This got me seriously thinking...

Don't get me wrong I love my M3, hell call me loyal fan boy if you want, but there are just somethings about the M3 that keeps me coming back. With that said, Merc C63 AMG, I mean car is a beast and this version is nothing short of spectacular. Seriously, I think BMW needs to pay close attention....

CarDriver review said this .... And I quote ... Whatever they mean by this

The Edition 507 will be unveiled at the Geneva auto show in March and hit U.S. showrooms in the summer. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but we expect the 507 to split current C63’s base price of $62,405 and last year’s limited-edition Black Series, whose base sticker was $108,575. Not available stateside, sadly, is the C63 AMG Edition 507 wagon, which will be sold in Germany and elsewhere.

End quote

I expect it to hit close to $100k easy with some options.

My 2011 C350 4MATIC with all options was near $70K hire in Canada ... In the US that may be around $55K I believe.

BTW ... I think my C350 has plenty of power no need for more

These high powered C63s are a joke .. 507hp on 255 tires and no LSD? Oh, and an AUTOMATIC transmission!?

What? My fully loaded C63 with PP was only slightly over $80k.

Canadians get ripped off when it comes to buying automobiles. In the US a car will typically cost 20 to 30% less than the same will cost in Canada. At least that's how it was for my M3.

Nothing but lots of fancy camera angles. I don't like the styling. Nothing spectacular at all. U can put a lot of goodies on your m to make it looks much nicer. Ps. I like stick. It doesn't seem to be an option.

Drive an AMG...you won't buy it. Unless you don't like driving.

Until there's a DCT or 6spd its just way too boring. I've been in some very fast automatic cars and they are just sooo dull. Honestly even the PDK on my C4S that I has was too "perfect". It felt too much like an auto. It may have amazing shift times etc but not as fun as the DCT. I hear the newer ones are more aggressive though!

$58k for a C350 is insanely high. that car is worth no more than $45k-$50k new, and that's even pushing it....say 6% tax, you paid $56k...wow insane. I wouldn't pay anything close to $1 over $45k

Remember I live in Canada so the pricing of a car is always 10% higher than what it is in the US. Also in Canada, they offer the 4-Matic which is essential for winter for an extra $3,500 which brings the base price to $48,000. The car would have cost around 63K but I managed to get some off.

The c63 on the other hand, was $77k-$80k in Canada. It's crazy that there is such a large discrepancy between Canada in US. I really don't understand why, maybe it's because demand is slightly higher in US thus transportation will be cheaper compared to Canada?
