    I think the tactic here is to convince people to just go ahead and get the V8. For just 400k more, it's absolutely loaded to the gills. Even better, the sound! The fury! The handling! They didn't let us drive it, but from the short passenger ride, it feels about as fast and as competent as a BMW M3 minus the punishing ride. The M3 has a bigger back seat, though.

    The Mustang is no longer a pony car. It's a real sports car now. This one's a winner.
    The M3 has a stiffer suspension compared to the current Mustang?

    If backseat is tight, you can alway use the space for your luggage.(as someone here suggested before, mukha nga lang tanga pagginawa mo yun)

    The last V8 M3 I rode was stffer. Not sure if they've changed the suspension specs since then. Mustang feels as supple as the Genesis, but with much better damping and body control.

    There should be enough trunk space for your needs. Legroom is really disappointing... Despite pulling my seat forward to brace against the footwell in the corners, the rear seat was still close enough that if someone was there, I'd feel their knees in my back. Still... for the performance and features, can't complain too much.

    makes sense if loaded naman pala. But if they add a stripper model to reach 2m or below, nakuuu alam na :D

    Yup, may mga time na aantok-antok ako at nakakabig agad ang manibela sa parking, nagugulantang na lang ako sa ingay, uma akyat pala sa center island yung rear-left wheel. So far, wala namang sabit ...
