I hate to say it =(

My brother recently got a C class mercedes and I drove it for about an hour today. I have to say that I enjoy the feel of the ride better than my camaro. It is nowhere near as fast as mine but the drive is so much better in my opinion. I have come to notice that the camaro feels like a tank with the windows down even lol. Although it isnt a bad thing i like that tank feeling as well lol. Does anyone else feel this way?

You're comparing a luxury car to a muscle car

I ate an apple the other day, and it wasn't as tasty as the orange I ate last week.

I feel that way. Thats why I own both an Audi and the Camaro. Audi for comfort and Camaro for annihilation. I still prefer the Camaro over the Audi though for daily driving duties.

My brother's Lexus LS rides much better than my Camaro also. Thing is that his car is boring, boring, boring.

Maybe you should just trade over to a Cadillac or something...the Camaro is the sports car. I agree though my 13' 2SS is pretty comfy.

I like the comfort and feel of my Camaro just as much as my ex's Mercedes C300. I thought the C300 was kinda stiff.

For the love of.... The camaro is not a muscle car. its a pony car. Specially the guy's 2ls. Thanks to regulations nowadays the srt8 392 is as close to muscle car as one can get these days. The lack of true muscle cars doesn't bump up the pony car up a notch by default. Doesn't work that way. That being said, comparing the way different cars is crazy. Hell the wife's '13 fusion feels more comfortable than the camaro. Doesn't mean I'm going to trade cars with her anytime soon though...
