You would like to test this car against the camaro, but why wont you test it against a vette. The Z06 smokes this car in every way. If your talking about prestige, it all depends on what people like. I for one would never buy a bmw for reliability, for other things but not reliability. I have'nt owned one, but some people I know have them. They need just as much srvicing as any other cars in it's class. They also cost an arm and a leg to get fixed.
