BTW, this issue of Automobile also has an article about the upcoming C63. They are really high on this car - looks, handling, suspension, SPEED. They claim that the C63 will be the closest direct competitor to the M3 and may very well be the new king of the hill.
Automobile IMHO has always been pro-MB, much like some say C&D has always been pro-BMW. There was a comparison test last year between the S6, M5 and E63. The E63 won, and the M5 came in last. The very next article in the magazine was a multi-page spread on AMG.
