Question M3 vs Cobra!!!!

How will a 2004 M3 (just wheels and tires) compare to a stock 1999 Mustang Cobra? Pretty much just curious about all aspects (freeway, drag...) Thanks

Mustang guy trolling the boad finally paid off!- 99 Cobras had power problems and didnt make as much as they should have, only like 270 rwhp. You should blow one away pretty easy if its stock, they need big gears to wake them up, if its stock, race him from any roll or stop you'll beat him. However, if it has any gears 4.10s plus, he'll be right next to you if not pull away.

Yeah most of them made about 270 on average to the wheels, but I've seen anywhere from 260 to 280. And like I said these cars are absolutely deadly with just very minor bolt ons. Basically 4.56 gears and slicks will make the car run mid 12s, literally.

BTW stock ones usually hit a 13.4ish at 102
