    Probably would fit better in a different thread, but on the 2017+ Charger R/T, does the active exhaust change the sound a bit when the car is put into sport mode? Looking at a 2017 R/T that has active exhaust.

    The regular R/T front end looks amazing in F8 Green....

    Perfect color for that trim.

    Those rims look super dark. I noticed that they became darker in 2017 which I like. Are these even darker or does it just seems so in the light

    I can't find light colored wheels on many Dodge offerings. I'd hate to pay $40k for a car and then need to change the wheels (and possibly the tires - they are often crap) to make it right. I did that on my 2016 Wrangler and will be doing it on my 2016 Durango R/T soon.
    That's a big deterrent for the Challenger GT IMO.

    On the 392 Daytona, I don’t notice any difference in sport mode. I think it only opens the exhaust with throttle input. Sport seems to affect mds, trans , and traction

    Went ahead and bought a 2017 Scat Pack. I don’t really notice a difference in the exhaust in sport mode either.

    On my challenger it changes throttle response and will hold a gear or downshift faster when braking.

    Love that F8 Daytona ^ but wish they wouldn't call them Daytonas. They aren't in nascar anymore and haven't been for years - it should just be the highest level R/T, which is what it is.

    Somehow this 2018 SRT HELLCAT in F8 Green showed up to the dealer with 2017 HELLCAT badges and red brakes. Certain cars for 2018 are still coming with the 2017 badges and some are coming with the 2018 badges... anyone know about this?
