Driver's Republic M3 vs C63 vs ISF

This is a superb triple test review of the E90 M3 against it's main competitors, as well as some of the oldies.

We've seen it many times before, but the track test results speak volumes about the achievement BMW have made with the new M3! Enjoy.

Great article, one of the best I've seen and the M3 comes out on top!

C63 is 4 door so I will always favour the E92 M3

You must drive straight to work each morning and then straight home each night, no corners on the way, hey.

Lets not be so harsh on the C63, yes the car won't handle as well as the M3 but its not that bad. The handling of the C63 isn't that far off with the M3 and you guys have to give Mercedes some credit for creating a car that is much closer in terms of handling than the previous AMG cars.

Last time I checked, it was said that the C63 actually is the first AMG that handles. It isn't bad at all. Just not E92 M3 good at handling.

I think as a car enthusiast, we should respect and admire each other's car instead of putting them down and claiming which is more superior. Lets just get along with each other.

i don't disagree with you at all, you are right its just that some people prefer one to the other, some people like power and some people like handling, both of them offer it but m3 > c63 at handling and m3 < c63 at power.
