I owned c63 before and couple of e9x m3, c63 is boring to drive. It feels like a fast C300

Yes to either

Here are my thoughts... C63 and M3 comparison My only caveat is the C63 in the discussion is a 2012 and they made upgrades to the car so if you are looking at an earlier model, not all my comments may apply.

Hasn't this topic been discussed before?

May want to do a search or check the M3 vs... Section of this forum.

Many times, but one more doesn't hurt.
OP, I've driven both... Obviously, I prefer the M3.

OP- as you have suspected, we're all biased on this side. Take it from an objective (somewhat) expert from C/D, C63 loses by a margin.

I really liked the power of the C63 (during a test drive), but it didn't feel as manageable as the M3. With the C63, I felt as though the car was always on the edge of its abilities (or maybe I was pushing it too hard). However, with the M3, I felt like the car could take everything I threw at it and it was still asking to be pushed harder. Just my $0.02.

Agreed. This thread is replicated almost as much as "Duh, what color should I get?"
