I have to say that although it was a good car, I don't at all miss trading it in for a similar era M3. Perhaps I should have splurged for the premium pack in the mustang!
Thanks! Mine was Track Pack with a lot of Boss 302 parts. I also completely re-did the suspension. It handles great. But the thing I miss the most is the V8 and the way it would wind out. It was tuned, so redline was 7200 and it would get there in a hurry with 3.73 gears. Definitely faster over 60mph than the M2, and it pulled hard to 160mph. M2 can go 168, I've tried, but the Mustang made it an adventure.

My M2 handles better, and the chassies is more refined. I really just miss the instantaneous throttle response, torque everywhere over 2000rpm and the intoxicating sound of an NA V8.
