It cost's about $2500-3000 just to ship the car and then you end up paying the extra tax. Everything cost's more in England. Their wiring shouldn't take a week to change since it use to cost me about $200 to have it done in the UK.

It takes a week to "totally rewire" the lights?? sounds like a lucrative business he's got there. love the chick's smile, but i think she says "sportier" not "naughtier", hard to tell w/ the accent, still love a girl who can thrash a car!!

Besides rewiring the car is there not more restrictive emission standards in EU? Maybe thats what takes so long for his "service". Also, watching a girl enjoy a V6 makes me wonder what my g/f will do when I let her drive my SS/M6 arriving on rail next week :P hahha

that is of course.... after I have had much driving time behind the wheel and laying some rubber down after it is broken in Wooooo! I cant wait to buy my first set of new back tires lolol

I liked how you made sure to say "hood" instead of Bonnet.

You must be very very wealthy then..I would spend your money on a Ferrari or a Lamborghini... Why pay that much for a car when you could buy others? Strike that, you probably have a collection of those cars already .. Have fun..

I'm an English chick and i cannot wait to get my hands on some American muscle :p and i will be grinning for a very long time, i'm sure.
I LOVE muscle cars.

I'm pretty sure she does mumble "sportier" - though it is hard to tell. Either way - she's right!

Don't you guys get sick of the stereotype that ALL American cars CANT handle and ALL American cars are only meant for straight lines?

God that aggravates the heck outta me...


Whatever, long live the king!

Im pretty sure its just the lights/front & rear bumpers that are different standards. The smog regulations in the US are definitely tighter. Hence the reason why most foreign motors make a tad bid more power liter for liter. (I know that's a bold statement, but relatively speaking its the truth)

The V6 sounded pretty good under throttle, I wonder what it sounded like from the inside? I'm a little surprised she didn't mention the blind spots, cheap interior, etc. that everyone else seems to gripe on.

@Supermans: Hmm unfortunaly not rich! Just USA-carlover. A Ferrari will cost about $500.000 so compared to that the Camaro is still value for money overhere!
You can also buy the Corvette ZR1 for as little as $300.000. :(
