While it is true the majority in here are not fans of the MKV, it is not true that the majority is biased, IMO. Objectively speaking, the base C8 is superior to the MKV in every way (excluding looks which are subjective) and its superiority has been noted, or inferred, in various posts by participants in this thread. In my estimation, no MKV comments are being made out of ignorance, the basic underpinning of bias. Not liking something is not the same thing as bias, although it can be when ignorance is the primary source of the bias.@No.92 the majority here are not fans of the MKV so you will get biased responses with that being said the C8 is a better option for what you get, as you noted the options and price add up quickly. I'm excited to see what the aftermarket for the C8 will look like. Part of me also thinks there will be a MKV making more power being released.
I know you have, generally, taken a more wait and see measured approach to the MKV and that, I believe, is a good thing. That said, accusing others of bias because they have an informed dislike of a certain product is, maybe, evidence of your bias against those members of the community who are not fans of the MKV. It seems to me the OP could have substituted almost any <$100k car for the MKV in a comparison to the C8 and I daresay the comments would have been similar, if not identical, to the ones already posted. That, IMO, is testament to the out-of-the-box greatness of the C8 and not some inherent, uninformed bias against the MKV.
