    Anyone who bought Scatpack regret not getting SRT?

    Curious if anyone wishes they spent the extra bills on the SRT. I know the rims are only 9inch on the Scat but I don't care about as I would put Hellcat reps on which are 9.5 front and 10.5 out back.

    I don't. I got mine fully loaded (with all but the 6pistons and wheels) for $38k before my trade. It's a tad lighter and other than dropping 1/2" on its own (which would make it useless here) there really isn't enough difference to make up the $$$ gap.

    I wanted a 392 and was more than happy with the Scat suspension and brakes. Couldn't justify, for me, 10k more. I like the cloth and factory wheels too.

    I got the dynamics package on my '17 Charger Scat Pack. I also put in a red ignition button, a tazer, drag radials and a hellcat hood. I miss the SRT logo but the bee is cool too. Don't miss the adjustable suspension or steering wheel
    8's N/A? Been there done that

    The wife got her Scat Charger and loves it. Neither of us are fans of all the bells and whistles that can come with the SRT, and since the power is the same, we're good.
    Scat Pack history is a base car with a big engine. Mission accomplished. She has only driver convenience package with back up camera and heated outside mirrors...

    Nice to look at but zero interest in the Hellcat. They are dirt cheap up here, seen over 15 adds today alone for 17's at dealer lots just in my area. To me the extra HP is a waist as a DD unless you are taking it to the strip.

    Nope, very happy with the Scat. As probably the poorest Scat owner in North America, I could have squeezed an SRT to buy, but I needed to keep within a very strict budget to be able to enjoy. Being 53, it was now or never for me. I dont track race or need the extra big brakes, just wish i had the Harmon Karden stereo for ****s and giggles, lol. I also didnt want the all leather seats. I actually dont like 2 things with the Scat.... 1 is the Scat name, wish it was SuperBee and how the water hangs on the back bumper all the time attracting dust and dirt. Whole car stays clean with 2 pounds of wax on her, lol, but the back always gets dirty! Argg.
    If you need the SRT extras, by all means get it, get the car that YOU are happy with, for alot us us, the Scat works for our needs. Hope that helps you )

    You can unlock the pages with a Tazer...awesomesauce!!

    For $35,000, I would've been foolish to pass mine up. It's a TON of car for the money. So, no- I don't regret anything other than not buying it sooner.

    Nah, I got the two options I wanted on my scat: the Alcantara seats and the goodies that come with them, and the Beats audio system. At 38K, it was an unbeatable deal to me.

    The only thing I wanted was the 4 doors, 6.4, A8, and green. Everything else was just optional. I went for the best value for my money. No regrets at all.
