Finally Got mine

Hello,

Just wanted to tell you guys that I finally got mine and that I am very pleased with the high degree of quality of the car. Just sad it isn't louder when you turn it on. All the other ones I am used to (ML63, Cayenne Turbo, X5M and sorts) have a better starting tone. Oh and the antenna... first time I walked up to the car at the dealers I said "Where is the remote control" as it looks like an RC car with that huge antenna.

Else wise... if you see a Black SRT8 in downtown Boston, likelihood it is mine is pretty high... there is supposed to be more than 22 in MA, haven't seen a single other one though.

Thanks to Milous for all the tracking, the dealer was jealous that I knew more than he did.

Re: Finally Got mine

I thought I've read the Sharkfin reception is hit or miss

The only thing difficult to the install, even with a ladder was reaching the antenna with a screwdriver - sort of awkward. It went well though. I don't notice any changes in the quality of reception. The reception is very good.
