Be honest with yourself here.
If you genuinely consider the C63 a suitable alternative to an E92 M3, then would these illeged slightly-worse (or whatever) break pads on the production car even had made one ounce of difference to you? Unless you are just buying the car to brag about the spec sheet and magazine text numbers, who really gives a rats ass what break pads ship on the f'ing car?
The C63 is nice though and I am sure you will enjoy it. Just like last generation it has about 10-15% more power than the M3, and a butt-load more peak torque. I'd still take the M3 every single time, but that's just me.
