So I drove the C63 tonight... what a beast. The engine is a thing of beauty and it pulls like a monster, the car I drove didn't have the Performance Package either. Pleasantly surprised as I liked it more than I thought I would. Still not the same as the M3 obviously though as it didn't have quite the same precision feel overall. I think it could work well though for the next year or two pending the launch of the F80 M3. Plus the numbers would work very well too. Arrgh, decisions decisions...

Cayman S is a great car could wait for the 2014 model that is right around the corner.

So sadly my time in an M3 is coming to an end (for now)...

Finalized a deal on a 2013 C63 AMG sedan earlier today. Drove a few cars this week and ran some numbers and this was the best/most interesting option for a variety of reasons. The car is local so I should have it early next week, got a fantastic deal so its working out very well financially too. Specs are below, excited as I know it will be a blast but also sad to be out of an M3. We'll see where I end up in a couple years when the F80 hits the road... I'll still be around here though as I doubt there are any AMG forums as strong as this one.

Magnetite Black - one of the best colors on the market right now, imo. Looks amazing. Congrats on the new car!

Thanks! I wasn't sold on the colour until I saw it in person on an SL550 at the dealer... tons of metallic flake and all kinds of interesting colours under different lighting. Will be a big change from my white M3 but looking forward to it. Going to keep my detailing guy busy I'm sure.

Vise, sorry to hear about your M.

The C63 sounds like a great replacement car

Thanks all. I picked it up on Tuesday and it has been great so far... can't wait until I'm past the break-in period to push it hard.

Hey Vise,
Sorry to hear. Congrats on the new car!

Is this your car by any chance?
How bad is the frame damage?
