So I bought my 06 Midnight Blue Dodge Charger SE 3.5 on July 4th, 2006.. I'm in the military and at the time was an E4 so I wasn't getting paid a whole hell of a lot.. The only extra option that it had was power drivers seat.. I was happy though, I got the car that I thought I couldn't afford.. Loved it.. Added some things that really annoyed me that it didn't have and things that I just thought made it better.. Here's that mod list..

  • Mopar Hood Struts
  • Side Moldings Removed
  • Emblems Debadged
  • 3rd Brake Light Cover
  • Custom Visor Overlay
  • Billet Door Pins
  • Locking Gas Cap
  • 6 Disc CD/MP3 Changer
  • Blinker Mod
  • Airaid QuickFit CAI 350-171
  • S&B Air Filter
  • Honeycomb Grille
  • Fog Lights
  • 20% Tint All Around
  • Mopar Dual Cat-Back
  • Blue Dome Lights
  • Charger Script Emblems (Grille, Sides and Trunk)

I got back from deployment July 3rd, 2007 and didn't do anything to the car after I got back.. Married life, I tell ya.. lol.. Seriously though, I had a bunch of things I wanted to do but just never got around to it..

May of 2008 rolls around and I'm getting HEMI fever.. I vowed that I would never drive one because I knew that I'd want one.. So I convince the wife that maybe we should go look at one.. They're having really good deals right now and I have a guy that will make that deal even better.. I do my research online and narrow it down to 3 that I want.. Found them on the lot and out of the colors available, I like the Steel Blue.. It's kind of a weird color but it changes with the lighting and angle you look at it.. So we talk to my guy and take it for a test drive.. I love it.. The wife loves it.. We make the deal.. So on May 30th, 2008 I became a member of the upgrade club.. Onto the mods and info..

Welcome fellow HEMI owner. I too loved my SXT but yearned for more power and cylinders.
