Default Dodge Charger SRT

I've got a hunch they're from Pakistan, but i've been told this car's in India. Any sightings?

Well, having a number plate visible would've helped note which country it's from. Looks like Dubai.

Dosen't look like India. Only RHD imports allowed here (car has to above $40000 to be imported without homologation).

You can faintly still see the license plate design, it's certainly not from dubai. Pakistan or Bangladesh? Mods close this if not Indian.

Default homologousness

Can someone clarify this RHD/LHD import "rule"? I have a 300C that I want to bring to India, but it's a LHD.. Are there diplomatic exclusions to the "rule"? where are the rules posted/enunciated?

Thanks

Jay

I just didnt like the drive, the worst drivers car, yeah its got power, yeah its got some looks, but the damn thing is cheap and it aint got no sound inside the cabin which makes you feel good and on top of that the steering will kill you someday..

Too light, i mean when you give power to this propotions then you need a sporty steering feel, not a one touch take a U turn kind of a feel...sad..not comforting at all..may be i use to M3s and G35s and my Vette, but I cant get use to a car with that steering, now if there was a way to mod it to make the steering feel better, then its different, but I have never heard anyone changing the way a steering feels!!?

and on top of that the steering itself was a little big in the diameter, my only gripe with the vette too, but its still function in the vette, there i just didnt like it..

Please define JAP CARS....Ripping open???? Kindly improvise.......

The 300c is selling pretty well here....infact people are choosing this over a Commodore or a Ford falcon....

why call it a CHARGER when you decide to put 4 DOORS + an option of a V6?

285 HEMI + 2 DOORS + a loud motor......= A CHARGER!!!!!

Thats the way the Americans prefer it. Either its too extreme, as in a track car..or over-assisted. Anyway, I dont like the Charger's looks. Whatever happened to this gorgeous concept??

Hopefully, the upcoming Challenger will address that issue.
OT : Is anyone else experiencing problems with uploading images at Imageshack?

I personally didnt like the concept very much, nor do I like this version much. I think they should have waited and, liek Dodge and Chevy are going to do now, launch a proper retro-styled pony car instead of a four-door.
