Day one of shopping is complete.

Started out with disappointment, 135i was sold by the time i got there. They did have a 650 coupe for REALLY nice price so sells guy grabbed the keys. I was driving it semi hard and then the sells guy says, put it in sport mode and punch it. Got up to 110 mph before I even knew it. Car was simply AMAZING!!!!!! I was set to buy until he started going through papers and realized it was going to come with certified warranty. He actually said flat out, "you don't want this car, without warranty it is VERY expensive to fix"

Next came G37 s model. All i can say is CRAP. Underpowered for claimed specs and road like complete ****, you could feel everysingle imperfection in the road, not to mention the seats were really hard and very uncomfortable.


Next headed over to dodge to check out '11 charger, its ok but kind of felt like a grandma wagon on the inside. Ended up falling in love with the '11 Challenger R/T. Its at the very top of list now.

See, the problem with that is you started out with a BMW , compared to that, most everything else is going to seem slow and crappy. 650 coupes have got to be one of my favorite cars in general

I don't think the problem was BMW I think it was the fact that it was a 650 coupe, starting with a car that retailed for 90K was probably not the smartest choice.


I will say challenger had alot more "neck snapping" power. You could feel the power on the challenger no matter what speed you were starting from, while the 650 was more of a smooth accel. Unless I find something else I really like I should be coming home with a new '11 Challenger hopefully sometime next week.

Right now I am just waiting on insurance check.

I still need to stop by and look at WRX and 5.0 again though, but right now I am in love with the challengers size. Coupe but yet it still has enough room to fit all my pb **** in the truck without a problem. Plus its the best looking out of the big three muscle cars IMO. They used to be priced crazy high so I always wrote them off.

I have never liked the looks of the 6 series. It is just...half drawn up. I don't know your price range, but if you drove a 650, I would assume you could also be looking at a good used M3(hint hint).

The Challenger is the worse of the three new muscle cars. They look awesome, but they are big and heavy and I don't trust the tranny. You should really drive a GT before getting settled on anything. Also, have you considered a used CTSV? I don't really know the type of car you're after, but it can qualify.

All depends on what your basing it off of. If you go strictly off numbers down to points of sec ya sure its not the best but in real world everyday driving its honestly a very small gap.

I have driven them all before, my thoughts:


Starting with camaro:
1. you can't see **** while inside
2. its butt ugly
3. seat it mounted way to low
4. you can't see **** while inside
5. Every middle aged d-bag around here has one


Mustang 5.0:
1. its the fastest
2. interior is meh, rather cheap in appearance and feel
3. trunk space is retardly small
4. back seat is LOL
5. every 16 year old girl has a V6 model

Challenger:
1. Look the best by far IMO
2. Size is way more practical for a daily driver
3. back seat is actually big enough to fit normal size people in
4. Trunk space is amazing huge
5. dealer bumps warranty to lifetime for original owner making it the best offer by far


As for trusting tranny, I won't really have to worry about that since I would be going with the new 6 speed manual.

CTSV is not my thing and BMW dealer refuses to certify the M3 also so thats not going to happen. I refuse to buy BMW without warranty, parts are way to expensive. Same reason i walked on 650. Only reason i wanted 135i was that it was priced right and was coming with warranty that was still good for 4 years/100K miles.

I would never buy a Mustang, but if I was choosing between the 3 "muscle cars" you have listed above, the bolded reason is the reason I wouldn't buy a Mustang. I can't tell you how many 16 year old girls and punk ass 16 year old guys have V6 Mustangs in Arizona. The guys think since they have a Mustang, they have a fast car and constantly want to race, but the V6 can't handle my boost

hmm, so, the govt is cutting the Defense budget, and as of now, the military is only getting 50% of it paycheck on the 15th. then theres promises of "backpay" "once things get figured out" but thats down the road. what about the NOW, when people have bills to pay?
