Australian C63 vs M3 Test

From Wheels Magazine.....

http://www.wheelsmag.com.au/wheels/s...2574420003AD06

They prefer the C63.....becuase it's easier to drive and (as in Canada) cheaper here.

well... editing my post... I won't be test driving tomorrow because I just drove it now! The engine is incredible, the suspension is very good, the steering and turn-in response weren't as good as the M3, perhaps due to the tires. For a 12.4:1 steering ratio (i think that's what it is) it didn't feel that quick. The car has neck-snapping acceleration though. I haven't been in a car with that kind of sensation of speed in a long time. I really wanted to love it but ...

I need to drive the M3 again.
