GM paddle shifters suck compared ot a porsche or mercedes. this is where alot of european dollars go to. not to mention there suspension are years ahead of US. these are just some reasons why euro cars are more pricier than US. chevy is just finally (last 10 years maybe)listening to the racing world with the corvette racing team and using that info for the cars. all the european names i listed have been integrating their findings from racing into the street cars for decades.
no you don't. Not at all. If anything the quality of European cars is going down. I have worked on a few and they are nothing special.

In terms of quality do you mean leather wrapped dash boards and projector lights that turn with your steering wheel?

Then maybe. But new Caddys and even the new Jeep GC are pretty nice in that department too
