    Running out of miles on my current lease, so it was time to make a decision. Currently driving a 2013 Charger R/T. Like the car but don't love it, and that's kind of my problem, just nothing out there I'm gonna fall in love with and want to be driving for more than a couple or few years.

    Full disclosure, I'm a Chrysler employee, not that I wouldn't consider something else, but I get better parking if I drive a Chrysler vehicle, and it's cheaper, so it is what it is. SUV's are out, as is anything with less than 4 doors, so I settled on a 2015 300s, with the V8. Could have picked one up tomorrow if I could live with the V6, but I just can't do it.

    So I'm picky, and I want what I want, and that's it. The V8's are only about 15% of the cars, and I'm stuck on red for some reason. And I wanted the dual pane panoramic sunroof. Couldn't find what I wanted closer than 2 states away, so I ordered it. Walking away from my lease 9 months early, getting into something new, with more features, and an extra 3000 miles a year, with no $ changing hands. Payment goes up $50/month, but that's chump change.

    It's definitely not a Honda lol. Thinking about getting the windows blacked out, but other than that I'll drive it for a few years and enjoy it as is. Just gotta hurry up and wait another 5 weeks. 2015_chrysler_300s.jpg

    lol no. Got a V8 in the Charger. 25 all day on the freeway. Average about 20 overall on summer gas. I do run at least 89 octane, so it's a little more expensive to fill up.

    love the fact that the "V" caddys get a 3rd pedal.

    Aside from that I'm good. There's a guy around the corner from me with a cts v and a 600hp vanity plate. thing sounds pretty badass though.

    Ahhh...I was backwards. I thought he was getting a new Charger. I missed he's getting a 300s. I'm all sorts of confused.

    Would the ATS-V be compared to an M5 and a CTS-V be compared to a M3?

    That's a nice looking 300 I like it

    Those 300s are sexy. And I don't see red that often. Looking at that pic idk why. Even sexier.

    Got it Monday night. Dealership bedazzled the trunk with their stupid stick-on that looked like a Van Halen logo. Got rid of that and gave it a good hand wash in the driveway last night.

    Dropped it off first thing this morning for the window tint. I'll take some more pics later but I love it so far. What a difference an 8 speed trans makes.
