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.
