    I just traded in my 2013 Challenger for a 2015 Charger SXT. It is basically loaded and only has 3k miles on it. It has the Premium Group with Heated/Vented Seats, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure, Navigation, Beats Sound System, a memory seat, and pretty much every other interior feature aside from a sunroof. It is Bright White with a black painted roof and Black/Pearl interior.

    Since I am a senior in high school, this will be the car that gets me through college. My payments only went up slightly from the Challenger, so I figured why not go for it since I get 4 doors, better fuel economy, and a whole lot of other features. Only things I have to do to it are have the front windows re-tinted to match the rear and get plugs for the front license plate holes, but it's a seriously great feeling to have a vehicle that came from the factory with everything you could ever want.

    Looking forward to learning about all the safety stuff it has, as well as owning my second Mopar vehicle!

    Looks nice. You are going to love the vented seats on hot days. My first 2015 Charger SXT was white with the black/pearl seats also - I ordered it that way. I only drove it 3 months before it sacrificed itself to keep me safe in a major collision. I was so impressed with the safety features that I bought another 2015 Charger SXT (this one black with black interior) to replace it when the insurance check came. My commute is a 70/30 mix of hwy/city driving, and I'm averaging above 28 MPG.

    Be careful with those white seats after a party.

    And as far as tinting the front windows, keep in mind in some states any front tint is illegal. The previous owner of my 07 Jeep had tinted the fronts to match the rears and I wound up removing it. I liked it in summer but at night you really can 't see to the sides in dark neighborhoods when turning into dark street. A hazard!

    Yes, I'm aware but I will risk it. My Challenger tint was extremely dark as well. The Chargers and 300s both look great with very dark windows in my opinion.

    Got pulled over 2x because of it, first time got a warning, second time got a ticket that was cancelled when I showed them I had it taken off!
    More important, it could cause a serious accident if you don't see someone stepping off a curb on a dark street when you are turning left.
    Modern cars in general, are safer than the cars I grew up (1970s) with except for one thing, outward visibility. We have gone backward in this regard. Our 2 older vehicles, (1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 1998 Subaru Legacy wagon) have considerably better visibility than my 07 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

    This Charger is pretty damn unique. R/T wheels, a non-OEM spoiler, and I have never seen that interior before. I really like it.

    Thanks! The wheels are included with the Premium Group and I am 99% sure the spoiler is one from a 2014 Charger R/T, if not then it is very similar. When I saw that it was arriving at the dealership I wasn't expecting a spoiler but I was pleasantly surprised!

    I think you're right about the 14 spoiler, that is for sure the same styling (however I wonder if they mount the same). The wheels being a part of Premium Group must by a USA thing, as in Canada those are exclusive to an R/T. Have fun buddy, and keep it in Sport mode ;)

    This is the spoiler from the previous Charger model, looks identical to me. I haven't seen one before on a 2015 though. It was very unusual to see one come into the dealership with the spoiler I wanted even though the model wasn't originally offered with it. Felt like it was "meant to be" or something.

    To me, even the base model (SE) Charger is a good-looking car. But I've got to say that yours is REALLY NICE! It's got me to thinking about the possibility of ordering a new Charger exactly as I want one. The black/pearl interior is nice, and I hadn't seen that before. And, what really intrigues me is that Houndstooth seats are available on the 2017 models. The first of my (4) 1973 Rallye model Chargers had the Houndstooth seats, and I very much liked that option. Don't think I've ever seen another 1973 Charger with the Houndstooth seats. And, a close friend with a 4-speed , 1973 Z-28 Camaro had one with the Houndstooth seats.

    I definitely would recommend a Charger to you. I am even satisfied with the V6, probably more than I would have been with the Hemi because I get 6 extra MPG and a quieter ride. It's really a do-everything car. It is very comfortable on long trips and it looks and drives sporty. I loved my Challenger, but I'm so glad I upgraded to a Charger.

    Senior in high school? Wow! What are the insurance rates on that Charger, if you don't mind me asking? I'm thinking of trading my 2013 200 and would love a Charger. No hemi. I've outgrown the need for speed. Kind of. I still have my 03 PT GT when I want to go fast!

    I guess I should have been clear. I haven't seen a '15 with that spoiler.
