Just took delivery of a silver 300 Limited. Did not want to pay heavy premium for a HEMI, not to mention that the car will be used primarily as a commuter vehicle.

I had been checking out this forum and I picked out my options as follows:
26K convinience package with heated seats and adjustable pedals.
sunroof
Navigation
Rear distronic
HID
Claifonia walnut package

I am very happy with the car, but I am already looking for upgrades (grille, possibly chrome A/B pillars and wood trim pieces for the interior)

I am hoping that reading through this forum would help answering some of my ongoing questions. You guys seem like a good bunch, so I hope to stick around.


BTW- 3.5L Enginge does the job just fine.. albeit the HEMI is a beast, but I already have a couple of super-beasts in the stable.

Pictures will follow detailing today!

The Nav is simple.

Depending on what your prefs. are. My suggestion is to 'play' with it. When I got mine I spent 30 mins. without the manual and had figured most of it out. Once I used the manual everything else went quiclky.

Also use the NAV thread I, learned alot from the post there.

Welcome, this is a great group of nuts,the Nav is very user friendly, I bought mine from a forum member and did the install myself. I do not have a manual (too cheap to pay $5.00 shipping for a $3.00 manual) and I have it working beautifully.

Just when I started to figure NAV out I got a call from my salesperson telling me he will trade the car for a "C" that just came in to his dealership today (I assume because he knew that I really wanted the HEMI and they didn't have any at the time).

Same pacage, with NAV, same color combo, same price. He really surprised me and I think I am going to go ahead and get the HEMI, especially for the same price!

Be back soon, with pics!

slk- Did you get the hemi? I would jump on the offer if I were you. Of course you did say that you have other performance vehicles so it might not be enticing to do so. I'm sure if you test drive the hemi then you'll make the swap. Let us know how it turns out!
