Far too many similar lines for the C63 to beat it on it's own merit in my opinion. Thats not to say the C63 coupe isn't good looking. But I think it's good looking to me because I like the look of the E92 so much.
Even the interiors, if like the sedan, still resemble the BMW. And in a world where power is cheap now, the precision the M3 provides sets it apart.
As for the 335i comparison, can we please end this? These comments have been going on for the better part of a decade, and in the end you are comparing a modified car to a bone stock one. Even worse a turbo to a NA engine, which for the joy of driving there is no comparison unless you enjoy racing down city streets.
Half the replies on any performance thread can be summarized as:
"My 335i + tune/chip + DP + LSD >>> X car"
