Couple folks over at GMI have done the math and once you factor everything in, $1500/month actually isn't that bad.

In my mind the SS is the perfect combo of aggressive looks, with the ability to blend into traffic. Sedans don't usually receive aggressive styling like coupes do. Sedans, especially fast ones, fly under the radar because they're kinda bland. Part of the appeal

Charger? Evo? STi? M3? AMG E63? CTS-V? Hell, even the Honda Civic looks mean compared to the SS.

Of all the sedans you listed, two receive aggressive styling because they're the road versions of rally cars. The rest are all pretty normal looking. Aside from the Charger which is a muscle car. German sedans have always been very subtle with their looks. If I didn't know cars, and I saw an M5, I'd think it's just as fast as every other 5 series. The STi and Evo I would think they're very fast because of the styling.

And I said 'don't usually receive...' not 'they all aren't aggressive'.

Same here, it just looks too bland and generic. I think the G8 GXP looked better...

Bland, come on... it's a sad day when a Civic looks more aggressive than a 415hp SS.

Technically that's an Accord.

No it's not! It said it was a Civic on the interweb, and we all know if it's in the
interweb it's the truth!

2018 Terrain.

GM is making a big deal out of this thing. It's definitely just a rebodied Equinox but with all the hype, I'm wondering if they have something else up their sleeve to further differentiate it.

Any changes for the 2018 Camaro? I see some 17's being discounted already.

Too early for the 2018 Camaro right now. Most of the 2018s that we've seen or will see are all-new redesigned models.
