The only difference will be a DCT equipped M3 will narrow the gap between a C63, as the 6MT will offer even less competition. Regardless even if you were to take the situation to the bolt on war of mods (forget the stroker kits, force induction options due to the high cost). Kleemann offers a K2 package for the 6.2 Liter M156 engine that produces up to 560 HP and 519lb-ft of torque with the addition of a set of high flow exhaust manifolds and downpipes with steel sport catalysts and a ECU reprogramming. This package can be obtained for $4000 from a Kleemann dealer. With that being said Iím not sure what bolt on mods for an M3 can be obtained for $4000 that could match that level of performance. In the end itís the same story M3 offers superior handling,
C63 offers superior straight line acceleration.
Well said. I don't think any ///M3 owner really believes he is faster that the C63 in a straight line.
