Wow, seems everyone has lambo-doors these days...

Doesn't make me stop wanting one...Are the kits cheaper or something?

The Dodge Charger isn't that great looking either. Its all hype to me. Nothing below the skin other than a stone-age V8. Platform sharing. Is there Quailty?

Saw a black magnum r/t today by my job with gloss black 20's w/ chrome lip. jaw droppingly hot. may be my next consideration. Must be lowered though, they sit too high.

Dodge and Chrysler did a tour in the summer across Canada where you could test drive their entire fleet on an autocross course except pretty much the Viper. But, as much as the 300 and Magnum looked nice and had the powerful V8s, I was very surprised to discover that the rides were terribly soft and they handled like absolute boats...

The ghosted flame job is quite nice. That looks like something Chip Foose would have thought to include. Otherwise, it's still just a Magnum.

Lambo doors NEVER belong on Sedans.........the money would be far better spent making the rear doors suicide.......

Yep - one of my partners just leased one; the verdict back from the mail room (the most acute judges of all of the partner's cars) is that it's a boat. For a large-car style, I think it has clean lines, though - really good exercise on the "large-car" theme (as compared to the new Ford 500, which is really lame).

The charger IMHO is a great looking car. Now, it should not be called a charger cuz it doesnt hold true to its roots.... And as for the mangnum, its diffrent yes, but not ugly.

not feelin the charger, its like knowing a someone who has a twin your whole life then meeting the identical twin, the identical twin will always look retarded.
besides, the chrysler 300C is just beautiful from the outside, with 22" wheels.

I like the direction Dodge is going with their cars. I got into a Magnum and that thing is huge. Even the SXT has decent power and it's not as pricey and gas guzzling as the R/T. I was worried about the handling as even my boaty Accord will probably handle better.

Well, if I was to sum the car up:

Looks = pretty good
Power = decent
Handling = gawd-awful
