Well I have been a member since 2-18-2011, great site and has provided me a lot of knowledge for making my decision, plus some entertainment.

I took nearly 3 years of visiting the Dodge website, building a car, searching inventory, visiting dealers to get to this order stage.

The Shaker option was what got me to jump. The look, the equipment, the wheels and especially the contrasting interior stitching did the trick. Absolutely perfect for me, all I need. So heres what my dealer ordered me yesterday (confirmed and order accepted):

Challenger Shaker - Header Orange
6-speed manual
Uconnect 730
Stripe delete
High Intensity headlights
Sound group II
Switched to All Season tires vs. 3 season F1 tires

:):)

You're a patient person, almost three years to give in, lol.
Sounds like it's going to be a great looking car, any timeline given for delivery?
Good luck.

The tuff part was, do I want this as a daily driver or play toy. I have a 2009 VW Jetta TDI and its 46 mpg highway and 40 to town and back. The decision was lengthly, I can park my Jetta anywhere and not worry to much since its only transportation to me. This Challenger will be my babe and she'll be handled and watched over more closely. Uh - the joy of pampering a car will be back. Days not scene since I sold my 69 Camaro in 2002.

Since the Jetta was paid for I decided to keep it - the 46 mpg makes life sweet. So when I want to play and enjoy a drive thats where the Challenger will come in. With that finally decided the search got serious.

I'll get the delivery schedule in the next few days. I'm assuming 8-10 weeks. No problem.

Ya know, once you get behind the wheel, feel that seat hug you and experience the power the hemi has... you won't want to drive anything else! haha... You're lucky to live where its warm most all of the year.. I can only imagine taking it out on a desert road and really opening it up... damn.... Challengers ARE head turners no matter where you go.. I've had people actually follow me into a gas station just to see my 09 R/T up close. Where I am, there are maybe 5 total in the area. It's like an unwritten rule that we all wave and give the thumbs up whenever we see eachother driving.. none of know who we are tho.. And if we're on the highway, we run side by side.. it's something to see.. feel the pride!

My Shaker was ordered yesterday too... I was told 6 to 8 weeks.. can't come soon enough! I believe there are 3 of us here that ordered the Shaker.. I may be wrong..

Last couple days have been like a kid in a candy store not knowing how much candy I can get : -)

My order (POC) Status was BA - Order Pending.

Dealer just send me the revised POC and order is accepted and now Status is C - Tentative Schedule

Now I know I'm in - come on beer thirty, sure going to taste sweet tonight.

I know we have couple members here that work in Ontario at the plant, send me a private email so we can chat.

:cheers::cheers::cheers:

You've gotta have Brampton Builder sign yours...!

PM him when you have your VIN and the D1 "Gateline status" date so you can alert him (if he's working inspections that day)...

Reno, Nevada

Thanks for the reminder I just added that to my profile.

:guiness:
I drove my Belle and my wife to Reno from Portland for Hot August Nights. I was waiting in line for the valet at Circus Circus, and was parked next to a sweet 55 Chevy Nomad.

This dude comes strolling out from the casino with a babe on his arm, and stops next to my car, checking it out. He slides down his shades and says, "man, your car is PIMP!". Put a smile on my face for sure! :guiness:

My dealer always makes buying and owning a vehicle a great experience.

Ordered 1/7

1/13 - Email from Dodge and order visible online Status C
1/14 - Dealer emailed VIN assigned - online Status D

As Steve Christian GM at Carson City Dodge stated in email - we should see ship status in couple weeks or so.
