I love this comment:

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah. BMW SchmweMW. Have you ever seen a BMW M3 driver rockin' a sweet Mullet. Hell, those guys can't even grow a decent rattail. Those fancy pants BMW owners always wear shirts with sleeves cause their skinny chicken arms are too little to get a totally cool AD/DC tattoo. I bet you can't even get a tallboy in the cupholder on that fo-rin panzy-mobile.

Wrong section and a repost of another post that was also originally posted in the wrong section. Not sure it can get any wronger than that.

No way. I had a supercharged '06 GT before I got my M3.

Next question...

Surely this is also grounds for another round of posts on why BMW needs the 4.4L S65 in the car pronto, right?

True enough. Even family cars are dippipng into the low 5 sec range for 0-60 these days. Soon they'll be hitting the 4s I am sure.

The Mustang has some other things going for it too though, such as:

- Can hold its own on a road course too
- Has a tasty 5L V8
- Is a fairly attractive car
- Has an insane aftermarket portfolio offering very cheap power
- Can get you laid real quick at the trailer park or local dive bar LOL J/K

12.7 @ 111.7? This is the worst 1/4 mile that I've ever seen in a E90/92 M3.

I hate retro crap (don't know which I despise more, Mustang or Camaro), and I'd NEVER buy a Mustang even if I couldn't afford an M3, but I have to say at least Ford upped the ante with their DOHC, 32V 5.0L V8. Still intact are the live-axle, cheesy/cheap interior, and driving dynamics commensurate with the price. The GT is the same as it has always been IMO: A fast car in a straight line that drives and feels cheap, because it is .

I honestly think if both the Mustang and Camaro had moved on from the 60s, with modern interiors and more aesthetically pleasing styling, a lot more people might consider them. People who just want a powerful V8 car with a modern drivetrain, and who'd never appreciate what an M3 has to offer over a Mustang. But right now, anybody appreciating a modern interior is not going to stomach the cheesiness of a Mustang or a Camaro. That's great news for Chevy, since the Corvette keeps being the cheapest car to fill in that slot. It has a rent-car interior, but at least it's not retro. A modern '11 GT would eat into Vette sales big time IMO, but we'll never know until it bursts out of the 60s bubble. Good day gang.

I think the sad thing about this comparison is that the M3 has gotten so far from its roots that their even comparable! How the heck is a Mustang less lbs than an M3? That is f*in sad!

+1

It's the price of "luxury interiors" we require...

(I am gonna get flamed for this too)

Fords new 5.0 V8 is as good the BMW's 4.0 V8

Or a 335i for a luxury cruiser and a E46 M3 (The best M3 ever) for a luxury bruiser....the Mustang is impressive, but I wouldn't be caught dead in a car without IRS.

Woah, 100+ HP / ltr vs 80ish? A BMW 5 liter (granted the v-10, but still an important point) makes 500+ not barely 400

Check it out (these are street cars bought at regular dealerships, modified for racing):

Mustangs 1st and second
M3s 3rd through 6th
Mustang 7th
Then come the 911s, Camaros, Subarus, etc

I watched the race today. Mustangs led all the way. They were reliable, very good in the corners, and had the edge on the 2 straights with better acceleration, surprisingly matched by better fuel economy resulting in fewer stops.

Here's the link: http://www.grand-am.com/schedule/res...ies=k&eid=1503
