Wow! Huge improvement. New rims are better but still boring.

SRT better not increase the MSRP one damn penny. Now I've gotta wait a little while for the bugs to be worked out.

I wonder what (if any) new numbers it's putting out...?

Its supposed to be much quicker with much faster shifts than the 2012. Just watched the reveal with Ralph Gilles and he kept mentioning the fact that it has "lightning quick" shifts and downshifts. He made a point to not mention 0-60 times either saying that the media always gets a better time than they put out anyway. Definitely looks great inside and out! Have to start filling the piggy bank!

They are LEDs but use a diffused approach instead seeing the individual LEDs.

I've been hearing performance is only slightly better. My guess is 0-60 may improve 0.2 if that. I'm guessing 1/4 times will still be similar. I guess we wait and see what the magazines say, and real world numbers.

IMO, everything looks great....except the wheels. The wheels look straight off a mid priced Dodge truck. No more HP either. I guess they plan on offering an ACR version later on that is force fed.

I wouldn't say screwed them. SRT is evolving as a brand. They are giving buyers options! Colors, interiors, wheels, etc... Something new is always coming out. So you can't always own the best all the time lol. I'm still happy and like my 12. The 14s look great. I like the progress SRT is making, and look forward to the future. Forced induction! Again , another option for owners to choose.

one of the things i loved about the Alpine was they only made 400 of them. I paid extra for a limited edition and ive had it for 35 days and now its not that limited anymore.

i agree on the wheels. looks like the wheels from a ram truck mid 2000's.

i like everything else though.
