think both cars are sick but they were built with very different enthusiasts in mind... so perhaps this is why people on this forum like the bimmer more...

lol +1, it's mean. Fog light surround is a little large, but the front does look great.

I like the front but it may be a bit over the top, they could have eliminated the fog lights all together for a cleaner look!

thanks for the review...pretty much backs ups what I was thinking. IMO the ///M looks a hell of a lot better then the c63 and i think your pictures back that up.

the c63 maybe better on paper in a str8 line but every AMG driver I have ever pulled up next to never seems to want anything to do with a little competition...mostly rich wives wearing oversized shades or corporate types too busy on the blackberry to pay attention to the road...

Hahahaha!!! I agree!!! I should say that I do own a highly customized mostly straight from Affalterbach C55 DTM AMG!!! It really pulls very, very, very hard, but, it is also a much more expensive car and even then, I like the M better when it comes down to curbs and the like!!!

Footie , this time I have to disagree with you big time.
I've been in several C-classes and I wasn't impressed. It felt cheap and looked cold for a Mercedes. In the german trio the new C-class has the worst interior. The press seem to feel the same as me, particulary the german press.

I cant comment on C63 since I only seen the car from the outside but since it cost more than other C-classes I hope the interior is better because in normal C-classes I wasn't impressed at all.

Other than the interior I like the C-class. In Avantgarde trim the car is sexy and C63 is hot as hell to look at.

The interior of the C63 is very different from a regular C-Class, the seats alone set the interior in an entirely different stage/environment. You really have to see these. The steering wheel is also exceedingly nice with the big aluminum paddle shifters and the middle council has some improved gadgetry. The speedo and the like are also entirely different and the speedo actually turns red in order to up shift. Door panels etc… are also covered in Napa leather and real CF trim. Very, very nice!!!! Only thing that I found really ugly was the middle pop up screen!! Good thing it hides below a cover!!! Now the regular C-Class does leave something to be desired, but have you looked at the 325!!!!! I owed one for a couple of months and sold it, it sucks!!!!!!! Hahahaha!!!

yes I've been in various C-classes and various 3-series. 3-series is better overall. The new Audi A4 also has some cheap materials in some places, makes me wonder if Audi is starting to save money. I guess I have to buy a japanese car if I want quality

Hahaha!! Well, Japanese cars IMO are the best bang for your buck!!! Really!!! But I really do like German cars better even though the price tag is higher. At the end of the day, they feel better and are more fun!!!

If Mercedes had provided a manual gearbox like that in the SLK then I could have seen it as a worthy alternative to me getting an M3 but being solely an automatic ruled it out right from the start.

Great car though with the looks of a DTM and the engine to match.
Wow, I guess my experience is completely different. I'ma have to completely disagree.

There is no such thing as a manual AMG! But anyway, the interior of the 63 is not bad at all!

There is things I like on both cars and things I don't like.

Since I wouldn't be tracking a heavy car like this. I would choose the C63 for driving on the streets. The raw power is just to much to pass up.

defnitely the M3 looks alot better for sure, but lets not all sing "gumbaya!"
and see that the emperor doesnt have better clothes.

MB, Audi and ISF of that matter marketing strategy is not to WOW! everyone on the street with its fender flares, wheels and such. They are more subtle road killers on the roads and some people like that.

AMG division for it 40th Anniversary promised and deliver a powerful blow of mass HP/TQ power to the market place this year. It is illustrated by it CLK55 in black edition and this new C63 AMGs.

We are not even talking about them with their optional Performance package optioned car yet. Lbs for lbs torque C63 has the nos and it can deliver it as illustrated by Motortrend Mano-Mano Comparo of the ISF. M3 and C53.

Yes the emperor has no clothes, lets be real. Which makes some of us think twice, well me at least. The last thing I would like to believe after my e92 /M purchase is that I am the king of my Class, and have a lady with a c63 AMG blow me away. Mind you, around 80-90% of this torque can be delivered at pretty much any RPMs, now thats something to think about.

Im still scare, but thanks to the company of my /M boys I feel safe. For in nos. there is strength. But are these the nos. we are just concerned about, lets ask yourselves that.
