Soooo somebody correct me if I'm wrong. The auto journalist drove the M3 GTS and the professional race car driver drove the C63 AMG BS and the Merc only beat the M3 by .03 seconds? What would happen if they switched cars??

You're mistaken. Jason Plato, the journalist, is a seriously good race car driver.

I don't care if the M3 were 5 seconds slower, I would still prefer it over that MB. In my opinion just so much better looking than the C63. Just doesn't look right as a coupe.

agree with you if you are talking about the regular versions of each car

but the merc black with the widebody fenders front and rear looks vicious and I love it. the gts bmw looks too much like the regular m3, id rather have the regular m3 and a boatload of cash. to me, the merc black is a much different car than the regular c63, and thus more special IMO.

both sweet cars that sound great and ripped it up out there

Whats the difference between the two upgraded versions of the car except the m3 GTS doesnt have a huge body kit vs normal m3.

Same guy should have driven both cars to make it apples vs apples.

I think the C63 would be a great car but in my part of the world there are just too many regular C coupes and sedans with the AMG kit running around; it dilutes the exclusiveness of owning the actual car. Also, pretty much the same engine is found in all the AMGs. I like that the S65 is bespoke to the E9x M3. First and last of its kind.

And BMW isn't diluting the ///M with all the M Performance models and kits running around?

The S65 engine is by far one of the best engines in the world but nobody can deny AMG's M156 engine. I'd be happy with that one too...

Ive had an E92 M3 reasonably modded (header back RPI race and tune) and have a C63 Black Series--- no comparo in power but I have to say the DCT really narrows the gap in daily driving. You cant go wrong with either and I still, to this day, miss my E92. The Black is my 7th AMG and my favorite ever- Its what AMG should have done from day one; make a drivers car that is ok in the luxury department vs making mash and go stop light beasts. The Black wont be for everyone, the coil over set up from the factory is less forgiving and it misses some interior luxury must haves in a 120k car LOL. But its a car I wanted to try out and it hasnt grown long in the tooth for me..... yet.

Thanks for the kind words--- I was kind of late in the game when I got it (last July) and all the aero package/track pack deals were gone as well as white ones. I think at first I didnt want the wing but now reflecting back I think the wing would be kind of unique.

Here is a terribly poor video quality of my exhaust... But the sound is there and you can get an idea of how great this car sounds

Sick! Car looks so BOSS. The C63 AMG Black is probably the only car I'd trade my M3 for.
