2011 BMW E92 M3  [5.00]
HUGE improvement, in fact I really like it Deff don't like the quads all lined up like that though...
STILL... would not buy one UNTIL I (1) lose more hair on my head (2) grow more chest hair (3) buy a bowling ball I can throw under that hatch back

I like it overall. It is a bit busy with all the vents and contours, but I would buy one on the styling.

What always kills these cars for me is the Fit and Finish. Granted the C6 was way better then C5 vettes in terms of that. Hopefully these are better then those. But to me the interior is always like a cobolt or some base Chevy car.

The Nissan version works great. If you don't like it or can do it on your own, simple, turn it off.

Agreed. I've been a long time hater. The C6 Z06 has made me come around a bit. With the base C7 coming in just below the current Z06 performance wise and looking like that, the C7 Z06 will probably be enough to get me in Chevy dealership.

+1, I hate the feminine front end on the Viper and the cheesy Camaro Hot Wheels rear end. That said, both of those things look better on this car so they aren't deal breakers for me. Overall, I am excited. The last car that I was excited for was the GT-R.

What a stupid comment. So if you liked every aspect of the car (aesthetics, performance, price, etc.) you wouldn't buy it because it's American/Chevy. If that's how you live your life, you're missing out on a lot.

they definitely went to the extreme on vents etc...I'm looking forward to what the Z06 will look like (and performance wise). Not sold on the tail lights yet, but overall I like it.

I agree 1000000%. I've seen it happen billions of times. The computer designed model looks amazing but I bet the finished product is gonna looks camaro-ish in quality and fit. Chevy just can't get it right on when it comes to the actual production cars.

In fact, I just saw the real unveiling photos and sure enough its not as nice....

The real stingray on the left looks much worse than the cg photo what we have been drooling over.

definitely looks over styled, but perhaps in black it would look a little less busy

Yeah I actually thought the same Thing. The first pic of the Computer Image I liked it though it was pretty nice. I just saw the actual Pic of the car and the whole opinion changed.

It looks like its trying to be something its not. It wants to be american and euro at the same time.
Its kinda

Like what was mentioned already, the exterior is over-styled. But can't argue with the performance: 0-60 in under 4secs...on a base model. Wow.
Interior is so much nicer then the C6.

In all seriousness I really wonder how well the C7's design will age. It's really pretty busy and I have reservations about it.

At least the vents are all functional, unlike some other cars we know. Gotta give props for that anyway.

Personally, I like the real deal just as much as the rendering, barring the color selected. they appear very similar to me, but from a slightly different angle, different lighting, and car color.

I just may start saving up for some gold chains.
