All factors that I agree are solid remarks, and are major points why I wouldn't go with the C63. The engine is definitely amazing for Merc, but I wish they skinned it better and attached it to a chassis that didn't have that "unpredictable" nature to it. What a waste.
The "unpredictability" comment is a relative thing, let's not overstate this based on what you read. The C63 has a higher propensity to oversteer due to the huge torque but it is only marginally more "unpredictable" than the M3. Also, the C63 comes standard with anemic Continental tires... replace these (as most would anyway) with wider and grippier tires and the unpredictability issue becomes irrelevant. It is already irrelevant on the street.
