Cool article.

Notice the how much the Mustang's nose rises/falls with throttle.

That's one of the many reasons why I sold it.

Looks like this will be my next set after my DW wears out. Hopefully it's near the same price as the DW.

I tried the Conti DW tires on mine. Great commuting tire for a 32 mile (each way), mostly highway drive, but the soft sidewall response took away the precision of having an M3. Next tire was the BFG G Force Sport. Provided the handling response, dry/wet traction I wanted but traded the ride quality significantly (and gave a really meaty/wide look in the same size) . It's tough to have everything!

That's the first thing I noticed when I drove my friend's GT. Definitely a muscle car more than a sports car.
