Does anybody know if the new electrical architecture and 8 speed will make future tuning more difficult?

Like - New electronics, LED taillights (supposed to be tinted), 8 speed trans, launch control feature, perimeter LED DRL lighting on headlamps BUT the fascia LED's are overkill now.

Don't like - CHROME wheels and other trim (wheels would look better in subtle gunmetal grey or black chrome), lack of a power-plant upgrade and:

The gap under the headlamps (narrow sections adjacent to grill) looks cheap as h**l



WTF is with the steering wheel ? It reminds me of my kids video game controller. 16 buttons on the front alone PLUS the stereo controls on the back

i agree the new 5 wheel design looks like the wheels that used to come on the 5.7L Chargers and the Ram 1500 Sport. Im planning on getting a 14' but if i do im prolly going to be looking for a 13' Vapor or Alpine to switch wheels with since im sure there is someone that prefers these. (Although someone said that the 12-13 wheel with black chrome is an option for 14 so that sounds OK to me).

QUESTIONS?

The more I look at the new 5 spokes the more they look like a cheap cop out. I hate to say it but I'm probably gonna get the original WK2 SRT8 wheels. SRT has a piss poor wheel department. Ralphy needs to be cut out of the wheel approval role. Terrible.

But God I love the new SRT8. Sure the LEDs look stupidly cheesy...but everyone's doing it. It's almost like real life family trucksters (National Lampoons Vacation)...but I can deal with that for all of the interior goodness and powertrain.

I already made my mind up that I am getting a '14 but how long should I wait? What improvements are coming mid model year? Some one mentioned Blu Ray and also when I bought mine which was a later '12 all the goodies ACC and the Luxury Group were standard where as earlier in the model year those were packages...I know that every ones guess is as good as mine but I would like to hear some opinions. Also anyone looking for a mildly used 2012 when the time is right? I have added a bunch of add ons to mine.

Click the link below and go to the very bottom. You'll see LATE AVAILABILITY for the Blu Ray and twin Head Rest Monitors vs a drop down. My guess is now you can have the dual sunroof AND rear entertainment now. There's also something else late availability.
