  • New Member Back Again...

    Back for more input, please.

    The 05 RT's had major upgrade/change with the FD, and being the first year model for that change should I be concerned about the FD bearing issues I've read about?

    Also, are there other significant "issues", if any, that I might be aware of, specifically on the 05'?

    This isnt am attempt to begin a Bashing Thread at all. I simply have some concerns, I am already sold on the BMRS and Lord willing, will own one in 2 weeks!

    Thanks in advance
