Now this is interesting...

C63 priced like the M3... seems that the M3 bashing has begun!!!

A more interesting take .. an M3 used to dry the track to prove that the GTR is more composed than a 911 TT... wow... since when did the M3 become everyones b****

I'm lol big time at Lexus for their stupid stupid pricing. WTF do they think they are? Seriously. Here in Canada, MSRP for their entire lineup has been slashed, on average, by $ 5,000.

Since BMW tried to pawn off the M3 with too much weight and old technology.

If Nissan produced the GT-R in the numbers it deserves, M3's would be discounted more than they already are.

I have to concur... the first two are really irrelevant as they are 7/8ATs but between the M3 and S5 its tough, unless im tracking the cars.

But lets consider the demographics for this one shall we?? I beleive that there is a larger percentage of the populace that buy cars like the 335, M3, S5, C- AMGs for their feral power and brutal performance. MOST of the people spending that kind of coin would rather upgrade to a larger size of vehicle.

Granted that the S5 is the best looker out there (IMHO), but a 50K price tag, is surely a hit/ miss. Also Audi has always played second fiddle to MB and BMW. Maybe their pricing is to attract staunch Audiphiles which they will find to make their current numbers. But you have to understand this....if they are trying to woo the rest of the market, I beleive their current strategy is all wrong. I mean for 3K more, you have a choice of a far more superior car (yes... the C63 is the best mass produced AMG to date --- if there is such a thing, every bloke on the planet who can drive worth a plug has claimed so), why in gods name would someone get the S5. Also I honestly feel that the 335 is better than the S5 (dont chew me out here), performance and practicality wise.

C63 at that pricing will be a solid contender for the dollars of people shopping that range. Crappy interior, no manual transmission and controversial styling aside, the allure of that big torquey 6.2l V8 is very strong I must admit...
