Mercedes-AMG is always taking things to the next level, BMW seems to like trotting behind lol

New looks are a bit soft compared to previous gen I think. Merc has BMW on power but BMW has Mercedes on lap times.

BMW can make engines just as well as the others, remember they made a 618HP N/A engine back in 1992

The C63 does indeed sound good, but I very much doubt it would spank the M3. I also do not think it looks very good at the rear. A bit too soft for me.

yeah benz needs to invest more in flared fenders, i love curvacious fenders

i think if your not going to track your car the C63 is just a no brainer because of the motor and interior, lighter m3 may be better on track, maybe

test drove a m4 and liked it, but i want 4 doors, i may look for a second hand M3 next year as hopefully the C63 kills it on sales and there are big discounts.

Yeah I don't know what is with Mercs obsession in having the front wider than the rears! I also don't like the column shifter. It's a sports car ffs. Anyway you can buy my M3 when you are ready to buy a M3. I was initially thinking of getting rid of it now and ordering another with CCB but I just can't be bothered waiting for another. Just use this one and get a competition pack later.
