It seems in just the past few months that I am seeing more and more SXT/RT models everywhere sporting the short wing and chrome duel exhuast tips. I know within moments that its not an SRT4, but most of my less intrested friends don't realize the differences as quickly.

It hit home the other day when a couple different people I know came up to me and said "I have been seeing alot of cars like you used to have buzzing around"
Since I still have seen relatively few actual SRT4's I quized them about the wing height and front nose and I/C. Turns out they are problably just running into a flood of SRT4 wanabees, but the problem is they think they are all the same.

I think Dodge has done the SRT4 community a disservice by allowing the regular Neon to adopt the aggresive SRT4 look, its to difficult to tell apart for the casula observer.........

Anyone know the production numbers on the Neon RT and or SXT?

I count traffic...and sometimes I have to sit at an intersection and count the # of cars making turns and straight throughs......and every neon that goes by my co-worker is like "look an SRT-4" he knows the difference...he just says it cuz he thinks it pisses me off.....and here in tampa theres neons EVERYWHERE

it looks like a catfish with a hood scoop with that front end. i dont mind that they're releasing them, makes the SRT-4 alot less hunted and it could cause a mix up for a moderate car guy.

Yah i hear that Englaived, ive actually resorted to honking at older woman driving Sxt's and asking if they would trade there wing for mine, all i get in return is a weird stare and a drive off ... lol..... if i dont find anyone ill probably just say fook it and buy a some sxt spoiler off ebay or some shit.

Wow when they do start all that, its gonna be horrible. I already hate it when my friends are like look Tim its your car I'm like no and I have to school them on the diffeence between neons and srt4s. It will be even worse with this srt4 look a like package. Thanks Tim

:scratchhe How so, it looks pretty much the same for exception of the rims, intercoooler and paint around the fog lights.

No low lip on the front end, no rocker panel stick-ons... the rear doesnt hang as much.. probably no cutout for exhaust so you could have a nice single pipe without it looking goofy or doing body mods.

To me the "ruining" comes from the fact that they are no longer so unique or appear rarely seen.

It totally sucks to have to explain to every Tom, Dick, and Harry that "my neon is the real SRT4, the fast one.........". To the average motorist the little SRT's are now buzzing around everywhere . :buah:
