I would still pick the M3 as a track oriented car and a C63 as a DD street car (although the M3 is great for that too). Both are very fast (more than needed for public roads) and even if the C63 with PP is a little faster it doesn't really matter that much unless someone just "needs" to win the next stop light race to fuel their ego.
A C63PP with tune only will rape any FBO M3. More so from a standstill (although wheelspin is massive in a C63PP as you already know). I've driven both (obviously the C63PP less than you) and agree with you with picking the M3 as a more track oriented car. However, MB is catching up quickly...
