I can say without a doubt - BMW is in trouble with this new Mustang. I test drove a GT today and was blown away. Who in their right mind would buy an M3/M4 for $60-$75k, when you can get as nice of an interior (with premium trim), and an amazing exterior 2015 stang for less than $40k?

Ford has really upped the quality on these new Mustangs. I would say very close to BMW feel.
As you can see from the comments on this board, the "sales competition class" is a really big class. Some people are shopping "BMW Vs. Mustang" and care a lot about the quality of the interior. Others are shopping performance - and only care about "fastest on the hill." Others are shopping price/looks and their shopping list includes a wide list of other cars - including the Genisis Coupe (Which weighs less). It is probably only the "performance buyers" that care about the weight - and they are less focused on cost.
