        hey are they putting the 8spd auto in those in the US yet? I know the pick-ups got it, but the cars here don't yet... That new trans is awesome, gotta love German tech (ZF trans)

          Only the V6 gets the 8 speed auto, not the Hemi yet, maybe next fall in the 2014's.

            What is the GPM, not mpg on that? To drive around the block does that cost $100?

              Yep, got my copy of Word ready to go. $995 sounds about right

                Naahh, no stripes. I like that this one has none, one of the reasons I got it

                  Ummm, I'm not sure. I think so (it doesn't have stripes all over it, lol)

                  Yeah, if memory serves, the V6 is an SXT, the V8 is an RT, and the bigger V8 is a SRT8.

                  So it's an RT

                    5 Speed. Interesting how this is a poor man's Mercedes in a way. S Class front suspension, E class rear suspension, I think a Merc tranny, etc.

                    Of course it has Chrysler body...and yep, its a Chrysler alright comparing it to my Monte Carlo (good and bad ) But time for a change, and I like that this thing is BIG.

                    Well, enough of a break from shoehorning the handcontrols into the car. Gotta get back to work. I don't think I'll be doing a build thread as it would be hard to make out what is what on the photos. I'll post a final result pic when I get it done (hopefully tonight)

                      Well, got it driving. Interesting driving RWD after 10 years of FWD GM stuff. Real light steering. I kinda feel like an SUV of sorts, definitely higher than my Monte Carlo. Rides a lot nicer too. Did I mention it is big? Now to do some fine-tuning of the install and I'll get some pictures...

                      Anyone interested in a ready to go with hand controls '06 Monte Carlo SS with a 5.3L V-8? I might be selling one soon

                        Get some pix up of the Monte too. You got great taste Andy.

                            Black stripes would look better on red....white goes with blue.

                              i like em but you said it best, they are big.

                              how's the traction control/rear end? does it hook up good or does it spin, bog or hesitate etc?

                                I just looked it up, and it is an R/T. There should be a badge offset on the grill with the R/T logo.
                                It is a badass car, though quite the beast. I believe it's 4,000lbs.
                                I have a red Mustang GT that's a similar shade, just not quite as bright. I'll post of pic of mine later.

                                Congrats, man. Awesome car!
