The z06 simply cant compare, interior wise, to the likes of Audi and Mercedes in those two points.
And again that is PURE subjectivity.

As they sold EVERY Corvette made since 1997 - complete with the same interior - so apparently 240,000 people do not agree with your assessment.

More than 30,000 buyers per year do not agree with your assessment - so why the insistance on being right with regard to a purely subjective assessment?

Nobody was being attacked - but again I ask how you react around C5 and C6 Corvette owners when you see the car in person?

Do you walk around saying out loud "Man this shit sucks compared to BMW and Audi"? I am guessing you don't - because YOU would be the one who cares not the 30,000 other people who buy them.

See thats the real point.

There was no defense at all. It doesn't need any defense - again a quarter million C5's sold proves that fact.

Yet again with the liberal style statements - just because the anti-Corvette viewer has an opinion I should all of a sudden NOT have one?

Why is it only acceptable for the counter point to have a say?

There is no need to correct people on their subjective opinion, and I never have - however I have often corrected you and others who make opinionated "statements of fact" based on untruths - and will continue to do so - again thats the difference.
