I was referring to shiggy. Even if someone did drive a Focus, that does not invalidate their opinion.

Enzo Ferrari was driven around in a Fiat, evidently he didn't know anything about cars either.

EmPower, a gent as always (it's an E92 btw).

The funny part is, the Focus looks better than the 135i IMO, and it cost me $5,000. Some of these guys are financing their 135i for 48 months.

I'll be the first to say that the Camaro interior isn't the most luxurious out there (and it shouldn't for the price point), but it's not bad.


The 1 and 3 series interiors are pretty anemic themselves considering they are from a euro-luxo brand.

B8 A4


Lexus and Audi are a notch above BMW imo, and to add insult to injury, they have BMW beat in the cup holder department by a wide margin.

I think it's funny, when a car beats a BMW in the performance department, it all goes back to the "interior" argument, and which car has the better trim and leather sections.

Is that why the Camaro whips the 335i and E46 M3 on the Nurburgring?



Let me guess your next fanboy response:

"But a 135i/335i modded...."

Want to guess what a Camaro SS can do "modded"?

just speaking by experience, Camaro was not nearly as responsive as a 1/3 series with sport pkg. granted i didn't take it on the nurburgring, but just didn't have the road feel BMW provides. if you have the facts then i will retract the 2nd half of my statement, but the Camaro is still ugly inside (imo).

How much will that cost? Put that money into the LS3 and I bet you will see better results then the tune on the N54.

The Chevy Small Block is famous for big power gains for little money.

You were joking, correct?

Chevy will definitely be more reliable and much less expensive to maintain and has a longer warranty.
