January of '10 I had never heard of the SRT8, until one night a kid rolled up to hooter's casino in one. I was very drunk at the time and went straight home to watch YouTube videos and research the vehicle. I had just test drove an '09 C63 AMG, and an '09 M3 as I was looking for a fun car. I woke in the morning and went for a test drive in an '08 that was on the lot for $43,000. I was hooked! I ended up finding the '10 which was just built 12 days prior and walked out the door for $41,500. I liked the M3, I really liked the AMG, but being 6'5" tall and 250 lbs the Jeep just fit me better. Also I think the Jeep looks more unique. The AWD and torque delivery is phenomenal in these rigs and being I live in rainy Seattle actually being able to use the power was a real benefit.
Funny thing about the Jeep, it's the retiree's who notice it more than anything. I don't know if that's a good thing or not? Maybe old farts (50+) just have good taste!!
