    i've driven the 2SS camaro, the interior of the 2SS is much better than the LT/LS version of the camaro's and the performance has a huge difference. and when i say huge i'd say the same way as the performance difference of ordinary lancers against the evo. anyway i only choose the camaro because the TS was only asking which looks better and for me the camaro looks much better compared to the GC, but if he asked which is a better overall car i'd say GC then modify it and still save money. or the V8 mustang if the rumors are true.

    btw i can't think of a car that has more blind spots than the camaro, that thing is freakingly annoying to drive daily. luckily i drove it in the states, i can't even imagine driving that in the philippine roads especially in edsa at rush hour.

    And honestly, while the Camaro was nice, Chevrolet's regular car offerings over the years have been a mixed bag. The Monza was a piece of garbage, and I actually liked the Ford Laser we replaced it with more.



    History? Chevrolet is known in America for crappy interiors, poor build quality and terrible reliability. Mention the words "Chevrolet" and "compact" together and you get groans. The only thing worse than the Chevy Cavalier was the Pontiac Sunfire, and Pontiac is also a GM division. At least now, the only dingus left in the line-up is the Aveo (soon to be replaced by the Sonic), but Chevrolet has never been an upmarket or aspirational brand, unless you're a flag-waving American redneck.

    Hyundai's cars twenty years ago were garbage... but so were Chevrolet's. Chevrolet's cars nowadays are 100% better than before, but Hyundai's are 200% better than before and about 25% better than Chevy's (except in the Cruze-Elantra war... I'd call that a tie). So no, there's no real reason to buy a Chevrolet over a Hyundai if you're looking for badge-appeal.

    If anything, Chev-woo's (Chevrolet-Daewoo, since most of the mass market cars are Daewoo sourced) "history" is its biggest weakness here in the Philippines. Too many people remember such "hits" as the Chevrolet Venture (you should read that thread... epic!) and the the Daewoo Espero. Question: What costs less secondhand than a ten-year-old Espero? Answer: A Cornetto!

    Issues with quality, engineering, marketing and management were what brought GM down during Carmageddon. That's why I think it was the right move to reinvent Chevrolet locally under a new management team (TCCCI), to break ties with the old and try to assure people that GM-Chevrolet's history won't be its future.
    so really? you rather choose a hyundai GC than a camaro?? hahaha....
    peace out...

    On a V6 GC and a V6 Camaro? I'm confident I'll get the Genesis Coupe too. 1M in savings is immense.. think about the amount of modifications you can fit on that budget!

    In terms of proper coupe looks the genesis coupe got it. Yun camaro is just a sedan with 2 doors kaya naging coupe. :P

    But I think yun appeal or dating ng car yun habol mo.

    Depende kung ano dating ang gusto mo:

    What you'll probably get from the camaro is mga brief ang malaglag at mga lalaki and little boys na transformer ang tingin ang magpapicture sa car mo.

    With the genesis coupe you'll probably get mga girls looking at your car (depende pa yan sa color). Laglag panty, maybe minsan once in a blue moon may girl magpapapicture sa kotse mo. Then you'll get a lot of haters sa daan like civic SiR, evos, sti, Zs, porsche etc bullying and reving you sa stop lights.


    But for me kung all out looks for head turning, laglag panty, picture taking ang basehan and 3 Million budget. Hands down new MINI ang kukunin ko. Every parking lot and pa gas mo may magpapapicture sa kotse mo. From HS girls to Vicky Belo level laglag lahat ng panty nyan bubukaka pa. For sure nakapila yan para magpapicture. And kaya din ng JCW ang 240 km/h.

    The camaro does look macho and may have the cool effect because it was used as bumble bee if you like transformers. OTOH, the HGC looks svelte, sleek and sharp, much like a panther or a lioness.

    I'd look at the camaro like the buff wrestlers or heavy weight boxers whilst I would liken the HGC to a ninja. Stealthy, quick and precise. Or if you want Bruce lee...

    Since I'm not a fan of big hulking frames, I'd choose a GC.

    BTW, if you'll get a car based on looks alone, don't even get one. Check the car, test drive it, look at upkeep, and most importantly spend time inside it... You won't be spending your time on top of the hood or the roof whilst driving it di ba? touch the interior, look at the cubby holes, the glove compartment and sit on all the seats. Then ask yourself where you'd like to be in? Which among my choices are most comfortable for my passengers? Then you'll have your answer! (sorry I'm an interior kinda person)

    After doing all that, I got myself a GC.

    Cheers.

    Galing mo Daumingshirts!

    I second that! hahaha. Since the TS appears to be young, single and looking for adventure, the best bet would be a mini. Girls really like how the mini looks. Just make sure they're also mini in size, otherwise they'll have a hard time fitting inside. hehehe.

And when I had the roof down and seated properly, my 5'8" height resulted with the windshield's very thick top edge to bisect the middle of my forward vision.

    Beyond my interior seating problems, the MX5 is a great drive for a sports car. Great acceleration feel, handles well and looks cool to girls. The convertible folding hard top is ***y especially when you can take it on out of town trips to less polluted places on the island. Very few cars under the P2M price tag can have the same appeal of this car. (Well, the Genesis Coupe is one...)
    My dad tried fitting himself inside an MX5 at an autoshow and commented it as "Masikip sa loob"

    I experienced that before nung nasa amin pa yung Cooper. Maski mga high-class chiks sa Eastwood nagpapa-picture kasi ang cute (collor yellow parang Mr. Bean with Panoramic Sunroof)..
