I know in a few earlier posts there was discussion of some not being equipped with the rear center LEDs. If you do not have them and want them, there is a Mopar kit coming out I am assuming this month. Also illuminated side mirrors. The LED kit looks like a layman install, but the mirrors do not. There is some wiring and dash disassembly involved with the mirrors. There was no mention of dealer having to enable the LEDs in the BCM. It may be plug & play.

A friend of mine has a 67 Barracuda with a 440ci Hemi, but is started life as a 426 and dyno'd over 800hp with a single carb, It now has a nice 2x4 intake and makes more power!!



Back on topic, here is one that I looked at the other day. I would buy one, but our 09 Caliber only has 29K on it and a lifetime powertrain warranty.

Yeah, they kinda keep things old school around there. They are one of the Dodge only dealers left I think. No Jeep or Chrysler.

I would recommend you to avoid Chrome wheel. Those cladding start to corode and peel after a few years. there are some gun metal colored wheel that looks pretty nice.

Well, regarding the Lifetime power train waranty, you know you can still buy it for little more money thru Chrysler, right? you can even get Mopar Life Time bumper to bumper waranty. and Price is negotiable.

Tho, your Caliber will probably be a more reliable car, We sold a lot of Darts since they came out, I am alrdy seeing a few Eletrical nightmare on these Darts. They are European car afterall...

However, I fell in love with the new Dart, I will very tempted to retire my 95 Toyota Corolla.

Hey TNtech, My wife and I just purchased a Dart Limited that did not come equipped with the race track lights... how much will the kit be?

The premium limited rims are not chrome. They are actually just polished aluminum.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Sometimes I don't see my updates.

I don't know yet. The October monthly Chrysler info session states "this month". I do know we get a lot of calls about the lights...if a kit is coming,if they can be enabled, etc. I will let you know if you don't find out first.

Got one yesterday for my wife. We traded-in her 2007 PT cruiser convertable for an SXT model. So far she loves it. I will try to post-up some pics tomorrow. So far we are getting 33 MPG on the 1.4 turbo!
