What was the 'must-have' options when you bought your Challenger (or when you are buying one)?

I got none other than the "mandatory-option" sponsored by Uncle Sam called Gas Guzzler Tax. To me, the base Scat Pack is already loaded. A nice Uconnect system, Performance Page (that I rarely use), and a back-up camera. Seats maybe, but I am opposed to leather seats from a humane viewpoint. I wish Chrysler offered leatherette like BMW. Anyway, I have the least expensive configuration possible of the 2019 Scat Pack 馃槀 馃槀

Oh, and color is not an option by definition, but an original HIP color was a must-have for me. For that reason and on account of having done Go Mango already, my choice was between Sublime and Plum Crazy.

Had to have some sort of leather...I was never a fan of hounds tooth.
At the time Octane red was a must have as well. As you can see by my profile pic, that "must have" went by the waste side. 馃槅

Came from a bone base v6 camaro so I had no options I really wanted. Not a fan of leather (gets too hot) and didn't want to pay for things I didn't use. The base uconnect is more than enough for me. Performance handling group would've been cool though

that being said - you could offer me a Challenger $15k -20k discount on a Black or Destroyer Gray / A8 / houndstooth cloth interior / base audio and my answer all day would "no thanks"

Ordered a '16 B5 SP "stripper."

A8, WRT wheels, and Modern RT hood stripe. All that I wanted, and still perfectly happy with it.

Those are some nice looking seats! We have the SRT alcantara ones and I like them, but I think that the red/black leather combo that you have looks better.

As far as must haves when we bought Ruby. Here goes:

Sunroof
6 piston Brembo brakes (not for the stopping power, but just because I Really like the garbage can lid size of them.
Hyper black rims (I believe are the best looking factory wheels ever made. I just wish that Dodge made them wider).
My Wife wanted the silver stripes and I wanted to install real carbon fiber stripes on her and guess what..............We have silver stripes. :D

I like them, but the real carbon would've been different and quite cool looking in my opinion!

I agree

The '12 - '13 R/T Classic and '12 - '14 Rallye Redline (SXT) had seats that had red facings with leather and then the '15 - '16 Shakers had that option as well.

I was fortunate that I ordered the '16 since that was the last year for those leather seats. It was Alcantara / leather trim after that.

The number one thing I've got to have is a color that stands out from the crowd. My 1st Challenger was a 2010 6 spd R/T Classic Plum Crazy with white Katzkin leather interior. In 2011, the 392 SRT came about so I ordered another 6 spd in Green With Envy. When the 8 spd came out, in 2016 I decided to give that a try so I ordered an SRT in Go Mango with Sepia leather. So I went with three different first run colors that I'd never seen in person, but I'm happy I did. Aside from color, I'd have to say performance is of equal importance on my list.
