And if I'm getting an SRT ANYTHING, Its going to be the Chally.And the inside of that Charger looks like a ******g Dodge Ram Ninja, stop defending that rubber and plastic interior. The only leather its got on it is the seats. That ain't much... A Lexus comes with more leather than that. And if you got money, the leather upgrade in the BMW is nothing to you. You won't even sweat the extra $1500 for it
.The BMW has much nicer features on the inside.
You're overcompensating for the Charger due to the fact that its the side of the argument you're defending. You're downplaying everything about the Bimmer, when in reality, all the Charger has is leather seats. What else does it have that would grab the average consumers attention?
It ain't like you going to open that Charger up on the street or on the track anyway, so why the **** not just get the BMW? Whens the last time you wen't to Laguna Seca Ninja? Whens the last time you used all that power? If you aren't hitting the track then whats the point? **** for the Price of it, I can get an R/T Charger and R/T Challenger and have the same damn driving experience.
Especially in NYC.. Where do you even have the room to haul *** in that thing? The smarter decision for you WOULD be to get the BMW OR the cheaper Charger and just saving money for some wheels etc.
Buying an SRT Charger in NYC is badge flossing. You ain't going to do nothing with it anyway. So you're pretty much just buying that **** for the SRT badge and the free MOPAR jacket...
Like I said, if you aren't hitting the track, or live somewhere with open roads to peel out on, the you're "badge flossing" in the SRT anyways. Its a NOVELTY CAR. Which is why there's an entire SRT brand. They are novelty whips for the genuine car enthusiast who is a loyal brand owner and wants more power to take full advantage of.
If you can't take advantage of it, buy the ******g R/T. The hell you need 470HP in NYC for? Unless you just want to stunt...
So if anyone says you're buying an entry level BMW just to have one and to badge floss, that **** goes two ways.
If you buy the top of the line SRT Charger, you're doing the same exact thing. Cause last time I checked, the maximum speed limit around my way is 65...
We all ******g badge floss. Get over yourselves.
-doing that would be a dumb consumer, why would i pay more for something that comes with less?
-you've obviously never sat in da SRT8 if you think all that is "rubber and plastic" this aint da first gen we're talking about.
-you can't even name a luxury feature that da base model 5 series had over da SRT8 charger, and yet you're talking about
da BMW has "nicer features?"
-so because some of da charger's raw power isn't gonna be used as often when being daily driven is some sort of excuse
that i should be robbed of that when paying for a vehicle? da BMW base 528i doesn't offer that AT ALL and is asking
for MORE money, for a car that DOES NOT have more luxury features then da charger.
imma go LINE by LINE and post EVERY SINGLE thing da charger has over da BMW 528i as far as standard features is concerned
then ya really gonna look like fools, leather being da obvious one.
in da mean time, here's a INDEPTH review.
Do you know what the difference between two apartment of identical size could come down to, even if both rooms are in decent buildings?
Hardwood floors, updated appliances, granite countertops, etc. make a HUGE difference when buying...
Thats the difference between the BMW and the Charger. So what if the rooms have walk in closets, just as many bathrooms, and central air as well. ***** that **** ain't luxury. Where I'm from, that **** is almost standard at this point when you're buying new apartments.
Sometimes visual aesthetics are a form luxury. Sitting in the BMW is a much nicer experience than that bare bones Charger. Like I said, the **** looks like a ******g Dodge Ram.
And why isn't the fact that you aren't going to use all that power a legit reason? You're sacrificing aesthetics and a visually nicer interior, 3 years of free maintenance, and an overall nicer more "luxurious" looking car for what? To pay damn near the same price for something that doesn't look as good, but has similar features and more HP? What if you don't CARE about horsepower? What if you aren't even going to use al lthat horsepower? All you're doing is driving to work, to the grocery store, to the mall, or out to dinner every now and then. Everyone is different, and buys cars for different reasons. Stop acting like your reason is the right reason. Don't call my statements excuses, when half the **** you've negated in this thread has been shrugged off with excuses. Or better yet, just not answered at all.
Being a dumb consumer would be taking car advice from a guy online who doesn't even own a car...
We're from two different worlds bruh. If you think leather seats is all it takes to have luxury, then I don't know what to tell you.
Which leads me back to asking, have you sat in both? Do you know what leatherette feels like? How much easier it is to upkeep? Do you know how many people lease/trade in these BMW's? And why the value isn't there anymore because the warranty is up when buying used, or the fact that there are more BMW's with 70K miles + on the market than SRT Chargers? Do you understand how customer service and experience goes a long way when purchasing a car? Have you bought a BMW? A Dodge? Do you know what the experience is like sitting down and actually being taken care of by the dealer? Do you know what its like to walk into a dealer and not like the mood/environment and be turned off, but then walk into another one and instantly feel comfortable? That goes a long way when purchasing a car.
Its just like the Apple vs Android argument. You can spit paper facts at me all day, but you don't know the EXPERIENCE of not only owning a product, but the customer service and connivence of knowing that if there's an issue, it'll be handled smoothly with no hassle.
That is a form of luxury bruh.
So miss me with your Google searches.
My family has owned countless BMW's and Benzes, Volvo Nissan, Honda, Ford, GMC, AND DODGE. I don't just have homies that drive these cars bruh, I drive them
I think I know what I'm talking about through EXPERIENCE. Not just what I read online.
Some things are just more important to different people. I don't care about all the **** you care about when buying a car. So I don't really care how you think its "badge flossing".
At the end of the day, you got hundreds of NIKE's and I ain't ever seen you in a sports/aethletic thread. Leads me to wonder... Are you badge flossing?
