Over the weekend I traded in my 2016 SXT plus and got a 2016 R/T plus Shaker (with less miles on it, even). Now this is livin'. The only thing missing, which I didn't even realize until the next morning, is that it doesn't have remote start. It didn't occur to me that a car this new, and a Plus version to boot, wouldn't have such a common feature. I called the dealership just to see what it would cost to put one in and was quoted $785. Is remote start an add on on top of whatever other packages the car may have been ordered with? I love the car and it certainly doesn't take away from my enjoyment. It just caught me off guard.

All you need right here. It even works with the factory key. Just press the lock button 3 times and boom! Start up. I have it on my 2015 R/T.

I actually took mine to a shop to get it installed but even then way cheaper than dodge. All together I'd say about $300 is what I paid. It's plug and play so I wouldn't think it's that hard, just dealing with anything electric on my car, I don't like to touch.

Nice looking car! Being a '16 (pre-active exhaust) do you have any plans for your exhaust? Cat back? Reso delete?

I think that's going to go on my long list. I just started looking into it. What's the best option in your opinion? I have some minor things to take care of first, but exhaust is on the horizon.

Depends on how much you're willing to spend. I'm an advocate of stainless cat back systems with mandrel bends. On a budget, the Flowaster systems are the best buy. I got a new Flowmaster American Thunder kit for my 2013 R/T for $600 and paid mYBE $120/130 to have it installed at a local exhaust shop. Little bit of drone at low speeds (around 20mph) but otherwise great.

Is your car a manual or an automatic? Only the autos come with remote-start. I have never seen a "Plus" (2015-and up) model that did not have auto-start except for the manual-6 speeds.

It is crazy but you need the Driver Convenience Group to get remote start and why DCG is not standard on the R/T Plus I do not know but it isn't, it's still a $1,095 option.

Included with DCG ..

-- Remote Start System
-- Blind Spot & Cross Path Detection
-- Power Multi-Function Foldaway Mirrors
-- High Intensity Discharge Headlamps

Yeah, I don't have the blind spot sensor either.

It's the A8. Looks like it's missing the package that includes remote start.
