    What s the difference between a 2014 SRT and a 2015 GT

    I'm deep into the purchasing process of a Viper, I'm in a good/bad dilemma on which vehicle to choose though.

    Both cars have nearly exactly the same amount of miles, both have the CF aero and sidewinder II wheels.
    The 2015 GT has the 22j quick order package
    the 2014 is just a standard SRT
    The price difference between the two is about 9k. Is a GT model worth 9k more than a year older SRT model?

    The price difference is really due to the year.

    The GT will have the suede door/lower dash/kick panels and suede seats, 2-vent hood, as well as the 2pc Stoptech rotors and bi-mode shocks. Is that worth $9k to you?

    Note that the 2014 may have a 10year powertrain warranty if its VIN was included in the r28 "recall." The 2015 would not. You would need to confirm that with a dealer. Not all 2013 and 2014 were included in that warranty extension.

    2015 has the taller 6th gear too.
    Srt won’t have the nicer Napa leather seats and upgraded stereo. 6 vs 2 vent hood is a preference- 6 exaggerates the hood length and I prefer the cleaner 2 vent hood, albeit it’s not a strong preference.
    I think the 14 srt might have the 2pc stop tech brakes though. I’d check. I think it can be optioned with bimode shocks too.

    decent breakdown of all trim levels. GT is in between a SRT and GTS in price, but is closer to a GTS than an SRT. Think GTS with a lesser interior.

    do a search on who to look up the window sticker of the two cars using the VIN and that should tell you the specifics for your value judgement.

    I went ahead and got the 15 gt. The red one is a private party and isn't moving fast enough, plus I'd rather have than have not. I cant wait to get her home, still waiting on the PPI to come back

    I'm growing inpatient and thinking about driving her from north Carolina back to Texas, but not sure how well it would do. Any experience on long trips?

    IF the weather forecast is good, check tires and fluids before you start, MIND the oil level along the way (take a few spare quarts with you) ...and
    GO FOR IT !!

    Now that you have the GT with the taller 6th gear, Go ahead and put 3.91 rear gears, feel the difference and have fun !

    PPI says tires are about 50% and brakes are about 30-40%. Any recommendation on where to purchase both?

    Wow, 10,500 miles and brakes are at 30-40%. Someone was hard on the brakes!

    yes, that was a bit surprising. Not sure if it's enough to back out of the deal. Opinions?

    I would try to match what has been used in that vehicle IF you also got service records and/or info from last owner.
    Most street drivers have used Mobil 1 0W-40 or 15W-50... or the factory fill Pennzoil Ultra Platinum SRT 0W-40.

    Finally, when you get home, change oil and filter..using proper SRT filter which is part number 05038041AA.

    I don't send or receive "PM's" since I prefer DIRECT communication.

    Definitely change the oil and filter when you get it. I like the Mobil 1 : 5w50 for year-round oil.

    Already booking an appointment for next week, stoptech brakes for the GT? Anyone know where I can source a non CF taillight surround pannel?

    I really like my carbotech 1521 pads. Minimal dust- more than ceramic, way less than factory. But they have better bite and stopping power than stock by a long shot base on driving the two- plenty of power to lock up the brakes at highway speeds- that's for sure.

    If the previous owner left the factory Brembo pads on there, the rotors should be fine to reuse, the Brembos aren't hard on rotors. My pre bed Carbotech endurance pads on the other hand, are hard on rotors. If you're street driving, stick to the Brembos, dust be damned, (not that I care about dust, unlike most owners).

    For the rear carbon applique, most either go OEM, or Xtreme Supercars.
