Don't know where you get your Vette info, but you speak as if it is gospel. Where have you read that a ZO6 won't be out for a year and that the Blue Devil won't be out for 2 years??? Also, didn't a BMW tester/driver beat his best lap ever in an M5 the first time out in the CTSV? Gee wonder what some seat time would do for him??? Now as for weight since you seem to think it doesn't matter....It beat your M3 and it weighs a hell of alot more. Aren't there 4 door M3's, how well do they compare to the 4 door CTSV????
