Dealer called. I may be able to trade my 2005 300C SRT-8, with 11,000 miles on it even up for a new 2006 Charger SRT-8 (all options).

What would you do?

No it isn't. Chrysler uses the same interior in each LX car.

The only differences between the Chrysler and the Dodges are the gauge cluster, air vents, a little analog clock, and the plastic surround on the center stack. Nothing earth shattering. Same materials, parts, colors, suppliers, everything.

The 300 and Charger are two different styles of the same car, either way you're getting the same thing with two different looks.
I have a 300C and a Magnum R/T. There are a lot of differences between the two. The leather used on the seats, for example, is different. The 300C is festooned with standard features and options that are not on theMagnum R/T.

I agree with most of what has been said. Here's my only reason for considering the Charger SRT-8: I've been modifying the exhaust, will be modifying the intake, will be working on computer mods, etc. I have, and intend to continue to drag race the platform. It seems like the Charger is really the more appropriate version for modding and racing, while the 300C variant is more appropriate for remaining a street sleeper.

Does that change anyone's analysis?
I agree with you, JMatt. The Charger SRT-8 certainly looks the part, is slightly lighter and has the latest SRT engineering and computer tweaks from the factory.

Having said that, the differences are more style than substance, when it comes to going fast and faster.
