Hi, this is my first post on the forum. On 3/19 I placed my order for my fully loaded Toxic Orange Challenger 392 SRT-8, with 6 speed manual! I am so excited and looking forward to this new super-hot ride.

I only plan two big mods, Corsa exhaust and the Web Electric sequential turn signal kit. I am also ordering a bunch of other goodies, such as Lloyds mats.

The exhaust is the new for 392 Corsa Xtreme cat back system, I have been in contact with Corsa, and they will start shipping them April 4th. My performance shop has already ordered mine. The Part # is 14424.

Look forward to hearing from you guys.

Welcome.
I ordered a TO srt8 392 as well. Did you order it with stripes?
Also, welcome to the addiction of watching your car move through the build/delivery process.
How much was the exhaust? Does the sales department have a video of the exhaust in action?

Good Luck

Ok, let me gaze into my crystal ball...

There will be a little quiet waiting, then a few questions, a quick built-up of anxiety, some more questions, a lot of story telling between us friends, Huggytree will scold you for ordering at all and not buy from dealer inventory, a few more questions, an ambiguous update or two, a little quiet crying/soul searching, lots of status checking, more quiet crying, then a lot more status checking.

And through it all, we will be right here as your very own support group.

If you think it's bad now, it actually gets worse. You think, " oh, my car is built and inspected, it will ship soon." the wait is really after all that. I haven't head of anyone's car shipping in weeks. I've been sitting in KZ with a paper receipt for over a week.

rofl - that's some crystal ball Tin, I've got some commodity picks I'm going to need you to look over later. ;)

KZ for 17 days & mine FINALLY apparently caught a truck to Detroit last night (to catch a train who knows when). Hang in there. There is movement, just @ snails pace.

Also, just fyi, talked to my dealer last week - pretty small volume - said they have 23 vehicles "in transit", which is unusually high - that's probably half their lot?! Though the trucking thing may not directly affect some, it's probably causing some serious logistical shenanigans.

1st - I wanna know where the line is where they pass out the daily doses of Prozac?
2nd - How many clicks are you allowed per day to check your build status before you are considered mentally unstable (Insane) ? I think I've reached the limit!!!

I went KZ today.... DAMMIT its the JOurney... AAHHHHHHHH! 392 still has not been inspected... I swear they lost the freaking thing... The Journey is coming from Mexaco and says 4/15 at dealer. So I guess you could say I am on the wrong damn coaster. LOL

Can I add to this from my little headache with my screwed up order?
Since you ordered a T. O. (Terrel Owens? LOL) the assembly plant will send you a black in an automatic with the 430n radio, no sunroof, they will put black stripes on your car and give you the wheels that you dont want. Oh yeah, since you ordered a SRT, the will ship you an SE. Then when you refuse the car, the dealer will expect you to take it. Then they will say, what a beautiful car this is. :bigthumb:

RonsSRT. Sorry to hear you had problems with your order. What a bummer to wait that long and then find out. Is there a way to tell by the vin whether the car is an auto or stick?
