Something Wicked This Way Comes

2006 Dodge Charger SRT-8 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)
The beauty of modern engineering is that car manufacturers can now produce a vehicle such as the SRT8. A car that blends exceptional civility with very uncivilised performance. I just purchased this car a week ago. Brought it home without drama in 10 below weather, with the roads covered in ice. The tires on this monster are Goodyear F1's! Started it without a hitch in the same weather the next morning. Again, no drama. And no engine block heater either. That is not even on the option sheet for the SRT8. Not even here in Canada. Warmed the car up and drove to work. Found a patch of dry road on the way. No traffic. Dropped the hammer. Big drama! Thanks DC!
The Hemi. The exceptionally comfortable heated seats and mirrors. The ESP and traction control is flawless so far. Room for four adults in total comfort. Brick wall brakes. Very good visibility considering the short windows. HVAC controls easy to use (no DVD/GPS nav system). Thick steering wheel.
Improve the quality of the interior plastics. They are too cheap for a car like this. A light in the engine bay would be nice as well. Block heater for us Canaucks and our friends in the Northern US perhaps? Back up sensor system or even better, a camera so my wife can back the car (shes short).
