So I drove the C63 tonight... what a beast. The engine is a thing of beauty and it pulls like a monster, the car I drove didn't have the Performance Package either. Pleasantly surprised as I liked it more than I thought I would. Still not the same as the M3 obviously though as it didn't have quite the same precision feel overall. I think it could work well though for the next year or two pending the launch of the F80 M3. Plus the numbers would work very well too. Arrgh, decisions decisions...
