Since I drive both the C63 sedan and an M3 coupe, I just think the handling comment is a bit overused.

For those who have not driven a C63, it does handle quite well. Chuck it into an off ramp and you'll be surprised at the grip/composure.

Both fun cars, but not as different as the masses would have you think.

I don't know. Perhaps I had a lemon c63AMG? I will say the c63 handled better than I expected. But it really isn't close to the M3. The M3 feels like a sports car, the AMG does not. Maybe its the tires on the c63? I really just think its the chassis I think the e9x m3 chassis owns the c63s. I like to take turns fairly aggressively.. so yes day to day it would make a difference for me.
