Why Eww? It can be painted. Its nice to see a vendor making new parts, or even more than one vendor making similar parts. Personally I don't like the CBD version, but this isn't bad, isn't all that visible.

This really isn't new, MPx has had a thread on SRTForums for a while.

Done at Dealership

I'm all done,

They fixed my Grab Handles for free, and my Trans no leaky no more. I also picked up a Windshield sprayer nozzle for $14, only to find out that both were busted.

Stupid things. I'll get another next week. Will be nice to be able to use my sprayer nozzles again lol.

So today I'm at the dealership getting an axle seal replaced. Shop has 2 other SRT4s in so I'm feeling confident they know what they are doing.

This maintenance list keeps getting shorter and me happier. :-)

Update 9/23/2011 - IAC Fixed

Well,

The car is now not stuttering when going from reverse to 1st. IAC was plugged and not moving properly. New one from MPx Resolved the issue. My RPM also does not hang when going from gear to idle like it was.

I should be getting some LEDs in soon. I can't wait.
