STP not automatically bundled with the 20" wheels. I wanted the smallest rims and the sleeper look of sharing wheels with the V6, but I still go fast and drift so I now have to hack into my wiring to do the must-have NoESP mod.

I'm way more interested in quality issues than lack of gadgets, though. Money could be spend on better glass, plastics that don't break and warp, bulbs that last more than 2-3 years (or at least better current regulation), and a thicker, smoother paint job. I'd look at that first if it were me, as a buyer and as a company (in that order because the company follows what we want).

I think it'd be pretty cool to have that option the Ford Escapes have where you put the car in reverse and it parallel parks itself into a parking spot. The Challenger has the backup camera, now go one step further with the automatic parking.

Escapes for soccer moms; Challengers for drivers! If that ever comes, I hope they make sure it's optional.

Factory installed "Skaker" hood. This should have been available from day one!

I'd like to see different hood options, shaker, T/A or 1320 type, dealer installed.

A Road and Track package available for the R/T that essentially has the SRT suspension and brakes for the R/T.

392 as an option for the R/T once the new SC engine come out. Leave the SC version for the SRT brand.

Offer a MOPAR brand supercharger that can be installed and warrentied by dealers for the R/T's and regular SRT's.

A T/A package with engine and suspension upgrade.

2015 SRT A8
