Good luck. Stock they're meh... Intake, turbo back and tune it's a fun car. Just ditch it before the warranty runs out.

Wow that's awesome. What do you like most about it? Handling? I'm not too sure about comparing our cars to bmws and all so I wouldn't know how the two (5.0) compares.

Yeah like I said you can't really compare cause totally different category. But the way it took off I really made my mustang look really slow. Handling was superb it hugged corners like nothing. I was impressed cause this is a inline 6 with a low psi on the turbo so I could only imagine what will happen when I get a better tune

You just thought ford was picky with warranty work...even the oil change in a bmw is over $100. Try $20k when the engine gives out. Local m3 driver just found that out for a dropped valve...

Just don't spontaneously become a crappy drive like all the other BMW drivers? Please?

---------- Post added at 01:43 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:39 AM ----------

Also, I own an Audi A4. The oil change is a b!tch because they require a "special" oil that costs well over 100 bucks a change. I'm sure BMW is the same, being a high end German car manufacture. Regardless congrats on join the German crew

Well yeah you are correct but to work on the m3 is a little bit more pricey than the other series. Also I know better that's why I getting a newer model with a 100000 mile warranty on it so I'll be fine for awhile. All maintenance including oil changes are included as well

Don't even think about Modding your BMW

They will void your warrant for any changes you want to do including the exhaust. A tuner ????? Forget it. These are truly great cars and really do not need anything at all done to them except drive them.

The problem for me is that they are just another car. A Mustang is a Mustang and a very good car to have if you like to do cruises and car shows and just plain enjoy cars along with "CAR PEOPLE"

I like BMW's, Audi's, Corvette's, along with a whole bunch of Jap cars but I will not give my Mustang up for any one of them.

They ride awesome and bet they are fast, but hope you have deep pockets ..

I know struts for that thing cost over 1000 for just replacements, and motor mounts are like 500+

I work at a used car dealer , all I can say is good luck
