    The side aero stuff looks confused.

    That's funny about the wheels.

    Yeah, It hit me after using the iPhone app "CarBuzz" this morning and seeing the Charger. On my Comp I had the Veyron pic on my desktop. I was like... um hey...

    They're not 100% knock-offs of the bugatti wheels (the bugatti wheels have 5 black spokes in between the alloy 10 spoke pairs) but close enough. I cross-posted this on a few other forums and it was news to them so... I guess I was the only one that caught it. :D

    I don't like it...

    :thumbsdown:

    I never believed a Charger should have four doors anyway.

    You nailed it!

    The Charger is too "ricey" for my tastes, and the 300 is too "blingy". Between the two though, I'll take the 300.

    Screw the styling, it's a Chrysler! No matter how nice or crappy it looks it's still going to need a trainy at 60k miles.

    theyre taking the "american" out of the styling.
    its very euro/import looking.

    although times change and you gotta look to the future, its still not very appealing to me personally.

    The styling is OK, I just can't get excited about anything Chrysler. I hope they can turn it around, for the sake of Detroit if nothing else.

    I don't care if it's a Chrysler or not. Those numbers are pretty damned impressive.

    I don't get all the Chrysler hate. I'd take this over a Camaro or a Mustang. I'd take the Challenger over them all to.

    The Challenger is a boat.

    I'm a Mopar guy. However, I don't like the cars that Chrysler makes except for the Viper. Give me a Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango, or RAM 1500.

    I do love my Jeep Patriot. I didn't buy it thinking it would be a Wrangler, but it's a great utilitarian vehicle nonetheless.

    They just build junk, that's all. Their reliability numbers are horrible, and every Chrysler I've driven in the last 10 years was awful. I wouldn't mind a Charger, but I would buy it knowing full well that I'd more than likely be making a major repair far sooner than I would with a Mustang or Camaro.
