You did well. I think the small improvements in 2012 (over 2011) are enough to justify an upgrade from a 6.1L. For me, I am holding out probably a couple more years or until they announce the car's production end.

I upgraded this month from an 09 RT to the 12 SRT. I was holding out for enough improvement and the 12 finally offered it. For me the icing was the radar red interior. I love the engine over the 5.7 and while I enjoyed the nivomat suspension of the 09 I love the new active suspension. I did not care much for the new steering wheel size blocking the dash view but it is so comfortable it has grown on me. The super Harmon kardon is amazing.

I did notice couple places they went cheap, emergency brake pedal no longer comes with bright pedal requiring $12 replacement, the passenger seat no longer has lumbar adjust, windows no longer have express down on the fob, the new iPod control cable doesn't seem to carry the sound quality the old one did.

Couple upgrades I was holding out for but caved in on when I saw the red interior were cooling in the seats and memory driver seat.

Dodge royally screwed up when they decided to offer all sorts of racing stripe options.

The ORIGINAL stripes from the 2008 SRT should be the ONLY racing stripes on this car.

The fender to hood R/T stripes look silly and the 392 bumper to bumper stripes just look "homemade" and cheap.

This car is NOT a Shelby Mustang so quit trying to look like one.

Personally I hated the stripes on the SRT until 2011 as they were incomplete. Dodge didnt screw anything up they fixed the stripes. No, it is not a Mustang and it has never tried to be. It holds its own in every way.
