after waiting almost 6 months and my ordered car w/ loose seats i finally decided to cancel today and buy else where..i didnt want to 'hope' Dodge would fix them or let an upholsterer try to fix them...

i had to drive 1.5 hours to another state

i got #605 for $200 over invoice

i kept the White, but changed from a stripped 6 speed to a loaded Automatic....it was what was available in white and i decided it worked for me...now the wife can drive it

drove it home 60 miles and its parked for a few weeks...the seats are very good...not an issue at all...i actually looked for higher #'s to get better seats...seems anything over #500 has good seats...

i havent pushed the cars power at all so far..im babying it, but the rumble is crazy cool....when they started it outside the dealership i could hear it rumble through the glass...

the wife was following behind me going home and said every guy would look at the car, but none of the women even glanced

i found it interesting how the automatic trans down shifts when your braking..you can feel it pull alittle in each gear as it goes down...kinda like your in manual mode and downshifting it yourself

the car was flawless and i consider it a work of art...its just amazing looking....no scratches or chips...

i was missing the stickers and had to work hard to get my $500 mopar bucks...they couldnt find the offer at first...they are ordering my stickers..

the only complaint is the quality of the paint...10 miles on the odometer and the paint has swirls...especially noticeable on the stripes...the DWB one i looked at last night was very bad w/ 12 miles on it....my 2 month old Chevy (dark color) barely has any swirls and its been through 8 car washes....Dodge has a paint issue i think...

i love the seats....it makes the car...glad i got the IE

the dash plaque is so small that its hard to even read what # you are....definitely should be 2x bigger

im happy with the interior styling...if they made the gauge cluster trim all stainless like the concept car i think it would greatly improve the look though...its plain, but sporty....i think the automatic shifter is boring too...it reminds me of the one on my wifes old minivan...i ordered a Mopar T shifter

Congrats guy you had a long wait! :D

I really like the way the auto downshifts when braking. I think that's why I first thought the brakes were super touchy. It's a nice feature.

Congrats Huggie! I am glad that you got your car and that you're happy with it.

As for loading your pictures, it looks like you're trying to load them to the site from your C:. You can't do that. First you have to load them to photo bucket. Once the pics are in photo bucket, you can "link" to them by html address within the tags within CFs. Not too hard. But the pics have to be in photo bucket, first.

As for the swirl marks you talk about, maybe the marks are actually the result of damp towels used to dry your car after it was washed. After a good wash and dry, your car's paint/appearance should be fine.

Have fun with that car there guy!

it takes getting used to for sure...its very noticeable...10 days away from 6 months! worth of waiting....

i couldnt believe how low the prices were...i got one price for invoice, one for $200 over and one offer for $500 over....and of course several for sticker to $5,000 over sticker...those guys dont want to sell their cars

Congrats... I've enjoyed reading your posts of anticipation... Great to hear that you've found the car of your dreams... I'll be looking for you cruising the highways of SE WI once the snow has taken a hike...

Congrats on getting your car. Which dealer did you go to? I got mine from Antioch CJD.
Antioc gave me great prices on a left over 2010, but horrible prices on the 392 IE...they were the one who wanted $5k over sticker...they said they had the DWB one sold for $3k over sticker....i was dealing w/ the internet sales lady there up until this morning....i have been dealing with her since last summer....nice lady, but when push comes to shove she didnt come through

i got it from Crystal Lake Dodge...funny thing was i was on my way to Feeny Dodge to get one for $500 over invoice...on the way we passed a white IE...we stopped to look incase we liked the options better...it was the exact same optioned car...i asked if they could beat $500 over invoice...they gave me $200 over invoice and 1.5 hours later i was driving home..i never made it to Feeny....

Also got 3 calls on my way home from dealerships...i loved telling them about my deal....every one wanted sticker price or over...it was nice to say $2400 off

i cant believe they sold this car for so cheap...i never expected it
