Hello Gang,

Just a quick note to say that I had the chance to look at a '06 CV "C". Today I was at one of the local Chrysler dealers in my area and they had a '06 "C" delivered over the weekend. The car still had the plastic protective coverings on the seats and where else they usually go.

No, I have no plans on trading in my 'baby', but I wanted to see the differences in the '06's vs the '05's. I didn't get the chance to see if the "World Famous" signature of Grunt was anywhere on the car, but I know that the same caring people at BA took the time and did a great job for another future owner. Hopefully, whoever purchases that one will have alot of trouble free miles, just like I have had so far!

Sincerely,

Brian T. Carotenuto

Sooo tell us did it have the rumored Tire Pressure Monitoring System, or the Daytime Running Lights? I have heard that those are features on the new '06.

If that's a C, then i see they took away the chrome mirrors... too bad too, i liked em, and made spotting a C much easier.

the pic in his sig is his CV 300, not the 2006 CV 300C he was commenting on. i'm pretty sure the chrome mirrors were carried over to the 2006 models as well as the rest of the chrome trim found on the 2005 300C's.

Thanks for the mention of the '06 sticker, I was pretty sure about the pressure monitoring, I think that it is mandated on many if not all the '06's. I had heard from my dealer that they were going to have DRL, but time will tell.

JS440 and others...

To answer your questions, Just like what MHC said, the chrome mirrors are still there. The picture in my signature is a picture of a CV base like mine. I didn't happen to notice about the radio with the outputs or the TPM system. Everything is basically the same as our 05's, the only external difference is that the fuel filler door now has a small hook to hang the cap tether on, and the price has gone up! I can check again if needed. I hope this helps.

Sincerely yours,

Brian T. Carotenuto

new headrests?

I thought they were going to redesign the headrests for 2006.

The ones in my 2005 300C go all the way up when I get in and push against them at all, especially with a coat on. I wish they would stay down. I was hoping the 2006 versions would solve this and I would have my dealer swap them out, or buy the new ones.

Any thoughts? Anyone seen the new interior? did they change the headrests any? the pictures of the car on E-bay look the same as in 2005.
