I picked up my '12 SRT8 last Wednesday, and by then had received a 3M chip guard kit and Hawk ceramic brake pads.
I decided to install the chip guard myself, to save on the hefty installation costs. The kit was pretty easy to install on the front bumper, fenders, headlights, and grille. I ran into problems covering the mirrors and lower front spoiler. The 3M material fought me every time I tried to shape it over the curved surfaces. But after three or four tries, I finally got the mirrors & spoiler covered. Whew!
Here's a pic of the final install. You can't see the chip guard film or the edges until you get up real close, and that's a good thing.
I got the front & rear ceramic brake pads installed today, and thoroughly cleaned the brake calipers and the wheels. It was the first time I've seen the wheels that clean. Hopefully, they'll stay this way with the new pads.
