    old yes, new are crap.... (*since there is something called daimler chyrsler, they just use bad parts*)

    bmw looks to ameircan for me (*no wonder, get disgined in calidornia *)

    only audi is left . audi build right know the best cars. my audi a6 looks like new has already 140k km and still looks new and motorpower is incridble and gearbox works still perfect (*a wonder, my mom drove that car for 100.000km and she is really to bold to use a gearbox right, normaly she destroy's it after about 60k km*).

    I can only talk for my personal experience, 6 mercedes, and an american car would die after one year hear in sweden.

    My boss has an brand new E320cdi, my uncle have E270cdi 2 years old and they work perfect, and if you drive 100000km per year you don't want to drive an toyota or honda

    i'm talking about AUDI, get it. mercedes is good, no doubt, but the quaility isn't that good that it wars 10years ago and audi is right know from that premium german brands the one with best quaility. honda or toyota are not a option for me by the way. mayby a toyota crown, but there no posebility to get one in europe without to import it and especially in german it'S hard to get one (*why import one when you nearly lfe next dooor to audi, mercdes oder bmw*).

    edit: pic of a crown, but you can only get them in japan . this think is actually on the them level then a8, 7er or a s-class.

    The Cobra's interior is pretty plain jane...but it gets the job done...

    The seats are VERY supportive...even too supportive.

    The best part about the Cobra is how most people easy mistake it for a GT...they only make that mistake once though...

    Yes, it's supercharged from the factory and comes with a 6 speed manual tranny. It's the same supercharger as the Lightning truck, just with a different intake location (to the side vs from the top).

    It's very easy to crank up the power should I get bored with what I have...just add more boost.

    Ford Racing got 690hp and 620lb/ft (flywheel) of torque out of it.

    http://www.fordracingparts.com/announcements/news10.asp

    Simply changing the pulley and getting a tune will net about 500hp at the wheels and a similar amount of torque.

    People commonly get 650hp and 600 lb ft of torque at the flywheel with a supercharger swap, some upgraded parts and a tune.

    So basically with the above, I can add more than amount of total horsepower the SRT-4 or WRX makes.

    No offense, but the interior is horrible - cheap plastic, ugly colors and lines. That's just my opinion though. 350hp is nice, but 16mpg city sucks. I'm not a bug fan of Pontiac though, so as long as you're happy...

    Yeah, I don't really dig the interior, but I know some of my friends totally would. 24 highway isn't too bad either.

    I'd have to sink thousands in custom work for my car to get to 350hp. :/

    I own an original 1965 GTO with Tri-Power and close-ratio 4-speed from back when the GTO owned the road.
    Well, let`s face it, it still does!!
    But the new GTO looks nothing like the old ones, no hood scoop, no hood tach, no wing in the back, no Hurst shifter, no nothing to make it look like a GTO.
    The new beatles look like a beatle, the new Mustangs look like a mustang, the new Thunderbirds look like a thunderbird...the new GTO looks like everyother car on the road right now. I would never buy one just for the GTO emblem alone.

    Nice GTO JSU, I really like it.



    I think the GTO platform will progress more towards its old roots as new models come out. I definitely think they will get better and meaner.
