I'm 30 or 35 and would definitely take the M3. And if you need the four doors (I don't) then there's always the M3 sedan.

Check the motortrend article posted above.

Its just their estimate though. But it is one which I personally believe is probably pretty good.

Then you're old enough to understand the concepts of grammar.

Please explain how it looks years old....

Oh no, I've finally been busted by the scary Maxima-driving, Star Wars bad guy face! For grammar no less! Do me a favor, if you have a chance, walk upstairs from the basement and say hi to your parents for me.

Regarding your inquiry, to me the C63 is typical boring Mercedes sedan design, save the tacked-on addition of "aggressive" boy-racer fenders, tailpipes, and vents. It's a graceless, unlovely, ungainly design that will be unnoticed by anyone but car geeks on the road.

Now, shouldn't you be obsessively searching the other threads for re-posts? How dare someone post something without reading every other posting on every thread on this site? Keep up the good work!

Any news on the IS-F, anyone? I remember it looks very JDM and gaudy or perhaps even vulgar but how does it perform?

A bit off topic, but FYI the IS-F has a 5.0L V-8 that pushes over 400HP (no set number yet) and over 350lb-ft of torque, has a 0-60 time that is said to be below 4.9 seconds.

Its scheduled to be released in Jan 08 with a est. base price of $53K

Lexus is really setting up and trying to run with the big boys this time. The car looks promising but IMO they could have achieved better with their engine.

C63 seems garish compared with the subtle M3

Dude what's with all the personal attacks? You're entitled to your opinion, but just in case you haven't noticed Bangle designs are not exactly on top of anyones favorite list either.
