Nissan 370z vs. Camaro SS vs BMW 135i

So there are some serious discussions going on about these 3 cars in one of the biggest 370Z and 135i forums. I just wanted to see what you guys think.

http://www.the370z.com/nissan-370z-g...o-vs-135i.html

http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...594#post299594

BTW, i can't believe OP couldn't find a good camaro forum. Jeez, there's only one -- Camaro5.com

Also, just when you think things are dying down a bit then Insideline releases this: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...topanel..1.*#2

I know my opinions probably be biased since I drive the Z car already, but Nissan did an amazing job with the new Z. What do you guys think?

Yeah I agree the 370Z is a great car, second only to the Camaro! I put the 135i in the luxury sport car class, though it is nice (and maybe a little overpriced). I think the 135i would lose (barely) to either, and if the drivers are even the Camaro would win on the straight, and a tie (or maybe a slight Z victory) on a windy track. Just my prediction, and again they are all good cars!

I don't understand the discussion?
The Nissan is a Japanese car - no American should ever consider buying one.
The BMW is a German car - no American should ever consider buying one.
The Camaro is made by an American car manufacturer. The only valid choice of the three.

1 - camaro
2- 370z
3- 135i

my reasoning, the camaro and 370 are both N/A and look better than the 135i, just my opinion the latter part

Wow that's a big statement. I don't know if I quite agree with you.

Now i say this, while owning and driving a BMW.

the 1 series is ugly. like a squished 3.


Id go Camaro/370z as a wash. handling vs. power.


dont concider the 1 series unless looks mean nothing, and then you could save some money and buy a used STi for the same level of ugly.

A tick over 13.0 sec. and you're through the quarter-mile. It's a rush, of course, but not overly dramatic. Try the same thing with this pair's predecessors of 1970 or so and you'll find yourself in a bit of a wrestling match. Ain't progress wonderful? Maybe yes, and maybe sometimes it's fun to wrestle."

Couldn't agree with you more.

I think the OP's point is clear now.

Some forums actually talk about the driving characteristics of the cars.

hard to argue with logic... so I'll agree with this
