Yes the DVD manual is not all that and the hard cover manual in the car is for all 300's. Sent you a PM. Enjoy your ride.

Just bought #254/500

Sold my 2011 911 Carrera and bought this sweeeeeet new ride and i am LOVING IT!

I was torn between the SRT8 and this one but i loved the exclusivity of this model.

I am not sure how i feel about the blue piping on the car and may have it removed...thoughts?

I am also a bit of a mod-aholic...any one else have easy/fun mods they would recommend? I wanted to do the same blue LED lights i did on the interior of my 911 but the process seems MUCH more complicated in the 300.

Would love feedback.

Thanks all, and i am so happy to be back in a true american muscle (with a ton of class and amenities, as well).

paint

went to check out the mopar 12 i put a deposit on site unseen and the paint had like 30 blemishes on the hood and trunk. looks like acid rain or surface rust when they painted the car? they have another one at another dealerish so im going to look at that one. Hopefully the paint is good. Anyone else have paint issues? I remember when i bought my challenger some guys were complaining about the same thing. love the car but cant take it with bad paint. going friday to look at the other one. wish me luck.

Hi there! I just purchased #029/500 on Christmas Eve...early Christmas gift to myself It is a sweet ride! I feel like Hasselhoff driving around in K.I.T.T. with all the options it has! I watched this model at three dealers for 3 months and got an awesome deal.

I wasn't expecting such high RPM's at cruising speeds. They really should have used a transmission with another OD gear. I hope they develop an upgrade to give us UCONNECT Access like the 2013 models.

Have any of you installed a cold air intake yet? I am thinking about a Volant with PowerCore Filter and would like to know what others have used on their 300's.

Welcome to the family!

I TOTALLY get the Hasselhoff feeling, too...

Unfortunately, i also feel the pain at the pump with the 5 speed but i have gotten over the initial shock of only getting 14 mpg and am focusing on the many things i DO love about the car.

I am considering removing the blue piping from the side and hood and am wanting input on that front....anyone else have thoughts on that? I would love to know if you do end up installing the cold air intake and how that works for you.

I am a bit mod happy so keep me posted on anything else you tinker with and in the meantime, have fun!

Cool

Thanks for the welcome! I love that only 500 of these cars were made and I own one of them! Just rolled over 1000 miles today!

I'm not as concerned about gas prices. I was expecting the bump there with a 5.7L V8. I am more worried about the longevity of the engine at those high RPM's on the highway. There's a lot of 75mph interstate in Texas.

Cold air is the first mod I will do. I have to pace myself, but I plan to add cat-back exhaust, an SRT8 deck lid spoiler, and either powder coat to match paint or black chrome the window trim and foglight bezels to give the car a totally blacked out look.

Personally, I like the blue pinstriping. I think it is a subtle way to distinguish the MOPAR '12 from the average 300. I intend to have another clear coat added over my pinstripes so they don't peel.

Depending on how it might affect the warranty, I may look into getting a custom tune. Should be able to improve MPG and with the power gains.
