A new '06

KJ... I'm a tall guy (6'4") and rearviews are always slung way too low for me. So the first thing I do is push them up as far as I can near the headliner, then tilt just the mirror portion down to show the road behind. Makes visible a lot more of the road ahead and too the right side for me!kevenj said:If I have any complaints they are: ... and you can hide a schoolbus behind the inside rearview mirror.

The only major changes I can think of were a small upgrade to the passenger seat(I think they are 8 way now), plus the tire pressure monitor system(shows the actually reading on each tire). I think there were one or two other changes, but, mostly minor(map pockets or some such).kevenj said:I'm sure this could vary from car to car within the same model year, and after all they really didn't change anything
I also bought an 11month old, fully loaded, Midnight Blue Pearl 300C with only 1,240 miles on it a few months ago. Previous owner didn't drive it much as this was a work car for his "away" office. He replaced it with a Black SRT8. I had considered the 300C out of my price range until I found this one on EBay.kevenj said:Between the 2 used ones (05 and 06) you get the 7/70 powertrain warranty with the '05 for a transfer fee of $150, provided you are the second owner and not the third. On the 06 the warranty is only 3/36.
Well i'm only 6'1", and i've never really had that issue with a car before... Don't see any way to push the rearview "up" much in the 300. But like I said it's just something to get used to (which I pretty much have).GoofyTimL said:KJ... I'm a tall guy (6'4") and rearviews are always slung way too low for me.

Magnuman, down here in Boise. How's your weather? Any snow yet
No we have not run them; Dad just got the SRT8 at the end of August; The Magnesium 300C was my dad's and I bought it from him when his SRT8 finally arrived. My "C" only has 2900 miles and Dad's SRT8 has 1300 miles on it. (He's got a 2000 Grand Cherokee that he bought new, and has just 21,000 miles on it now) so you can see he didn't really need the SRT8; he's about to turn 71 and wanted to buy himself a toy. When he was a 20 year old kid pumping gas a guy used to come in with a brand new 1955 Chrysler 300 and my dad vowed that one day he'd own a Chrysler 300 with a hemi !magnuman said:kevenj,
Beautiful pair. I'd for sure take the SRT, if given the choice. How much faster than yours? Have you and your dad run them at the drags?
