We now resume our regularly scheduled program already in progress ....

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to me! We just picked up this 2015 Challenger SRT from Lake Wales Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. God Bless the original owner for only putting 1300 miles on it in the two years he owned it. :grin2:

It's good to be back in a Challenger! Back in July 2016 I traded my 2011 Challenger R/T Classic for a 2016 Chevrolet SS Sedan. I loved the LS3, the bi-modal exhaust, the suspension, and the interiors. But the Chevrolet My Link system is horrendous compared to UConnect and the high-side of the transmission (4th, 5th, and 6th gears) took a dump at 3200 miles. So .... when we needed an SUV in the family to handle a growing rescued Lab/Dane (surprise) puppy, I volunteered to trade the SS on a Durango R/T and drove our '13 Charger R/T for a year.

Welcome back - and a great color to boot...

I went through a "Challenger withdrawal" in 2015:

>had differential going bad (carrier bearings) Getrag 226 (3.73 LSD) on my M6 R/T (2009) cumulative had 3 1/2 weeks back / forth to dealer and leaving for them to look over [all warranty work for diff]
>sold / traded the '09 (while on the lift waiting for replacement diff #2) while on the lift in their shop, all disassembled. 1st diff shipped had damage in transit

So with the down time of the '09 and the wait from Aug 22nd (last time I drove the '09) through Nov 20th of 2015 until my '16 SPS arrived (ordered it on 8/28) at the dealer.

Congrats and welcome back! Love the color. Just picked mine up back in September: 2015 with around 8k miles on it, could not be happier!
