2020 300s 5.7 Alloy Edition
An actual 'smart charger' (Battery Tender brand is one) helps maintain the battery's health, even when vehicles are driven often. With a 'flooded battery' they help keep the plates clean. How? Alternators and standard battery chargers only charge to 80% for safety reasons. Smart Chargers have special circuitry that allows them to push the battery to 100% charge, helping clean the sulfates that collect on battery plates.What do you do with battery tender to maintain battery? Is it a car that sits or are there benefits for regularly driven cars?
I saw this one last monday at Remount Road and Wilkinson Blvd., Charlotte, NC. Driving my Ranger Lariat.Weenie pic today cause why not and it's in town

Yes. The 'Alloy Package' option was available from 2017 to 2020. Bronze colored wheels, exterior trim and interior stitching throughout.Thats a good lookin 300. Can't wait for my '23 C to arrive next spring. Are those the factory Brass Monkey wheels?
Same here. Last drove 300 about 2 weeks ago for its bi-monthly top off of 93 E0, groceries, etc. 300 is up for driving duties tomorrow (local errands) so I'll connect a charger to top off the battery. Install new battery in my spare key fob....I let it sit in the driveway.... no movement today
Can you post an image?Probably not the correct place.
Does anyone know where i can get some decent Chrysler 300 Rear Louvers?
Update: Phoned shop - they finally finished 300 this morning. They want the car to sit indoors at their shop for the rest of the day to finish 'curing'. This is a dealer detail - cleanup shop that fills their spare time with outside customer's cars. Product? Simoniz Diamond Plate Ceramic Coating.Detail Shop phoned yesterday requesting I bring 300 over this morning so they could get started on the cleanup, ceramic coat prep work and application. Should be ready for pickup by Saturday at the latest. View attachment 91758
Yeah, the same shop will wash 300 when necessary. They've already stated they use a different soap/cleaner on ceramic coated cars than the normal street trade.The car looks great, can you give us an update in say a month or two to see how it holds up?
If one buys product from a manufacturer who doesn't require a shop/person licensed by the manufacturer then a knowledgeable person could certainly do it themselves. I will strongly advise to look at one of many youtube videos on the subject to see the amount of work necessary to do the job right.Both cars look great, the black has a deeper mirror-like shine. can be a DIY project or dealer is a must?
Edit: My previous Redfire Metallic 2005 Mustang GT had the previous generation Cilajet Acrylic Coating applied by the previous owner shortly after taking delivery.Yeah, the same shop will wash 300 when necessary.

I bought a Foxwell OBD II scanner a few years back - have yet to take it out of the box....Thank you Robert, I looked into AlfaOBD sounds promising. I just ordered IOS compatible scanner : Bluetooth OBDLink MX+ I hope for a genuine scanner not Chinese copy. Thanks again
No you didn't - tell us the truth!Drove 5000 miles in mostly nice weather. That took more than a day in case you didn't do the math.
