This would make a great bumper sticker for Mustang owners.

If money isn't an issue, M3's interior is 3x nicer than any Mustang.
Not really. I am not saying it is nicer than the BMW, but 3 times is a stretch. You obviously have not compared Fords quality increase in the last few years with their competitors.

For me, it's not about the quality of the Mustang's interior, rather that it just looks like sh!t.

I don't think you can find a new M3 for +$60K + taxes. Either way, do 3 Series owners cross-shop with Mustangs?

the point is to demonstrate how far technology has come - when Ponycars are now on par with European performance cars.

Keep in mind, a V6 Camry can out accelerate and out handle most of the muscle cars from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

So I want you to find 10 people, remove name badges from both picture and ask those 10 people what looks better?

They said the BMW? Ok now tell them you would give them 20,000 to select the other interior. What do you think they will say?

The quality has greatly improved in the newer mustangs, but most cars have pretty much the same functions. Button layouts, HVAC controls, steering, radio and pretty much everything else is features you will never use.

Oh and iDrive totally sucks compared to SYNC.

Regardless of the residual of an M3 in 3-5 years a new M3 is not going to be worth more than 25-35, which just in deprecation alone could buy you a Mustang GT.

Oh any maintenance costs are cheaper as well as fuel economy is better on the Mustang.

Can't argue the Mustang's bang-for-the-buck factor, but people shopping for an M3 are not shopping for only raw speed but raw speed with a good dose of refinement.

They are buying a name. There is not 28,000 worth of refinement. The M3 is overpriced.

Oh I certainly agree, but that won't stop them from buying it anyway.
