quote: That being said, I'd buy the 135i before I'd buy the Boss. The 135i is more comfortable and luxurious. And, anyway, if you're gonna buy a Mustang, it might as well be a GT500 or the 2011 GT350.
quote: If you are into drag racing, I agree.
quote: The Boss 302 starts at $42k. Sorry Ford, but the base Corvette is still a better buy.
