Bimmer definitely looks and handles better. AMG is not super ugly, I've seen worse, but both cars are amazing.

I have an M3 but I think that c63 AMG black series looks ridiculous! I would love a shot at that car.

I've seen a black series in person and I love the flared out fenders definitely a beefed up AMG!! Didn't look bad at all. This video would by no means make me want to buy a merc though not just based on that..

Both great cars - I'd happily drive either of them, but would only buy the ///M.

The BS definitely has to be seen in the flesh, has a lot of 'presence'. I would personally spec it with the carbon fiber package over that silly rear wing, but other bits you get as part of the Track Pack are pretty cool. I am def a BMW guy, but in this case of asked to chose, I'll check the AMG BS box.
