I have always maintained that the SRT should have more accents and not look so much like a mid range 300...however others disagree and maintain that for the sporty look, body color is the way to go...your choice.

Since you're asking for opinions... I like the chromed door handles and would probably order them too, I like how they accent the beltline. But I couldn't care less about the chomed mirrors, in fact on a bright sunny day they can be annoying.

I tend to like full body paint. On my C I have been thinking about removing some chrome and painting others.

The 300s have to much plastic where paint or chrome should be e.g. the connection from the side mirrors to the car and the pillars.

If you have black the plastic blends in but as most of us here are 'very involved' the plasctic look should go.

If I had the SRT I probably wouldn't get the chrome but have the plastic parts color matched.

Either way, stock, chrome, or color matched you're gonna have a nice car!!!

according to mopar super center on this forum around $140 for door handles,$295 for mirrors.I will probably buy door handles to accent the Asantie wheels #af131 which is a deep 8-spoke wheel to match the SRT/8.

DC have said the 300 (both models of only 2 to be release here) for Australia will not have much chrome as they reckon Aussies don't like it. That is not necessarily true.

So, crappy Magnum wheels, possibly no chrome mirrors or door handles. I gotta wait and see. Maybe I will need to buy them after taking delivery. :(

If you replace stock 20" srt-8 wheels what do you plan on selling them for?
