Agreed - and its been a royal pain to convince people at my work (and I live in oklahoma, of all places! You'd think american cars would be more popular here. Then again, I work at a university) that GM is loads better than it used to be - better, even, than many imports.

And coming from a '94 BMW driver myself, BMWs are going downhill, both performance and design wise. It's nice to see GM turn things around. After 02 when they canceled the camaro, the rest of the line looked pretty dim, and the future along with it... not anymore

It's amazing how biased some drivers of german and japanese cars can be. Some of my family members, I swear you can see it in their faces, they want to capitulate, but the stubbornness and pride just won't let go...

i'm a german car driver, but born an american muscle lover, i'll admit i'm biased against most japanese imports mainly because I hate the look of riced out cars and the fact that almost every kid w/ a Civic thinks he's in Fast and the Furious.

but i gotta say that the skyline is an Awsome car! and the fact that scion drivers have packed 40 psi of boost into their engines (not sure which engine) is outrageous. power to them!

I didn't think it was that bad really. I actually kinda liked it.

^I think that is correct, however I am sure GM would like to appeal to as many people as possible (who are into sports cars, at least). I don't mean to compare the two cars by any means, but if the Camaro (V6) can attract as wide a group as say the Honda Accord, that would be great IMO.

I've not seen the interior except for these pics. Are all of them going to have plasic panels with the same color of the interior?
