Congrats! You will not second guess the decision. As others have said, it is a great DD, with snow tires and snow mode grabs like tiger I bad weather and has all the luxuries of a much much more expensive super SUV. Brings a smile to my face every time I get in....

Enjoy and be careful of the mod bug as once it bites, it is hard to get rid of

Thanks gents. It's been a rush getting a new vehicle but I'm pretty pumped to have her.

Speaking of the mod bug. Here's a pic or two of my RS:





I hope it's not as bad on the SRT but I'm not holding my breath!

Re: New guy here...

good looking RS. I considered getting one a few years back. I was thinking the SRT would stay stock for a little while but 2 weeks in and mods are already showing up via UPS/FedEX... I just think about it like this.... there are worse things to spend money on....

haha, I like the way you think!

Well, shitty first few days of ownership as I had a God awful rattle from the glove box area. Took her in today to get it figured out and of course they're backed up and won't get to it until tomorrow...

That sucks. A few things that you can check are a label behind the glovebox and on mine the wiring under the passenger seat was not connected securely and was rattling on the bottom of the Seat.

Re: New guy here...

I realize you already purchased but I thought I'd give my story, too.

I've been a car guy for as long as I could drive. Always had something sporty. In the not so far past, I started wanting something more roomy and more practical so I got our of cars for a short while and bought a Ford F-150 Platinum pick up with the Ecoboost. It was a great truck. No problems, comfortable as heck, plenty of luxury and relatively good performance. I started missing the horsepower and sound of a big V8 and considered selling the truck to buy something like a Corvette, Camaro, Challenger, etc. and a cheap beater to drive daily. I talked myself out of that because I didn't want to deal with two vehicles worth of maintenance, insurance, tags, parking at home, etc. and I knew I wouldn't be happy driving a clunker on a daily basis.

I started looking around at something sporty, roomy and practical that I could drive every day and not be afraid to park at the parking lot where I work without drawing TOO much attention to itself. I had just about settled on an Audi SQ5 before I realized the SRT GC would be perfect for my situation.

After that, it took about a week before I found a deal I couldn't pass up on a 2014 and I haven't looked back since. It's a great vehicle.
