Purchased mine around Thanksgiving 2012. Ended up having to have my driver's door repainted and re-striped due to factory defect in the paint but other than that I'm loving my Mopar 12. So far I have tinted the windows, tail light covers (I don't like the factory tail light housing), added Audiocontrol LCi2 to add subwoofer while retaining factory system, JL Audio 12W7AE in custom slot ported tuned to JL specs subwoofer enclosure with a JL Audio HD750/1 amplifier. Have at my house but not installed yet - Mopar cold air intake, JBA cat back exhaust with X pipe. I have my winter wheels and tires on right now but will upload pictures once I get my stock wheels back on when the weather gets better here in Chicago. Averaging about 18mpg with 70% highway driving at 70mph and 30% city. Was hoping for more - my 2010 Charger R/T road and track was averaging 21 mpg but I guess that 391 gear really adds to the pain at the pump. I'll take it though because the acceleration in this thing is worth the trade off!

does anyone with a mopar 12 have a different engine cover, i read somewhere that it was supposed to be different but mine isnt. I also saw one at amazon that was advertised as a mopar 12 and had blue letters. Anyone have this?
#54...I think there are two types of engine covers out there for the MOPAR '12, depending on which number you have in the series. I have the plain gray one with white HEMI lettering on the sides. I read about the other one somewhere, but can't remember exactly what it looks like. I think it has "MOPAR" on the top instead of "5.7L."
Just purchased a Mopar 12 #333 2 weeks ago. Traded a 2007 jeep srt8 for it. Could not pass on this deal. 300 was brand new with 60 miles on it and the dealership let it go for 33,700. They gave me 21,700 for my jeep with 85,000 miles on it. Talk about a deal! Or should I say "steal". The 300 listed for 52,000
