C63 interior vs. M3 interior, my vote goes to...

the C63. Damn that looks good. Especially the seats.

It looks nice with that color on the seats. Have you sat in one? I think the quality of materials in the M3 is nicer than in the C63. But the C63 does have that muscle-car engine.

Nice pics, thanks

The C63 currently has the best interior of the bunch, it's finish is the one which closely mimics the Audi RS4 but obviously is much more modern in design. There is a definite sense of occasion from the C63 which isn't present in the M3.

+1 agree

but I much rather have the Black seats. I sat in one and to me those Are Seats !

heavier set owners tend to complain they are snug. thats the way I like it. Like a space rocket seats

the dash is too elegant for me, but its okay... you feel rich especially after getting yourself in a $70k debt, at least you can see where your money went

If anyone get a chance to see and start the engine, rev-up the accelerator at least, the car sounds like an Aston Martin, its Full and Rich... no after market needed here

AMG 40th Anniversary did the wheel/brakes

you wouldnt want to know the mpg so forget it

I'm still going for my M3

Wish they had a red interior for the C63. MB is rolling out a red interior for the new SLK350/55AMG. Looks pretty good.

I don't like pop-up Nav screens. Also, don't like the speedometer needle, too fat and short. Dash looks too plasticky and I have heard that is apparent in person.
Seats do look better in black. US definately getting those seats?

Yes sir, the US is getting those. People have already taken delivery on the C63 here in the USA. The Sahara Beige interior pictures I posted up top were taken of a US-spec car at the dealer.

NO after-market mods???? they are already working on bringing C63AMG to its full potential. Few have already gone to the AMG center in Europe and apparently with just a new program, it will be 520hp.
Many are working on this chip and will be out sooner.

Cons for C63AMG - no damping control (always harsh ride), no keyless go option for US models.. ( what were they thinking...), as much as i love 4 doors, i don't need it this time.

I dont see that happening here in the US, Merc guys here are pretty lame, they even bring their cars to the dealer to check and change oil. Its going to kill their resell. most Merc are best left alone I think.

I bet folks wont even have an after merket for those bumper amber reflectors

I bet Dinan has something in store for the new M3

I love the 2-colour seats. That's smart. Hard to decide between that and black though. Black would be more practical (wouldnt get dirty as quick) and would look stealthy. Choices, choices lol.

I'm not such a fan of pop-up screens either, but the C-class interior is better than the 3 series in real life. I feel that the E9x interior has went downhill in some respects since the E4x design.
