When I ordered this car, some of the first things I thought would I would do are:

Window Tint
Look for a 20" wheel
Interior dress up (for the miscillaneous trim pieces that are particularly plastic looking) Tortoise Shell trim accents maybe?
Front Grill (with Verticle or Horizontal slits, or a Mesh cross hatch)
Cold Air intake
SS Exhaust, or tips

Honestly, none of this is really necessary, the Tint and Wheels are the main appearance items that I will looking into first. What are your priorities, if any?

I wonder how difficult one of the aftermarket turbos suited for the Ram would be to retrofit? I bet hood clearance would be a large problem, not to mention all of the plastic engine covers. I'm VERY curious what will be done to HP on the SRT model, if anything. :D 20" wheel, absolutely. Check out the giovanna Bremans here:

They should still maintain some ride qualtity with the right tire.

I would love to put some window tint and some blue flames on my black car but I can't see messing with that car yet. Perhaps when I trade up to a SRT8

20's are a must! Too bad about the funky offset and bolt pattern. I live in California, so I am debating whether or no to tint. I really want some nice limo all the way around . . . but do I want a ticket every other week?!? Oh well, customization is a constant battle with this darn state!

Mmm. . . the stock chrome 18's are pretty proportional. 20's might look pretty good though.

Just got my Cool Vanilla tinted 20%. Looks awesome. Need to get some pics this weekend in the sun.

Bently grille, oil filter magnet and transmission pan magnet, cold air intake or K&N filter (not available yet), weather tech advantage floor mats, mirror turn signals (supposedly a dealer option in three months).

Hey,
newbie here and ordered my 300 a few weeks ago and was wondering what the funky offset and bolt pattern was? I was thinking that being rear wheel drive, it would be a no brainer but from what I have been reading, it seems like it is going to be a chore. I have seen one with 22" on it and he did not say anything about it being funky or hard. BTW, I'm looking to put 20's on and the tint will be done before I pick it up.

I will do that right now! Also, I talked to Eibach springs on the phone and they are in the process of making something for our vehicles. They said they have a 300C on 22's in their warehouse and they are currently fabricating the springs for it.

The bolt pattern is what Cadillac/GM uses - 5x115. The 300C OEM wheel is 18x7.5 et24. Wheel selection will be slow because wheel makers will have to retool and make new cast for this car. Most other 5x115 wheels use high offset like et40. 5x114.3 will also fit.

Tires will be first for me, depending on what's available.

Next will be intake/exhaust.

I'll have to think about gears. I want to see how these trannies hold up.
