Well I meant that, for the same pricing ISH you get a lot MORE for your money except for M3 which is less if you get a better deal.

That doesn't seem very remarkable to me. MSRP is $46,625 and GM cars can almost always be had for under MSRP.

Sorry, I still don't know what you mean. What more do you get for your money? The C63 has more luxury and a 4.0 liter V8 instead of a smaller V6 (Ferrari based or not, still a 6).

I remember seeing some new SS's in my area listed around $38-39k last year. That was around $10k off MSRP if I remember correctly. Not sure if that's GM's normal pricing policy, but seemed like a nice deal at the time.

Touche. It does cost more, Im comparing mainly to ATSV and BMW but then the Giulia costs more than those. Its a good medium when you put it that way.

For the same money Alfa Romeo only gives you 280hp to Chevy's 415, with a manual to boot. Seemed pretty nifty to me since the conversation was about how much value you can get.

Look like Alfa is gonna be the closest 4 Door 86 that we will get here in the US in terms of driving connection even the 2.0T I don't mind and the 8 Speed ZF is nothing to sneeze at. Going to see how this car hold up 5 years for now hopefully we can pick here up at used cars for a deal.

Not mine! My brother's! Which just means unlimited access, without paying for the car or insurance.

I'm probably going to get burned for this but...I'm one of the few that think this car looks ugly. But everything else sounds good though
