lol - they should be ANYWAY. Pops gave me luggage and a handshake when I graduated high school, and that's the truth.

Put it this way - you'll be teaching your kids self-reliance AND you'll be enjoying your hard-earned golden years that much more

Really good question - I know of two areas that actually got revised, I wonder where the rest of the chassis revisions are..

Well it is Edmunds. They're about one step up the ladder from Consumer Reports.

17" brakes mean they fit under 17" wheels.

Different sources list it different ways. Some list the actual disc size as in 328x32 or whatever the metric dimensions are, others just list the required minimum wheel size. If the discs were actually 17" in diameter, there would be zero room for a caliper to fit around it. Remember 18" is to the outer edge of the wheel.

Man, I would sell my sperm/brain/testicles/wifeseggs for that car in the US. I didn't realize it was a 320HP 2.0 Liter. That 94 octane everywhere must be nice.

Yeah, the Camaro vid was rad! That definitely catches my eye every time I see it. BUT, done up as they show it, it looks like it would cost in the Vette range.
