I am looking at a 06 charger daytona r/t in go mango. it has 68k miles on it and the dealership is selling it for $16k. how good of a deal do yall think this is. the only downside is it doesnt have the factory GPS and that is something i want to have and im told id have to get a new bezel but with it being an 06 i cant put on an 08 bezel for the newest mygig/gps right? what are some ways around this as the daytonas have the special bezel. and again yall think this is a good deal?

Hmm, too high of mileage for my liking. What is the price range of a Charger that you can afford? You should be able to find a newer Daytona with lower milage and the options that you want.

Based on what Carmax is selling them for, it seems like a fair price for what it is. 68K miles is a little high, but on an '06 that means a lot of highway miles (which ain't a bad thing). A lot of Charger owners here have waaay more miles than that and are still going strong. (I have 55K miles on mine and it's still like the same beast it was when new)

You can get the NAV system that was made for that model (like I have) and replace the bezel with the right part from Dodge. It's not the latest MyGig system but it's still pretty nice.

And at the end of the day it's a Mango Daytona...and that's pretty sweet.:bigthumb:

Brembo is only available on the SRT-8. On any other Charger, aftermarket is the only way to get them.

Well I bought my Daytona for 18K with 46 thousand on it so that price seems about right.

I have 36k and would not sell it for $17k. Hopefully that tells you I am very pleased with it and that might be a good deal. Make sure the wife can handle the attention it will get before you decide.

Nothing wrong with plum crazy, it will gain attention in a good way, as with all Daytona's.

BTW, where is Kessler AFB?

If your not in the woods like myself, you should look around for the Daytona you want with the options you want. $17 should land you a nice one!

Nothing wrong with the PlumCrazy for a guy. There was a rumour for a while that they were going to release a PinkPanther Daytona and that would have been the only one guys should have stayed away from (though I would have bought one for my wife right away!).

Plum Crazy is very cool and good Man's Muscle car!

Plum Crazy SRT would be really cool.... if you can bump your budget there is a REALLY nice one on the forum for sale....
