Just saying.  All are awesome rides but the Vette is a better platform to start off from.

I'm talking MSRP, the corvette is roughly 10k more

It all depends on where you want to start off from.  The STI is a glorified Subaru Imprezza.  The Evo is a glorified Lancer.  The SRT4 is a glorified Neon/Caliber.  You get what you pay for.  I'm not saying GM's Vettes prior to the stingray had phenomenal interiors but you certainly got more bells/whistles.  I find the C6's interior to be more that sufficient.  

 

Anyways...back to the new purchase stuff, picked up this bad boy yesterday.  Already rooted and played around with...LG G3

It's good.  I like it.  I'm just waiting for the mod community to get at it.  For now I've rooted it and put in a bunch of tweaks via Xposed.  

 

I don't miss my Galaxy S4 one bit at the moment.

Awesome ride man!  I wish more cars came with manual (despite auto becoming more superior day by day).  0-60 in two gears!?!?!?  Wow!   Two gear shifts gets me to 115mph LOL

 

I traded my 2002 35th Anniversary Camaro SS convertible with an LS1 and 3.73 gears to buy my new car, and believe it or not, I'm having a blast with the Fiesta ST! Sure, it can't compete with my old Camaro in a straight line, but it is very fun on a twisty road. I love Corvettes too, and I've owned a Camaro Z/28 six-speed with an LT1 as well as my old Camaro SS.

 

Beware of the Fiesta ST at an autocross! ;)
