I'm absolutely in love with the car... I drove one when they first came out and it was freakin awesome! I'm just afraid of the economy.

Personally I have no experience but I have taken a liking to it. I love the stance it has and the power as well. I haven't checked out prices on them yet but I would consider one for my next ride. As of right now its that or the challenger.

It seems like a great car for the price. I haven't driven it, but I checked one out at a car show. The only two things that would be downers in my mind were:

1. The interior seems a little plasticky

2. I am a little worried about GM parts quality. (I own a W-body, so I have some experience here.) I know this one is an Aussie, but I still wonder.

Cant really compare the USA GM's to the aussies, i cant speak for the G8, but the new GTO interior was probably the nicest GM interior in 30 years. The aussies do it right.
