Back on topic, "NB" it comes down to what do you want? A "straight-liner" (physeudo handler) or something that handles well but in a totally different class of car? BMWs have their quirks as you'll see by some of the posts here, but they also go 300k miles. Can't say that about too many Camaros & most old ones are "garage queens". BMWs aren't cheap to keep, but that's also reflected in resale value vs GM products. I could write a book about the pros & cons of what you're asking but it comes down to what do you want from your ride, what you can afford & how you plan on using it. Make it simple - get both of them.
