I didn't say interior dumbass. I was talking about the rear of the old corvette being able to be pushed in seeing it was flimsy plastic.

People b*tch about the too inspired Camaro tailights, so what?

Remember when the SLR McLaren appear, guess which car recieve a "redisgin" (almost looking like a Mini-Me SLR) the poor SLK. Now compare the E-Class with the C-Class that sharing some design similiarities.

Stop hating and enjoy the damn car for Godsakes.

I actually like it - well, besides the exhaust. It looks somehow like a ferrari crossed with a camaro which is a good thing basically.

When the A3 get spanked by the new Corvette, maybe the A3 driver can yell out the window, my car has a nicer interior.

I've gotta say.. That thing is UGLY. but thats subjective. 'I' dont like it one bit. Too contrived and showy looking. Far from classy. Its like the juiced up, gym rat who spends all his time bench pressing, is useless running or doing anything useful and wears the worlds tighest dollar store t-shirts to expose his gruntyness.

It is NOT a sports car (the americans still havent grasped that concept) it's just a muscle car. Loads of power in a flimsy chassis. Almost tractor like. Yes the LS series small blocks are great powerplants and 450hp is a solid output.. but I dont care for the sound.. the all new ford coyote motor spanks it for sound and engineering, too bad IT is saddled into that brutal truck.. called a mustang.

hopefully some day the american auto manufacturers will pull their heads out of their respective asses and build proper drivers cars..

The new Vette looks better than the ugly F30. The F30 interior looks more plastic-ky.
I forgot it has the roundel so it must look better.

Your car has a shitty transmission made by GM, you probably dont care as long as the underpowered ,wimpy looking 328i has the BMW roundels on it.

They took too many cues from the Ferrari F12, then executed them poorly. It looks like a ninja just chopped a hole in the front fender. I will give a huge thumbs up to the interior, but I think the exterior is just terrible. I'm not an American car hater, in fact I LOVED the C6 Z06, but this just looks like they tried to combine too many foreign elements and lost touch with the Corvette lineage along the way.

I understand you are upset, but there is no need to attack somebody personally.

Saying the 328i is underpowered, wimpy lookin with a shitty transmission made by GM is not attacking someone personally.
The 328i looka as boring as a Toyota Camry.

I didn't see it as a "personal" attack. It was a general jab at all E90 328s...

Just wait until we get those 320s here in the states.. Thenthe 328s will have a bmw to stereotype.

But back on topic. I think the new Corvette looks really good.

When you say that to somebody who actually owns a 328i - I don't think that's ok. But back on topic... I still think the new Vette looks good.

I not a Chevy Fan, but why would you pay all that money for a Corvette when you can get this at $55K and it spanks the ass of every car around it

2011 Chevrolet Camaro SLP ZL1 0-60 mph 3.1 Quarter Mile 11.0 oh let not forget for our Euro Friends who think road course are the all important measure of a cars performance 7.41.27 lap time at the Nurburgring, I think that beats all the BMW on home territory
