    So they "Every Dealer in the WEST COAST" were really pushing to get me to drive the Hellcat
    but none were manual trans, even though they are available with the 6-speed.
    Yes, I know the "New & Improved" 8-speed Auto's can shift gears in .065 milliseconds or some such BS,
    and they are 1/2 - 1 full second faster in the 1/4 mile than the manual, I wouldn't even test drive them.

    I say, get what you want and enjoy it. I wouldn't trade my SRT for anything,
    although I am still looking for the right Gen-1 Viper.

    Which year and model of Challenger do you have? Is it the 485 horse engine?

    I think we’re getting off track. Dodgenewbie13 original post was asking about the Harmon Kardon sound system...

    Nope, 425 HP, 2010, just like my 1970 426ci was.
    I drove the 2018's and didn't notice enough power difference to justify the price.

    But yea, B5blueRT is right, we are getting away from Dodgenewbie13's original question :)

    I would go for that 18 speaker upgraded system because it will be a clean install vs. aftermarket.

    bUT where is the antenna located for FM reception or do you just get that shark antenna with the satellite radio and pay extra every month?
