I am a Jacksonville local and I am looking into the near future of buying a challenger. I work for Mopar actually but would like to hear from you guys to help me make the best choice. I will only get a 5.7 manual I would consider a 6.1 but should I stay with the 5.7? But some basic questions like what are some things I should consider? And how to approach obtaining one. Even what year to try and strive for. I am looking for a blue one but I like more of an indigo blue more then anything I know of the b5 and jazz blue and not sure if I like those colors. Possibly a destroyer grey because I would do red interior if I did that. I will probably get a used one with low miles. Anyway I appreciate any and all ideas and suggestions I want my first choice to be the best and right choice. Have a great day everyone.

Destroyer Grey on black with red interior would be a sweet looking challenger. As far as cubic inches, that's in the eye of the beholder, the speed limit on public roads wont change and 99% of the only people you will impress by that number are other dudes. (There's a couple exceptions lady's). Finding a model with active exhaust will save you a few dollars as well.

Welcome to the Challenger ForumZ from the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

As mentioned, budget comes first. 5.7L keeps you away from the higher octanes $.$$ and probably better insurance rates.:D

Greetings from the Conch Republic!

With a 6.1, you are limited to 2008-2010 model years. The 5.7 was available for all models years from 2009 up. Like others said, figure out your budget. Then make o list of the "must" options and the "would like" options. Don't be afraid to expand your search outside of your area. That perfect match might be 1000 miles away, but the drive home will be a blast!
