Bought 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS manual

I was SO close to buying the 135i, but the Camaro is more fun and cost MUCH LESS.

Pics, and driving impressions between 135i vs Camaro SS.

This will actually be worth reading because it will be from someone who has actually been in both cars instead of the fanboys who just make up stories.

You could fit a 135i in the back seat of the Camaro...

I'll admit that in the "ugly" department the Camaro beats the 135i, it is much uglier than the 135i.

Looks are subjective. If it was a Camaro SS RS vs 135i just based on design, Camaro please in a heartbeat.

That's a good one. I almost thought you were serious.

You must be kidding. The 135i couldn't be uglier if it tried.

Camaro is great, mostly because they had the wisdom to keep Americans out of the engineering and had a Korean design it.

Sometimes I'll see a Camaro and think it's pretty good-looking, but the base models look like ass.

If this was a poll asking which looked better, the Camaro 2SS/RS or 135, I'd take the Camaro 2SS/RS over the 135 hands down.

The 135i couldn't be uglier (than it currently is) if it tried.

I've driven the Camaro & wasn't impressed at all.

Having said that, it is definitely much better looking than the 1.

I usually don't like to come down on cars because I think all cars have their positives and negatives, but the 135i is really ugly. I don't think I've seen an uglier car from BMW.

The Camaro can transform into your very own robot guardian. Who would want a 135i
