    2005 13,500 miles, thus far no mods. Considering adding borla or corsa exhaust. Car is an absolute beast makes my previous car C63 AMG feel slow.

    :2tu:Congratulations Mace!! Beautiful color and low miles to boot!! Watch out for the cold weather - the tires harden up like hockey pucks.

    Congratulations! Welcome to the club - where abouts in MD are

    Yup, they make most everything else feel slow. You should know this if you've been poking around here but - check the tires, if they're the original runflats you'll want that to be the first thing you change. If/when you do exhaust, budget for high flow cats also so you can do the job once. Your feet will thank you.

    I second that, some Gen3 owners were notorious for leaving
    run-flats on for YEARS after buying them. Good soft rubber
    is an absolute must on a car this high-strung...

    Congrats, what a great way to start the year, you will not regret it! You also bring up a great point, the value of the asset of the VCA forums as the information shared over the years is invaluable. I recently came across a poll from over 3 years ago comparing which car would be more collectible the 2010 Final Edition or the 2010 Limited Edition SSG ACR in which I purchased, the FE got the nod, but I enjoyed reading the comments by all of the posters. Good tuff, enjoy the car Mace66!!!

    I'm in the process of buying an '09 ACR from a dealer in Chicago, and having it shipped here. I would really like to see one in person around here first (I live in Lothian, MD, about five miles south of Upper Marlboro), and I'm thinking of going to a dealer in Stafford, Virginia, tomorrow, to look an an '09 they have for sale. Hopefully they will let me test drive it.

    Anyone? Lol If I pick up an '09 ACR next week it would be nice to know other Viper owners close by.

    That's not far at all. You're bound to see me on route 4 or 301. I don't see any other vipers often at all in the area.

    I can't even remember the last time I saw a Viper on Rt 4, much less anywhere in the DC area.
