Differences between 2010 and 2012 Challenger RT

I am looking to get a Challenger RT with plans to do a bunch of mods to. Supercharger, exhaust, suspension, etc. I am looking at a 2010 for $26500 with 23k miles and a brand new 2012 for $28500. Are there any major differences between the 2 years besides the computer?

I would imagine I could get the price lower on the 2010 when I show them the price on the '12 but it would be nice to have a brand new one. Miss that new car smell.

Thanks for any advice you can give

The other item is the changes to the suspension:

*negative camber on front suspension
*more negative camber on rear
*changes in spring / shock tuning
*faster steering ratio on '11+ (electro-hydr. p/s on R/T)

the visual changes:
*steering wheel (smaller diameter, 3 spoke design, thicker rim)
*nose badge deleted
*Keyless Enter & Go door handles, trunk ('11+)

For the $2k in price as much as I love my 2010 I'd say 2012 with a warranty is the way to go. Not sure how the supercharger idea will affect the warranty though?

I think it will kill the power train warranty but hopefully not affect anything else. Either place is gonna rob me on my trade in I think. We'll see what happens.

go wioth the 12. the engine is also different with the VVT. most of the cams out right now are only 08-10 bc of this. However with the new release of CMR tuning, we should see the market increase support for the 11+ regarding CAMS and SCs.

If the ethanol is the light end of the fuel, maybe we could have a metal pot sitting over an open fire, and pour gas in the pot and let the fire heat it up until the ethanol cooks off

Until recently full CMR tuning was not available. This could be why yes?
