both cars i think are great, but if i were to pick one up. i think it would be the C63. having driven the ML and experiencing its sheer force and the massive 20k price difference. there is only one option for me.

oh btw. WAY hav fun with the petrol consumption. 19l/100km :thumbup:

Haven't seen too many comparisons where the C63 comes out on top of the M3. Here's a few other videos




Here's one M3 vs C63 vs VXR8
