If I can say anything, it's just to bite the bullet and trade up as soon as possible, you'll likely do better on the deal that way than have your current car depreciate more and trading in a year...

275/40 is the biggest you can go on the 9-inch rims. I run drag radials(Mickey Thompson E/T street SS) and yeah - it's fun with the A8 transmission! :)

You either have to have the Shaker or you don't. To me it's the ultimate non-Hellcat Challenger. I would have one but didn't want to wait as I had my car for a year before the first Shakers started...

I would say either above the HEMI badge or on the rear window. I would lean a little more towards the fenders as that seems to be the popular look right now...

The A5 has really long pulls, here's an old video from my old 300C SRT8 with a 6.1 which was a revver and would grab 2nd at 65 mph! Pretty fun for highway passing :)

Had a run with a ~2010 Mercedes E63 AMG with the N/A 6.2L V8, from about 25 mph to 100 mph. Pretty close, almost dead even, I may have pulled him slightly towards the end. :) Good times.

The Challenger look/style sets it apart though.
