OMG, I can't stand this car. Everybody who wants one is the same. Buy it. Put 22"s on it. That's it. So now, every 300C still looks the same, cuz everyone has rims. But they want to be different, stand out in the crowd. yet they do what everyone else is doing to the cars. It annoys me as well as confuses me.

They are all over N.J. Tons of them. So long since I've seen one with the standard grille, I forgot what it looks like. Custom grilles (like 4 different designs) huge tire & chrome rims, chromed "B" & "C" pillars, & smoked dark glass sides & rear & a little lip spoiler on the deck lid. A few I've seen with a lowering kit, too. I liked them at first, now tired of them. A "me-too" car.
Up in Canada they make a wagon version (a la the Dodge Magnum) now THAT I wouldn't mind, as it's different here in the USA !



WE IN AMERICA CAN'T HAVE THIS !!!

How much different could it be??? I thought they were the same in both countries?

I don't really think these cars are a fad, I think they are still doing quite well in sales. I think they will be around for a lont time. I still prefer the Charger, and one of our dealerships now has a "GoMango" Charger R/T Daytona with 350 hp. I wouldn't mind it, but of course it's no STS for luxury, etc.

The car I'm sick and tired of is the pt Cruiser, then Chevy had to go and copy it! :yawn:

Although it was a fad, much like the PT Cruiser, it showed that Chrysler had come a LONG way from making K cars.:devil: Now they're considered to be quite upscale i understand with that Crossfire thing and the 300C.

I still wouldn't buy a MOPAR though.;) Give me a Cadillac CTS over that thing any day.:D Black with chrome rims, beige leather interior, and t.v.'s in the headrests. Now THAT would be luxury...

THere are a lot of 300's here in san diego, Especially when you head down to the mission alley area, they are a dime a dozen.

The 300 and the magnum front ends are interchangeable - no large deal to "make" a 300 wagon, if you have the raw material,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

There are so many 300s around here you'd think Chrysler was giving them away. You can bearly tell the difference between the cheap one that anybody can afford from the expensive one that only people who've earned a good living can afford. That's the only mistake Chrysler made with this car - in MY opinion. However, they're surely loving all the sales..

I test drove the "Limited" and was VERY impressed with this vehicle.. To me, it's a variation of the Lincoln Town Car being that it's very big, roomy, soft-riding and quiet. Both cars have a very unique look as well - but the 300C is more unique...

I don't think this car is a fad.. I think Chrysler did a great job with this vehicle.. It SHOULD be a Cadillac...

I actually considered buying one of the 300 SRT-8 cars this summer. The first thing that turned me off were the ignorant sales people. I couldn't find one "salesman" that knew more about the vehicle than I did....but they were all too eager to order me one. How can you possibly sell anything you know little or nothing about?

The second thing that turned me off was the uncomfortable seats, and the cheap looking interior. C&D editors rave about how fast the SRT-8 is but they are always disgusted about how rough riding it is.

When I was in Vegas a week ago there were 300s everywere. Half of the newer taxis were 300s also, which can't do much to help the resale value of those cars. I did see a black 300C that has 22s on it and dark tinted windows that looked really good. It's a good looking car, but I'll stick with my Lade for now.

If you ever get to see one that's a limousine, you'll flip. It's a car that looks better & better the loooooonger it gets. There's a white "bridal" limo in these parts that is just breathtaking! Chromed wheels and tinted windows, and Vogue whitewalls on it. Moonroof over the rear seating area.

I like them, but I'm sticking with my Town Car Limited for now.

on that logic it is the same with Escalades. everyone puts 24s or 26s on them and sound systems. these 300Cs are nice, i dont know why the OP wouldnt have got one.

For the kind of money u need to get a 300C or a 300C SRT-8, you could easily buy a Fleetwood Brougham with the LT1, and do the LT4 conversion kit for about $3000, to get around 425hp. And then on top of that, I believe that there is a supercharged available for the Impala SS LT1, which they say will give you half the horsepower you already have. Which means on a stock LT1, you will have around 390hp. I believe thats also around $3,000. Now if you can do both of these kits together, (which im not sure you can) you can get around 640hp for around $6000. Now if you get a really nice 94-96 Fleetwood Brougham for $8-9k, you can have a 630hp Cadillac for under $20,000!!!!!! But im not sure if the 4L60-E or the differential can handle 630hp. But wow that would be cool!
