The only regret I have my friend, is not buying that black/gray GT500 sitting on the showroom floor the day I bought mine. With what I've dumped into mine, it would have taken me probably 3 years to pay out as much cash in monthly payment as I dropped over a period of a few weeks into mine. Not only would the cash outlay have been less of a "bomb", but I'd have a GT500, lol. Live and learn... When I'm done with this thing, I think I'm just going to buy a Corvette and have it over with. You can buy used C6's with < 10,000 miles on them for low 30s all day long around here.

Cars. It's a money thing. Those that have it will. If I were loaded I couldn't care less about my resale value and would just go pay cash for a new 5.0 GT.

But I'm not. So I'm "stuck" with this 300hp 3v. Oh well. Guess it could be worse. lol

Only reason I did not get GT500 was I'm using as daily driver and wanted muscle but best milage, why I did not get challenger I was drooling over.

My advice is if you're regretting the purchase, don't continue modding that thing at all. Right now you can have it back to nearly stock in < 1 hour. I wish I could say the same for mine, lol. Its a great time to buy, why not trade it for a Challenger before the end of the year?

I don't want anyone to get me wrong from my first post on here. I do love the '10 but this is my first muscle car and owning a GT was a dream of mine, I bought an '10 because usually, they don't do huge upgrades (from my experience) until the next redesign. I know they may up the HP a little here, or tweek the interior there. But toally swapping out the drive train?

Also I went into my dealer and told him about the rumors of the 5.0 and he said theay they haven't heard anything and that there is always rumors about the 5.0

I was looking forward to owning the car a year or so before it was out classed by an upgrade.

I bought it in november, its not even january and.. oops! LOL.
