      My Factory Ordered Granite Crystal GT

      Hey everyone. Long time Mopar fan, Jeep owner, and Mopar technician.

      I work at a Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealer in Northern California. Became interested in the Darts, and needed a DD.

      I'm a jeep guy, and my Cherokee is really no longer suited to daily driving. Horrible mpg, and it has the handling prowess of a locomotive.

      I had a Grand Cherokee also, which I was using as a dd, but the mpg was awful also. Sold it, and used it on a down payment for a 2015 Dart GT.

      I ordered it though my work, waited 8 weeks, and it finally showed up.

      2015 GT
      Granite Crystal, Black, Nappa red leather.
      2.4l, 6 speed manual.
      Options were- Sun and Sound group (sun roof, 9 speaker Alpine System), Hyper Black wheels and a spare tire.

      Fresh off the truck!

      Since I am a technician, I was able to do the Pre-delivery inspection on my own car. Pretty rad.

      Wrappers on everything!

      And check out the mileage!

      All in all, I love this thing. Power is great, mpg is fantastic, and I am already doing a few little things to make it better.

      More updates soon.

      Thanks guys. Yeah, a tint will be a great idea. My cherokee was tinted in the rear factory. Always thought it was weird Darts didn't come that way.

      Ordered a "flex" rear motor mount from Deyeme Racing yesterday. I'm looking forward to a tighter shifter feel.

      Modern Performance posted today that they are releasing a new metal shift knob also. Gotta get that with the STS kit.

      Looks great, that would be awesome to do the pre-delivery inspection yourself.

      Thanks!
      I've thought about it. Might do the rear diffuser first. It was like, a 600 something dollar option, and I considered doing it, but with 900 for the sun and sound, 300 for the hyper black wheels and 300 for the spare tire, I decided against it.

      First gas tank gave me about 350 miles to 13 gallons, this tank is looking to be about 350 as well. Not bad at all. 2 tanks and I have 715 miles on the car.
