    Danno, I agree... while suggesting that there's a cheaper way to get most of the way there. But oh2o seems to think...and he's usually right.

    Oh no, all of those wheels look amazing, especially the split 5 spokes on the 300C.

    Yes, yes he is. I defer to his statements, always.

    That said, Chrysler has gotten very shifty lately...

    I like the new side and rear profile of the 2015 300 a lot better. I still like the current grille a bit more though. While I like having a shifter in my cars, the rotary dial wouldn't kill me to have but the only thing I can find a disappointment about the 2015 model year is the center stack. It has that same stupid blank plastic surround. The Charger and Challenger have such a better look with the aluminum bezels.

    Agreed. Too much blank, flat black plastic.

    Put an auxiliary switch there with a pig tail you can buy at the parts counter if nothing else...

    If you don't want to see so much flat black plastic, look inside another trim level like the 300C. The 300S (shown above) emphasizes black trim inside and out.

    The C had it also, next to the clock.

    I am still amazed how little it took to get the design right. Refinements like these are probably the hardest to pull off and require a keen eye.

    The main problem centers around the clock. The need to have a clock surrounded by plastic is just not good. If they used wood, or just removed the clock, it'd be better. My opinion of course, I know some die-hard clock fans. I'm just not one. The radio has a clock built in so functionality-wise, it's pointless.

    Totally agree.
    Except we Ohioans have to put a license plate on the front to screw everything up :(:(:(

    Move to just about any surrounding state and that won't be an issue. :)
    I know Ohio talked briefly about eliminating the front plate recently but decided to keep it.

    Texas requires it, but doesn't enforce it often. I think laws like that are mainly there to give LEOs a valid reason to stop you and see what you're up to if you look suspicious. Once they've got a reason to talk to you, if you incriminate yourself, they can do more that just talk. My father's Charger has no front plate, nor does my Sebring. If my Ram's bumper didn't have holes in it already, it wouldn't either...

    I do kind of wish auto makers would take plates into account in the design though, and not simply as an after though (Seen a Ford EcoBoost's plate location?), seeing as many State's require them.

    ROFLMAO, that right there is enough to describe Texas as a whole :D
    selective enforcement of laws, "y'know, in case we wanna mess with y'all"! ;)

    The 300C platinum in that gallery looks smooth as hell. The only gripe I have is the center stack from the clock to the cupholders. It's a sorry mess in every L car, with the exception of the new Challenger.
