Clearly the gearing and chassis is superior on the m3 being able to take the stang with a horspower disadvantage like that. Also you get the luxury of an m3 which the stang doesnt give. If you have the money an m3 is a no brainer. If not the stang is 95 percent of the performance BUT delivering only 30 percent of the subjective 'experience" that a high revving racy m3 gives you in my view
