im sorry guys...

but i get a new car every 18 months or so to "add" to the collection and i think the next one is going to ethier be a 370z or camaro ss... im leaning over to the 370z a little bit more for a few reasons...now in saying that... when i drove my tt 350z... (which still didnt have enough torque)...i found myself saying, i wish i had a v8, and the classic, i wish i had a backseat(for more girls lol joking(my fiance might be on the site))
now this new car is going to have to be a daily drive as well as very very mild winter driving ...
i dont want to get a camaro and say... hmm the 370z handled better... or got better mileage...

either way they both look very sexy, are fast as hell, and everyone drools when they see one...
the main factor... insurance premiums... the price for the 370z is going to be 40% less that that of a camaro for my area and age 26 which is at around 6000 annual...
i seem to believe that a 370z will handle better and its low slung-ness is more my style, striaght line speed in which the camaro would dominate... isnt the most important factor im going to break it down like this

Camaro 370z
speed
quarter mile 10 8.5
(accel)
corners 8.5 9.5
(track)
style 9.5 10

economics 7.5 8

price 8 10 (neighbor owns a nissan)

feel 8.5 9.5

technology 9 9.5

man im so F'in confused lol
i think i might just another 350z and supercharge it

please help

2 verses 4 seats
6 verses 8 cyl's
340 vs 420 hp
nimble vs muscle
finesse vs power
sport vs torque

You know what I'm going to say, and a lot of people on here.

Camaro all the way.

And GM will appreciate the sale too.

they are both very appealing but i think i will probably buy the camaro just because of the econ "trouble" were all in... im probably going to test drive both... and i just dislike cars with low responsiveness...i hate cushy... i hate my audi because it doesnt feel like my velcro beamer... i miss my 350z because it felt so pure and sporty... my brothers charger feels very cushy and so does every american car ive owned... even my fiances xlr feels cushy... i just dont like the feel of the american car... i think what im going to do is test drive a g8 tomorrow

Have you taken out a Corvette lately? (curious)...the xlr, I imagine, was cushied-up a touch being a Cadillac and all.

Have fun in the G8 ...keep in mind the GT's suspension setup is the same as on the V6 Camaro.

well i would love the covette but popularity and insurance are turnoffs for me... this is going to be my daily for at least 2 years... im could be getting a 370z for a little as 30000 while a camaro 2ss will run about 50 in canada... insurance premiums are 3200 and 6000 respectivly and corvette you dont want to know...

i have about 3 months to decide regardless...

I was just curious if you had test driven one of the C6s. I wanted to know if you thought that was cushy.

You get a new car every 18 months and you're worried about insurance..........must be tough.

I'm sorry, but that's the way it came off.
