that said, i am super intrigued by the Shelby. i'm fine with waiting out the initial rush and then if i'm still interested, i'll see if people are ready to deal
+1 on paying for a car. I recently went to several Ford dealers to inquire about the Boss 302. All of them said "limited allocation. MSRP + $10k". It is a really nice car but with that type of adder, IMO, it really closes the pricing gap as compared to an M3.
Thinking long-term, I suspect the Boss 302 or Shelby will be worth a lot more 25 years from now (vs. the M3). Therefore perhaps it is a better investment. But I would rather buy something to enjoy today vs. keep for value.
Lol... In Canada it's completely different.
Before I ordered my 2013 M3 I went to a Ford dealership and negotiated 4k off MSRP for a new GT500.
I told the sales guy I would wait till road tests came out and then decided on the M3 again in DCT and I absolutely love it. Feels so different from my 08 6MT M3.
No regrets here
