Default Ford Vs....

I like these Taurus Vs. Audi videos:

They should make a Mustang Vs. Imports comparisons, no more vs. Camaro, Challenger, but snooty imports, specially Germans..........

I noticed that my Mustang gets BMW's agitated. I never used to get this type of reaction when I owned Hondas or Acuras. Obviously they feel threatened. I agree, a good comparo of the new 5.0 with Euro pony cars like BMW M's amd Audi A5 might prove interesting.

Ya i do agree with you that a good comparison between mustang and the BMW's and Audi's would be interesting.

...I don't know...its like apples and oranges to me. Although, if the Mustang had a good SMG in it, that would rock.

The new mustangs ride almost as nice as the new BMW's. BMW should be a little worried that Ford has closed the gap on them.

Actually a magazine has done a comparison with 11GT vs a new M3. Said dollar for dollar, you are better off grabbing a GT, saving $20k and having same performance

Every BMW 3-series I see the driver thinks they are behind the wheel of a formula car..I hate that..

Even if the Mustang performs close/better than a BMW product, it still has that BMW-ness that clever marketing has fabricated for it. I don't think the current Mustang being faster than a BMW will cost BMW a single serious buyer.

Most people buy a BMW for the image, so no, the GT's equal performance won't really change anything.
