    Stupid question: SRT8 Challengers have heated leather seats and auto HVAC standard...right? I thought they did...until I saw this one. I see the seat heater switches...but those don't LOOK like leather seats...and that DEFINITELY looks like the base (manual) HVAC control system. Is something wonky here, or is this just an unusually-low-option (also no sunroof) SRT8? :help:

    Or do I need new glasses? :think:

    Can you upload a photo or link? Not sure what you're referencing...

    Standard features back in 2010 weren't quite the same as they are now.

    My ‘14 R/T has the same HVAC control I think, and it has auto control. And the seats look like the other leather seats I’ve seen on those year models. I think it’s legit

    Auto HVAC would have numbers on the temperature control dial, and "AUTO" on the fan control. This does not.

    I looked at some of the You Tube reviews of the 2010 SRT8 from "back-in-the-day" and they all show the same interior as what the one in your link shows.

    Doesn't look like the Auto HVAC system was available. Or at least not standard.

    I know that 2011 was a refresh year for the appearance of the Challenger inside and out. For example, the 2011 does not have the Ram head on the top of front fascia. My 2011 R/T Classic had an Auto HVAC system and I remember one of my Mopar buddies telling me that my interior was nicer than his.

    I own a 2009 SRT. Auto HVAC was not an option. Also, the seats were leather with aggressive side bolsters and functional swede inserts. They were an excellent design and were highly acclaimed by all of the major automotive magazines. (Note- The purpose of the inserts was to grip your body in tight high speed cornering).

    I can see the suede/Alcantara inserts being an advantage. My '15 SRT has an all leather interior. I'm wide enough ( :) ) that the bolsters are able to do their job, but I can see where a smaller person might slide around a little on a freshly treated seat
