Totally agree. I'll not even consider the car if I can't get a manual. It's just that simple.

I just made the switch to an '11 C63 P31 Car.. and love it. But I gotta tell you... seems small after the GTR... I may need to do an E63 car in the next few months. I love the torque, hp and drive feel. I wish a bigger tire/wheel setup could fit in the back.

Good times for all right now with so many great choices.

+1... a set of 275 PSS or RE-11 and traction woes are all gone.

Yea, I don't know why everyone is always complaining about the skinny rears on the c63. Once the OE's wear out, slap on 275's and BAM!

I could be wrong but the point is that this car Looked/sounded AMAZING. Those extra wide fenders had me like At that point I asked myself... Should i consider one of these after i've spent 2-3 years with my current E92??? (I don't really intend on upgrading to the 2014 M3/4 as of yet.)

Soooo I came home tonight and searched online and found this M3 vs C63 AMG comparison;
http://www.caranddriver.com/comparis...g-coupe-page-2

Obviously its not black series in the comparison but i wouldn't consider a black series C63 due to its much higher price tag (i'd much rather get into a Porsche for that price)...but how about a normal C63 with a black series kit? Would any of you current e9x owners consider the C63 AMG coupe if hypothetically speaking you could swap it for your e9x right now?

Facts: C63 has more torque & more horse power than an M3 and sounds better stock. Not to mention it's got a really nice interior & looks VERY appealing with that black series kit.

Lets get some opinions!!!

Some images for your reference:
Have you seen the price tag on the Black Series? 2x the price of a new M3!

Yup... totally agree.. actually just purchased a set of the Euro Spec only AMG wheels (V Spoke) and they have 265 PSS on them... once they wear out... I'll get 275's mounted!

I'm just saying on my M3 I had 11's in the back... and 305's.. fit easily.

Getting even a 10" wheel on the back of the C63 just isn't as easy.

But believe it or not.. the car even hooks good on the 255's... has so much torque... that you nail it it'll spin first... short shift 2nd... and the car's gone.

Peace,
Dave

Not really. M3 loaded up here is ~$86K before tax. C63 BS is $109K.
