    Sleeper Or Blinged Out? Choice to make....

    I'm looking at two Chargers, both R/T's. The '06 is steel metallic, no spoiler. If I pulled the Hemi badges and the R/T badge off of it, then the average person would think it was Grandma's car. Also looking at an '07. Inferno Red, spoiler, chrome rims - definitely obvious. Part of me likes the idea of showing off what I got. On the other hand, I like to drive aggressively and maybe I am better of in a car nobody is likely to remember.Thoughts?

    Sleeper for me. The look I went with is the sleeper with the right cues. Mostly stock exterior but widened oem wheels with wide tires, very large brakes painted silver, upgraded suspension but only slightly lowered. It has heads/cam and longtubes, but stock catback so its only a bit louder than stock.

    Both sound like nice rides. If you go with the red I'd probably swap out the Chrome rims though.

    Both look decent. The 06 has 55K on it and it's local to me. The 07 has 67k and it's a hike. I'd have to fly in and drive it back. I'm probably leaning towards the sleeper at this point.

    Both appeal to me honestly and don't let a little distance stop you, a long drive home gives you time to really get to know a vehicle.

    For me, I'd concentrate on the owner and repair/maintenance records an make my car decision based off that. The sleeper or obvious look can be achieved easily(with $$) however a car taken care off and has the PROOF........ Priceless

    I prefer the sleeper. My sxt has hub caps and no spoiler. Other than the dual exhaust, there aren't any clues to the parts I've put on.

    But I bet when they see that shift knob it's a different story
