    Is it really the car the "V" is? My 04 was tight , don't understand the rattle stuff. I have heard guys complaining about them. I took a SRT for a test ride and didn't like it at all, handling, ride, breaks and so on. I will say the SRT-8 is a faster car though. Good luck with in any case.

    the 300c is nice if you wanna slap on some massive wheels, and cruise the town...But if and when you wanna whip around town in style, you will be more than welcomed to the group.

    I have some friends here that have the 300c and even the charger. Both are HEAVY...the poor little hemi doesnt stand a chance in hell...

    Enjoy your Automatic tranny and private windows...

    Good for you. I too bought an SRT-8, just the Jeep, not the 300. The whole Jeep/Chyrsler (never thought I would say it) is great. What a car, tight as can be, not a rattle of any kind, build quality and materials is FAR better, the features blow the V out of the water, the power is more (Jeep is quicker too IMHO). I can't say enough. Now granted, the SRT-8 (2008 model) has three years of innovations in it over the V but it is just such a better car. I would have to imagine that the 300 SRT-8 is the same way. Personally, I am done with Cadillac. My V went from love to dislike in a 2-3 month period as so many little things kept going wrong. It's in the dealer now for the third time in two months for another laundry list of stupid things.

    Good for you, enjoy it!!!

    I'd be very interested in knowing how you like the SRT8 compared to the cts-v. What year cts-v did you own and what year/model srt8 did you buy.
    I own a 2006 300c srt8 and am l waiting for the 2009 cts-v to come out. I also have a 07 ESV. Thanks Curtis

    I am interested in Jeremy's comments of the cts-v vs srt8, not the m5 vs srt8v.

    On the bright side, you can always make some spare change on your way home for those looking for a cab.
    JMWY, enjoy the new ride, thanks for buying American!

    Re: sold the v for a 300c srt-8

    wow! i thought different. i sold my 300C to get the V. i know it aint a SRT-8 but it still had the hemi. i wanted to get the V before the 300 but they had sold it when i went to buy it. i test drove the C and i jumped on it. i should have just waited because after a year i traded it and got my V. now im not going to lie, i do miss my 300 with the big chrome wheels, lowered, nice exhaust! just cruisin. it turned alot of heads. it was very roomy. BUT, my V is just so much funer to drive. last year i rode my bike all winter, i never really drove my 300. this year the bike comes out once a week. i really enjoy drivin the V. i guess it all really depends on the person!

    Then simply stop listening when he brings the M5 into the clip and you only get his take on the SRT8. Referencing the CTSV he looked at it back in 04 when it first came out, like most american cars he dogged it. However his issues were around the bells that sound because the doors is open, keys in the ignition, etc not how it performed or drove. They put it up againt an S4 at the track.
