Road it to work for the first time :)
Similar size engine to my Kia.
I guess that makes it a little whizzier than a push bike to work.

Drove it!! To the season closer.
Such an impressive car. Started the day with range showing 194 miles for a round trip of 188. Used Eco mode the entire way which allows cylinder shutdown. I will know the MPG for this tank when I fill it but I parked back at with more 1/4 left and over 50 miles of range left!!
Comfortable, fast with all the gizmos and no shortage of admirers no matter where you go.
I’ve done a 1000miles now since I bought it for the cars current total of 2300 now so I’ll change the oil before winter and get it serviced in the spring.
Driving it puts a huge smile on my face. The 09 did too but this is borderline a grin!!

And the passenger has a smile always too - have you seen my Sebring? Wonder why not! It’s because I just love being out in the Challenger :) :).

Are your heads as heavy as Malc's? He mentioned it was tough manovering them.
Sounds like you have made some great progress.
