Right, we all get that you work on your own cars. You have your brownie points for that, already. The question is clearly stated, why are enthusiasts reviewing the car with performance/driving feel reviews and the big paid magazines, not?

Hint: has nothing to do with being able to DIY on the car..

Not looking for brownie points cupcake. My answer, same as above, is that I don't care about the car/have interest in owning one, so I have no comment on why some reviewers like it and others do not. It's not something I have given thought.

Lol cupcake? First time a man has called me that.

It seems you have a lot of interest in cars you have no interest in, as with the mustang, you continuously post the reviews (which you clearly read) in each thread.

Anyways, thanks for the answer

I posted 1 review of the Mustang? And mostly because I was surprised it didn't just crush the Camaro.

Otherwise, sorry I don't care about the M3/4 enough to have an opinion?

in order to stand out, you have to say ridiculous thing. if everyone like certain car, they have to write something bad about it to get more view. typical strategy... LOL

Regarding the Mustang v BMW steering, that comment is a joke for anyone thats driven the new mustang. Was it leaps better than the other muscle cars I test drove, yes. Is it better than the BMW steering of this generation, no.

Well congrats, sir. You definitely stand out. However, you still stand in the shadow of your grammar.
