I guess that it is one of those things that you have to see to rate correctly. The paint sounds nice but my personal taste does not include all of the chrome accessories you listed. Again, I would have to see a pic to give a true rating but the most important thing is how you rate it. If you do a little searching you will see there are a lot of people who hate 24's and chrome everywhere but there are also some that love that look.

Welcome to the forum.

agreed....

having your cake and eating it too will be expensive, if you got the pockets to do so, brah, then do work...

but huge tires, basically put the car at a large disadvantage, and all the mods in the world may, if lucky, bring it back to stock power.



might wanna sit down and value and rate what YOU think is important. everyones gonna give different answers, which ultimately leaves you back at square one.

if you cant figure out is something worth doing, or its value, it might be wiser to just save your cash and wait till you do.

first thing i'd personally start with is figure out if you want a show car or a race car, and go from there.

i have to say i agree with both of you, but the reason i bought the charger was for looks. Trust me if i wanted a race car i would have went for the hemi, but giving the car sound along with performance and looks seems like a good combo to me. especally along with the v6. I also have to add in, there is no other look 2 have ona charger except 24s.....except when at the track :lol: :lol:

And to those of you familiar with thomas night, the supercharger everybody keps talking about is stage 1. You add a front mount intercooler & piping with it, grade 9 bearings, injectors, and maybe some forged pistons, you can at LEAST double stage 1 psi. This is pulling away from the 5.7 keeping up with the 6.1. give him a call, i talked to him for over an hour....(just thought id throw it in since ive herd nobody else say it).

I'd say: "go nuts!"
Sounds like you have a plan, run with it. It'll look great and have pretty good performance.
