I've heard and seen that the build quality of the pre '98 Vipers did have a some built quality issues(mostly the interior shows wear about 10x as fast as that of a normal car). I've talked to owners about the more recent models, and they all state the same thing: the build quality is much improved (as it should have been in the beginning), but the interior is still sparse (the necessities are present, along with a few amenities). Then again, it's SUPPOSED to be a strictly performance beast. A spartan interior suits me just fine...as long as I can go fast!
I just hope the OEM sound system in the Viper isn't as disappointing as the ///M's "premium H&K" sound system. =)
