yeah, makes no sense to go back to a 230 after a growling V8, even if it leaked coolant. As a West coast guy like me, you may want to check out Greg Poland at Pacific BMW, he hooked me up with some...

yeah, sorry CBR, saw your posts on the C6 forums, not sure how they didn't catch all those problems. My ride has been flawless. You could always do an M240i vert, thats what I was contemplating...

the metal top mechanism just seems thin and fragile.

The seats are better bolstered, and heated and ventilated, but they don't have the lumbar support that BMWs have.

I bought the M6, so have...

I'm still loving my 'Maro, its an apples and oranges comparison to some degree. Although the Camaro is visually much bigger, the rear set is a lot smaller than the M240's. IMHO, the visceral feel...

The ergonomics of the Camaro are very different than the BMW. I find there's tons of leg room in the Camaro. Definitely apples to oranges, and V-8 vs. turbo 4 is a crazy difference. This will be...

Just to update rhis, ended up going with a 2SS 6MT convertible. I'm sure I'll return to the BMW fold again, but went with my gut and heart (maybe not the mind) on this one. YOLO. :-)

I just drove a Camaro 2SS vert back to back with a A8 M235. Honestly, the Camaro is just too much car, I'd lose my license in a week, and I'm a criminal defense attorney. .. ...

MT vs. A8 on a M235 vert?

I know, its an old debate at this point, Manny vs. Auto, but I'm in a situation where I can either order a M240 Vert custom with a MT, and wait about 8 wks, and have less options, or lease a loaded...

Congrats on the new car! I'm in the same boat, looking for a MT Vert, and there a very few available right now. Sounds like a great deal too, and you're right about MSD's and lease assumptions,...

And although I found a smokin' deal on a 2SS vert, I also found a good deal on a M235 vert, and waffling. . . . towards the BMW, I just trust the brand more. . .

The only thing that puts me off is the lease rates for the Camaro seem high for the price of the car in comparison to the 228xdrive (2016). I would probably be able to get a lot off MSRP of both...
