Ok, so my uncle has WAYY to much money and for my 16th birthday, he bought me a 2002 mustang gt. brand spankin new.. well I thought that was pretty damn cool except I had my heart set on a bmw of some sort, because all my friends drive them (one friend has a 93 318is ) another friends garage is (325xi 330i x5 z4) and I was looking at a mid 90's m3 .. 95-98 What do you guys think? I think I could get about 17-19 k out of the mustang, would that be enough for a nice m3? Also .. as far a 1/4 times and 0-60 times, how does the m3 match up against the mustangs? I know the mustangs have a impressive 4.8L V8 with 290 hp.. but they are american made soo.. they have to suck .. Anyway thanks in advance

- If you have any, i would love to see 1/4 mile times as well as 0-60 times

M3 is a great choice, its about the same 1/4 mile time. However, don't buy an M if all you want is a 1/4 mile car, the mustang would be much better.

I have seen some stock M3's pull high 13's.

I think you should be damn freeking respectful for your uncle getting you any car much less a brand new GT. Shit my uncle never bought me a car when i was 17, much less a $30,000 car, much less a car ever. How long have you had the car? if you say less than a year i should kick your ass already wanting another car just cause the one you got doesnt suit your "needs" and by needs i mean peer pressure.
