E90 M3 vs C63 AMG (2 reviews)

I dunno if it is a repost but I haven't come across these two on this forum. First one is German the M3 wins, second one is Italian and the C63 wins narrowly. Notice the discrepancies in the C63 0-200 times from 15.3 which is definitely DCT beatable to 14.4 which is most probably not. I personally find the 14.4 time hard to believe because its deep in M5 territory and faster than both the E/CLS 63 and the new RS6 Avant.

The only thing I really like from the MB is the interior.

But the exterior design... TERRIBLE. I wouldn't buy the car just because of that.

The exterior isn't terrible, it's just different. One thing the Mercedes does have by the bucket load is attitude, the exhaust pipes, the styling and noise, it just shouts out 'Don't mess with me'.

The M3 is much more understated which suit me just fine.

I would have love to read the full article but it was full of typos, it became uncomprehensible for me. But I can read Photos, thats universal.
