Compare the two on the Nurburgring, where the M3 is developed, and they don't compare. Fun fact, the S65 was designed from the F1 V8 BMW ran in their racecar. Can Ford say that about the "coyote" motor in the 5.0? There is your 20-30K difference.
i agree with you but 90% drivers will never even pass a race course let alone drive on it
