    I wanted to thank this forum for all the valuable research I used to finally purchase a Viper. Great forum!

    2005 13,500 miles, thus far no mods. Considering adding borla or corsa exhaust. Car is an absolute beast makes my previous car C63 AMG feel slow.

    Congratulations Mace!! Beautiful color and low miles to boot!! Watch out for the cold weather - the tires harden up like hockey pucks.

    Congratulations! Welcome to the club - where abouts in MD are
    you located? We have a very close knit region, and I am sure
    there is someone nearby who can assist with any questions, ect...
    I drive WAY too fast to be worried about cholesterol.

    Yup, they make most everything else feel slow. You should know this if you've been poking around here but - check the tires, if they're the original runflats you'll want that to be the first thing you change. If/when you do exhaust, budget for high flow cats also so you can do the job once. Your feet will thank you.

    I second that, some Gen3 owners were notorious for leaving
    run-flats on for YEARS after buying them. Good soft rubber
    is an absolute must on a car this high-strung...

    Congrats, what a great way to start the year, you will not regret it! You also bring up a great point, the value of the asset of the VCA forums as the information shared over the years is invaluable. I recently came across a poll from over 3 years ago comparing which car would be more collectible the 2010 Final Edition or the 2010 Limited Edition SSG ACR in which I purchased, the FE got the nod, but I enjoyed reading the comments by all of the posters. Good tuff, enjoy the car Mace66!!!

    I'm in the process of buying an '09 ACR from a dealer in Chicago, and having it shipped here. I would really like to see one in person around here first (I live in Lothian, MD, about five miles south of Upper Marlboro), and I'm thinking of going to a dealer in Stafford, Virginia, tomorrow, to look an an '09 they have for sale. Hopefully they will let me test drive it.

    Anyone? Lol If I pick up an '09 ACR next week it would be nice to know other Viper owners close by.

    That's not far at all. You're bound to see me on route 4 or 301. I don't see any other vipers often at all in the area.

    I can't even remember the last time I saw a Viper on Rt 4, much less anywhere in the DC area.
