The last time I took it to the dealership was several years ago to get the skim number (so I could use a non-staged ECU for passing IL emissions). I did feel a little like a celebrity around the technicians eyeballing it. 😄

I wonder if that Wisconsin dealership is still trying to sell that low miles commemorative edition srt4 for 25k?

I still think it would be funny to go in front of the dealership owner's house in my commemorative at midnight and do burnouts, if for no other reason than to have him freak out and call the police thinking someone stole his precious overpriced car right out of the showroom LOL

...because who in their right minds pays for work at a dealership anyway...
I do. I have no tools and nowhere to do the work myself. I used to change the oil in my two Omnis, my Shadow and my 1gn Neon but lost the garage I used to use since my father passed away.

I have a 450hp one that is pretty reliable and is super fun, they’re so cheap now that I couldn’t understand why someone wouldn’t want one. In regards to the age group of owners for these cars, im 17 and daily it to high school. Everyone always wants me to two step in the lot lol. Srt’s are such a good car and it makes me wonder why people go with civics over these.
Congrats on being young and knowing how to drive a cool stick car! What is a “two step”?

Used to be a young owner. Now I'm an old(er) owner.

I now have a Focus RS, 04' WRX and a couple of S13s to play with but I'm not selling the old girl. Still as clean as when I bought it.

She might be too old though? ;)

Rumor has it that a commemorative edition was seen today pushing 140mph on a lonely stretch of highway near here.

Oddly enough that stretch of highway runs along the same route that I take to work every day.
I still have mine with 231,000 and it runs like a new one......Oil pressure switch on the engine is the biggest problem other that the 3rd gear syncho......I have had 5 clutches but the drag strip takes a toll on them......77 years old and still slamming the gears.

Nice. Yeah, that's why I don't track mine anymore. Southbend from Realtune still working fine...

Oddly enough I'm only on my 2nd clutch. Around 100k miles on it. Plenty of drag racing and autocross.

I'm still on my original clutch about 93k on it with about 3000 track day miles thrown in. No more tracking due to lack of transmission parts.

Ooops didn't mean to hijack this thready with a discussion over clutches.
In my case, I have a gimpy left foot and Stage 3 which together eat clutches especially on the strip.
But I do susppect performance clutch friction material may be softer material than stock.
So more likely to wear out sooner although they do grip better.
But it's just a passing thought....not intended to start an argument...

No arguments- this has been very interesting reading. In case anyone is interested, I'm on my second OEM clutch, replaced only because I thought it would be a good idea while I was doing business with thepowertowin at Laukemper's seven years ago. Still under 89K on my SRT.

It is getting harder to keep my now 19-year old SRT-4 on the road.
Mainly because all those little platic connectors are begining to crumble.
It's not too bad right now, nor has it ever been bad, but it's trending towards ass pain.
