    On a minor scale, I wish they'd nix the out-of-place analog clock that detracts from the styling of the center stack.

    Since we are nit-picking:

    - I love the 1950s-inspired look of the IP in the current 300; but it also makes the speedometer hard to read...unless you set LCD between the two pods to read the speed digitally; its tendency to automatically revert back to MPH(US)/KMH(Canada) every time you restart the engine is an annoyance.
    - The rest of the dashboard is accessible and easy to use; but the overall design lacks visual impact, maybe a bit too functional-looking for a $40,000+ vehicle
    - The headlights and grille lost distinctiveness against the prior generation. Hope they restitute some of it to the front-end of the new 300
    - The Menu functions accessed via the steering-wheel button on newer Chrysler vehicles (i.e., 300, Charger, Journey) are way too distracting for quick use: those Up/Down, Fore/Back buttons require you to take your eyes off the road to figure out where on the menu you are
    - The new A8 should greatly improve the driving experience with the HEMIs; I hope they eliminate the MDS drone in the 6.4L version. It was pretty annoying, especially in a $60,000 car

    I hope they keep the 300 and Ghibli as far apart as possible. Sharing styling cues between the two would be the most idiotic thing FCA could do to the high-margin Ghibli.

    That drone just sounds like a cammed up motor to me. Love that sound... Burble, burble, burble... ;)

    Not when it is cruising at 75MPH...sounds more like bees mating inside a tin can

    It would be nice to see the top 300 optioned with similar lux appointments as the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee summit. ....like Noise cancelling. ..

    I was surprised to see that it's not being offered.

    If you look closely @ the first picture you see some with camo on the front and back. The rest are transport protectant.
    In fact pic 2 shows a white one backed into the building!

    i saw that one as well. unfortunately for me i really only see the eastbound shipments via the QEW, rather than any pilots which may be off to CTC

    Can confirm. Using the EVIC display menus while in motion is a risky endeavor. Also the analog speedometer in the Journey is not easy to accurately read. Numbers are small and cramped and the needle point is excessively large for some reason (the red needle has a black plastic backing that is a fair bit wider than the lit part of the needle). I pretty much have to leave my EVIC display on the digital speed readout all the time.

    The car's in the pics are 2015 300's.
    The front and rear fascia are the only parts covered with a "camo bra". The badges are covered with a camo sticker.
    All cars are shipped with minimal protective plastic. Door bumpers and plastic along the lower front fascia are the extent of our protection.

    Cool thanks for the confirmation, and thanks to EVOL for the good catch. I'm going to go back and look at the pics again. The last one I was looking at was not the pic in question I guess.

    Looking again, thanks. I looked at the wrong pic! I see them now. How funny. Everyone was so Hellcat crazy about those pics that they missed the obvious LOL.

    Either way, from what I understand, the update is nice.
