Which year WK SRT8 to buy?
 
I figured that this would be the best place to post this question. Which year (2006-2010) would be the best to buy? I have seen advertised a 2006-$22K and a 2010-$38K. Let's say if mileage WAS equal and price wasn't a factor, which would you purchase. Do the newer models get progressively better? Thanks for any input.:thumbsup:

I'm sure the SRT8 guys will pinch in, but the 2010 should be better off overall. Exterior modifications like OEM projectors and other visual modifications. I'm not sure about the performance - the experts will add on to that. Hope this helps.

2008 was the year with the most changes/upgrades so I would choose the best deal you can find on an '08-'10. The link below will show you all of the changes from 2006-2010:

As the 2 above said 08-10. 09-10 command a premium though. They also have the EVIC system, which the 08 did not come with. Other than that the differences are essentially negligible.

I have a 2009. I LOVE the interior of the '08+. The black leather, with extra leather wrapped options, and upgraded nav unit.

Definitely go '08+ if you can afford it.

For what it's worth, there were many 2010's with random options. Not many "fully loaded" I've even seen a 2010 without a nav screen. Your best bet at a fully loaded SRT is a 2009.

I agree 08+ the interior is worth it. Just wait on a good deal.

09-10 nicer exterior and interior, red brembos, mygig, evic options, more leather, etc
