Not bad. They are right on the shifting for autos. Had the same problem with my c-5 vette. I don't seen to have that problem with the 6-speed cam.

The only bashing about all 3 cars was the electronics and auto. They said over and over again that european makers can learn a lot from us. They praised all three cars over and over again, minus the two bad points.

I test drove an L99 and used the tapshift, it confirmed that I wanted an LS3. Its not anything like the porsches tiptronic button shifters, but what can you expect the porsche is like 3x more

Don't get me wrong, I still like my automatic. Plus you can never miss a gear and that's one of the advantages. I will get my car tuned in the near future though.

That was awesome!!!

I think it is really cool you German dudes were enjoying the American muscle cars!!!

It would be fascinating to see you drive the Camaro on the Autobahn.

Also, I think when the Z28 comes out, you guys should come back to the U.S.A. and take it on a California trip. Drive it up to Lake Tahoe and to Yosemite and down the Pacific Coast Highway if you want to see some insane views. Also check out the Grand Canyon if you get a chance.

It does not surprise me that the German dudes liked the Camaro. When I drove the SS, it was definitely a muscle car, but it had a high-precision German-like feel in many ways.

Nice watches by the way!!!

Jake

We īd like to test the Camaro on the Autobahn also!
And to drive the Z28 on your recommended Trip would be great.

Great Videos! I enjoyed them very much!

(Although I thought it was funny all the comments about too much electronics in American cars when BMW is fast becoming a computer with wheels...)

I'm in the middle of film 3 right now. And I wonder, can I get a list of the songs you used as background music?

You are right about the BMW as a computer on wheels.
We love the corvette for its power and simplicity.
Indeed it is based on prehistoric technique concerning the engine and the leaf springs,but these things are working great.
But why do they spoil the the car a little bit by putting in those useless electronic gizmos, which are constantly trying to annoy the driver?
Itīs the sheer driving fun we love about the corvette (and the camaro) .
Putting in electric door openers and countless beeping alarms
is imho like putting a laser scope and a bluetooth on a longsword.

Yeah, the TAPshift is no good. When you down shift it sounds like you're killing the transmission. I really wonder if using the manual mode is good for the car? I try to avoid it. Hopefully with a tune it will function better.

I never noticed that sound...and yeah -- it's designed to do what it does safely and reliably.
