Its already being compared to M3 standards and beyond... and thats saying a heck of a lot especially for an American car and especially starting under 30k.
You give the M3 WAY TOO credit. It has lost the Grand AM championship 3 times in the last 5 years to a......... Mustang. If you were going to spend 65k on a car, would it really be an M3? Great car, but WAY overpriced!! And they sure don't hold the value, I've checked. As for "has always been", you'll make some cobra owners (nicknamed 'M3 killers') laugh.

Not all the same parts are used on race cars as production cars. My BMW out drove my camaro and mustang with no troubles. They cant compare. For sure the bmw is a much more solid car. This is why it sells for more.

My Grandfather worked for gm as a painter and he drove mostly fords. When he got older he drove gm for the discount. But I think it has a lot to do with where u work and the things you see rather then what you cant see. I am sure if he worked at ford he would have drove gm.

Had GM made a Camaro comparable to the stang, I would have bought it. Not a Ford guy or a Chevy guy. I gave a guy in an SS the thumbs up the other day. I flip off the idiots that buy Japanese and German cars. That's the enemy, talk about a HUGE transfer in wealth!!! Like Donald Trump says jokingly, if we quit buying Japanase and Chinese products, they won't have the money to lone us! As for German cars, they are the most over-priced cars on the market today. Period. And they don't hold value, the average asking price of a 2006 M3 is 35K, the Mustang GT is 20k (count=1,247). 2001 M3 is 13K, 2001 Mustang is 11k. Look at the original prices and you do the math.
Man.. you've gotta get out more. Even though I'm buying a mustang... it won't touch my bimmer at the track... not a chance. Two different types of machines.. both great cars, but different worlds. And why would you flip someone off driving a bimmer? That's odd.

Funny bc yesterday was the day-------

I was cruising along soaking in the sunshine in my 5.0 Vert after 4 hours of detailing it zaino style-----

I was on a one lane road, and behind me whole way is a young kid in a "Bumble Bee" styled Camaro

It then turned into a 2 lane-----

He immediataley hopped in lane beside me. So there we were, back rural country road, and at a light. He looked at me and said "lets do this" i replied---"you dont want none,this is a 5.0 here" (i noticed him check out the 5.0 badge) he then said "nice car" i replied back by telling him the same.

Light turned Green.

Obviously i had a perfect launch due to my AUTO

I took him by about 2 car lengths and he cdnt catch up.

Next light asked me if i had modded it,i told him its brand new and only has 100 miles on ODO and bone stock---

We then both again admired each others cars and went our seperate ways-----

I will say that from the fact that I have got rid of 4 camaro's and kept the stang all this time is due to how it makes the girls look and how fast it is. I do miss my Camaro's though. However chevy lost me when they left us out of the lineup in 2003. That was a very stupid thing to do and it never made since to me.

But rest asured that even though I hate ford and the stupid 4.6 I am happy they finally brought the 5.0 back, And I will vote accordingly.
