    Hey everybody, great to be here! Recent Challenger R/T owner, LOVE my car! The first owner of my car kept it VERY clean, so even though it's four years old, it still looks brand new (& I intend to keep it that way). Going to be doing some light mods to start with, & we'll see where it goes from there.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Fortunately (I guess) for me, but DEFINITELY fortunately for my car, there is no "Honey" in the picture at the moment, hah-hah. In regards to mods tho, I'm gonna restrict it to only doing mods that won't void the remaining 7mths I have on the factory powertrain warranty.

    That leaves you plenty of options.

    I created an album (open to member viewing) & have added some pics of Big Red & how she currently looks in case anyone is interested. Also added a couple pics of the tire "project" I did before the 2 get mounted next week on the rear wheels.

    there are a lot of things you can do that wont void your warranty.

    Welcome to the forum. I have a 2009 Hemi-orange SRT and, just like you, I keep it in showroom condition.

    Just to give you some modding ideas, check out my garage photos. Most of the engine bay and interior mods were done using billet parts.

    Thanks, right on, I will definitely check out your pics. I almost bought a Hemi Orange '13 R/T Plus, but the '14 R/T Classic is more my style. Plus, my car has a moonroof, had about 12K less miles than the '13 when bought, was kept in better shape, AND (1 of the key checks in the "plus" column), had almost a year left on the factory power train warranty. I REALLY like the Hemi orange color, & I wasn't so sure that I wanted to buy a car in "Arrest-Me-Red", but the overall package sold me on it.
