i would wait till the cars have been out for a bit, at this rate getting an m3 will take a few months on its own so id just be patient and lets see what problems or issues come about on the US version. I think in this case the M3 but based on the reviews im getting very questionable.

at first i didn't like the c63. but eventually the interior and the standard features list got to me. but i will say this m3 sedan<c63 but m3 coupe>c63. although you are getting a 6.2l with the 63 it is an automatic, nothing wrong with that but the m3 has manual and the new godlike 7 speed ksg .

the driving feeling of the amg and ms are way different to. the m always feel driver oriented making the driver really have feel for the car. the benz on the other hand is just a bullet. push the pedal and your out. nothing really special to the drive to it.

this is from riding and driving m coupe, m3, m5, c55, clk55, sl55, e63, and a slk55.

The C63 reminds me of a baby elephant that has too much power for its own good and doesn't have the means to put it all to works. E92 M3 for me.

I would honestly need to drive the two back to back for a good hour each before I made up my mind.

Neither cars are light. I have to agree, if you wanted a "light" car try an E30 or some company called "low-tus".
