I hear you, the 2019 was ugly. 2020 is now out and looks better, though nothing to really write home about compared the GT350.

Haha, I know she would yell at me in German. I'm resisting EVs for as long as it's possible. I think they make great ride sharing cars, but not for my own personal use.

I also like the Coyote. My Gen 2 Coyote was tuned and redlined at 7400. The new one go to 7500. Redline on an LT motor is 6500 and I think limiter is 6700. But to be honest every time I ran into a Camaro at Gingerm, Grattan or Mid-Ohio raceways, they always pulled on my on the straights. Even after I was tuned with Steeda CAI.

Yes, if you didn't like the Giulia's interior, you will hate the interior quality. Other than the fantastic seats, both the recaro's or leather buckets, it is a Mustang interior after all. All the money was put into the powertrain/dynamics.

The GT350 is more of the perfect second car. Own one nice and comfy everyday commuter, and then this for the weekends, that'd be a good combo.

Yeah exactly, it would be great as a weekend car. The Mustang is just an iconic car so I feel I need to own one at some point.

Normal Camaro SS's handle very well on runflats, they have good chassis not just good tires.
