I ordered this car in Oct and finally got it delivered yesterday. I have the upgraded 226mm axels, limited slip diff, mopar interior package, premium sound, and the 5 speed automatic with paddle shifters. I am a disabled vet so i need automatic, plus its fun. I would have gotten the shaker in this color but i already had this rodered when it was released. I have not seen another one like it here in Germany, i love watching guys in porches break their neck looking at my car. first comes mopar stage 2 coil overs (on order) and the next will be the scat packs when released. i will be doing all 3.

Ausgezeichnet! I had my '71 Camaro in Deutschland a few decades ago, what a blast I had. Plus that leaded gas at the Esso stations coupled with a strong dollar vs the Deutsch Mark. The Germans do love the Ami Straßenkreuzer when they see them!

Thanks for your service! I ordered a 2014 SRT8 in PCP through military sales in Wiesbaden. It was manufactured on DEC10, 2013. I left post before receiving, had my friends take delivery and forward it to new post in Bangkok, Thailand. So I can totally relate to the neck bending. I wonder if it's the on SRT8 let alone PCP in Thailand. When I drive it nearly causes accidents as Thais stare at it with the biggest smiles and turn to watch it in motion. They do this while standing still or driving a car or motorcycle. I've even heard a few utter "Transformer." It has less than 800 miles on it and everytime I drive it there's a high risk of n accident as Thais have no rules on the road. Another amazing fact is Dodge International Service has informed that if I need warranty service I would have to pay all cost to have a representative fom Singapore fly ouy out; even to perform a firmware upgrade. Needless to say I don't drive it much.

Please enjoy your RT to the fullest and be safe on the road. You know the Germans love cutting you off at high speeds only to take an exit with no one behind you for miles...A few pics on delivery and at home in the carport.

Beautiful car! thanks for the little story! loved it,

Total Bullshit how you serve our country and dodge can't even fly out a rep to perform a FW flash on the car if needed. seriously.... we are only paying 30-40K for these cars, how much is 1 plane ticket? b.s......

Thank you for your service. And the OP thank you for your service!

Thank you all for the responses. Please let me clear something up. I am not in the military and I'm sorry if I mislead anyone. I'm a State Department foreign service specialist and by definition serve overseas. I should have made that clear in my original reply and at the time didn't go into detail. My deepest apologies! I am lucky enough as a "Diplomat" to purchase through diplomatic and military sales.

I was attempting to share the same type of responses offered by the locals cited by Hoot, the unexpected disappointment encountered by Dodge's response to a service query and of course to acknowledge the service of a deserving patriot enjoying his vehicle. I feel very bad over the confusion I caused and have nothing but the deepest respect for all military personnel. The first and last people I see in the embassies are the marines - and I can tell you it's always very reassuring to know there's a marine detachment in the building!
