have not done any work to the Magnum yet. I still have a Mini to sell before I start doing any real work on the Magnum. But I am enjoying the Magnum.
