Brand New, its fun, jury is still out

I have the Road and Track edition for 09. Lots of upgrades, but the 10 extra horse power and the Ricaaro style seats with red stitching and badging stands out the most. 20 inch chrome rims are a big hit as well with my friends. The engine is very responsive, and the ESP switch is nice when you want to burn out. I am impressed with the acceleration, although a rolling start and manual transmission mode will give you the best chance at a light to light drag. The engine performs the best in my opinion from 75 to 120. It really moves. It is very quiet in the cabin and I wish the engine would bark a little more from the factory. It does have a 8 to 4 cyl. feature for fuel consumption
The Road and Track package is great. The seats are night and day from the standard seats. The ability to shift manually is fun and the upgraded stereo system is awesome. It connects with your phone through bluetooth and is a lifesaver in Ca. where we have to have hands free. The Hemi is the star
The dash is a bit plain. It should have a stick option with the Hemi. And I would love to be able to turn off the 8 to 4 cylinder fuel saver. I understand if you put aftermarket pipes on with this option, it sounds terrible when it shifts to four cylinders. I love the sound of a V8, not a four.
