Just got smoked by a c63 amg!

Hey peeps,

Was driving down the dual carriageway when at the lights, a mercedes c class pulled up next to me, thinking it was a crappy 320d i decided to to give it the beans as he was egging me on too.

Little did i know it was a c63 amg..........

I could not keep up with him, felt rather deflated.

Now i need to know what mod can i do without spending an arm and a leg to make that merc eat my dust!

All suggestions welcome....

Full bolt ons will beat a regular C63 quite easily but not sure about a C63 with performance pack. I only raced a buddies regular C63.

As far as what I had on my 08. Pulley, catless x-pipe, exhaust, air filter and Ecu tune.

No such animal! Speed=$$$
Pulleys ($250+), full exhaust ($3500+), intake ($300+). Ballpark figures but should keep you in the game with any c63. Driving ability is factor as well, and you can't buy that! MO.

FYI..my boy has this car and grabbed ~75HP and 90Ft-lbs of torque with just a tune..the car is a beast.

From what it looked like, it was a stock c63, in your opinion, do you think the mods you have would be enough to blow out a c63?

Can I ask you how you knew it was stock?..as I told there are substantial gains for this car with only software tuning..supercharging the m3 is the route to go..if you can spare $20K..

Was just making an assumption as if that was 550+ hp it would have completely left me but it didn't.

Your assuming the driver was really getting on it..which you dont know for sure..either way,.an expensive deal to get the M3 competitive..

The balance of the m3 is what sells it..its def not the fastest car on the road..but I do feel its the one of the most balanced..good enough for me..for now..

1) M3 is not for drag racing, maybe you bought the wrong car.
2) Don't race on the street! Not safe and huge ticket/ criminal charge if you get caught

Why dont you ask him to race you on the track and he will go to the C63 forums and start a thread that reads "I just got smoked by an M3!"
If you got any track skills that is

C63 Tuned picks up roughly 50whp... A pretty sizeable gain as compared to what we get.

They are just all out torque monsters, but watching the M3 vs the C63 on Top Gear did it for me. The M3 is a much more well balanced car. No disputing the C63 is fast as hell.

I have beat a couple in a straight line but don't think they were modded.

Firstly if it really was a 'crappy' diesel that pulled up why would you want to give it the beans, secondly after getting beaten why do you feel the need to compete with a C63 on a straight line.

So as a possible solution go get yourself a new car with a lot of low end torque and in automatic where you can just mash the throttle pedal, 2nd hand C63?

Considering that the OP was in a E93, this deal was done before it even started.....too much weight to start with and not even sure of what car he was trying to drag race ......................Phil
