Ol' Blue RT here with new name and new car...
As some here may know, I had a 2010 B5 blue R/T Classic that was customized and supercharged. I had put a lot into it over the years I had it; and, as many here thought I would keep it forever. As with many things in life, priorities change. With me, I was not driving it as much as I wanted to and was afraid it would get dinged ,etc in daily driver usage. So, I figured, if I bought a new one and forced myself to drive it as an only car, I would be more satisfied with what I had.
I sold it for a decent price, last month and ordered a new 2015 SRT on June 22nd. My new car arrived last Thursday. Overall, I am pleased with the new interior and the hood that separates the SRT's from the pack. Quality control sucks. The entire front end sheet-metal needs to be realigned. I have an appointment for Monday to get that done. I've lost about 40hp in trading up from my SC's RT to the SRT; but, the overall ride is much better. My new car has all the bells and whistles..A8 transmission,tech group, sunroof, Laguna leather, 8.4 Uconnect with Nav. Only option I didn't get was engine block heater and summer tires. I went with an auto due to knee issues. Old 6m was getting no longer fun to drive.

So, although I am sad to see my old friend go, the new one is slowly replacing it in my heart.

I love it and am thinking the same way as you now. Got foot issues and the M6 not as much fun any more. Haven't seen a new 15 White with the Silver stripes before and it really looks great. Congrats! :beer:

The "King did NOT die"

Some lucky guy has a sweet ride. He just moved on. I actually think he is better looking than his replacement. But, the grey stripes look so badazzz on the new "Dictator." I am looking forward to what you will do to the new MONSTER. Keep us updated.

My girlfriend hates white cars. When we went to pick up my Phantom Black SRT, there was a white R/T on the lot.
She says, Wow, it looks great in white. Go figure!
Good Luck.

Looks great and congrats.


Did you change out the coil pack/valve covers, or did it come with the 392 covers?
Mine has the 392 covers also, I assumed all the 15 SRT 392's did.
