    Greetings! I'm planning to buy a Gen IV in the near future and have been scrubbing this forum looking to educate myself about what I'm getting into. I'm a long-time hotrodder with experience building and driving muscle cars with just a little too much power. Now I'd like to get into something modern but still have that raw and "uh, oh--what have I done" feeling. The Viper seems to fit the bill. I'm a long-time subscriber to all the usual enthusiast magazines so I know what the journalists have said over the years.

    Now, I'm interested to hear what you owners have to say about the GEN IV coupes--what's great, what's not so great, what to look out for when shopping, what to expect to fix and so on; the good, the bad and the ugly. Any feedback will be very much appreciated!

    Thank You!

    Welcome, if you like to mod your cars a Gen 3 is a better choice if not the gen 4.

    Thanks, Cubican. What's the reason that the Gen 3 is better for modding than Gen 4?
