Charger SRT8 vs. 300c SRT8

Which is better, Charger SRT8 vs. 300c SRT8? What are the driving dynamics of each and what are the differences. It seems that they are about the same price so it really comes down to which is "better". Styling is obviously subjective.

Both cars are the SAME. they share everything the few differences i noticed are really minor, the exhaust notes the CSRT8 is a bit louder.
The 300SRT might have a bit more options as far as Gadgets go but nothing major.
Driving impressions are identical since they are about the same weight using the same exact suspension.

they are identical cars minus the styling, so that the only thing you can decide on, powertrain and drivetrain are identical, interior wise is same, charger has bit more room as its slightly longer i believe, modifications are identical, same costs and same set-up, literally only diff you get is exterior looks, interior wise the dash maybe, just have a look on ebay or and thats it, you literally have to know you like sporty performance, or the luxury "fake bentley" look with some power to match, id go 300 only cause i think it looks sexy, but the decision is yours man, no one here can help, lol thats why i dont get these threads sometimes, nothing to say can pursuade you, only you know haha

Is this too long for ya

As said before, the only difference is in appearance. If you want sporty, Charger. If you're looking at a little luxury, 300.

totally agree with Medic

Not in a million years would i get the charger over the 300...

With identical chassis comes identical wheel bases and ground clearances obviously but the 300 is a little more stout IMO do to the shorter length.... its only about a 3" (just looked that up) difference but for some reason the charger appears to be so much longer...

Hard to find a better vehicle that has a sick combination of class and in your face filthiness than the 300 srt8 ha.... it just has that style like its taking over the road.. the charger seems to be trying to hard for some reason

Performance is a wash... exterior goes to the 300 and the interior is insanely similar........................

If you look at both interiors quickly you can even tell the difference

As with the others-it comes down to your you want in your face sport/muscle look or a refinedand classy look with some giddy......IMO-I'd do the Charger because I think they look aggressive and bad azz.....Prime example: Chases' charger-before or after the changes he has made-his is purely a show stopper.
