New C63 coupe bases at $66 900 with the M3 coupe at $71 900.

Full load is "only" $82 140 for the Merc while the M3 climbs all the way to $92 100 with DCT. This gap was still the same when I looked at comparable '08's.
The M3 is sure expensive in Canada.

1. SKINNY rear tires. You've got 444 ft lbs of torque going to the rear wheels and MB decides to fit 255's!?!?!? Really?

2. The new Speedshift 7 speed is clunky on downshifts. I wrote a brief review on it recently.

3. The damn traction control turns on EVERY SINGLE TIME you go ANYWHERE NEAR the throttle. After about 10 minutes you get fed up with the power being cut so often.
Well I was already thinking of putting 245 or 255 re11 up front and 275's re11 in the rear, those babies should cure much of the traction issues. I have
245 Front / 265 Rear re11 combo on the M3 and they just relentlessly grip the road.

+1... nothing a set of wheels/tires can't fix.

I test drove a c63 edition 1 with the black matte paint and development package about a week ago. I absolutely loved it. It is an AMG that actually turns. The handling was very good. It was fast as hell, sounded amazing also. It was definitely lacking enough rubber. The Black series should correct that with adjustable suspension, wider track, better aero and brakes. I got in line for that one. The 6.3 V8 is a great NA engine just like the E90 M3 V8 is. As a daily car the C63 would be great IMO. The M3 would have a little edge in handling.
