Let's be frank, the reason people will pay that $40k is because the M3/M4 are styled better.

What someone said above about the difference in manual transmissions is dead-on. The Mustang had a MUCH better manual than the BMW. Crisp, clean, short shifts instead of BMW's truck-length shifts. Surely I'm not the only one who thinks BMW manuals have always been terrible- vague, long, and mushy.
Agreed, I was a bit disappointed with E92 M3 manual. It wasn't as precise as I thought it would be and the throws are WAY too long. It was for sure an after-thought transmission that was installed. This time I'm opting for DCT.
