After driving his E46 M3 I want more power but there isn't anything out there like a BMW. But then again I only have 255 hp and the mustang v6 comes with 305 hp. I'll have to spend a lot on my car to make it faster and even then it won't be as fast as a v6 mustang. I was planning on installing Coilovers, Intake, Headers, Quads, Mtech Body, AA tune, etc within the year but I'm now considering just going with a Mustang...
what would you guys do? Mustang or stick with my 330 and throw all the mods on? Don't really want to leave the euro scene lol. If the argument is just for looks the e90 wins but I honestly don't mind for looks, let's keep performance in mind. Thanks guys!
I just bought a 335 selling a 2011 Mustang GT with the new 5.0L
The car was a beast... but extremely unrefined... fastest thing I've ever personally owned though.
I'm now learning that my 335 with a few simple bolt ons and a tune could keep up with if not at least get pretty close to a stock 5.0GT.
If I was you I'd go for another BMW but this time trade up to a 335. even if its a little older.
just my two cents. I loved my mustang, but it was a whole different world. I dont think I'da ever even considered the V6.. the power in that car was the only thing that made it worth it, and I can't imagine the v6 version even with 306hp felt as nice as a BMW to drive. (even if u do "only" have a 330)
