There are quite a few things I like better on the concept... exhaust tips being one of them.

Yes I don't mind the factory tips, tho I like the duals like MBRPs better. I'm thankfull for what we DIDNT get from concept- the too high sidemarkers, and the ( can allmost not type this) crosshair grill! Want to know HOW close that decision was, one needs look no farther than the service manual, it HAS the crosshair grill! My biggest dissapointment will allways be, the lack of rear windows that roll down, but overall this car will allways be perfect to me!

The ONLY thing I like better on the concept is the fact they DON'T have the grey lower plastic panels. The car would look MUCH better one color instead of the grey panels. It should be seem-less sheetmetal all the way down.

The color doesn't bother me - goes good with silver. Just would prefer seamless sheet metal.
I wonder how long it will be before someone comes out with a decent replacement? Made with something a little more substantial and durable.

Seems to me there's a few companies out there now that make replacement "side skirts" for the Challenger... RPI and Cervini comes to mind. But one thing to consider is that Dodge deliberately did the plastic thing to give the appearance of a slimmer side than the car actually has. So study a black car or perhaps photoshop silver lowers onto your current silver car before you go to all the expense and trouble of replacing them. Perhaps the best option might be to just have a good paint shop paint them for you.

Exactly. Even if I replaced them, I'd paint them black.
