    To sell or not to sell

    A Viper with 6,000 miles will not sell for much more than a Viper with 12,000 miles. Enjoy your car.

    sooo... if 500 HP is not enough...

    Adding a Paxton will still give you that great drivability down low, but when you get the revs up, you will have all the Horsepower you can handle. Great fun for reasonable cost. If you keep the standard (almost 800 hp) tune, they are super reliable and only need more frequent oil changes.

    member again, 2nd Viper..

    If your Viper has the 11 year old run flats, that could be a reason for the wandering. Putting on a fresh set of Pilot SuperSports will transform the ride and handling.

    Gen 5 viper value retention after 2017 brand discontinuing

    Predict that for a short while, Vipers will suffer at resale, simply because so many are on the market, and buyers can pick off the weakest sellers. As the supply is reduced, the prices will then rise dramatically, as there will be fewer available.

    Whats your opinion.. should the Viper go mid engine?

    Think the ultimate solution for Viper, would be for it to become the stand alone ultra high performance brand for Chrysler. Think a updated vehicle like the current Viper, a mid-engine ultra car, a exotic and high output small two door coupe alongside a similar 4door hot hatch. One sports...

    Moderators Promise

    One problem is that many posters have an agenda to cause damage. Helpful posts need to be encouraged, but Trolls and others do their damage under the guise of misguided PC.

    WTB Gen2 GTS - Need advice for a potential California Viper owner

    Out of state Vipers, with over 7,500 miles on them are pretty easy to bring into California. Just need a visual inspection and they take down the VIN to make sure it is not stolen or has defective title. I am in San Diego, and owned a Gen II. If you find one locally, l would be happy to look it...

    Club is here two stay II

    I kinda like Free. Often provides a fresh perspective, along with a unique sense of humor. Feel differently about those that only post to stir up trouble and offer no solutions. Think there is a special place in **** for them.

    What you guys think 2004 vs 2009 srt10?

    I had an 03 and 09. The 09 was a far better car, and sold it with 50,000 miles. It held up well over those miles. For my money, I would go with the 08. It has a stronger motor, stronger transmission, much better rear end and all around it was better built. Biggest change I made was upgrading...
