2012 SRT8 charger and 300c

Just wondering if anyone has checked these out. I just bought my wife a Durango RT and when I went to pick up the plates checkedout the charger and 300c. I drove the Charger and I have to say, for under $50k, this car is a beast.
The interior is actually nice and to get contrast stitching and swede inserts in my M3 would be $5k, this car comes with is. Brembos, nav, rear camera, double pane windows, big steering wheel(flat bottom), huge side bolsters on the seats, nice pedels, nice sound, etc etc.
This charger is big and feels big , but it is fast. I didnt drive the 300c, but like the looks of the 300c better on the outside, and 300c has carbon trim inside which is better.

anyone check one of these out?

been curious to take one of these out for a test drive as well. was looking at a fiat 500 with a friend and they had a charger on the floor. i totally agree with you on the interior. its shocking. my one issue with the car is its size. it really is massive.

Chrysler definitely moving in the right direction with the 300/Charger. Now I'm just dying to see the new ZF-based 8-speed auto paired up with the Hemi ....

yes it is big, very big, felt big like my wife durango, was still very fast. and it would cost sooo much to get all these extras in another car.

the 300c seems a little smaller, I would get it over the charger.
