    I still cannot understand the decision to put such tiny wheels/tires on these cars. Who the hell decided that? Lessee, we gave the 645HP Viper 355s, why not give this 700hp car ....275s!!!

    My Mazda CX-3 does this.

    Well, a cx3 probably needs that during daily commutes

    New Mazda cx3 is probably faster than a 4th gen Trans am at this point

    Funny enough a Mazda CX3 is what caused my wife to start looking. We bought my daughter a CX3 a couple weeks ago and the wife liked how quiet and smooth it was.

    Should have just gotten a TrackHawk and been done with it

    GC looks great, though.

    Though GC's are great. I would definitely consider one if I hadn't bought a new truck last summer.

    I think those are awesome, but I just can't bring myself to pay $90k for one. And the wife would probably kill herself.

    My neighbor who USED TO have a Trackhawk dropped by the other day. I asked him about it. He sold it. Why? Because somebody offered him $15,000 more than he paid for it, that's why. He's now awaiting delivery of his 6-figure C8.

    Aaaand found one.
    2017 Maximum Steel Metallic complete with Fast and Furious sticker. Yeah, that's going to come off.
    10k miles
    Brass stripes to match the brass Monkey wheels
    HK sound. Laguna leather, heat/cooled seats


    My worries, as pointed out on here, were unfounded about the blower being too quiet. Man I love that sound. Exhaust is good enough I really doubt I will change anything about it. In fact, for a while at least, I won't do anything. The Leg..somethingoranother intake will eventually get on there, but not much more than that. Especially not until there is more tire. I think the 275s weep every time the car starts. Seriously Dodge, what the fuck? Its not a gas pedal with those on there, it is an oversteer controller. But damn when it does hook, like from a 65 roll , it is fun. The WOT upshifts in track mode are quite glorious to behold.

    Oh and I will have to replace the stripes. The ones on there are getting sun faded and I actually like the look. Haven't seen another one like it.

    BWoody is the other intake to get, similar to the LMI.

    Nice! That's a pretty rare color and it looks great with the brass monkeys. I'd like to see more pics of it showing the stripes.

    Thanks all. I'm loving it so far. No complaints at all other than I need a long stretch of road where I'm certain the cops aren't around lol. Need to take it to the track at some point this summer hopefully.

    G6, I like the LMI better, looks quite nice under the hood. And it will be my first mod for sure.

    I didn't see too many of this color when I was looking around for sure. It was originally owned by a guy in Canada. Which explains the lack of rubber in the fender wells, too polite to do burnouts

    I'll get more pics for sure once I get it cleaned up this weekend. My daughter has already requested that she be allowed to do a "photo shoot" with it.

    I'm a huge fan of the brass stripes and wheels with this color as well. Haven't seen another with this combo.

    Only problem with the brass monkeys is that I'll have to find replicas of them when I go for wider tires in the back.

    If there’s one thing you have to do, cut out the stock resonators and replace them with the Dynomax Race Mini bullet mufflers. It takes the exhaust note to another level without increasing the decibel level at cruise.

    I'd have to ride in one like this first before I did that. I detest drone of any kind.

    The exhaust in this thing has to be the best of any car that isn't an exotic. I'm just biding my time until we visit the in-laws again and I go through the Inner Harbor tunnel. Imma scare the shit outta someone.
