If GM keeps that crap up this car will be forgotten about by consumers like the 4th gen.


It's not supposed to tell you about the car. (that's what the website is for) It's supposed to make you WANT the car. It's supposed to grab your attention not on how much horsepower it will give you, but what EXPERIENCES it can give you.

As soon as the commercial started I thought they filmed that shot at this beach!



No house on the cliff though!

That commercial was shot on Pacific Coast Highway at Mugu Rock (the big rock on the left). It's pretty famous and it's been in a ton of movies and commercials, recently Iron Man in the shot where they're racing the to the airport (shot at Mugu Naval Air Station).

It's right up the road from here, about 25 minutes or so before you hit Malibu.

A Camaro off the line doesn't sound like that. They come so muffled and I don't know why. You have to buy your own exhaust kit for that kind of sound. I haven't looked for a related thread, but does anyone know why GM muffles them? They never did that to the previous generations of V8s. That's my biggest pet peeve of the 5th gen.

All cars come with mufflers. My last three 4th gens were all just as quiet if not quieter with stock mufflers.

It's called emissions. Complain to your government reps.

Not to be picky, but someone at that ad agency was obviously watching Quantum of Solace before they came up with this concept
