its a fwd bread and butter car, its not a rwd performance oriented sedan like the G8, so you really can't make the comparison

Malibu build quality is actually better than the BMW build quality. Granted, the BMW has the performance edge. But in terms of build quality, the new Malibu has that wrapped up.

The A/B picture comparison is not really accurate. The Camaro is bigger and has bigger displacement but no overhead cam. The Mustang is smaller and has smaller displacement and a SOHC or DOHC depending on the model. This is a more accurate comparison:

A



B





A



B

BMW has bread and butter cars too. Why does everyone assume the comparison is to an M3 whenever someone brings up "compares favorably to a BMW. Being an owner of a lower end 3 series, I can safely say: it's a wonderful feel, stiff without being harsh, but cruise control would be nice, and I wish I didn't have to be so gentle with the transmission.

i am impressed and i'm glad domestics have improved their game, malibu is no exception, but to say that GM is leaps and bounds ahead in quality compared to Ford is just not accurate and to think that Ford won't be bringing their A game moving forward is wishful thinking

Now, is my opinion WRONG? Doubt it. But is it a FACT? No. Chick B might look hot if she took that mask off.

Which is better below. A or B?

A



B



I would say that both B's have a lot in common

LMFAO! Good point. In both cases, A is the right answer.

Here's where you're wrong. The first two pictures are close. Meaning, the performance of each would be nearly the same. In the case of the second two pictures, just looking at them it is clear which one is better.

I will admit, the Mustang GT with a supercharger that has 15 lb's of boost would be faster than a Camaro SS stock. But after intake and exhaust on my Maro', your screwed again. Not to mention needing a new engine cause 15 lb's on a FORD = BOOOOM

All I have to say is if I can beat NEW GT's in my 07 TC....I probably won't even waste the gas once I have my Camaro, since I consider it's direct competitor the GT500, even though they aren't in the same range, putting a stock GT against a stock SS isn't a fair battle.
