I guess if you rate the camaros external appearance as a 7.5 or whatever you did, it does not sound like your a camaro fan.

Personally, I would say the camaro is a 10 in appearance and coolness, thats why there is one in my garage and thats why I treat it like a member of the family!!!

Sounds like there is likely another car out there that you would be happier with. Lot of room from 7.5 to a 10!!!

I personally think the Mustang is hideous and would buy a Challenger long before even considering the Stang...
I'm with you on this. Mustang's don't have any styling at all these days except for the view from the front, side and rear looks quite shitty to me.

I wold rate overall styling of the Mustang a 4.5. And from all the comments I get from people of every age group I think most people would agree.

Good for you. Personally, I think BMW's are girly-man cars.

Obviously, I love the Camaro. Otherwise, I wouldn't have taken then plunge. It is a cool looking car. it is comfortable. it handles well. you can do a lot of mods yourself.

Having said that, Ford did a nice job upgrading the interior. the Sync Nav system, is without a doubt, awesome. I played with one in a Flex rental not too long ago. All I can say is wow.

Bottomline to me is they are both good vehicles. The only real issue o have with the 2011 Mustang is the rear design.

My decision, as should be yours, was based on what I felt best met my criteria. That is thenfun part of the decision making process.

Interesting reading your evaluation and noticing when you are talking about the Mustang... It is all mustang for that portion.... When you switch to a Camaro portion you throw in the Mustang, Challenger, and 335i.... There is also a good bit of contradiction through out both parts.....

And while the title only mentions the 335i, the bulk of your post is about the Mustang...

I actually believe that the Mustang crowd is a lot more diverse than the Camaro crowd...


But there are also 10+ Freakin models of Mustang and only 5 Models of Camaro....

Which is a lot of why the Camaro appeals to me..... I am less apt to run across 5 soccer moms driving a car that looks like mine.


PS.. Nothing wrong with Soccer or Moms.

Real men are comfortable enough with their manliness to drive a girly-man car.

Really I was comparing the Mustang vs Camaro. I was turning in the 335i that was leased. I prefer V8s so the GT and the SS each had a chance to be my next car. I am not knocking the BMW. It is a great car and it was fun to drive it for a few years.

Yes lots of contradictions. Buying a motor head car is as much as a subjective decision as an objective one.

The Challenger was never in the running for me. Good looking but too big and too heavy.

I love the low roof. I think its one of the coolest things about the car... It is almost how they chop the roof on hot rods and make them lower. Unless your like 7ft tall then yeah I'd hate it too. I was beside a new Stang yesterday and the roof just roll's up to high in my opinion. Other than that I wouldn't take anything away from the new Mustang body styles, it isn't a bad looking car.

The Camaro has body lines that can't be beat. To many Mustangs on the road in so many styles body kits colors stripes and so on. Camaro sticks out and says something with out all the added components.

I am ready to make my move. There are two black 2011-2SS/RS-6M-Roofs near me. I probably will come home with one of them. It is the end of the month. A time for wheeling and dealing. We will see what they both really give me for my WS6.

Both of those black 2SSes have the black interior. I really wanted the inferno seats as it makes the interior more interesting for me. But the closest one I could find was 200 miles away.

I cannot join USAA, I was not in the service and my dad was not a member. So I cannot get that discount. But i do have the supplier and credit union discounts. But I do not think I can use both together. One dealer was actually taking $500 off list! So with the supplier discount I think I am getting close to invoice.
