The lack of performance is starting to bother me more and more!

I took a G37 for a test drive today. It has roughly the same headroom. I fit in, but head rubs the roof ever so slightly. I can tilt the seat back a bit but it's not as comfortable. I'll have to sit in a Camaro to see how well the seats and steering wheel adjust for comfort.

Doesn't seem right, does it? I was hoping with 122 more hp, hopefully underrated, and with 1.6L more, the Camaro would be speculated with better performance. I was thinking that a 6.2L 422hp V8 with IRS and a 6M would hit 0-60 in 4.5 ish and 1/4 in 12.6 ish. Hmmm...

Also, 23mpg? Hmmmm, I was expecting more along the lines of 26-28mpg. Also, it takes Premium fuel Everythig else is
don't forget the auto has steeper gear ratios than the m6 so should be pretty close peformance wise.

Any chance to get this stripe package. Always liked the "wrap around"

And yes please watch the language it is getting rough in a couple of threads.
That don't make any sense. What's your definition of a light, bright, and non-color, get scientific if you like I'll keep up.

White is the combination of All Colors
Black is the combination of All Pigments
Pigments absorb light and reflect a portion of the spectrum. this portion translates into what we see as "Color"
The more the pigment absorbs the darker the "color" we see.
Very white paint absorbs very little light so reflects as white and bright.
Black paint the opposite (which is why to me a smooth black finish is sooo cool, like looking into an osidian mirror - err too much?)

skipping past..

In addition to the spectum of light that is absobed/reflected there is also the luminosity or how much of it is reflected.
Again Bright white reflects alot of light black little. Grey absorbs alot of the spectrum but has higher luminosity.
Richer Color paints tend to darker because of how much and what they absorb to create the deeper colors we see.
(My physics of light is a bit simplistic, its been a reallly long time since I had this crap)

Also it depends on what you have in mind when you think of a color in the same family.

To some Navy blue is Blue to others its Robin's egg. both would consider Midnight dark and Sky light, but the one thinking of Robin's egg might see slate blue as dark where the guy thinking of Navy would say light.
It's very much subjective.

Does the current mustang have stability control and side curtain air bags?

My understanding is that stability control is going to be mandatory in a couple of years and cars that don't have it get a weight advantage that is going to go away soon. Stability control is a non-trivial piece of hardware that has some weight to it. There's not only sensors and wiring and a control module, but they need a beefier system for maintaining pressure in the brake system and individual control systems for each wheel.
