The lag was probably because you were in a parkinglot not being able to fully let the beast open up....

What numbers did the sales guy give you? Trade-in amount, approx what do you owe on the R/T, price of the MSRT8...? $700 sounds good, but we need more specifics to know if it is really good or not.

Good luck.

Same thing happened to me last Sat. Our local dealer had an inferno red MSRT8 too. It was the only car in the showroom 38,900. emp. price. I had to get the hell outta there quick, I'm too impulsive. Sure was sweet though.

It sounds close enough that the dealer won't come and get it back in the middle of the night;)

If you like it and you feel it is a fair deal and you can afford it, take it home. The CAI will work, but you'll have to piece together the beather vent hose... the 5.7 one won't line straight up with the 6.1. The throttlebodys are the same size.

If the numbers are $39,000+$1000 and your $25,000 then my opinion is to up grade the R/T for less money to equal/exceed the SRT. Less than $6000 will get you there on motor. Just my opinion though.

Yeah, but the brembo's and 20's are worth a few grand on their own. Add the nicer seats, the stiffer suspension... the SRT-8 would be worth it. I'm paying $599.31 on my R/T right now... so an extra $100/month seems worth it to me ('cept I don't have another hundred laying around :p)

$700 per month purchase or lease?
Purchase, I say the #s don't add up.....
Lease...... watch the miles, and, is that $700 PLUS TAX, or INCLUDING TAX?

Sounds like alot of monthly payment- Tell the sales to go back and call you at $625, theres not people lining up for a 12,13 mpg vehicle,the insurance is not much more they see v8 and value of car. There is alot of diffrence in a rt and srt8 to go aftermarket your looking at 13-14,000 didnot include interior or hood lid-srt8 stock exhaust has larger tubes. The lags there you have to buy a hand held computer and get someone who can redial the engine and trannie or learn how to hand shift. Get the dealer to start calling you, they can work down your payment good luck
