But yet you drive an M3?

LOL yeah man hence why I'm not biased... Unbiased if anything... I'll admit from stock to stock an M3 versus a regular C63, the handling hands down IMO is better in an M3. The automatic transmission(DCT) in an M3 is by far a lot better and more responsive... I drive AMG's all day long and I've also driven some fast M's but the C63 Black Series is a whole other monster that BMW can't compete with in it's class(here in America).

Agree to disagree! Firstly, it looks like an Accord coupe with a hideous body kit. Second, look at that Pep Boys wing. F***en ugly!

Totally different animals. Form follows function. There is no need for any of that gawdy crap on the BS. You can't argue with the function of the crazy stuff on that DTM car, THAT is it's beauty!

I'm the one that's high? You just tried to make an argument about how it's not ugly based on how good it drives!

I'm not a BMW or M3 nuthugger at all. A lot of my posts around here reflect that.

Maybe it looks a bit like an accord, but what's wrong about the Accord is not its look, it's the performance! And that Pep Boy wing is an option that come in the track pack with some other aero parts! You can also order it like that if you don't like downforce:

p.s. And how exactly do you know that the wider body of the BS has no benefits on the handling!?

Okay my mistake I went off tangent, but perhaps you haven't seen the car up close to appreciate it's exterior designing or perhaps you don't appreciate the aggressiveness of the body styling? I don't know... I'm not here to wage war with you behind a screen about our opinions but it's for sure not ugly IMO... Since it's debut I've only seen three here at the dealership, a white one, a black one, and a matte black one, and honestly man they all look good and damn near drive good... Now for the price however I'd opt to get something different but for a vehicle in it's class it's damn near untouchable.

Weird that you said that as I was thinking that it must be a blast to drive around town...tons of usable torque and it doesn't fall off much by redline.

However....the torque curve of the SC M3 is a thing of beauty. The AMG's curve looks archaic in comparison.

Hahaha hey I work at House of Imports, just noticed this picture... Would you mind telling me the customers name? I believe I serviced this guy's vehicle or test drove it after service.

I think the C63 BS is a very impressive machine. The looks are a bit too extrovert for me and the transmission isn't my fave but the rest of the car is seriously impressive. Please tell us more about the '63 SC kit!

Weistec currently has different level kits available for that platform, so expect something similar to this:

Cant wait to see the ESS setup !

We will be using the TVS blower similar to the one we currently use on the BMW N62 motor "pictured below" along with an air/water cooling system. This blower can produce massive amounts of HP and TQ.

The Accord coupe is an okay looking car for what it is. Not a good look for the car like the C63 BS IMO.

I'm sure it has some benefits that generally come with a wider stance obviously but it isn't markedly better than an M3 GTS which has tasteful fender flares (I will say that the M3 could use more aggressive rear flares).

No amount of downforce (isn't 3800 lbs enough downforce ) can justify that wing (that goes for the GTS too).

I'm just sharing my differing opinion and giving you a hard time.
