Chrysler 300M



  • I just ordered my Borla system last week from SummitRacing. I think there is something wrong with their website though, I was looking there off/on and for the past couple months and could not find a listing....till last week. I checked again today and now it's not there. See, last Thursday there were buttons at the bottom of the web page you could click on to get more applications, but again today it's not there. Weird. Anyways, they have it. It's part #BOR-14835. It costs $511 plus a $5 handling fee for shipping. They ship the same day, I had mine the next day!!! I get mine installed tomorrow, that will run me $75. I'll let you all know how good it sounds!

    Where are you? What's happening with your car? Are you still fighting with the insurance company?

    I have a wav file around here somewhere of my exhaust. If I find it again I'll post it.
  • splattsplatt Posts: 328
    cmyers - what year M do you have? Borla says the system is for 99-00, and I'm almost positive the 01 is exactly the same, but... :)

    sdmike - ahh, a main line kid huh?? :D I'd appreciate it though - thanks!
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Ok, I found these old clips of my exhaust. The first, the mpg, is 1.7MB and sounds a little tinnier than actual. The second file, the avi, is about 400k and the sound a bit muffled. Imagine a nice rich sound between the two. Oh, the box is from the use of a neutered video editing program.

    Apparently, someone thinks the Intrepid and 300M are incompatible:

    "dear Scott,
    Thank you for your email. I suggest calling Chrysler to find out for sure if the
    body styles are the same. Our vendor does not recommend it .

    on1wheel -- Go over there and straighten all of this out for us!

    The first thing I did was to press and release the parking brake pedal (did no good). The park light stays on and the ABS turns on after 7 seconds no matter what I do. I undid all my wireing to see of any change, but it had no affect. Sounds like a module problem, or bad sensor to me.
    Thanks for the thoughts anyway. The car drives good although there is a really slight differance if brake feel. I have an appointment for friday morning.

    Someone mentioned a TSB or something for correcting seat movement. Can you please give that number again. I figure I will have the dealer fix it too before the warranty is over.
  • here is a reliable source for heavy duty brand name rubber mats custom sized for the M--I will be ordering mine soon unless a group purchase is possible. I have agate carpet, so I think the black would look fine--$44.95 for fronts which is all I need.
  • I have 2 more glitches with my M. When I use the door lock button, the left rear door lock make a loud metallic and buzzing clunk. Anyone have this problem Also, my front speakers sound raspy especially on deep base notes. I noticed this when car was new, but now it is worse.
    So, Lolita is going back to the dealer for another warranty service. I get to drive another Cheep when I drop the M off at the dealer's.

    Another couple of small probs with the M. 26k on the clock and running fine otherwise
  • hope Chrysler doesnt built this one---one ugly design---what are they thinking!
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    looks like someone dropped that car on its [non-permissible content removed]. :)

    I just got home and got your e-mail. No problem. I'll try to get it out to you before the week is over.

  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Did you drive by any graveyards...or junkyards...around halloween time? lol! I bet the speaker is that cheap center one in the dash that serves no logical purpose. I think Av and possibly others have just disconnected it. However, if it's under warranty I'd have them replace it. It might just be a tear in the cone. Also, I have a similar window problem on my wife's grand caravan. It makes an unnecessary amount of noise when I lock or unlock the passenger side door. My guess is that it's just the little motor in there, but I've never bothered to take it in for a fix (since I don't drive the "rolling garbage can", as I call it). ;)

    As always, let us know what you find out. :)
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Anyone ever hear back from the guy that had the intermittant starting problem? I'm curious what they found (if it's fixed)
  • jj300mjj300m Posts: 24
    The TSB is 23-019-01 for the moving seat dated 8/10/2001. Repair (installation of a revised pair of screws) is to be made if owner mentions condition. The same power seat adjuster is used on both front seats, so you may want to have them replace the screws on passenger seat also.

    Well, Nifty knows the Intrepid and the 300M share the same mold, but is not sure if they are the same colors, i.e., if Intrepid charcoal = 300M charcoal.

    PHONE # IS 800-500-5088


    Does anyone know if the Intrepid has "Agate" interior like the 300M?
  • I have a small place on the side of the console that needs to be touched up. Can you get paint that will match the console colors ? I think this is a light taupe. Thanks.......
  • Sorry i didn't get back to you right away...I have a 2001 M. I know Borla says 99-00 but it fits the 2001 as well. In fact, my M is in the shop now getting it installed as I write this. I'll let you know how I like it!(duh, that should MUCH I like it)
  • The Feb 2002 issue of Mopar Action, page 71, has a full page ad about "High Performance Computer Upgrades" called the Optimizer II. It lists both the 300M and Intrepid. You send in your computer and they do the upgrade and ship it back by return overnight shipping (included) for $349.00
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    What is the upgrade supposed to do?
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Anyone need a stock air filter or stock plugs, just let me know via email at Each have about 2,000 miles on them. The plugs looked like they have some miles on them, but the air filter is like new. I also have a smoker's package (unused), but I think I'll try to sell that on e-bay.

  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Well, I finally went out to and priced out a 2002 M equivalent to Big Red. The carsdirect price is still about $800 over what I paid for my car. I guess the packages/options are a bit different (e.g. the stereo), and they're not offering the types of incentives that I was able to get in addition to my killer negotiations. heh. I was worried that an equivalent '02 would be a grand cheaper than what I paid. It looks like it prices out "full loaded" about the same.
  • scotianscotian Posts: 1,064
    Not in stock, but they are $118.99 for charcoal 300M (set of four mats) -- less than JCW. I'll order one soon, unless someone wants to attempt a group discount/purchase.
  • My installer took the muffler and resonator off leaving only the intermediate pipe and the collector muffler.Welded the two pipes around the gas tank for the duals and put on monza tips for less than 250$.If you are young it sounded great,but I do a lot of highway driving and the droning noise got to me ( plus I'm older) He then added a turbo muffler after the collector muffler and It is a little louder than stock
    and sounds ok.I thought the price was fairly reasonable and didn't cost any more with the extra muffler or work after the initial install

    Don't jump ship! Keep the M!


  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Hey it IS an M...just a M3! lol. You have to admit's nice. :)
  • wencaowencao Posts: 52
    I found there are lots of them on ebay.
    Anybody bought this sub ? How is it ? Do you think it worth the money?
  • fastdriverfastdriver Posts: 2,273
    sdmike2- might be an M3, but it's missing the 00! ;-)) Besides, it wouldn't look as good as BigRed in front of your house!

    Easy, had the same problem with my 2000 LHS. Took it in two weeks ago to repair. The entire assembly must be replaced. Apparently the internal gears were grinding. It truly is a hideous sound and especially embarrassing in crowded parking lots.

    Also had to have the seals around the headlights redone as the adhesive had failed. Flickering lights fixed by repairing a wire in the dash that was apparently shorting out and a new headlight button for the dash.

    I am now at 38K and praying I don't have to use my extended warranty.
