Love the handling comments...

I concede my M3 was more nimble at the edge than the C63C at the track and the C63 has skinny tires relative to its torque and weight; however, I think I am faster in the C63. Mine is the 2012 with the MCT, suspension tweaks and P31 + LSD. You can also look at ring times for what they are worth, the 2012 C63C PP is 4 secs faster than a E92 M3.

That being said, the M3 is a great all around car and very balanced. This guy (if the OP is not trolling) simply baited you with a faster car, there is no question the C63 PP will devastate a stock M3 coupe in a straight line, let alone a convertible. My stock C63C PP feels noticeably faster (torque partially) than my tuned, intake and full-exhaust E92 M3.

Pretty much sums it up!

What year is your C63? Your X-piped M3 is as fast as a tuned P31??

What's so cute about it? They stated facts.
While e93 M3s are slow due to the extra weight, it's definitely not slower than a stock 335.

No way not as fast at all. But its not getting smoked its in the same ballpark..0-60 it stays within 2-3 car length. 60-150 is gains alot more. But bottom line is im not getting smoked. 2012 c63 coupe Red. [QUOTE=DiscoZ;12323497]What year is your C63? Your X-piped M3 is as fast as a tuned P31??[/quote]

Look....here's the deal.....If what you care about is smokin' asses from a stoplight, go buy a GTR and get a $995 tune. You will smoke everything on the road except a Veyron, CCX-R, and 911 tt-s with a $995 tune.

A drop in filter for 100 bucks maybe for 5hp but do not need an intake.

Pulley if you want but for 5 hp not worth the trouble.

Delete your cats, add some race gas and put in a BMc filter and you will have 30whp extra on tap. Should be enough to hang iwth a non powerpacknon tuned c63
All good until the C63 owner spends the same amount of money tuning his car. No use comparing stock to modded. We all know a Civic can be modded to blow an M3 off the road.

At this overall level of car and performance, it is really all subjective in terms of what you want. Anyone who bought an M3 could have bought a C63 is that's what we were looking for.

Pretty impressive M3... can hang with a car that traps ~118mph stock and over 120 with a tune. Nice set of cars, I wish I could have kept my M3.

As others have said, people should just be happy with their cars and any car can be tuned to make it fast. I got smoked by a crappy 4.6 modular Mustang in my M3 - it was supercharged, which is not expensive for those things.
