    The interiors are not that much different and the materials are very similar throughout. The Laguna Leather is very nice.

    I looked into the 300s with the beeliever kit (all three stages) it's still short of the base 6.4 and that the issue. Just give us the option of the 6.4 that's all I want. You can keep srt and all the names just give me an option of the 6.4. The beeliever cost 8000 on top of labor which is 20 to 24 hours so another 2000 to 2400 so 10400 on top of the 300s to have an almost 300SRT

    The 300 Super S is powered by a 5.7L Hemi V8 engine that has been upgraded with Mopar Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 upgrade kits. In Chrysler’s own words, the kits “exactly mimic the modifications and performance boosts delivered by the Mopar Scat Pack Performance kits” offered on the 5.7L Hemi Dodge Charger and Challenger models. All three Stage kits combine and work in conjunction with each other when you purchase all three. Combining all three kits together gives you some serious performance upgrades!

    [​IMG]

    These include Mopar performance CNC ported cylinder heads, Mopar hi-flow headers, Mopar hi-flow catalysts, Stage 3 performance PCM, camshaft, tie bars, heavy-duty pushrods and gaskets and a Mopar low restriction oil filter. According to Mopar’s website, the Stage 1 kit gives you an extra 20hp and 22 lb-ft. of torque, Stage 2 gives you gains of 30hp and Stage 3 gives you a boost of 58hp and 47 lb-ft. of torque. That’s some serious performance gains over the stock numbers of 363hp and 394 lb-ft. of torque that the 5.7L Hemi puts out.

    [​IMG]

    So basically you are getting 450 horsepower and 454 ft-lbs of torque.

    Yup, a built 5.7 can be mean as heck.

    The problem is that the base 6.4 is better than all that extra configuration and work.

    I live in Michigan right on Lake Huron. I get tons of Lake Effect snow and I had to have a Charger with AWD. The best thing about the LX, LD and LA cars is that there is a ton of aftermarket stuff for all the trim levels. So I run a bunch of different goodies on my car and it's no HELLCAT but its sounds good and is plenty of fast to blow off a Mustang, Camaro and especially anyone who owns a Monte Carlo SS who thinks the 5.3L is the most bad a$$ car on the planet (long story).

    There is also a hand full of people who have bought the 2014 300 SRT and have modded them to look like 2015 300 SRT export models.

    Lots of options out there.

    I’m pretty happy with the red suede in mine. Laguna leather is definitely high quality though.

    The Charger materials are not good enough, even though they are basically the same and upgraded materials like Laguna Leather are available, and you have never driven a built 5.7 but it is not good enough either. If you are unwilling to accept any possible alternative then maybe you are better off shopping for a vehicle outside of FCA.

    Good luck, I hope you find the vehicle that makes you happy.

    Freiburger got his hands on a 2004-2007 5.7L HEMI and went after huge number gains like that of a HELLCAT.

    On that note, since this is basically a rehash of the same disagreements from months ago, can we close this thread and wait for fresh news to open a new thread?

    We are way off topic in terms of “News” in this thread and trying to moderate this thread now would be difficult (I tried) and most of the opinion could easily be discussed in the L Series Car section of the forum or in one already open threads in the speculation section of the forum.

    Thanks, if I can moderate the thread today I’ll reopen it.

    I don’t care how well any model of Charger drives. I can’t spend my money on it because I don’t like the appearance. But I’m not looking for a 300 SRT, but maybe a 300 that could tow what the Magnum could.

    And that’s your choice. It’s perfectly acceptable. FCA offers what they offer, if it’s not what you desire than you will have to either make an exception or look elsewhere. Unfortunately it is what it is.

    I would still consider buying a used 2008 Magnum SRT8 anytime..

    Yes, it is a great car, but if the styling doesn't appeal to you, you're not going to buy one. I can't stand the 300 and if the 2011 Charger refresh hadn't improved the appearance (IMO) even my desire for a V8 RWD sedan wouldn't have led me to consider a 300.

    I'd love one of those.

    I'd prefer one with styling cues from 2011+, but that isn't an option...at least not one I can afford...so I'll make due with my Charger.
