    [Black with cream/charcoal interior - Pretty quick, roomy, comfortable, built like a vault, devoid of any flimsy or overtly cheap interior pieces, silent at 80MPH, firm comfy seats, handles well (though it does roll a little), excellent brakes, good steering feel (though heavy), and the exhaust note could be a bit sportier/louder, pretty versatile overall]

    And it was good. :eek3:

    I took a SXT out first, performance was fine really. But the RT does look better with the chromed headlamps, larger wheels, and chromed grille strips. Interestingly, the Magnum is the only car I can think of that comes with factory tinted rear windows too.

    People gawked at both of them too. :o

    That's right, they convinced the Feds it's a light truck/SUV.

    I heard the rear visability was the only problem with it.

    :eek3: :bowdown: I love heavy steering - I feel like I can be much more controlling with my inputs and predict what the car is going to do.
