The Chrysler 300 and the Dodge Magnum share 5 colors of the 7 available for 2005. They each have two distinct colors. The 300 would look very good in Mineral Grey Metallic:

Personally I don't like any of the 300c colors, and eventually picked magnesium which is actually more like Teal, with more green than I prefer.
Black is actually my favorite, but I have been driving black cars for too many years and I am just burnt out on black.
I have seen other pictures of the Magnum Metallic Grey and really liked it, although I would have liked to see it in person. There is a good chance I would have picked the Metallic Grey if it were available on the 300c.

Another thing I don't like is the shiny chrome rims on the 300C and prefer the less shiny Magnum rims.
I didn't think the Magnum rims came with the 300C until I saw the pictures you just posted.

How do I get the Magnum rims instead of the 300's rims?

My 300c is still on order and was in BX when I checked last week.

Would I have to special order the rims and ask my dealer to exchange them for free?
I will need to find out if the 300'c rims are priced higher/lower than the Magnums.

The 300C pictured is an export version..

They also do not sell the Dodge Magnum in Europe...

To get the Magnum Polished rim on a 300C from the factory you would have to move to Europe! :D You can not special order the Magnum Rims on a 300 in the US. You would have to work something out with your dealer or the Parts Department for a trade-in or swap of course it would be to their advantage price wise.

www.leeauto.com lists the 300C Chrome Clad rim for $124. It has been removed but the Magnum Polished rim was listed as $224!

I agree with Joey. I would have liked mineral gray or charcoal grey (with a BLACK interior, damn it!). I went with Magnesium also, which looks quite nice, but whoever chose the 300's colors should be horse whipped and made to wear women's underwear on his/her head.

I now see the European clue - the middle back seat head rest.
Guess I will call the dealer to see what it would take to get Magnum rims.

Any Magnum buyers out there want to swap rims? :eek:

Chrysler should have saved money by not needing two rear seats in inventory - one with 2 and one with 3 head restraints! Headrestraints are required on every seat in Europe. Mercedes and others send their cars to the US with the same 3 rear restraints although not required. Chrysler should do the same. That would cut down on part numbers and inventory.
