Their review was like drinking a flat soda. No pop!

They seemed to really like the BMW Alpina B7.

Dish was weird last night. It let me record and watch it, but when I look for the channel it says I don't have it....

So I looked up more shows and none of them would record, only motor week..

It's the week before. It's not in HD in Los Angeles, so I watch it a bit later on Velocity.

I thought the drag strip numbers were impressive.

0-60 4.5 seconds

1/4 miles 12.9 @ 110 mph

That's a bad@ss car for $37K.

I just did amart search on Dtv. It'll record tomorrow. I don't have much hope it will be very a glowing review. Motorweek in my expirience (along with much of the Auto Media) doesn't have much love for GM or anything Domestic.

All I know is that my 1LE is a bad ass...

It's delayed by a few weeks, but you should be able to watch it here.

I watched it this past week, the review was very good except in regards to the 0-60 and 1/4 mile test. I think they only achieved 12:90 @ 110 vs 12:40 @ 114 for the Boss. A pretty large gap.

and the only way to have true comparison is to do the test at the same time at the same location. Weather and track surface play a huge part in those times. The thing is though, I am not buying my 1LE to be a good drag car! This is a road race tool, and a very good one. So far, in every test that I have found, the 1LE beats the Boss, and even the Laguna Seca version, on a road course. Final thought, for the $6K difference in price, you can go plenty faster in a straight line!

Since the 1LE is a track pack (comparable to the basic mustang with the track pack) and the boss is an engine upgrade; you'll have to compare the boss to the Z28 - good luck with that

No you don't! The 1LE beats the Boss Laguna Seca at what they were intended to do, go fast on road courses.

Not unexpected. The Camaro is heavier, and has less horsepower. The Camaro is about 4% slower in the quarter. The Camaro weighs about 5% more, and has 4% less horsepower, so its actually not a bad showing by the Camaro.
