Congrats and enjoy the new toy!
I am going to need to talk to you about it after you have some more drive time. I am looking at adding a Viper to the collection.

In my experience, most people don’t give them basic respect and it costs them. If you bring pictures and are nicely dressed, they tend to give you a warning and send you on your way. All you have to lose is about a half hour of your time. They stop hearing complaints around 3:30 or 4:00. Good Luck!
Thanks for the advice! I stopped by today, apparently you have to schedule the hearing first but they should be mailing me with a date to come in.

I'd be more than happy to I've put on about 800 miles so far... there is about an inch thick of grime coating the car esp. the wheels. They are so filthy they look like gunmetal from a distance. The streak is where I ran my finger through

As long as you are not going to track the car, I suggest EBC Green brake pads, otherwise the brake dust on Vipers can be brutal.

Very nice car. I had a silver 03 srt. A few recommendations based off close to 100,000 miles seat time....get rid of the run flats if they are still on the car. As well, invest in a short throw kit or even just an MGW shifter. Makes a world of difference for every day driveability. I ran belanger headers, random tech hi flows and corsa track exhaust. A little loud but a great combination.
A good parts supplier is JonB at Partsrack and DC Performance in California.

How is the leg room in the Gen III compared to the Gen II? I went to buy a Gen II cash in hand, but at 6'3" - it just didn't work. I was very sad as I also have been wanting one all my life.

Thanks JP! I had my hearing today and he let me off because I had just purchased the car. Awesome!
