    Hi all,

    Just wanted to drop a note and say hi. I sold a Gen III (04) last year when I had to make a cross-country move; however, I just picked an 05 Mamba (05/200) in western NC. I told myself "no more sports cars until you are more settled," but I just could not get this beauty out of my mind. So, trigger was pulled (to the great dissatisfaction of my girlfriend).

    Excellent condition in and out, 17k miles, stock except for K&N air intake + some exhaust work to minimize passenger compartment heat. Will be a garage queen, except for long drives to the NC mountains 1-2x a year (nothing better than driving a Viper on the Blue Ridge Parkway - I highly recommend!).

    Those in the Carolinas, where do you get yours serviced? I change my own oil, and fix minor stuff - however, it would be great to get some shop ideas. FYI, based in Raleigh.

    Thanks!
    - D

    You have one of the most experienced Viper Techs in the country, in your state; but, maybe not conveniently close: http://forums.viperclub.org/threads/670313-Viper-service-in-North-Carolina
