Great job man. It's looks bad a$$.

Should look into a Go Wing, I think it would go perfectly with your look!

2010 challenger SE w/Borla quad-port cat back exhaust system,Mopar cool air intake, Mopar T-handle shifter, Mopar chrome door-guards,chrome fuel door, front and rear body mods, and in the process of finding ways to further increase performance. And I love my v6, to all the haters who are so fascinated with V8s, let's compare our gas prices and you decide whether or not the extra bit of HPs are worth it

I agree that I have dressed mine up to resemble a 1970 R/T, but I dress all my vehicles to distinguish them from anything else on the road. I don't like the way any Challenger looks coming from the factory. If I had a SRT, please believe it would be dressed differently than it came from stock. And just my honest opinion, I would not spend the money that it costs to purchase a new SRT. I'd rather spend that type of money on a Caddy or a Benz. An R/T Classic is the top of the chain for me.

Lastly, I completely disagree with the notion that with all the money spent modding you could have just bought an R/T the way you wanted it. I would have had to spend $6000 more than I could have afforded to get an R/T the way may Rallye came. And I have not spent anywhere close to that amount dressing it up.
I like your mindset. I have yet to see a challenger that looks like mine. even if it is an SE.

The mods on this forum should do a better job on shutting down threads like this. We can all go on about this till we are blue on the finger tips typing away. But I will throw in my .2 on this. Any person on here that talks down on someone who has an SE/SXT is a complete jerk. I've owned a BMW, 350Z, and EVO just to name a few, but had to go into an SE due to other financial obligations. When money permitted I upgraded my SE since I am a car enthusiast and I enjoy to have any car I own Challenger or not modded.

And Huggy can we please stop hearing your car was 50K... In the big scheme of things 50K isnt jack...I have an Uncle who has a new Porsche GT3 and a new Z06 sitting in his million dollar home in Southern California...Theres always someone bigger and badder than all of us, so please God take a humble pill once in awhile.

And I still think the mods should close this thread please.

Re: SE and SXT owners modding then upgrading to an RT

Seriously? I appreciate every owner's opinion but I don't have to explain what I want my car to look like. Mods are just that modifications to OEM. All owners mod and forums should inspire and offer a platform to share ideas, regardless of model. Let's quit *****ing and move on, if you need drama, join facebook!

The beauty of a forum is that you can unsubscribe from a thread or you can just not look at it. People think that they have to read every post once they start looking at a tread. You have to learn to ignore the posts that are not interesting to you or offend you. There are a lot of threads on here I just don't look at. When I see a thread go sour, I just go to thread tools and unsubscribe. Simple as that. Hijacking is one thing, varying on a topic is another. This forum is not a pristine history of specific topics, it is just a lot of conversation and conversations tend to stray from the original topic. JMO on this forum.

WOW....I had to chime in on this one, this may be a different twist.... I just bought an SXT 2012 in Header Orange. Honestly, (I say this with with some humility) I won the lottery a few years ago, so I can afford any car I want. I bought THIS car becuase I wanted this color, and they do not offer it for 2013. so I searched the country to find this car. and it was love at first sight. Sure I could have ordered an SRT8 loaded, but part of the reason I have money is I don't drive to gas station to gas station every other day. The power on this car is perfect for me, I dont drag race, and around my parts, you can't go over 35-50 amost anywhere. If I want to put 440 six pack badges on car saying 600HP, I'll do it, why? because its my car and whoever says I shouldn't do this or that is going beyond their boundry. But I think I'll leave it as is (for now) ..I know other who upbadged and I think good for them if they like it. here are some pics, this color is drop dead gorgeous

One thing I've learned from sites like these: You never know how old the people commenting are. People of all ages post here. Oftentimes, the silly or rude comments come from adolescents. Or from me when I drink too much.
