Okay, i have to step up to the plate for this lowball i gues....

How can Dodge be retarded just because the same stereo can be gotten in the neon as in a viper.... that isn't a justification at all. that's a bloody awful opinion of a manufacturer...

I'm sure that if ford or gmc had a car like the viper, you could probably find the same stereo in it as a cavvy, or stang...

Until the day that they have a car in MASS production, that can rival the viper, please be so kind as to shut the hell up.


Besides, if you have the money for a goddamned Viper, i'm sure you have a few grand lying around for a sweet aftermarket system. It's a lot less cost then having Dodge put one in the car, as the stock cd player is 800$ CAD, so you can only imagine how much it would cost to have a much nicer stereo. Therefore, it really doesn't have anything to do with the quality of the vehicle, it's cost reduction.






I will admit that it was kind of retarded for the Charger to be made a 4 door...but hopefully the remade Challenger will come in a two door coupe model..

Good point, Ever hear the new C6 corvette's sound setup? Gawd it's awful. Even the shitty Mach 1000 in the Mustang sounds better

People don't want to change their headunits anymore. People come in to BB all the time and want us to custom make them a kit that matches their silver interior like the stock one does. So when they find out how much it will cost they MAYBE switch out the speakers, put a amp in thats too powerful and picks us engine noise, and gets a set of dual subs and box that sound shitty as it is.Then hear it all and get mad at us b/c only the treble and bass can be adjusted and the quality of the music sounds so bad. People are so stupid they piss me off

And oomba. Are you sure they arn't speaking of a stock viper? That its not an option to upgrade the sound system in it?

A lot of the problem not only lies in people but in the actual car manufacturers themselves. No longer can you easily take out the stock HU and replace it. You have to buy some crazy converter to make it flush mount right and it alone costs a $100 or more.

Yeah you're right, it should have 2 DVD players, Xbox, 1000CD changers, 8subs and everything else that makes a car look more expensive

Who needs all these extras when you have a stonking big engine?

I'm not saying put lame shit in the car like an Xbox. How about, I dunno, a 5 cd changer.

Because that's just about as lame as an Xbox. Anyways a CD player is the last thing you think about when buying a Viper.

Wait...just the radio unit is the same, or is that including the speakers?...But yeah, like Fudge said, when you're driving a $90K car, that's the last thing you should care about...you're probably going to be going so fast that you couldn't hear the stereo anyhow...unless you've got a big system...

Then again, they might keep the Neon systems because they do not want to add extra weight to the car, thus keeping the speed and hadling up...
