I wont bother you with the before pix, but I will throw up the results of a very hard day.

Step 1: Wash with Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo

Step 2: Clay with Meguiars Smooth Surface Clay kit (Did not need a very aggressive clay)

Step 3: Wash again with Shampoo

Step 4: Polish with Meguiar's Ultimate Compound

Step 5: Glaze with Meguiar's #7 Show Car Mirror Glaze

Step 6: Seal with JetSeal 109

Step 7: Wax with Meguiar's #26 Yellow Carnuba Wax

No troubles, Getting 17 city, 22 hwy with a light foot. heavy foot is 11/20. Engine is the 4.7L Powertech, 310HP/330ft-lbs.

Yeah, that's not bad at all! I'm actually hopeful for Dodge. I would love the idea of Dodge emerging from the ashes of Detroit as the new leader in american made autos. I like what they have done with the new Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and although I haven't been up close on the 300 yet, it looks like it's going that way also. Even though these are still ancient chassis now and I would still give them a few more years to develop all new models under Fiat and see how the quality holds up, I have to say that for the first time since the introduction of the new Ram, I like the new look, but even more importantly, the interior is starting to come together as well, the suspension upgrades are well past due, but atleast it's there now. I would bet in the next couple years Fiat will introduce all new engine platforms too. FINALLY!!! HOPE!!!!! LOL!!!!!

Good choice on the 4.7 liter btw.

Yah, I am loving it. I avg 18mpg on my commute if I keep my foot out of it. If you have alot of short distance stop sign driving on your commute, forget it, it drops almost immediately to 11-13. but in steady city traffic, outside of downtown where the lights are farther apart, you are looking at around 16-18. thats really quite good for a rig weighing in at 5,520 lbs.

No, the diablochip is performance tuned. I put it on stock tune to get best mileage.
