Hi everyone, I have been following the forum eagerly for months, and getting great laughs from you all, you've helped me bear the wait... well here goes, I am with the US forces in Germany, and I just got word that my SS srt-8 (I hear only the 2nd one in Europe) is in Baltimore about to be shipped.... yeeha hello autobahn with the beast. I noe drive a Wetterauer teaked Audi A6 biturbo, and I sure hope it will be dwarfed by the 425hp... Should be another month at the most :banana: will invite anyone traveling to Europe for a spin....

I hear the Europeans are drooling over the 300s and customizing the sh*t out of them.
Enjoy and burn up some Bimmers in the process!

Congrats, and you will amaze the crap out of people cruising the autobahn in a luxury car going 173 ungoverned miles per hour! :eek:

Fully expect a crowd of SRT-4s to be all around you:) Good buncha guys over there, fully expect them to want to see the car close up. So when you d get approached, dont be surprised:) They also have a good buddy whos a german Chrysler mechanic, his names Manni, good guy whos a super gearhead and loves SRT stuff.

Of course, on the 'bahn, you'll outrun them.
And of course, you should get a camera and a GPS to make some top speed runs, if you want to go that fast. I know some folks dont :biggrin:
Why the camera and GPS? Becuase of course folks will call you all sorts of names if you dont have proof. We'll trust you of course, but you have no idea how fast this kind of thing spreads.

Do the US forces get gas coupons these days? We used to get rationed gas coupons which were quite generous when I was in the Cdn forces, mind you that was a million years ago. I believe they were honoured at all BP stations in Germany.

Yes we still do, though it's mostly Esso that honors them, and you can still fill up on base- and the price is reasonable, about $2.60 a gallon right now- no matter- I've already gone 162mph in the Audi (10 min from my home!) and I do intend to better that.... And to get you all in overdrool mode, did you know that the Nurburgring was open to the general public on weekends... for only 15 euros a lap........................ (a 22Km lap mind you).... no waivers, no extra insurance, no bullshit, just get out there and drive with the germans and their cars..............

Glad to hear they still take care of you in the forces!!! I wish I could take my C over there and drive the winding roads of Westphalia, many memories of doing that, but in my day it was in a 4 cyl. Opel Kadett. Ya gotta love those memories!!!!! :drive: :beerchug:

I heard that GM is stopping military overseas shipments(and military sales alltogether). Is Chrysler continuing?
Haven't heard that, see GM products on base for sale all the time, but then I haven't asked either, hardly interested in any GM product, except perhaps the new Z06...
