Agreed!!!!

I really love that GTS though... just something about it.

1. GTS
2. 4.0
3. BS

In that order for me!

Great video! Don't really think that c63 is for the track, it's just for showing off

GT3RS 4.0 > M3 > C63AMG BS.

The C63 belongs in a show, drop that car properly, and it looks good. I don't really think it belongs on the track.

great video. i agree with his conclusions. The fact the gt3 is a real stick would make it the only choice for me regardless of performance.

I would never drive the C63 coupe no matter how fast it was because if FUGLY. It looks like a Honda Accord coupe!

The C63 Black Series is a fantactic machine. I have been driving ours now for a few weeks and unlike older Mercedes models it has very good handling to go along with its raw power. I personally think it has very attractive styling.

I think BMW could have done more with the GTS...cosmetically the changes are minor OEM upgrades...Dinan bored out engine is probably more impressive.

If I were to pick one to be disappointed in, I would have to choose the C63. We understand why the GT3 RS and M3 GTS exist, it's up there in cars you WANT to take to the track. The C63 performs, but it's like Mercedes decided, well we'll improve the car but lets make the car produce more smoke at the rear than the standard C63. As a car trying to de-throne the M3, I would have liked to see Mercedes actually try to refine the C63. It has the power, great but let's try to tune it so it has more balance like the M3.
Lol, it was .1 second slower than the gts. Essentially the merc and BMW posted identical times. The gt3 was the only one that stood out in terms of track times.

Much better than the old system. Close to DCT but still a bit less responsive.

Funny you should say that since the C63BS is 2 seconds faster then the M3 GTS on the Ring.

Thanks for the feedback!

Love your black series, amazing! Is it your personal car?

I'm looking to replace my car with the 2012 c63 p31 (non black) next year. My main concern was the mct
