Upgrade all the interior panels, do not deviate too much from the current design this is a muscle car, we don't need swoopy lines, if you want swoopy, buy a Hyundai.
Add the new Nav pack out of the 300 SRT and Charger SRT, add the real Carbon Fibre trim from the 300 SRT. Make all surfaces "leather wrapped" as an option (like on the Vette) for those of us that want to spend another 3-5K bundle it with the Nav and Carbon Fibre package. Baseball stitch on all the leather surfaces, color key the stitching.
Get rid of the Electroluminescent technology and switch to LED for all items and use RGB LED's and give us the option to change ALL interior illumination if we so choose.
Give us Auto Up windows... Illuminate the push to start button and for Pete's sakes.. Put a dang light in the glove box... REALLY!!!
Better soft touch materials. The interior should be more retro looking but more luxurious than a Mustang given the price difference. Chrome surrounds around the vents. Ambient lighting to match your high impact color and guages to match, kind of like the GTO had a few years ago. I know they could easily do the new Charger interior, but I hope they don't put the disproportionately large touch screen in it. Biggest option though, MORE colors besides slate gray!
The large touch screen can easily be pulled off with the nice straight lines of the Challenger dash (and look GOOD) it does NOT look good when you surround it with swoopy trim (300 SRT, Charger SRT) IMHO.
Auto up windows and...........................thats it. Keep it as simple as possible. I actually like the interior as it is. If you want the truth, I dont even like the soft touch crap. In about 5-10 years that crap will be torn apart anyway. I like the hard plastic stuff that lasts forever like I had in my 2007 SRT8 Charger. But hey, thats just me.
2012 GT500 with some mods..................
Anyone ever drive a gt500? The steering wheel is easily the best wheel I have ever had the privelage of driving on besides aftermarket wheels of course. If your not going to do that, I agree with "Auto up windows, memory seats, and glovebox lighting."
