    Thanks! I am not concerned with MPGs otherwise I would have bought a Chevy Cruze or something similar lol. So far it's not so bad actually. But then again I haven't had it that long yet.

    Congrats on the new (to you) Charger. They get about 20mpg on the highway, not bad for a big car. Good D/D and ALOT more comfortable if you decide to take a trip in it. BTW my wife has 06 black R/T.

    The price for what it had and looks is what made me buy it.

    I didn't think I was until I got in and drove it. Thanks all for the nice comments.

    Nice ride and congrats. I raced one in my SHO a few days ago from dig and he was on my rear bumper. The new charger taillights are perfect IMO

    I average between 15-18 mpg but most of my daily driving is in the city. I am fighting the urge to not mod it for a while.

    True but my WS.6 feels a lot lighter but that is comparing a 3300 lb car to a 4800 lb one.

    I may have misread what I originally said. As I can't find where I saw that in the manual. I swear it said that though.
