I'm close to 8000 miles on my GT and it is still tight as a drum. I pocketed a clean $20k in savings over the M3 for a car that lacks only in prestige and looks but is the equal or the superior in all other aspects. Both cars are very late in their life cycle, I'm sitting on my wallet until the C7 Corvette, F30 M3, and the Porsche 991 Carrera S. All of these cars are going to be major updates, especially the M3.
It's definitely on the Forums - ...

Regardless, I'm am not bashing the 'Stang, just a matter of preference. Just saying that they can compete in every aspect is definitely far from real. Theory and practice are two different things. Theoretically the 'Stang can keep up, but in reality, they're two different classes and two different cars.

Mustangs are starting to compare to the M3 in certain categories...but come on. I'm new to the thread so sorry if I missed this, but did you actually own an E92 M3?

My SC'd E92 is working out just fine for me Just pulled on my buddy in a GT-R the other day That's my recommendation... a couple mods and a SC kit turn these things into monsters.
Definitely not the same in any stretch of the imagination.
