Hi all, I am new to this site and am a new owner of a 2006 300c and am super excited about it. This site looks awesome and I am excited to get involved. I am already looking to make some changes and thought I would throw out there my interest. Any help or direction would appreciated.
-Looking to get a new hood (mad eyes, preferably a one piece).
-New headlights (Halo, black housing, and without LED's if possible).
-Exhaust (I see a ton of them so any advise on a good system would help).
-Intake (same as exhaust).
-Computer.
I'm sure it wouldn't end with this list but for now this would satisfy me.
It came with SRT-8 matte black 22's that for now are good and I have already removed the moldings which I think looks much better!

I did see that write up on the boat shop. As of now it is the best direction I have seen and will most likley go that way. Unless I see something better. I did find a pic of a CF hood that looks pretty dam good too!

new headlights with halos but no LEDs?
so you want CCFL's?... you know they do make LED Halos right?
(or you just talking about the 3 or 4 random ones inside the housing?)

Exhaust: Each there own, give us a price range and tell us what type of sound you want then we'll give a better direction.
CAI: best bang for the buck is a LMI and that comes in carbon fiber ;)
Computer: You must mean programmer, and by that you should go with Diablo Predator/Trinity

Thank you. Yea I know they make the LED Halo's. I actually like the rings (on the two primary lights) but not the LED's. Looks like I may need to just do the HALO kits and maybe do the housing my self.

For the Exhaust, Im looking for a deep sound.

Thanks again.

Haha, I dont know what yours looks like. I have only seen a few and I really think it depends on the rest of the mods. Which set up is the CCFL? Is that the one where LED's line the whole bottom of the light?

Hey guys,
I'm a newbie to the 300's,but not to Dodge,Chrysler,Plymouth line. Anyway,
Question: Looking at a 2008 300c that is an SRT Design.Why does it have the 5.7 & not the 6.1 engine. What is the difference between the SRT & the SRT Design models ?
Any help would be much appreciated ! I need to act on this deal fast.
Thanks,Cracr
Hello from across the pond. An SRT Design over here has the Mercedes 3.0 litre turbo diesel engine, 20" wheels, SRT style seats, leather steering wheel, carbon fibre trim, and the MyGig sound system. Oh, and we don't have a Dodge Magnum over here, here's mine.

Wanted to start a possible sticky section and get a list going on all the quirk finds and need to knows for people starting to drive our cars.

I know theres one similar on LXF:
Tips and tricks for our LX's - LX Forums | Dodge Charger Challenger Magnum | SRT8 | Chrysler 300 Forum

Mainly starting this because a friend wants to borrow my car for the weekend so just wondering what else i should inform him about.

So lets start our own list off:

How to use the "AutoStick Trip"
Push left and will change to gear,
push left again to downshift | push right to upshift
push|hold left will put back to Auto

WOT Shift points for 5.7 w/predator
1st gear: 5700rpm|1-40mph
2nd gear: 6000rpm40-90mph
3rd gear: 6000rpm|90-120mph
4th gear: 6000rpm|120-140(fastest i've gone>>>)
5th gear: 6000rpm| (??)

Foglights
shut off when highbeam is turned on (nob flick forward)
stay on when highbeam is held on (pulled backwards)

Rear passenger seat has a storage pouch on the back of it and not on driver side
Rear passenger carpets are labeled because they're different sizes

Turn off ESP when racing

Cig. lighter
(dash) shuts off when car is off
(armrest/storage bin) stays on when car is off

normal "unlock setting"
Press unlock once = unlock driver door only
press unlock twice = unlock all the doors

Change seat settings:
adjust seat, press "s" button then number 1 or 2 desired.
(Yes the autoseat moving back when you take out the key to get out is normal)

Navigation- Fast Address Find: put in the phone number if you have it, instead of the address

EasterEgg/Secret menu
Nav REC-: put on AM then press FM, Nav/CD, 2 + 6 + Enter
Steering wheel: hold down the Music Note and Compass together

Reset Compass:
Hold done compass

Resetting ECU w
while driving: 35mph+... (take foot off gas pedal!) put car in neutral, turn key to start hold for a couple seconds

Resetting PCM/TCM/ECM
pull fuse 11 out for 30 seconds : (different yrs/models have different fuse)

Throttle calibration
1) Insert ignition key and turn to "ON" (not start).
2) Wait for all idiot lights to go out. Check Engine Light may remain on.
3) Slowly depress the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor.
4) Slowly release the accelerator pedal until it's all the way back up.
5) Turn the ignition key to "OFF".
6) Start the engine.


Gas Cap:
there is a little clip to rest the gas cap wire on so that it doesnt rest against the car.

Emergency Exiting
Front driver and passenger doors can open from inside when car is locked : rear doors dont

Auto Front Windows:
press once for auto up down

Wipers:
Single-wipe: press in really quick
Tripple-wipe: press as normal
Auto/Rain-Sensitive: first two clicks

Cruise Control only works 35mph+

Remember emergency trunk latch glows in the dark :pat:

Battery is in the trunk but jumper terminals are in the front!

Traffic/Rage
if Horn dies from being held for too long...shut car off, turn it on and lay on the horn again!

center console
arm rest adjusts forwards and backwards Just give it a nudge

Directional
Tap directional to auto blink 3 times

*rumored?* Fast Heated Seats
start the car, turn on the heated seat, shut off car, start car again and turn on heated seat


Now lets add to the list!

nice thread... didn't know about auto stick, cant wait till tomorrow
hidden stuff is cool to know about

o and the tap blinker for 3 flash is good to know ...

i looked like a moron the other day because i put on the left signal then when to put it back center and went to far so it flash left so then i tried to put it right even through it was already center... so it flashed right, looked like i couldn't decide what i was trying to do to the person behind me lol

NAG1 is the production name of the 5 speed autostick transmission. Try to pull fuse 11, in the engine bay, for about 30 secs. This will reset the transmission adaptives. The computer "learns" how we drive and adaapts over time. Pull it and drive it like you stole it and it should have quicker shifts-for a while any way...

i'd assuming both because its still "driving habit"
you could do the perm fuse reset mod too so every time you start it up its nice and fresh ;)
I was reading through some older posts and seen this....
Can someone explain this mod a little more? I have honestly not heard about this one yet.
