M4 vs 435

Hey guys, pretty new here but already I've run into a problem. I joined up in excitement for the M4, planning to trade in my 06 Mustang GT on it. But thinking about it a bit this afternoon it dawned on me I could go with a 435 and still keep my mustang... decisions, decisions.

What would you guys do in my situation?

How much of a downgrade is the 435 vs the M4?

Sorry if the question sounds silly, im new to beemers having been a muscle guy my entire life...

I'd get the M4.

But that is me.

I'm not a huge fan of the Mustang.

Only Mustang I like is the first generation... Sure the new ones make great power but they just aren't all that refined to be honest.

The new S550 claims to be a new level of refinement for the Mustang but I think it's too late. By now the competition already is onto new kinds of technology that the Mustang is just now adapting.

You have to consider what the sentimental value of the Mustang is to you..

But I will tell you from now..

That 06 Mustang and the M4 are going to be two completely different cars.

The M4 likely won't feel as quick off the line but around a track the M4 will make the Mustang look like it is stationary.

well exactly keeping the mustang is purely sentimental, its the car that brought me to florida and the car i met my girlfriend in.

part of the reason i want to keep it is that its unrefined, it could be nice to have that variety available. Im not a big track guy, ive had the GT out a couple times a few years back but I like cruising mostly.

How well behaved would an M4 be around town? obviously i know no one has driven an M4 yet but maybe they could pull from some M3 experience?
