I have had her since Friday and just got around to getting pictures today! This car is going to get a big makeover at Dans meet in Ohio. But here it is "stock". Of course I still got the 300M! The 300M is my wifes 1 mile daily car and the 2004 Intrepid is my 40 mile daily car. My camera sucks and I know the engines need washed lol :) Enjoy.

I paid 2,500 for the 2004 Dodge Intrepid Police Package. It was in service until about a month ago. They were selling a few cars that the department didnt "need". They plan on getting 2 new chargers by the end of 2009.

I paid 4,000 for the 2002 Chrysler 300M

the one with a bad tranny was sold to someone on this site as a parts car.
the other one was sold to a friend.

A little late chiming in here, but as one of the longest police package owners on this site, I thought I'd throw out a couple tips regarding performance:

- The stock OEM tires, a special version Eagle RS-A, is VERY responsive handling wise, due to extra-stiff sidewalls. Putting softer, "touring" type tires will hurt handling quite a bit, due to the tall sidewall.

- The OEM police brake pads wear fast, has lots of dust, but stops on a dime. I've tried Bendix, and recently the Hawk HPS, and even the HPS (fairly agressive), don't hold a candle to OEM.

- Regarding the brake fires - try 10 stops from 90 mph on a non-police Intrepid and see what happens. The fire department would be there...

Now, being non-new, the department might have changed both tires and brakes to a different manufacturer. But if you enjoy a good handling car, stick to sporty, stiff tires, and OEM brake pads. The police package has a very good suspension system, and IMO would go to waste with comfort oriented brakes and tires.

The only thing I don't like about the car is the ass-up pitch from the heavy load springs in the rear.

I don't know about the police package, but I have drilled and slotted rotors with ceramic brake pads and I hardly ever have a problem with brake dust and my car has never stopped so fast.

Im no expert on Popo Treps, but they have your standard PHP rotors and maybe the standard pads too. (I'm not sure on the last part.) What I do know is they use DOT 5 brake fluid instead of DOT 4.

Since it was a local car have you gone back to the department to get the maintanance records?

Other than the trunk lid records!

I have a set of goodyear rsa plus tires they are good!

What interior did you put in?

What would it look like with the wheels painted white?

Photo shop anyone?

Florida used to do that with the old school cop rims in the late 80's, and they stood out!
